Late night for Claremont City Council as traffic issues dominate meeting
Editor-in-Chief Kathryn Dunn
City Reporter Beth Hartnett
t was standing-room only in the Claremont City Council Chamber Tuesday night as council members tackled a series of ongoing city disputes. Parking issues at the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park were among the night’s heavy hitters.
After nearly 2 hours of public comment, the Claremont City Council unanimously agreed to add further parking restrictions to streets near the bustling wilderness area. In addition to previously designated “no parking” zones at Mt. Baldy Avenue and Mills, permit-only parking will be enforced 24 hours a day on Pomello Drive, from Mills Avenue to the west end, as well as on Dillard Avenue, St. Gregory Street, Pennsylvania Place, Brigham Young Drive, Independence Drive, Elmira Avenue, Vincennes Court, Alamosa Drive, from Mills to Bonnie Brae, and Mills Avenue, from Pomello to Alamosa. After public comment and an initial vote, the council added

Pomello Avenue, from Mills to Grand, and Alamosa, from Mills to Grand, to the list of restricted parking areas—under the condition that a petition with a majority of residents’ signatures be submitted to the city. The council revoked its previous decision to defer the 2 additional street segments to another commission review. It’s a temporary fix. Permit parking zones will sunset in 2 years, during which time the city will be working to create a wilderness park master plan to holistically deal with parking and overcrowding issues. In the meantime, the council hopes restrictions will bring some level of respite for concerned wilderness area homeowners. “The master plan will probably take about a year to develop. I’m not going to sit here for a year and not do anything about this,” said Councilmember Larry Schroeder. “We’ve got to do something.” Nearly 30 residents weighed in, a few wary of the restrictions, but a majority siding with Mr. Schroeder’s call for immediate action as the master plan is developed. “I’ve never seen it this bad,” said David Choi, who said he

Future of pines hangs in limbo; islands stay on solid ground
he Club neighborhood’s canopy of pines may thin out over the next few months, but the hardscape isn't going anywhere.
As 44 of the neighborhood pine trees await review by a city-contracted arborist, to be removed if deemed necessary, the Claremont City Council Tuesday agreed to repair and maintain the neighborhood islands on Davenport, Elmhurst and Stanislaus Circle. In addition to designating nearly $18,000 for new irrigation systems at each of the islands, the council has agreed to work with the Club Home Owner Association to come up with a maintenance agreement all can get behind. “We need to figure out how to be a partner with the HOA, with the residents in working together for this

common good,” said Councilmember Sam Pedroza. This summer, the city will move forward with a 6figure slurry project to more extensively repair the suburb’s damaged hardscape, a recurring problem exacerbated by tree roots. The Club HOA has indicated that as a part of the maintenance project, they would like the islands removed because of recurring maintenance costs. However, City Attorney Sonia Carvalho determined the city maintained ownership of those islands, and therefore had final say. Despite the board’s argument that they were appointed to speak on behalf of the 309 residents of The Club, the city turned to the homeowners. A majority of residents surveyed on Davenport, Elmhurst and Stanislaus asked for the islands to remain, according to Kathleen Trepa, director of community and human services. The council granted that wish. In exchange for keeping the islands, the city will reim-
burse the HOA for costs incurred from island maintenance moving forward. Club residents present at Tuesday’s meeting were generally supportive of the decision, a couple even deeming the city’s reimbursement for maintenance costs unnecessary. “I don’t think anyone should be paying for water other than HOA homeowners,” said Club resident Maurice Flora. Regardless of who pays the bill, Club residents were happy for the help. “My first interest is in the trees in our community, the maintenance of our community, and I think the city manager along with the Community and Human Services Department has done a good job of crafting a compromise solution,” said Michael Heilpern.

