Downsizing our city staff
Dear City Council and Editor: I am writing in response to your article last Wednesday, April 14 re: Community services take big hit in budget reduction. I find it inconceivable that our budget has caused us as a city to spiral out of control to the point that we are looking at eliminating just about all city positions. I am very disheartened to think that community services will essentially shut down and everything will be outsourced. I know that sanitation brings in over $1.5 million to the general fund. I know that citizens and visitors alike view Claremont as a small town, beautiful community where everyone knows and cares for you: including city workers. I have nothing but admiration for the people caring for our community. I myself, have had many, many contacts with not only sanitation and park workers, but also city staffers. I have found them all to be courteous and so helpful. If we outsource all these services, who will care for and look after us as we are now? More importantly, if downsizing were necessary, I would hope that you would look at your personnel very carefully. Do you know that there are 5 or more veterans serving our community? Three are in the sanitation department. Our city prides itself on caring for those currently serving in the armed services. Are we going to show that same caring and concern for our veterans serving our city now? I truly believe they must be given consideration over others. I sincerely hope our city managers are looking everywhere they can to keep our city workers and departments intact. Let’s not lose our community’s sense of caring for its citizens.

I don’t even smoke! Just because some other cities have lost their collective minds does NOT mean that Claremont has to follow. How about we demonstrate an example of sane, rational, liberty-loving governance. Surely the Community Services Commission has better things to spend its time on. Or, maybe not. Maybe they really are incredibly bored. In which case, how about we give them a 6-month leave of absence. But, surely the city council has some real issues on which it could more productively spend its time.

Changes at the School of Theology spur funding embargo by Methodist Church

T

he Claremont School of Theology is undergoing some major changes in programs and curriculum that school officials hope will bring more diversity to the campus.

But the Methodist Church, which historically has been a major source of funding for CST, recently put a funding embargo in place against the institution, citing the changes as a cause for concern for the church. The Methodist Church provides roughly $800,000 in funding each year to CST, representing about 8 percent of the school’s annual budget. The embargo was put in place between February and June 2010. Called the Claremont University Project, CST’s ambitious plan envisions a transformation in how today’s religious leaders are trained in contemporary American society. By rethinking and retooling the classical models of theological education, CTS hopes to promote interreligious cooperation by opening their doors to a variety of religious traditions, including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and others. “The University Project in essence will establish a new institution side by side with CST that will broaden the curriculum to help people understand the differences among religions and to be able to respect people with different religious beliefs,” said CST President Jerry Campbell. “By working and learning side by side with people of different beliefs, we can better address the world’s problems. Those problems cannot be solved until the world’s religions learn how to work together.” Despite the concerns over funding, some CST faculty feel the time has come for the school to become more inclusive if it wants to remain a leading theological institution in the 21st Century. “Theological education is going to have to change, particularly in a context like what Claremont [School of Theology] is moving into or creating,” said Professor Duane Bidwell, who spoke about his own experience leading both Buddhist and Christian ceremonies during a panel discussion on Monday.

Last week, a delegate from the Methodist Church’s university council visited CST to conduct a campus inspection. The representatives interviewed faculty and staff to gather information before a decision is made whether to lift the embargo. “It gave us an opportunity to explain more clearly the goals of the University Project,” Mr. Campbell said. “I think the fear is that we will no longer be doing the training of Methodist clergy. We will continue to do that.” On Monday, CTS held an Alumni and Friends Day in part to promote the new Claremont University Project. There were speakers and panel discussions that focused on the theme of diversity in religious training and the benefits that can come from training

with students from various religious and ethnic backgrounds. The keynote speaker was Reverend J. Edwin Bacon Jr., rector of All Saints Church in Pasadena, who spoke about religious integration in the 21st Century. The Claremont School of Theology was founded in 1885 and moved to Claremont in 1956. It is one of 13 education institutions officially affiliated with the Methodist Church. The financial embargo is the first for the institution, said John Hooten, director of communications at CST. A decision will be made in June by the Methodist Church University Senate on whether to lift the embargo. —Tony Krickl

Book highlights one man’s link with North Korean

laremont native Kurt Pitzer, an author and journalist currently living in New York, recently released his latest book, Eating with the Enemy: How I Waged Peace with North Korea from My BBQ Shack in Hackensack.

Mr. Egan’s charisma and street smarts won over the North Korean delegate and a true friendship developed. He would take Mr. Ryol and others on hunting trips, to baseball games and chaperoned top athletes from North Korea during the 1996 Summer Olympic in Atlanta. “Suddenly Bobby is a very unique link between the 2 governments,” Mr. Pitzer said. “For U.S. intelligence, North Korea is considered a black hole of intelligence.

