The blame game
Dear Editor: It is preposterous to blame the Democrats and/or President Obama for all that is wrong with the recent health care legislation. If the Republicans had done what they are supposed to do as elected representatives and ENGAGED with the Democrats to modify the legislation, we’d have a better law. The completely contrarian posture of the Republican party is detrimental to all Americans and to our democracy. Grow up Republican legislators and Republican party and get yourselves busy doing what you were elected to do—legislate. Being petty, spiteful, vindictive and exploiting people’s racial biases by doing everything possible to discredit the administration of the first African American President of the United States is disgusting. Even two-year old children eventually turn three and stop saying “NO!” to everything. We are facing tremendous challenges as individuals and as a nation so I’d like to see bi-partisan problem-solving NOW!

Smith may have come to this conclusion because of the media’s coverage of groups like the Tea Party, many of whom profess that they are Christian and yet they are opposed to health care reform. Given that Christians are the most charitable people, according to Ms. Lowe, one would think that they would be leading the charge towards providing health care to even the poorest among us. “If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and not be answered” – Proverbs 21:13 The truth is that many Christian groups do support health insurance reform; in fact there are many that would support a national health care system. Look into Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, Faith in Public Life or Faithful America to name just a few. We Christians do a great job of giving to charity, the problem is that it is mainly at times of acute disaster. I would like to see my fellow Christians start thinking proactively and support social programs that help make our fellow citizens less likely to need charity in the first place. “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime” – Chinese Proverb.

Because we have taken the first step to have our homes assessed for their current energy efficiency we can begin planning for what low-cost steps we can take to reduce our energy consumption. One correction to the discussion of energy saving retrofits: Many people think that they have to do expensive and major things like dual pane windows or solar panels, when the least expensive retrofitting projects actually are best to do first. Adding insulation actually saves the most on utility bills and reduces energy use. (President Obama recently said, “Insulation is sexy.”) It is significantly more cost effective for home owners to invest in insulation and caulking before even considering purchasing large solar systems and costly windows. We invite you to join us in getting your energy use assessment and become part of the Sustainable Claremont goal of one percent of homeowners in Claremont who are assessing their energy use by this summer. Assess first and then move step by step toward solutions. “Reduce first, then Produce.”

Health care for the uninsured
Dear Editor: I regret that Donna Lowe’s long letter in the April 21st COURIER said not a word about the only point I raised: health care for the uninsured. Does she support “Obamacare’s” law to cover millions of currently uninsured Americans? And what defense does she have for the Christians who vociferously and aggressively attacked that part of the reform?

Response to Christians and health care
Dear Editor: Donna Lowe wrote in response to Robert Smith’s letter that Christian conservatives are more charitable than liberals. I think Ms. Lowe missed the point that Mr. Smith was making. I believe his point was that it is surprising that many people who are opposed to health insurance reform are Christian. Mr.

Dear Editor: Thanks for telling our story so thoroughly and capturing the spirit of our early Earth Day event at Pilgrim Place (COURIER, Wednesday, April 21.)

Special education teachers retain jobs at RIF hearings

E

leven special education teachers are no longer a part of the Claremont Unified School District Reduction in Force (RIF) as a result of a decision at the RIF hearings on Wednesday.
According to Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Devon Freitas, the teachers were initially part of the RIF process as part of a conservative move, but the district intended to retain the teachers’ jobs. “These are our teachers who teach students with spe-

cial needs and even though they received notices, we intended to do everything we could to bring them back on,” Ms. Freitas said. “We’re pleased that we get to keep these teachers.” The RIF process began by CUSD board approval on March 4th with 116 employees receiving potential layoff notices. The board rescinded the RIF notices on March 15th, resulting in 42 employees being retained. More teachers may be retained as early as May when the judge gives his ruling from the RIF hearings that took place on Wednesday and Thursday. Claremont Faculty Association Negotiations Chair Joe Tonan be-

lieves the district could have been more sensitive to the special education teachers and avoided giving the instructors layoff notices. “These teachers have been spending sleepless nights not knowing whether they would or would not lose their jobs.” Mr. Tonan said. “Other districts were able to handle it without RIFing those teachers. I would ask if this ever happened again—and hopefully this will never happen again—that you would look at special ed teachers, how other districts handle it and find other ways to exclude them to begin with.”