has lived near the wilderness park for the last 24 years. “The character of the neighborhood is really changing...this is a temporary plan to evaluate the immediate problem we have right now.” Since the opening of the park’s expanded north parking lot, and enforcement of the lot’s now metered parking, many locals have vocalized concern that eager wilderness park hikers are finding loopholes to avoid paying. In recent months, several residents living near the park, particularly those on Pomello and Mills, have share with the council that their streets have become alternative parking destinations. On the weekends, Mills Avenue homeowner Margaret Jeffreys says she needs a passenger to help her pull out of her driveway because cars are parked bumper-to-bumper across her street. “It is terrifying,” she shared. “It’s just a miracle there hasn’t been an accident on Mills.” The council hopes to mitigate the problem before it gets worse. “It’s not just about the wilderness park,” said Councilmember Corey Calaycay. “It’s about respecting our neighborhoods.” Traffic measures approved

n another attempt to preserve neighborhood well-being, the council unanimously approved $165,000 in a series of traffic-calming measures to address speed concerns on 10 local streets. Measures will include adding striped parking, bicycle lanes and driver feedback signs to streets that include American, College, Mountain, Mt. Baldy, Pomello, Radcliffe, San Jose, Scripps and Scottsbluff. In an unexpected move last fall, council members heeded residential concern and opted to evaluate traffic-calming measures before raising speed limits, even if it meant speeds on those streets would be temporarily unenforceable. A speed survey conducted in 2012 suggested that speeds needed to be raised in order to be in compliance with state mandates. California law requires that a city’s speed limits reflect the local traffic speed limits, and the survey showed a majority of the drivers traveling along those 10 street segments were above the speed limit enough that the speed needed to be increased by 5 mph to comply with state code.
In the past, city officials were allowed to set a speed limit within 5 miles per hour of the speed a majority of cars were traveling at. If most cars were traveling at 28 miles an hour in a 25 mph zone, the city could opt to stay at 25 mph instead of raising the speed to 30. However, recent changes have been made to more stringently restrict the freedom cities have to set the speed limit. Now, the speed must be set to the nearest 5 mph. If a majority of cars are going 28 mph in a 25 mph zone, officials are mandated to raise the speed limit to 30 mph by state law. School zones and other restrictions continue to apply and are not affected by these new rules. While the city will hold off on raising the speed limits on a majority of those designated streets, council members did approve raising the speed limit on Mt. Baldy Road, from Padua Avenue to the east city limit, to 50 mph in order to be properly enforced. In terms of the other streets, the council hopes those driving in the city will take their cue and slow down before speed limits go up. “The full responsibility still lies with us, the drivers,” Mayor Opanyi Nasiali noted. Another speed survey will be conducted in 4 months, at which time speed limits on those streets will be reconsidered. City staff is working to reclassify Scripps, Radcliffe and Scottsbluff as local roads in hopes of having the ability to keep speeds on those streets at 25 mph.

Pomona nears top of Forbes’ best US college list
orbes has ranked Pomona College in second place overall in its annual list of America’s Top 100 Colleges, up from 9th place last year. Forbes has deemed Pomona, the oldest school among The Claremont Colleges, to be the second best school in the west and the second best among private colleges in the United States.
Forbes’ rankings of 650 colleges and universities are based on return-on-investment, criteria such as tuition costs, the likelihood of graduating in 4 years, postgraduation employment potential and the average amount of student debt. With Stanford University ranking number-one, 2013 marks the first time that Forbes has selected 2 non-Ivy League colleges to top its list. In an interview with KNX 1070 news radio, Pomona College president David Oxtoby expressed that administrators and staffers are surprised but delighted at Pomona’s placement. He attributes the rising star of the college, which has a little more than 1,500 undergraduate students, to its unique academic environment. “Being small, we have very close relationships between faculty and students,” Mr. Oxtoby said. “We have students involved in research from day-one, we have small discussion-based classes, we have out-ofclassroom opportunities.” To see the full Forbes “America’s Top Colleges” list, visit www.forbes.com/top-colleges/list.