You can’t do this.’ Your place is where you make it, and we all see things about the world that we would like to see changed. Many don’t act on that and very rarely do we do so in as extreme a measure as this restaurant owner did with the North Koreans.” During the summer of 1987, Mr. Pitzer spent his summer holiday back in Claremont and began his career as a journalist while working as an intern for the Claremont COURIER. “It was great,” Mr. Pitzer said. “I have some very fond memories of the newsroom.” He went on to work for publications such as the Los Angeles Times, People Magazine and The Boston Globe covering some of the world’s most turbulent regions, including the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq. During the fall of Baghdad in 2003, he helped Saddam Hussein’s nuclear mastermind, Mahdi Obeidi, escape Iraq and later co-wrote a book with him entitled The Bomb in My Garden.

Oakmont student educates peers about the meaning of the ‘Pledge of Allegiance’

O

akmont Outdoor School 5th grader Arianna Barreras was stirred up when she found out some of her younger peers didn’t understand the meaning behind the Pledge of Allegiance.
As a result, the 11-year-old took to the video camera and produced a brief video that breaks down each phrase of the pledge and gives a brief explanation of what the words mean. “I thought that many younger kids didn’t understand what it [Pledge of Allegiance] meant so I tried to explain[it] to them,” Arianna said. “I filmed it with Mrs. [Diane] du Plessis and had a couple of my friends play in it.” Entitled Defining the Pledge of Allegiance, the one-minute and 25-second presentation features 9 Oakmont students standing in front of an American flag background and isolating segments of the pledge before joining in unison to recite it in its entirety. The video was uploaded onto Oakmont’s SchoolTube page in early April and has received more than 120 views to date. According to Arianna, the video took one month to make and the Oakmont student would like to expand the video’s presence to more media websites. “I decided on a video so everybody can see it—not just people in California—because there are many other kids that probably don’t understand the

Pledge of Allegiance,” the 5th grader explained. “Eventually, I would like to see my video on different websites.” Ms. du Plessis was impressed with Arianna’s efforts and has encouraged Oakmont students to use media as an outlet to convey ideas. Arianna’s work has already been entered into the Cali-

fornia Media Festival. “Media is a tool the kids can use to express themselves,” the Oakmont computer instructor said. “Arianna totally did the video on her own. She wrote it, shot and got people to be involved in it.” Arianna is also part of Oakmont’s

new Media Club. The club consists of students from first grade through 6th grade who have an interest in media. Ms. du Plessis is the club’s advisor. Each member of the Media Club is required to produce a project that incorporates some of sort of media. The projects range from conducting radiolike broadcasts to creating videos using programs such as the audio editor Audacity and video editor Pinnacle. “The Media Club has been very successful,” Ms. du Plessis said. “This is the first year that we’ve had the club and it has done very well.” Arianna would like to continue using video as a vehicle to help others in the future. In the meantime, she is happy to know that people will be able to benefit from her current project. “If there is anything that people are having trouble with, I would want to do a video about it,” Arianna said. “When I think of the Pledge of Allegiance, I think of something that tells us that we are all one big family and we should all work together regardless of race or religion. And we can decide what to do as a people instead of having somebody telling us what to do.” The pledge video, along with other Oakmont productions can be found at www1.schooltube.com/Organization/OrganizationHome.aspx?oid=121 121.

The ongoing program is chaired by volunteer Jim Keith. Several hundred people gathered at the Candlelight Pavilion for the event featuring a program called “Explore 7 Moments in Time.” The program included a series of dramatic skits illustrating housing situations in which prospective tenants may face unfair housing situations stemming from race, color, national ori-

The cast of the skits, affiliated with the Candlelight Pavilion, included Jackie Lorenzo Cos, Jeremy Magouirk and Melodie Slaughter, along with artistic director John LaLonde.

ers were amazing and handled themselves well on our trips to Florida and Stanford.” Regas put Claremont on the board first when he scored off a penalty kick early to put the Dragons ahead, 3-0. Temple tied the score moments later before Claremont’s Lance Rutledge scored the first try for the Dragons to put the national champions ahead for good. Regas went on to add a conversion score in the contest while Andy Seagal, Brent Baltimore and Spencer