District/Faculty Association negotiations at a standstill

cusd news

C

laremont Unified School District Superintendent Terry Nichols announced to the Board of Education during Thursday night’s board meeting a decision by the district’s negotiations team declaring an impasse in district-union talks with the Claremont Faculty Association.
The announcement came on the heels of the most recent negotiations meeting between CUSD and CFA on April 15th. Superintendent Nichols said district representatives are meeting with legal counsel in order to submit paperwork to the Public Employee Relations Board in order to obtain a mediator to continue negotiations. “We were unable to reach an agreement with the Claremont Faculty Association and as a result, the district has no choice but to begin the process and declare impasse,” he said. “It is our hope that the state mediator can assist in determining a resolution and provide some eq-

uitable solution that saves jobs in the district and allows the district to balance the budget.” The mediator will work with both CUSD and CFA in an attempt to bring both sides to an agreement. If an agreement does not occur through mediation and the groups go through every step in the Public Employee Relations Board impasse process, then the CUSD board may unilaterally give its final and best offer to impose a contract with CFA. Superintendent Nichols discussed the possibility of retaining certificated employees through the use of 6 furlough days next year. He said if all district employees agreed to the measure and the district continued forward with its program cuts, then the district would “avoid any employee losing his or her job during the 2010-11 school year.” Claremont Faculty Association Negotiations Chair Joe Tonan was surprised by Dr. Nichols’ announcement. The CFA representative said the superintendent’s statement was never proposed in recent negotiations. “He [Nichols] in essence just made a proposal that we never heard at the [bargaining] table,” Mr. Tonan said. “By him doing that, in my estimation it’s an unfair labor practice. We have never heard those words presented ever at the table and presented in public without taking it to the table first. It was shocking to me and I hope that it will never happen again.”

Board votes on policies, agreements ritten communication to the board, the East San Gabriel Valley Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) and a contract with KAR construction were just a few of several items the CUSD board voted on. The board voted 4-1 to deny written communication from being presented at board meetings. Board member Steven Llanusa was the only board representative to vote in favor of the measure, citing it would give the community another way to voice their thoughts to the board. Board vice president Beth Bingham said a problem associate with having written communication would be having to make a decision on which notes to read—a concern nonexistent for those who attend board meetings. By approving its SELPA agreement for next school year, the board continues a local agreement that provides free public education to students with disabilities. SELPA includes other districts such as Bonita Unified School District and Glendora Unified School District. A unanimous vote will allow the district to enter into a contract with KAR Construction for the development of new bleachers for Claremont High School’s football field. CUSD surveyed 7 different companies before choosing KAR Construction. The $644,000 price tag for the bleachers will be paid for out of the Recreation Assessment District Fund. CHS Thespians, Wolfgang recognized he Claremont High School Thespian Troupe and the CHS Wolfgang Hip-Hop team were the latest recipients of the district’s Certificates of Excellence for their efforts in their respective fields. Several CHS Thespians finished in the top one percent in the state in multiple categories at the California State Thespian Festival in March while the Wolfgang captured its first national championship since 2007.

Citywide smoking ordinance on council agenda Tuesday

S

mokers beware. The city council will consider a new ordinance that would ban the smoking of any tobacco products in many outdoor areas within the city.
If approved at Tuesday night’s city council meeting, smokers will be barred from lighting up in the Village West Public Plaza, restaurants’ outdoor dining areas, outdoor bar/pub patios, hotel common areas, at the Farmer’s Market and at outdoor public gathering places for planned events. The proposal was spearheaded by the Community Services Commission, which initially discussed banning smoking in the Village Plaza at a meeting back in March. Commissioner Gary Garfield believes the city council is responsible for monitoring and limiting where people smoke in public places. “It’s the obligation of every public official to protect the health and welfare of the citizens they represent,” Mr. Garfield said. A number of cities in southern California have al-

Sure indoors, or close to schools or playgrounds, but if you’re going to ban smoking, why not ban drivers from putting car exhaust into the air? That’s even worse for the environment Jon Crawford
Claremont resident

Rancho Cucamonga resident Derek Santos, 20 smokes a cigarette while relaxing with his girlfriend Tara Kim, 20, outside of Starbucks on Wednesday in Claremont. Under new rules being proposed by city council smoking on public sidewalks and restaurant patios would become illegal.