Super King key to rejuvenated shopping center
rom bereft to bustling, the Claremont Promenade at Auto Center Drive is a far cry from the floundering center it was considered just a few years ago. The only complaint now comes with trying to find a parking space.
A hub of economic success in the city of Claremont—driving in an estimated $16 million in sales tax since it opened in 1986—Auto Center Drive has become much more than the cluster of auto dealerships from whence it drew its name. City officials look to mimic the success of the revitalized shopping center as they now focus on filling the Peppertree Square shopping center down the street. While Norms proved an important addition to Promenade, and certainly gave the center a couple extra double-takes with its 50-foot glowing orange sign, the opening of the Super King grocery store in late 2011 proved to be particularly fortuitous. In the past 18 months, more than 11 businesses have come to call the Auto Center mini-mall home, from dentist offices to dining destinations. “Business begets business,” said Claremont Mayor Opanyi Nasiali. “For Auto Center Drive, Super King really became the catalyst that influenced the kind of activity we are seeing at that center today. That’s what we need for the Peppertree center, an anchor that is going to become a magnet.” Abdallah Soueidan, owner of Al Amir Flatbrea (which opened in April) admits it was because of the Super King he sought a spot for his restaurant within the center. For George Ghaby of Rounds Burgers, it was all about the locale. “It’s a great location, right off the freeway,” Mr. Ghaby said. Locals take equal pleasure in the prime location of some of their favorite Claremont haunts, including the aforementioned burger joint, Fattoush Mediterranean Cuisine, Waba Grill and Super King. One customer was so moved by Claremont’s international grocer, he wrote a song in its honor and posted it online. But the center’s prime position along the 10 freeway hasn’t always spelled success. Trouble brewed for the south Claremont complex when the previous owner filed for bankruptcy, according to Brian Desatnik, director of community development. Plans to
renovate the Promenade went sour as tenants, unable to weather the construction, began pulling out of the center or closing up shop altogether. While business has come and gone over the years, the thriving center took a sharp downturn with the pullout of Builders Emporium and later the Albertsons grocery store in 2007, leaving the center without an anchor and without the driving force to keep business booming, Mr. Desatnik recognized.

Tuesday, July 16 Forty-year-old Ana Romero of Los Angeles gave a whole new meaning to getting high. Ms. Romero was spotted climbing in a tree at Larkin Park on Tuesday night, but it wasn’t her choice of evening exercise that got police attention. Her car, found parked on the grass with the engine still running, first drew officers’ attention, according to Lieutenant Mike Ciszek. She was also found to be under the influence of methamphetamine. Her trip to jail by contrast, was a downer. Wednesday, July 19 One man’s junk is another man’s treasure. Costume jewelry, a Rolex and personal identification documents were found nestled in a pillowcase that had been dumped into a residential trashcan in the 100 block of East Base Line Road. It is unknown where the bundle came from. Police have obtained the property and are working to locate the owners. Friday, July 19 A little sugar wasn’t so sweet for a resident in the 100 block of Eighth Street, who awoke Friday morning to an unsavory surprise. Breakfast had apparently been served on the resident’s car and house, smashed eggs causing damage to the paint. Eggs weren’t the only part of the vandalism. Sugar had been poured into the car’s gas tank. A report was taken, but there are no known suspects. Saturday, July 20 A less-than-friendly game of tag ended in arrest on Saturday morning. At first Andre Bradshaw, 31, of Compton and Erma Holmes, 26, of Riverside told police they had been fighting. The next
moment, they were running after each other down Bonita. Police caught up with them shortly after. Both were wanted for outstanding warrants (Ms. Holmes for loitering with the intent to prostitute, Mr. Bradshaw for driving with a suspended license) and arrested. Monday, July 22 A Claremont resident on probation has found himself once again behind bars. Police caught up with 25-year-old Michael Woll at his Claremont residence on Monday to conduct a search of his property. Mr. Woll was not only found to be in possession of narcotic paraphernalia, but also an estimated 28 grams of methamphetamine, according to police. He was arrested for the drug violation as well as for being a convicted felon in possession of ammunition. ****
A routine Monday workday for police department employees took an unexpected turn when a resident walked in to the department lobby screaming about the Mexican cartel. They were transferred from the police department to a local hospital. Tuesday, July 23 A late night swim was not in the cards for 32-year-old Cheyne Cook of Hesperia, seen trying to enjoy some pool time in a complex off Reed and Regis on Tuesday. There were 2 things working against him. The fact he was wanted for an outstanding San Bernardino County warrant and the fact he was caught breaking into the pool complex area he didn’t live in. The only relaxation he was granted was some down-time in jail.