Harrison converted tries for Claremont. This season was Coach Ognall’s first with the Claremont squad. Ognall was named the new head coach last October after former head coach Wally Cox retired following his 20th season. The Dragons still went on to have a successful season and also celebrated victories against Division I teams. Next season they will have a promotion to Division I to go along with their first title. “When the season started—to be honest—I hoped that we would make it to nationals, meaning that we would

finish within the top 16 teams in the division,” Coach Ognall said. “But to take it 3 levels further than that and win the championship is something that I never envisioned at the beginning of the season.” Coach Ognall noted that coachable players who worked hard helped turn the Dragons into championship contenders. Yet he also pointed out other factors as helping Claremont reach the next level. “The players bought into the system and even when things went wrong, they still stuck to the plan,” he said. “We re-

cruited new players this year, specifically players from the football programs that helped our athleticism and depth. We had great senior leadership. And overall, they worked pretty hard.” Though he is no longer head coach, Cox still remains involved with the men’s rugby program. The former coach was thrilled at the team’s success throughout the season. “We’ve been building the program for years and our championship finally came,” Cox said. “This is exciting.”

The other world in our community
by John Pixley

don’t know Daniela Carrillo. I couldn’t point her out or introduce her. I wouldn’t know her if I saw

But I will miss her. That’s because I do know that she is quite articulate and writes well. And that she is passionate and caring, with a big heart. I also know that Daniela Carrillo has pulled off something pretty cool, at least in my book, and that she is someone we can be proud to have in Claremont—if only for another week. Ms. Carrillo is a student at Pomona College who will graduate next week. The way I got to know her was reading an essay by her on the Op-Ed page last month in the Los Angeles Times. Not bad for a college student. And, wow, I thought, she’s in Claremont! What was most impressive about the piece— more impressive than Ms. Carrillo taking the time to write it amid her last-semester studies (or even if she wrote it for a class), more impressive than it being accepted by the Times is how it was not only eloquent but also quite moving. She wrote about being asked to get involved in helping the food service workers at Pomona College to form a union and then realizing that this is more than a trendy political exercise, that the workers are much like her immigrant parents and want to be treated fairly for their hard work but don’t want to get in trouble. The essay is entitled “This food fight is personal.” Indeed, in the piece, Ms. Carrillo got personal, and she did more. She laid it on the line with statements like, “College officials endorse the student committee that holds ‘worker appreciation days,’ but those token efforts serve mainly to pat students on the back for taking initiative. Pomona boasts that its mission is to prepare students ‘for lives of personal fulfillment and social responsibility in a

observer
global context’—but asks us to suspend that sense of responsibility until we leave the campus. I call that hypocrisy.” And indeed, writing such a fine, heartfelt piece, one good enough for the Los Angeles Times to publish, is much more than signing a petition or even marching and chanting for an hour. Too bad she is probably, along with nearly all of the graduating seniors at Pomona and the other colleges here, leaving Claremont after next week. Too bad she and they will most likely take all that energy and passion somewhere else. I feel this way every May, when the Spring semester at the colleges ends and the seniors graduate. May, with commencement weekend, even more than September when the students start classes, is when the colleges shine their brightest. Even as the commencements have changed, with many at new locations and now at different times throughout the weekend rather than nearly all on Sunday afternoon, they are, as always, where it is seen to the fullest and most dramatic extent, why the colleges and Claremont are on the map. It actually starts in April, with a flurry of performances and productions. From the time the students return from Spring break in late March, there is a steady stream of plays, concerts, dance recitals, festivals and other presentations involving or put on by the students. There are things going on every weekend all over

the colleges, even while Claremont McKenna College’s Athenaeum and other speaker programs quiet down during the week, and many are impressive. For example, two weekends ago, I attended two glorious choral concerts—one at Pomona College and the other performed by students from the other undergraduate colleges. I can’t help feeling, at always, that I wish I had gotten to know these bright, talented, energetic students—and now they (well, some of them) are leaving to go elsewhere and on with their lives. Over the years, I have gotten to know and to work with a few of them, coming anywhere from San Francisco to Salt Lake City and from Arizona to New Hampshire, and, in pretty much every instance, it has been a real treat. But, for the most part, it is not easy for those of us who don’t teach or work at the colleges to get to know these students. The fact is that they are more or less in their own world, in their own community, on the campuses. Yes, the colleges are a vital, integral part of Claremont, but they are a separate, distinct part—another community, even another world in Claremont. I have heard this from others, who have tried unsuccessfully to get the students involved in Claremont doings, and I am reminded of it constantly. Often, when I venture onto the campuses or cut through them, I am aware of and grateful for being in Claremont. Just as often, I have the sense, also with gratitude, that I am in another place where I’m privileged to be. “...Taco Tuesdays, which are soooo great here.” The young woman was speaking on her cell phone as she walked by me when I left the Athenaeum at CMC last week. It was Tuesday, and I wondered: What Taco Tuesday? I wish I knew.