ready passed similar bans on smoking in public areas, particularly where food is served or where many people congregate. Those cities include Burbank, Beverley Hills, Pasadena, Glendale and Santa Monica. “Claremont should have been at the forefront of this initiative years ago,” Mr. Garfield. “We need to be proactive and do what’s right for the safety of the citizens of this city now and in the future.” Nonetheless, some local smokers scoffed at the proposal upon hearing about the agenda item. “Smoking doesn’t inconvenience or have such harmful effects on people in outdoor settings to warrant such drastic measures,” said Jon Crawford, while enjoying a cigarette outside of The Press Restaurant on Wednesday night. “Sure indoors, or close to schools or playgrounds, but if you’re going to ban smoking, why not ban drivers from putting car exhaust into the air? That’s even worse for the environment.” Smoker Greg Chrappa was sipping on his Coffee Bean coffee and reading in the Village Plaza on Wednesday afternoon. He said he understands health concerns from non-smokers, but feels that local government is overstepping its bounds if such an ordinance is passed. “I always try to take people around me into consideration when I smoke,” Mr. Chrappa said. “If it’s crowded, I’ll go smoke on the street corner or somewhere less crowded. But I do enjoy my freedom to smoke where I want to, especially when I’m outdoors.

If they ban smoking, I’ll probably not go to the Press anymore. Going to cafes is such a big part of my life, but if I can’t smoke, I’ll come out here less often and just go somewhere else where I’m allowed to.” One merchant whose bar/restaurant attracts many smokers said he wasn’t worried about his business being negatively affected if the law goes into effect. “We’ve always obeyed smoking laws and while the transition of those laws has sometimes been difficult, I think in general they are appreciated by a majority of customers,” said Steve Rudicel, owner of the Press Restaurant. Smoking is already banned in the Claremont Wilderness Park as a fire safety precaution. State law currently forbids smoking in children’s playgrounds and within 20 feet of government building entrances and exits. Back in 2008, the city passed further restrictions on public smoking in Claremont. An initiative pushed by former Mayor Ellen Taylor banned smoking in all 22 public parks in the city with fines for violators up to $100. If the new ordinance passes, businesses will be required to post signs on their property announcing the ban. The city will also post signs in public areas to notify residents of the new law.

Two teens arrested after harassing victims
On Friday April 16, two teenagers were arrested for robbery after separate incidents involving stolen cell phones near the Village. At 3:45 p.m., the 15-year-old boys approached a juvenile and repeatedly challenged him to a fight. The boy was walking with friends in the area of Berkeley Avenue just north of Bonita Avenue. One of the suspects approached the 14-year-old Claremont boy from behind and took his cell phone from his pocket. He told the victim if he wanted the phone back, he would have to fight for it. Fearing for his safety, the boy fled the area. At 4:30 p.m., the 2 suspects were walking near Indian Hill Boulevard and Friday April 16 A prowler was seen in the backyard of a home on the 1100 block of Alamosa Drive. Around 10:10 p.m., a resident at the home saw a man walking towards a refrigerator on his backyard porch. The resident called police to report the unknown man, who was last seen walking northbound through the yard. Police responded to the area but were unable to locate the man. He is described Second Street when they approached another 14-year-old boy. They challenged the Ontario resident to a fight and one of the attackers grabbed the victim’s cell phone from his hand. After the victim threatened to call the police, the suspect returned the phone. Police were eventually called and located the teenagers walking on Oberlin Avenue and Second Street. Police also located both victims who were able to identify the boys as the robbers. The 15-year-old boys, both Claremont residents, were arrested on suspicion of robbery and transferred to Los Padrinos Juvenile Detention Center in Downey.

After a fight with his wife at 7:30 a.m., a 65-year-old resident left his Monticello Road home on foot. He left behind his wallet and cell phone. When the man did not return home, his wife became concerned due to his medical condition involving diabetes and called police. Police requested the use of a helicopter and a canine unit from the Pomona Police Department but were unable to locate the man. Around 8 p.m., the man walked into the Claremont Police Department lobby and stated he was tired and wanted to rest. Paramedics attended to the man to check on his medical condition. He was cleared to go home and his wife came to pick him up from the lobby. Tuesday, April 20 A man and a woman were arrested for drug possession. Around 4:15 p.m., an officer on patrol on Sycamore Avenue saw a car pull into a driveway. A passenger exited the vehicle and began to approach the front door of the home. When the man noticed the police car approaching, he quickly turned around and got back into the vehicle. The officer tailed the vehicle as it drove away from the home and made contact with the occupants as they parked on Sycamore Avenue. Upon further investigation, the officer found methamphetamine in the man’s pocket and another baggie in the driver’s bra. A pipe used for smoking methamphetamine was also found in the vehicle. Charles Layland, 37, of Claremont and Kelley McDonald, 39, of Upland were arrested for possession of illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Film festival fever
by Jan Wheatcroft

T

his year Claremont will have hosted two independent film festivals (not counting film showings through the Claremont Colleges) by the beginning of summer.