Backpacks, brews benefit Shoes That Fit campaign in Claremont
There is still time to be a part of Shoes That Fit’s annual Back to School campaign.
Just pick up an empty backpack—tagged with the name, gender, shoe size and grade of a child—from participating Village businesses. As a Back to School Buddy, you can fill the pack with a pair of brand-new athletic shoes, socks and school supplies, items that can make a life-changing difference for a child in need. Backpacks are still available at the following Claremont businesses, and should be returned by Sunday, July 28: The Green Gypsie, Heirloom, Some Crust Bakery, Stamp Your Heart Out, The Last Drop Café, Nectar, The Bath Workshop and Dr. Grubbs. This year, Some Crust owner Larry Feemster is celebrating 20 years of having a Shoes That Fit board in his business allowing customers to help support low-income kids from their head to their toes. Because his board is the first of its kind in Claremont, Roni Lomeli, director of the nonprofit, has deemed it “the motherboard.” For Mr. Feemster, lending a hand to the nonprofit is a no-brainer. “I grew up in an environment that in today’s terms you would say was very disadvantaged,” he said. “I know what it’s like to be without, so Shoes That Fit has always been very near and dear to my heart.

Clash of the cultures
by Mellissa Martinez
ecent events have me pondering a very popular word—culture. If you turn on the news, open a paper or listen to the radio, you’re sure to get an earful about gun culture, youth culture, marriage culture, the culture of violence, cultural exchanges, cultural diversity, military culture, wars on culture or multiculturalism. I have started to wonder, is culture a habit, tradition, group, high standard or is it all of this and more?
Surprisingly, this multi-meaning word comes from one place—the earth. In the mid 1400s, ‘culture’ came into English from French, meaning ‘the tilling of the land,’ which had come in turn from the Latin cultura, ‘cultivation or agriculture.’ Today, not only ‘agriculture,’ but also ‘horticulture,’ ‘viniculture’ and ‘cultivate’ maintain their earthy connection. When ‘culture’ first came into English, it was literally for half a century. A figurative meaning didn’t emerge in our language until the 1500s when ‘cultivation through education’ came about. At this point, ‘culture’ started to be used to refer to the intellectual side of civilization—those who tilled their minds, so to speak. The Romans, however, did have a figurative meaning of the word early on, which came to English as ‘cult.’ The Latin cultura, from the past participle of colere, basically had 2 meanings, ‘to tend, guard or till’ and, because of the hard work and dedication that went into tilling the land, it was also used for ‘care or honor.’ When this metaphorical form came into French, it was shortened to culte. Eventually, the word grew to include ‘worship and reverence.’ By
Most people associate ‘culture’ with ‘heritage,’ placing it after race, nationality or religion to express shared values of the group, as in American culture, Latino culture or Jewish culture. This use, however, is just the tip of the iceberg. Many times ‘culture’ is combined with other nouns or verbs, representing age, sports, activities or affiliations. Consider the common expressions teen culture, skating culture, gay culture, male culture or car culture. There are also terms like cultural gap, cultural diversity, culture shock, counter culture and subculture, and let’s not forget the more contemporary pop-culture, food culture and movie culture. A person or a pearl can be cultured, an event or experience can be cultural and one can find culture in cities, museums, music, yogurt and petri dishes. The word is so versatile that it can be paired with just about anything without causing much of an eyebrow raise; culture refers to breeding, tradition, knowledge, background, philosophy, good manners, education, elegance or sophistication.
the time it appeared in English, it had lost all association with working the land and maintained its ‘worship’ connotation. Although ‘cult,’ ‘a religious sect’ and ‘culture’ seem worlds apart, they are actually from the same word. Another surprising relative of ‘culture’ is ‘colony,’ which was the name given to an ancient Roman settlement outside of Italy. It came from the Latin colonia, ‘settled land, farm or estate,’ which is also from colere. This parent word is believed to have derived from the Proto Indo European *kwel- ‘to move around.’ Kwel led to the Greek kyklos, ‘circle, wheel or cycle of events,’ and eventually the Latin Cyclus, which gave English the words ‘cycle’ and ‘wheel,’ further kin of ‘culture.’ In the 1700s, the adjective ‘cultivated’ generally meant ‘developed under controlled natural conditions.’ This led to the biological use of ‘culture’ and to ‘cultured pearls’ later on. Around the mid 1700s, philosophers referred to an enlightened mind as ‘cultured’ and by the end of the century the notion of intellectual culture was commonplace. Perhaps the most common modern meaning of the word, ‘the collective customs of people,’ came about later in the mid 1800s. Mahatma Gandhi said, “a nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.” If we are willing to dig a bit deeper, it is clear that culture may be found not only in our hearts, souls, but also in our religion, water, minds, customs, farms and certainly in the land we live on.