I think my dream department is under new management. The quality of color is better and the images are more selective and inventive. The camera work is more involved. The use of long shots, close-ups, overhead, group and establishing shots, is very noticeable and exciting. The themes and story lines are often quite unique and with different moods, attitudes and outlooks.

City council’s defeat of the proposed smoking ban
by Dean E. McHenry, Jr.

T

he discussion by members of the city council of the proposal developed by the Community Services Commission that smoking be prohibited in a variety of outdoor settings in Claremont was more than a disappointment.

view point
ple’s habits or customs. Both Sam Pedroza and Peter Yao argued that council’s role was not to adopt legislation banning people’s customs or habits. If we held to this principle in all cases, segregation in the South would still be around. Indeed, we would have to eliminate most laws which even those opposed to the commission’s proposal believe benefit society. 3. There are many things we accept that may harm us. Corey Calaycay likened smoking to eating French fries, i.e., they are both harmful to our health. Since we face numerous unhealthful situations, the argument “asks,” why pick one over another to be the subject of legislation? Peter Yao picked up on this theme and argued the absurdity of banning driving on freeways because there were carcinogens in the air. The problem, of course, is the degree of potential harm and the potential benefit of the activity—the equation of the risk to one’s health of eating French fries or driving on a freeway with breathing second hand smoke is, even at the lower levels of concentration likely outdoors, faulty. 4. Liberty is an essential American value we must protect. Sam Pedroza argued for “free will.” Presumably, we should have the liberty to do what we want when it comes to where, when and whether to smoke. Corey Calaycay referred to his concern for the protection of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Clearly, banning smoking in several outdoor places

The distortions and misrepresentations that have led to public animosity toward politicians in Washington were clearly evident in the arguments of opponents of the measure. Using these “tools” for political purposes dishonors the Claremont community. The arguments opponents raised have the appearance of reasonableness, but they camouflage or distort reality. Five examples are illustrative: 1. The proponents of the smoking ban do not base their claims on “the facts.” Peter Yao argued that there was no evidence that outdoor smoking, as distinct from indoor smoking, caused harm to individuals. He said he checked the Internet and found no studies on the subject. Furthermore, he asserted that council’s decisions must be based on facts and not feelings. Few of us would disagree with the need to base decisions on “the facts.” Yet, anyone who wishes to check “the facts” by simply Googling “outdoor tobacco smoke” will find that the claim that there have been no studies of the effect of outdoor tobacco smoke is simply untrue and they will find that most conclude that the impact is harmful to people’s health. False assertions should not play a part in council’s decision-making. 2. Laws should not be made to interfere with peo-

would interfere with a form of individual liberty. Its impact on “life” and “the pursuit of happiness” of others, though, is ignored in this kind of argument. 5. Business success is important to our community. Peter Yao argued that businesses came to Village West under certain rules and it was not fair to change those rules, e.g., to ban outdoor smoking in several places. Others noted the importance of the success of business to the well-being of Claremont. As with most of these arguments, there exists a trade-off between the nature of the business, its location within Claremont, and a variety of other factors that have long governed the city’s decisions concerning businesses. Furthermore, as public comment that evening suggested, evidence exists that smoking bans are helpful to many businesses. The complexity of the issue makes all of these claims a poor basis for deciding policy. What we need is debate over the trade-offs—and a compromise that maximizes the wishes of our diverse community. That we did not get at the city council meeting last week (COURIER, May 1, 2010, p. 4). Warning signs in restaurants, a discussion of courtesy in smoking situations, educational materials about the potential harm of various levels of tobacco smoke to ourselves and our neighbors might be a part of that compromise. Yet, with Larry Schroeder the only supporter of the commission’s proposal and no provision for working out such a compromise, we let the distortions and partial-truths decide an important issue. Dean McHenry is a Claremont resident.

Tri-City Mental Health to purchase property for Wellness Center

T

ri-City Mental Health is in the process of purchasing adjacent buildings in Pomona for $1.5 million to develop into a Wellness Center, a key component of a community envisioned plan to create a transformed system of care for residents of Pomona, La Verne and Claremont. The buildings, located at 1403-1407 N. Garey Ave., will provide 8000 square feet of space to house a variety of programs and services designed to promote recovery, resiliency and wellness for people confronting mental health issues. Escrow on the properties is expected to close by June 1. “These are old buildings in need of repair and improvement but we have negotiated a purchase price

that will leave us an adequate amount of money to make the property a beautiful, first class facility and a great addition to our Tri-City Mental Health system of care,” said Executive Director Jesse Duff. Tri-City Mental Health announced the news of the pending purchase of the property at a public hearing to update the community on progress made in implementing the 5 components of a comprehensive Community Services and Supports Plan (CSS) to improve the treatment, outcomes and lives of those suffering with mental illness. More than 100 people attended the meeting of the Tri-City Mental Health Commission at Taylor Hall in Claremont. The CSS Plan, developed in partnership with the

community, launched in 2009 after receiving the first of $14.2 million from the state under the Mental Health Services Act. While plans finalize for the new Wellness Center, Tri-City is offering wellness programs and services out of its mental health center clinic at 2008 N. Garey Ave., Pomona.