In January Charlotte Cousins brought The Smogdance Film Festival to the Laemmle Theater on Indian Hill Blvd for the first time. Smogdance was originally formed by Joan Weldon as part of the dA Center for the Arts in the Pomona Arts Colony. It provides a place for local and international amateur and student filmmakers to show their films and is a juried competition with prizes awarded to the top entries. Charlotte was involved in the festival in 1999 and then in 2002 she became its director. Although no longer the Smogdance director (it will continue to be run under dA’s auspices) Charlotte will continue her vision to expand a well-recognized film festival as a venue to reach out into the community and connect the audience with new and emerging filmmakers as well as to compete with other local film festivals such as the LA Film Festival and the Palm Springs Film Festival. She is concentrating on developing a new venue centered here in Claremont and benefiting The Claremont Forum and the Prison Library Project. The plan is to gather together a group of former volunteers and audience members to develop a new festival with its own organization and a new festival name. This year a call goes out for entries to filmmakers in the categories of comedy, animation, documentaries and open/experimental for a length of under 40 minutes. The plan is also to continue presenting these

films at the Laemmle Theater in conjunction with the LA Latino Film Festival. It is felt that the richness of this past festival was due to its draw of filmmakers to submit and attend from all over the United States as well as from Europe and Iran. The Iranian filmmaker even came to Claremont to view the films and was impressed with our community and the artistic efforts as a way to reach out and build bridges across boarders. After each showing, the directors shared their experiences with audience members who had just viewed the films and wished to express their opinions. Charlotte expects to have the new festival up and running by April 2011. Watch for it. Vince Turner hosts and directs the provocatively titled Claremont Five Second Film Festival, now in its second year. A local group of coffee buffs who meet at Some Crust Bakery got together in 2001 and formed a tongue in cheek group called The Claremont Community College which became a non-profit corporation three years ago. Their aim was to sponsor families at Christmas working through a Montclair cooperative. They pro-

vided these families with a dinner, Santa Claus and gifts, and a gift certificate for each family at a local market. The Five Second Film Festival arose from a need to raise funds to continue to service families. The format is to exhibit about 12 major films of up to 15 minutes in length plus some assorted mini-pieces. There actually have been some 5 second films shown. Vince says they advertise for the films on a service called “Without a Box” which is the premier site where filmmakers go to locate festivals and submit their films. Students and local artists are also encouraged to enter. A submissions committee makes the final choice of which films will be selected. Films are submitted from everywhere and after the showing the audience is invited to meet the various filmmakers. The date for this year’s Five Second Film Festival is Thursday, May 6 at 7 p.m. at the Laemmle Theater. There will also be a champagne reception before the showing at the Back Abbey from 5:30 to 7 p.m. To find out more information go to the festival website www.5secondfilmfestival.com I have attended both of these festivals. I find them both rich and entertaining experiences. The amount of work that goes into the preparation and planning is enormous but the gratification is great as well. To provide a place for emerging artists to present their art is a valuable contribution, and to provide a community with two opportunities to see and discuss what is going on in the world of film provides another dimension to the film equation. I hope to see you at the Laemmle on May 6.

Political action and the Claremont Chamber
Dear Editor: On behalf of the Claremont Chamber of Commerce, I would like to respond to the concerns expressed in a recent letter to the editor regarding the funding by the California Chamber of Commerce of the political ads concerning the race for governor. First: No funds paid by the Claremont Chamber to the California Chamber of Commerce were used to fund the ads in question. Second: The Claremont Chamber does not contribute any funds to the state or national chambers’ political action committees. Third: Several years ago the Claremont Chamber adopted the position that it would not back individual candidates for any political office. Fourth: The Claremont Chamber does take public policy positions or support or oppose pending legislation. These positions require an action by the Claremont Chamber Board of Directors. The positions taken by the Claremont Chamber are often contrary to the positions taken by the California and the United States chambers of commerce. Fifth: No funds paid by the city of Claremont to the Claremont Chamber of Commerce for the Claremont Chamber’s operation of the visitor’s center were used to fund the subject ads. Funds provided by the city for the visitor’s center are all used locally for such purposes as