The other side of the Supreme Court
Dear Editor: This may be a first. Mark Merritt calls my writing style “discursive.” Recollect, though, I did say that many points had been touched upon in Mr. Nasiali’s original piece, so it was almost unavoidable. To attempt to address every misconstruance and misdirection reflected in the July 19 COURIER letters would be impossible. Suffice it to say that every advocate of same-sex marriage has his/her preferred reasons, focusing almost invariably on the micro-view of society; i.e., personal experiences. To avoid being discursive this time, though, let’s recall that the people of California have voted not once, but twice, to retain traditional male-female marriage as the standard. Yet, same-sex marriage has been imposed upon us anyway by a handful—literally a handful—of judicial autocrats, one in California and 5 in DC. This may be the greatest example of voter suppression, so far. And, regardless of one’s position on same-sex marriage, the way our legal system was finagled and manipulated to derive the recent outcome should scare the wits out of every decent person concerned about a genuine rule of law. The Supreme Court should have declared this issue outside the purview of the federal courts, and vacated the Ninth Circuit’s ruling as well as Vaughn Walker’s federal district court
ruling. Instead, the majority concocted a simple-minded legal technicality in order to achieve their desired policy goal. In their opinion, the majority wrote: “Petitioners [proponents of Prop. 8] did not have standing to appeal the District Court’s [Vaughn Walker’s] order.” And that, basically, was the end of the issue with them. More enlightening for us, however, would be to consider what the dissenting justices had to say about the majority’s opinion. Joining in the dissent were Justices Kennedy, Thomas, Alito and even Obama-appointed Sotomayor. Here are just a few excerpts from the ruling to illustrate their thinking: “The Court’s reasoning does not take into account the fundamental principles or the practical dynamics of the initiative system in California, which uses this mechanism to control and to bypass public officials—the same officials who would not defend the initiative, an injury the Court now leaves unremedied.” “It is for California, not this Court, to determine whether and to what extent the Elections Code provisions are instructive and relevant in determining the authority of proponents to assert the State’s interest in post-enactment judicial proceedings.” “. . .the Court’s opinion today means that a single district court can make a decision with far-reaching effects that cannot be reviewed.” “The Court’s opinion disrespects and disparages both the political process in California and the well-stated opinion of the California Supreme Court in this case. The California Supreme Court, not this Court, expresses concern for vigorous representation; the California Supreme Court, not this Court, recognizes the necessity to avoid conflicts of interest; the California Supreme Court, not this Court, comprehends the real interest at stake in this litigation and identifies the most proper party to defend that interest. The California Supreme Court’s opinion reflects a better understanding of the dynamics and principles of Article III than does this Court’s opinion.” “. . .what the Court fails to grasp or accept is the basic premise of the ini-
tiative process. And it is this. The essence of democracy is that the right to make law rests in the people and flows to the government, not the other way around. Freedom resides first in the people without need of a grant from government.” “The Court’s opinion fails to abide by precedent and misapplies basic principles of justiciability.”