Darren Callaway
local businessman, sports fan
Darren Callaway, the fourth generation member of his family to own and manage F & H Tire Company in Pomona, died April 28, 2010 at Pomona Valley Community Hospital Medical Center following a sudden illness. Mr. Callaway was 51 years of age. Born in Merced, California on April 13, 1959, Mr. Callaway came with his family to the local area as a small child. He attended Webb School in Claremont and graduated from Pomona High School in 1977. F & H Tire was founded in the early 1930s by Mr. Callaway’s great-grandfather and has remained in the family ever since.

CLAREMONT IDOL NATIONAL ANTHEM CONTEST The Independence Day Committee is in full prep mode and has begun the selection process of the 2010 Claremont Idol National Anthem Contest. Applications were due at the end of April and auditions will be held on Thursday, May 13 at 7 p.m. Call the Claremont Human Services Department at 399-5490 for information. STUDENT SELECTED FOR SUMMER RESEARCH AT OCCIDENTAL COLLEGE Claremonter Jacob Ortega-Gingrich, class of 2013 at Occidental College in Los Angeles, is one of

back page
approximately 100 students at the college who have been selected to live and work on campus this summer pursuing independent research projects. Mr. Ortega-Gingrich is working with Professor Ron Buckmire in the mathematics department conducting research to study “Sequels and Opera Productions: Expansions and Extensions of the Edwards-Buckmire Model of BoxOffice Revenues.” According to a press release, most students do not participate in research at this level until graduate school. Occidental College is a small liberal arts college located in the Eagle Rock section of northeast Los Angeles. KIDS HELPING OUT The COURIER received word on an uplifting story about two brothers, Eli and Zachary Wakefield, at Sycamore Elementary School who are so worried about losing their teachers they are helping to raise money for the Claremont Educational Foundation $365 campaign. Eli is a kindergartener who dipped into his own piggy bank to make a donation, and Zachary is a 4th grader who is collecting cans to raise money for the campaign. The boys, who reside with their parents Rebecca Kornbluh and Andre Wakefield, live in Claremont. CLAREMONTERS MAKE THE GRADE AT APU Several Claremont residents made the academic Deans’ List at Azusa Pacific University. These students are honored for a fall semester 2009 academic standing of 3.5 or better gradepoint average. The students’ names and majors are: Anne E. Berry (Political Science), Cristina G. Brooks (Social Work), James T. Brooks (Mathematics), Michael II. Dia (Athletic Training), Lauren B. Finalet (Music), Erik A. Nelson (English), Jasmine M. Royse (Psychology), Heather Schlitt (Graphic Design), Andrew C. Shore (Biochemistry), Katie E. Skutvik (Nursing).

CELEBRATE NATIONAL PUBLIC GARDENS DAY AT RSABG Our mayor, Linda Elderkin, will present a certificate of recognition to Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden this Friday, May 7 and join a morning tour to help celebrate National Public Gardens Day. Two tours, led by experts, will highlight RSABG’s unique resources and mission at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Tours are free with RSABG membership or paid admission. In addition, visitors can receive a free or renewed subscription to Better Homes and Gardens magazine upon payment of annual membership dues to RSABG. Visit www.rsabg.org for more information or call 625-8767. WHAT YOU’RE SAYING ABOUT THE COURIER • Lex in the City is a favorite. Generally fine, but you need a copy editor instead of whatever machine most of you have too much faith in. • Favorites: Obits, Police Blotter, letters to the editor. • Police Blotter—most favorite along with city council, letters to the editor, things about going ons [sic] in city. • Too much politics, need more history. • Favorites: Photo coverage and quality, “comments,” Lex in the City, people stories, Darrow drawings! Least favorite: Sports stories. • Favorites: High school coverage, Police Blotter, community news. • Favorites: Local news, high school sports. • Favorites: Obituaries (tell us the cause of death if o.k. with family), commission/council reporting, features on notable speakers at the Colleges.
Until next time, Sammy