The role of government
Dear Editor: I am really tired of hearing people rant and rave that Obama is a “socialist.” Socialism is a form of economy in which the means of production are owned by the public or the government. Capitalism is a form of economy in which the means of production are owned by private individuals. It is obvious that the United States subscribes to the latter form of economy far more closely than the former. Recent bailouts

because of dire economic conditions do not come close to government ownership of the means of production. It would seem, then, that the ranting and raving is all precipitated by the very marginal tendency in our country toward public control of capitalism. Here, it seems to me, there is nothing new going on in the Obama administration—not even in the last half century. It has long been clear that public intervention is necessary in order to maintain a reasonable balance between capitalism and the public welfare. Too bad! Wouldn’t it be nice if private owners of the means of production would protect their workers with safe operations, adequate reimbursement for their labor and old-age security for those who have served well? But they don’t. The instinct of capitalism is to make money and, unfortunately, has little to do with serving the wider community. Consider coal mining in West Virginia. Pure capitalism? No. Fortunately, the public has asserted that certain safety standards must be upheld and government agencies inspect mines to assure that safety standards are in place. Even then, we have a situation where some private owners refuse to comply and disasters occur. How much worse would it be if private owners were simply allowed to be “self-governing?” In its pure form, capitalism does not provide any incentive for protection of the worker or for the public welfare. Since the 19th Century, the United States

has worked toward a modified version of capitalism designed to promote social justice. Is this Socialism? No. It is a necessary attempt to make our Constitution work by promoting the general welfare and still allowing private entrepreneurship. Do Conservatives today really want to live in a world of pure capitalism? Do they really want to eliminate governments and promote anarchy? What really do they want? I would very much like to hear some of our Conservative authors tell us exactly what it is that they really want—not the vague familiar “less government” or “lower taxes”" but actual programs or laissez faire “freedoms.” Personally, I like eating food that I know with some confidence is healthy. I like driving on efficient Interstate highways. I like feeling that children can go to public schools and be educated rather than being forced into factories to support starving families. Do Conservatives really believe that these things are possible without government?

Arla J. Elston
The Reverend Arla J. Elston of Claremont died on April 15, 2010 at Pilgrim Place. She was 81. Rev. Elston was born in Woodbine, Iowa on March 21, 1929 to Floyd and Ethel Harvey Elston. Following a public school education in Woodbine, she went on to graduate from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa and Wayne State College in Wayne, Nebraska. After teaching public school music for several years, Rev. Elston finished studies at the Graduate Theological Seminary of Phillips University in Enid, Oklahoma. She then served as minister of music and education in the First Christian Churches of Cushing, Oklahoma; Rogers, Arkansas; and Clarksville, Tennessee. Rev. Elston was employed by the Arkansas Council of Churches’ Migrant Ministry until she was ordained in 1964 and became campus minister for Arkansas Christian Churches at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. Other positions she held include associate minister for the Christian Church in Forth Worth, Texas and executive director for campus ministry for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada. In 1975, Rev. Elston became the min-

minister, Christian Church commission chairperson and board member
tivities including a “first” Community Thanksgiving Worship Service. Rev. Elston chaired the regional Commission on the Ministry of her denomination and served on the General Board of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and its Administrative Committee. She was also vice moderator and moderator of the Northwest Regional Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). In October 1994, Rev. Elston retired from active ministry and moved to Pilgrim Place the following year. In retirement, she enjoyed many good times with her friends and extended family and participated in numerous activities at Pilgrim Place. Rev. Elston is survived by her first cousin, Elton Elston of Long Boat Key, Florida; and by many second cousins. Memorial services took place on April 22, 2010 at the First Christian Church of Pomona.

Veta Campbell
LaVeta “Veta” Dea Sinclair Campbell, wife of Claremont School of Theology president, the Rev. Dr. Jerry Campbell, died on April 19, 2010 at San Antonio Community Hospital in Upland. Age 64, she was surrounded by her family as she succumbed to acute respiratory distress syndrome caused by sarcoidosis and pneumonia. “All of us at CST are saddened by the loss of such a wonderful individual,” said Sandra N. Bane, chairperson of the institution’s board of trustees. “Veta had a ‘can do’ spirit and a quiet strength about her, and a gracious soul. She touched my heart and held me up many times, as I am sure others who have worked with her or got to know her on campus can also attest. I can’t imagine the emotions that both Veta and Jerry have endured over the last several weeks. They are two of the nicest, kindest and most courageous people I have ever known.