Home, sweet Swedish, home
by Jan Wheatcroft
any think that a “man’s” home is his castle, but I have just spent a week with a couple that strive to make their home a castle. Susanna and Christer live in a country house outside of the Swedish city of Uppsala, north of Stockholm.
At first they lived in a communal situation as part of an educational institution south of Stockholm, and then moved together to Stockholm, which is more crowded as well as more expensive. Finally they found their bit of paradise further north in the countryside and have been busily working to improve the house and land for the past 7 years. The house is a big red traditional Swedish home with a lovely large kitchen where much of the daily living takes place. My guest bedroom is next door, across from Christer's office. There is a huge shower room with a “pool” in the center and Susanna, a painter, has created a 3-walled mural of sea and country life in shades of blues and greens. Very soothing. On the other side of the walls is a series of storage and work rooms. Upstairs, with lovely views, is the living room, Susanna's painting studio and the large bedroom/sitting area equipped with a built in child's bed. We called it a Dutch Bed when I was a child. It is hard to crawl into and make up, but one can imagine a few small children sleeping in the room all tucked up in this cozy bed. The views from upstairs are of the garden in the back and the fields of grazing cows in the front. Although they are on a road, it is a country road and there is not a great deal of traffic, aside from a few cars, a mail van, bike riders, tractors and horse riders moving to and from their farms. The area is surrounded by small farms of cows, fields of yellow rapeseed, woods and forests where they go to gather up wild mushrooms in the fall, or collect the best and purest water from springs hidden from popular view. To buy eggs from neighbors, visit someone close or even to collect the spring water they will bike on a daily basis. The pride of their “castle-home” is the garden. In the front is a small cottage, which can be a guest house or a rental if necessary as it is complete with kitchen and bath, living and sleeping space. This would mean someone living quite close by and they are not really ready for that at the present time. However, the garden is where they are putting all of their effort and have done so for the past 7 years. Each time I come to visit I notice great changes besides the house painting. New stones are laid and paths created. Huge areas are opened with trees cut out and weeds dug up and cleared away. There are garden plots planted with edibles, rhubarb being one of the favorites. In the first years we always had at least one pie but now Christer has begun to make a rhubarb lemonade, which is delicious and refreshing as well. They have planted fruit trees: cherry, apple, plum and pear; trees which can weather the cold Swedish winters. The cherry tree has died, sadly. Apparently the plum tree was full of fat, juicy, ripe plums last year and every one of them was eaten by fat, plump wasps. Susanna and Christer walk through their garden many times a day when not working in it to examine everything minutely with great enjoyment and pleasure. They have many different types of roses, poppies and lovely flowers that would wither in our hot climate but are a joy for me to discover. They have their porch filled with batches of seedlings that are being
prepared for introduction to the garden. There are also a number of outbuildings that Christer has been busily clearing up and repurposing from storage into a workroom for himself and a covered outside studio for Susanna. As he works he discovers old parts of furniture that were left behind. I call him “The Archaeologist” as he tries to discover what they actually are, then reconditions them and figures out how they fit together. He often rushes out in the morning and can be gone for hours puttering about in a creative and satisfying manner, lost to the world. He has also designed and built a pond where the water circulates and flows from a top covered in plants into the pond itself. It is a satisfying sound and a cool place to sit on a blue reconditioned bench during the Swedish summer. In the middle of the garden is a large, white table with bench and chairs where meals are taken and drinks are sipped and where mosquitoes come to enjoy their share of us. Every inch of their land is either used or planned for future use and every bit is examined daily. They walk together sharing their views and their dreams, enjoying the good weather when it comes and gearing up with boots and rain ware when necessary, even in the summertime. They are always accompanied by their cat, Moses, a sweet young man who patrols the property, as do they, keeping a close watch over the life of the area. Birds nest yearly in the bird houses lodged in trees, kept up by both of them and happily lived in by families each year. Most people who have gardens enjoy them and have fun puttering about digging and planting, but with Susanna and Christer it is a passion that blooms in the warmer summer months because of hard work expended both daily and yearly. I have seen many changes over the years and always find it an adventure to discover new ones but the joy remains as they work together to actually make their home into their castle.

In 2012, Colors crafters donated more than 150 handcrafted items. To kick start the event, Colors will host a special pajama party on Friday, August 2. Refreshments will be provided to sustain guests, who are invited to knit and crochet from 6 to midnight. To help with the expense of participation, Colors will give a 10 percent discount to those who choose to buy items from the store for use in the charity drive. In addition, for every hour of knitting/crocheting at the store, participants will be entered into a grand prize drawing. Not a knitter? No problem. Donations and letters for those overseas are welcome. Beanie Babies, Webkinz and Troll collection toys are also sought. For more information on Charity Knit Nights or donating to the cause, contact owner Diana Miller at email@example.com.

Beloved teacher, husband and father
William “Bill” Charles Rasmussen, a longtime Claremont resident, died unexpectedly on Monday, July 22, 2013 at Kaiser Hospital in Fontana after emergency surgery, with his entire family by his side. He was 63. Mr. Rasmussen was born in Ames, Iowa in 1949 to William Sr. and Alba Rasmussen. His sister, Linda, was born 4 years later. The family moved to southern California when he was 6. Mr. Rasmussen was always a good student and an accomplished athlete. He was also a devoted big brother, interviewing and evaluating many of his sister’s prospective suitors. After graduating from Claremont High School in 1967, Mr. Rasmussen attended the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he met his future wife, Diana “Dinny” Weaver, at freshmen orientation. He was a member of Phi Delta Theta and was active in school politics. Mr. Rasmussen and Dinny were married in September of 1970, at the start of their senior year. This September would have marked their 43rd anniversary. After graduating from UCSB with degrees in history, the Rasmussens attended graduate school at San Jose State. Once they completed their master’s degrees, they returned to Claremont. Ms. Rasmussen taught at Claremont High School and Mr. Rasmussen enrolled in a PhD program at the Claremont Graduate School, where he focused on 20th century American history. In 1974, Mr. Rasmussen earned a teaching credential at the University of duty and returned to the States in 1978. Mr. Rasmussen was hired as a teacher at the Calverton School in southern Maryland, where he taught subjects ranging from psychology to business law, served as college advisor and coached basketball, baseball and soccer. For most of his tenure at the Calverton School, he was also the assistant headmaster. During their time in Maryland, the Rasmussens welcomed 2 sons, Tony and Dan. In 1988, homesick for California, the family returned to Claremont so that they could be close to Mr. Rasmussen’s parents and to his sister Linda’s family, including her husband, Dan Ridd, and daughters, Cameron and Maurgan. In 1991, Mr. and Ms. Rasmussen were blessed with a third son, David. In Claremont, Mr. Rasmussen taught at Sycamore Elementary for 2 years and then at his alma mater, Claremont High School. At CHS, he taught English literature and Advanced Placement US history and was head of the history department. Mr. Rasmussen helped organize and was the teacher advisor for the Black Student Union, the Asian Pacific Student Organization and the speech and debate team, to name a few. Mr. Rasmussen involved himself enthusiastically in the lives of his students, providing guidance and help to any student in need. For Mr. Rasmussen, teaching was more than a job. It was a calling that continued even when he was out of the classroom, teaching catechism and coaching Little League for all 3 of his sons. With his teaching partner Lowell Rice and middle son Daniel, Mr. Rasmussen regularly provided color commentary for the local cable broadcasts of school sporting events. From 2005 until July 22, Mr. Rasmussen taught at Fontana High School. He was deep into preparation for the upcoming fall term, bringing a stack of research material with him to the hospital on Monday. “Bill honored his students with his earnestness, consistency and openness, and he cherished each and every one of them,” his family shared. “He let them know that he believed in them and thought them imaginative, capable and unique, and he struggled every day to let them know that they were each pearls without price. His students returned this love in kind, immortalizing their ‘Mr. Raz’ in affectionate cartoons, ceramics and song. It was a mushy ol’ love affair. Bill made us all more than we are.” Mr. Rasmussen is survived by his wife Dinny and his 3 sons, Tony, Dan and David; by his daughters-in-law, Deborah and Nicole; by his sister, Linda; and by “a host of wonderful souls.” Services for Mr. Rasmussen will be held on Monday, July 29 at 10 a.m. at Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church, followed by interment at Oak Park Cemetery. Donations may be made to the William Charles Rasmussen Scholarship Fund; proceeds will go to Fontana High School graduating seniors. For details, please email the Rasmussen family at firstname.lastname@example.org.
La Verne, and then he and his wife joined the Peace Corps. Both worked as teachers of English in the Central African Republic. They began their work at a rural lycee in Bouar before moving to the capital city of Bangui in 1975, where Mr. Rasmussen taught English literature at l’Université de Bokassa. Bright-eyed and eager for adventure, they braved giant ant attacks, dive-bombing bats and many a bowl of “mystery meat.” Mr. Rasmussen narrowly survived an intestinal infection and a harrowing jeep ride to the capital, 400 kilometers away. They completed their tour of
Margaret Carothers, a longtime Claremont resident, died on July 17, 2013 following a brief illness. She was 65. A memorial service will be held on August 3 at 9 a.m. at Oak Park Cemetery, 410 S. Sycamore Ave. A full obituary on Ms. Carothers will be included in a future edition of the COURIER.
A memorial service for former longtime Claremont resident Jeanne Schlick will be held Tuesday, July 30 at 1:30 p.m. at Todd Memorial Chapel, 570 N. Garey Ave. in Pomona. Ms. Schlick died on July 3, 2013 in Indian Wells, California after a brief illness. She was 79. A reception will follow services at the DoubleTree, 555 W. Foothill Blvd. in Claremont. Ms. Schlick is survived by her sons and their spouses, William and Carol Schlick, Howard and Cindy Schlick, and Paul and Lisa Schlick, all of Claremont, and by 7 grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her daughter Debbie and husband Kenneth, longtime owner of S&J Towing in Pomona. Interment will be private.