teacher, church trustee, volunteer
“As an extended community, we have been richly blessed and supported by them. Now, as a community, we grieve the loss of Veta, and our hearts break for Jerry and their daughter, Denise, but we need to look to the future and count our blessings as Veta would have us remember them.” Ms. Campbell’s genuine interest in people and wide-ranging intellectual curiosity, combined with her gracious and easy manner, made her an ideal friend and confidante. She was the “perfect partner” for a college administrator, said her husband, Rev. Dr. Campbell, Claremont School of Theology’s sixth president. College sweethearts, the couple met at McMurry University in Abilene, Texas and married in 1967. “Veta was always genuinely interested in others, and really paid attention to what they said,” Rev. Dr. Campbell said. “She would remember everything about people her husband for several years and served as a trustee of the Pasadena Methodist Foundation. Ms. Campbell received her bachelor’s degree in education from McMurry, and her master’s degree in education from East Texas State University in Commerce. For many years, she taught first and third grade. After a move to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, however, a friend needed help with her new store, Purple Puddle Flowers & Gifts, so Ms. Campbell quit teaching to become manager. The store prospered under her care, and it is still successful today. On every campus where the Campbells have served, said Rev. Dr. Campbell, Ms. Campbell always enjoyed getting to know students and doing what she could to make them feel at home and help them succeed. Therefore, he has established a student scholarship fund in her name. Ms. Campbell is survived by her husband, Jerry Campbell; her daughter, Denise Renee Campbell of Pasadena; her brothers, John Sinclair of Salinas and James Sinclair of Muleshoe, Texas; and her sister, Francis Griswold of West Monroe, Louisiana. A public memorial service is tentatively scheduled for Friday, May 14, 2010 at First United Methodist Church, Pasadena. Time and details will be posted at www.forveta.blogspot.com as soon as the arrangements have been made.

and she always tried to be of help.” Ellen Litney, president of the Rembrandt Club of Pomona College, concurred. “Veta cared deeply for people and seemed to specialize in helping newcomers find friends,” she commented. “As one of our board members, she has helped so many new arrivals to Claremont integrate into the community.” A member of First United Methodist Church in Pasadena, Ms. Campbell served the church and congregation in many ways. She was particularly proud of having chaired the committee that oversaw the redesign and retrofitting of the church’s historic chapel. She also started and co-taught an adult class with

Reading the Tea Leaves
by Dave Nemer

T

he emergence of the Tea Party movement is the most significant political development in the United States since the momentous elections of 2008. Spawned as a protest against rising taxes (despite the fact that taxes decreased for 95 percent of Americans soon after Barack Obama took office) the Tea Party has been unabashedly vocal and visible. This has resulted in extensive coverage by the news industry which favors sound bites over depth and substance. A close look at the tactics and evolving strategy of the Tea Party movement reveals a political phenomenon which has clear historical parallels and constitutes a formidable challenge to the future prospects of the Republican Party. Public awareness of the Tea Party movement derives mostly from TV news snippets of TP rallies. A recent rally called “Tax Day Tea Party” took place at the intersection of Foothill and Deer Creek Boulevards in Rancho Cucamonga. Motivated by a combination of curiosity and intense political disagreement, I went to the rally. The experience was both discouraging and enlightening. A friend joined me in this dubious adventure. We carried fairly large signs which said, “Support President Obama for a Healthy America” and “Tea Party Dupes! Don’t Let Big Corpo Use You! Wake Up!” We were aboveboard, straightforward political dissenters. We were not infiltrators or saboteurs, as others have been according to reports. There were about 150-200 people at the rally. Ages ranged from 8 to 80, with males slightly outnumbering females. Probably the most conspicuous characteristic of the crowd was that it appeared to be at least 95 percent white. Based on that statistical variable, the group did not comprise a representative cross section of the U.S., California, or Rancho Cucamonga for that matter. We didn’t hide from the Tea Partiers positioned on Foothill, but we did not attempt or intend to disrupt their rally. As we “walked the gauntlet” with our signs, the TPers’ reactions were negative, but not threatening or even inappropriate considering the circumstances. We thought their political views were absolutely ridiculous and, of course, the feeling was mutual. There were several comments to the effect that Obama is a “corporatist” and that we are the real dupes. I tried to point out to one gentleman that everything the Tea Party does is exactly what the big corporations want, while President Obama often promotes legislation which corporations oppose. But the TPer just wanted to talk about bailouts. He didn’t believe that any bailouts were necessary to save the economy, “So, you guys are the dupes!” Other TPers simply told us, “Stop drinking the KoolAid” in a mocking voices. Some just yelled, “Boo, boo, boo” as we walked by. The gaps seemed unbridgeable. Most of the TPers’ signs were about taxes which appeared

to be their main issue. It is possible that some individuals in the crowd were deep thinkers, but our limited contact did not afford a good opportunity to determine that. Politics aside, the TPers at this rally seemed like decent people. Most of them would probably be nice neighbors and OK to sit near at a Quakes game. It is unfortunate that political beliefs affect the world we live in and really do matter. On all issues of political importance we seem to have irreconcilable differences with the TPers. We chose a relatively quiet place to stand on the north side of Foothill about half a block west of the TPers. At that location our signs were clearly visible to the people driving by. There were four categories of responses. About a third of the people showed no reaction to the TPers or to us. Another third loved the TPers. They honked and cheered as they drove by, until they got to us, at which point they quickly made real mean faces. About a fourth of the people looked glum as they drove by the TPers and then seemed surprised and sincerely grateful to see us with a second opinion. Finally, a small number of people appeared to like the TPers and appeared to like us as well. Maybe they were just excited to see the First Amendment thriving in America. One very frightening incident occurred. A car exiting a parking lot stopped just a few feet away from us, and a violently angry man, his entire body shaking with rage and his face contorted with hate, shouted obscenities at us, made hostile gestures, and threatened to physically attack us. We felt quick surges of adrenalin. Then, to our great relief, the car drove off. The antagonist obviously resented our politics, but he did not appear to be part of the Tea Party. His behavior actually put their protest in perspective. We should all be aware that there are pathologically inflamed political passions in our midst which exceed the boundaries of civil disagreement and constitute a threat to public safety. The future of the Tea Party movement is difficult to predict, but it appears that changes are in the works. According to the California Tea Party website, the emphasis is shifting away from rallies and “heading full sail into

view point
electoral activism” via an organization called the Patriot Caucus. They intend to promote their extremely conservative agenda within the two party system and third party impulses are discouraged, “at least in the short term.” In other words, the Tea Party is attempting to take over the Republican Party. The Tea Party’s influence is increasingly evident as candidates approach the Republican primary elections. Most Republican incumbents are under attack for any appearance of cooperation, with any Democrat, at any time. Any attempt at compromise in order to pass legislation is mercilessly slammed by electoral challengers. This is why Republicans in Congress now often vote against legislation which they have previously supported. The ideological purists challenging the Republican Party might succeed in some primary elections, but it won’t be so easy for them in the general elections in November. The purists in both parties often manage to convince themselves that millions of voters in the center of the political spectrum share their views, but moderates generally reject extreme candidates, as activists learned, or should have learned, from the very lopsided Presidential elections of 1964 and 1972. Another problem with ideological purity is that it is internally unsustainable. People who don’t understand the necessity of compromise in government and politics usually can’t even get along with each other for very long. The most compelling historical example of this dysfunctional condition is the “Reign of Terror” which was led by Robespierre in the wake of the French Revolution. All leaders who did not meet the strictest standards of ideological perfection were systematically eliminated, until no one was left. A detailed account of this political breakdown is provided in the book Fatal Purity by Ruth Scurr. The title alone offers a concise history lesson for rigid ideologues of any political stripe. Dave Nemer is a Claremont resident.

Jesse Bettinger of the Claremont Colleges Menʼs Rugby Football Club crosses the field for a water break after doing a running drill with his teammates on Tuesday in Claremont. The club is on a serious winning streak after defeating University of Vermont 36-10 to advance to the Division II Collegiate Final Four in Stanford.

National title within grasp for men’s rugby team

J

ust 2 more victories and the Claremont Colleges Men’s Rugby Football Club will accomplish its dream as the number one team in the nation.
The Dragons hope to put a championship end to a memorable season next weekend at Stanford University starting with a USA Rugby Division II Collegiate National Championships semifinal round match against Miami University of Ohio next Friday. “I think we’re having a fantastic year, but it’s also really not over,” said Dragons head coach Jeremy Ognall. “We’ve got a week until the finals and we want to be focused and stay on task. This is our first time that we’ve been this far since 2005 and what we’ve accomplished in the last 2 months has been great.”

laremont (10-2-1) got off to a tough start in the 2010 season with a 10-0 loss to the University of Southern California the first week and then a 40-0 thrashing at the hands of Arizona State just 2 days later. Since those 2 losses, the Dragons have won 10 matches and also played to one tie (23-23) against UC Irvine on March 5th.
This season has featured a pair of milestones for the Claremont team. The Dragons defeated Loyola, 43-5, to win the Southern California Rugby Football Division II Collegiate championship on March 27th and then edged UC Santa Barbara in an overtime thriller 6 days later in a Division II vs Division I match, 38-36. The latter win qualified Claremont to compete in Division I next season. Yet before officially joining Division I, Dragons club president and lock Daniel Hoesterey wants to make the most of its championship run in Division II. “It’s been real exciting,” Hoesterey said. “We’ve had a lot of potential for a long time. This is the most success we’ve had in a long time and now we’re getting ready for the big stage that we’ve worked for all year.”

Unlike the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps and Pomona-Pitzer sports programs, the men’s rugby team is open to players from Claremont McKenna College, Harvey Mudd College, Pitzer College and Pomona College. The 36-member team may sometimes draw from other local schools such as Citrus College. “We just play the sport for the love of rugby and it’s also a chance to get know people,” said Dragons fullback Jeff Astor. “One of the things our team does is combine students from the different Claremont Colleges. The guy that I’m playing against during the football season is the guy I’m playing rugby with during the spring.” The Dragons squad is run like a club team with players such as Hoesterey and Astor also in charge of team operations. As a non-sanctioned team, the members must play dual roles as both players and team managers. “It’s the time commitment of another class,” Astor said. “Things like handling money and busing are run through Dan and I. We talk to coaches to hire them, set up the games, fill out the legal documents and many other things.” One of the biggest decisions for the club this year was the selection of Coach Ognall as the new head coach after longtime coach Wally Cox retired following 20 years at the helm. Under Cox, Claremont became a Division I team, but struggles in recent years bumped the Dragons back down to Division II. The head coach is joined by assistants Scott Bracken, Woody Fox, Lloyd Banard and trainer Jasper Chang. Coach Ognall hopes the success of this year’s team will help attract more players for next season. The coach is aiming for a bigger squad to tackle Division I opponents. “We have 36 players now but our goal is to be at 45 to 50 players in order to compete in Division I in case we have injuries,” Coach Ognall said. “I think our success has led to more interest in rugby.” —Landus Rigsby

Japanese paper cutting demonstration with Nori Kosuge

T

hey look like black and white photographs from a distance, but up close are revealed to be works of paper. This week Claremont will host an exhibition of these delicate works.

Japanese-American artist Nori Kosuge, who graduated from Chaffey College in 1993 with a degree in photography, has been working in the realm of papercutting for 16 years. Paper-cutting is a traditional Japanese art form, but Mr. Kosuge enjoys the medium’s blend of Western and Eastern art, photographic images made by hand that hint at vintage Hollywood scenes. Each work is rewarding, but time-consuming, a ritual of

sketching and delicate X-Acto knife cuts that requires several hours’ work for up to two weeks. Mr. Kosuge is a professional paper-cutting artist, creating both independent artwork and contract pieces. He currently teaches 90 students back in Japan, and has had 7 exhibitions around the world. This upcoming exhibition, however, is his first in the United States. An opening reception is scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday, April 25, from 2 to 5 p.m. in the Claremont Forum Gallery at 586 W. 1st Street, during which guests can meet the artist and preview his new work. He may even provide short lessons; according to him, the most important thing for students to keep in mind is to have fun despite the time consumption. Wine and sushi will be served.

In addition, Mr. Kosuge will conduct several art workshops next week. Students who have no prior experience with paper-cutting will be instructed in the use of the X-Acto knife and will complete two art projects. Classes are scheduled for Monday, April 26 from 10 a.m. to noon; Tuesday, April 27 from 10 a.m to noon; Wednesday, April 28 from 2 to 4 p.m.; and Thursday, April 29 from 2 to 4 p.m. Each class is limited to ten students and those enrolled are asked to bring a standard stapler for use in class. The workshops require a supply fee. Visit www.claremontforum.org for more information.

Church of Pomona. In the late 1940s, a group of Claremont Baptists, with the help of the Pomona church, purchased a two-story, Spanish-style house and orange grove on the corner of Harrison and Mountain avenues. The house became both the first pastor’s home and the meeting place for the church services. On April 30, 1950, the church was officially chartered by the Southern California Baptist Convention, with 68 members. The first sanctuary was dedicated in November of 1951 and is now Fellowship Hall for social events. The current church building was completed in May of 1963 and remodeled last year by enclosing the breezeway and updating rest rooms.