“You’ve got different talent levels,” Mr. Melanson said. “One thing I emphasize is that we need to work together and help students who need help. It teaches the more advanced students leadership skills.” A SLICE of summer As any parent knows, summer days can seem like an eternity. Many families fight boredom and summer “brain drain” by enrolling their kids in as many of the 3 SLICE sessions as possible. During each 2-week session, kids can get in up to 3 or 4 classes per day. Aimed at students in the first through twelfth grades, the program offers myriad classes cultivating curiosity, talent and confidence. There are music and sports and even driver’s education. There are foreign languages, artistic pursuits such as stop motion animation and clay sculpture and academic courses like Geometry Boot Camp. There are also fun applied science classes like Exploring Electricity and Ultimate Fort Building. Some families may have difficulty paying for SLICE classes. Most cost from $95 to $150, but they can easily run into the hundreds, especially high school classes. Luckily, the Claremont Educational Foundation is able to offer scholarships, a number that continues to grow with the help of a brand-new SLICE

sponsor, Metro Honda, a Honda/Acura dealer serving communities throughout the east San Gabriel Valley. With the pool up to $45,000, up to 150 new scholarships have been offered. Between word of mouth about the fun and rigor of the classes and increased financial aid, participation in the program has grown 25 percent this year alone. This summer, SLICE will have hosted 942 students, taking a total of 1,666 classes. Another exciting development for or-
ganizers this year is participation by the Claremont Graduate University (CGU). Many classes have gone from a one to 10 teacher-student ratio, to a one to 3 ratio, with a master teacher from CUSD supported by 2 CGU student teachers. With all of these attributes, Jeremy Troesh—a CHS counselor who serves as co-director of SLICE along with CUSD teacher on special assignment Brian D’Ambrosia-Donner—can be excused for raving about the program

Si no presenta su Respuesta a tiempo, la corte puede dar órdenes que afecten su matrimonio o pareja de hecho, sus bienes y la custodia de sus hijos. La corte también le puede ordenar que pague manutención, y honorarios y costos
legales. Si no puede pagar la cuota de presentación, pida al secretario un formulario de exención de cuotas. Si desea obtener asesoramiento legal, póngase en contacto de inmediato con un abogado. Puede obtener información para encontrar a un abogado en el Centro de Ayuda de las Cortes de California (www.sucorte.ca.gov), en el sitio Web de los Servicios Legales de California (www.lawhelpcalifornia.org) o poniéndose en contacto con el colegio de abogados de su condado. NOTICE: The restraining orders on page 2 are effective against both spouses or domestic partners until the petition is dismissed, a judgment is entered, or the court makes further orders. These orders are enforceable anywhere in California by any law enforcement officer who has received or seen a copy of them. AVISO: Las órdenes de restricción que figuran en la página 2 valen para ambos cónyuges o pareja de hecho hasta que se despida la petición, se emita un fallo o la corte dé otras órdenes. Cualquier autoridad de la ley que haya recibido o visto una copia de estas órdenes puede hacerlas acatar en cualquier lugar de California.

(AVISO A LA PERSONA QUE RECIBIO´ LA ENTREGA: Esta entrego se realiza a usted como individuo). WARNING—IMPORTANT INFORMATION WARNING: California law provides that, for purposes of division of property upon dissolution of a marriage or domestic partnership or upon legal separation, property acquired by the parties during marriage or domestic partnership in joint form is presumed to be community property. If either party to this action should die before the jointly held community property is divided, the language in the deed that characterizes how title is held (i.e., joint tenancy, tenants in common, or community property) will be controlling, and not the community property presumption. You should consult your attorney if you want the community property presumption to be written into the recorded title to the property. STANDARD FAMILY LAW RESTRAINING ORDERS Starting immediately, you and your spouse or domestic partner are restrained from 1. Removing the minor child or children of the parties, if any, from the state without the prior written consent of the other party or an order of the court; 2. Cashing, borrowing against, canceling, transferring, disposing of, or changing the beneficiaries of any insurance or other coverage, including life, health, automobile, and disability, held for the benefit of the parties and their minor child or children; 3. Transferring, encumbering, hypothecating, concealing, or in any way disposing of any property, real or personal, whether community, quasi-community, or separate, without the written consent of the other party or an order of the court, except in the usual course of business or for the necessities of life; and 4. Creating a nonprobate transfer or modifying a nonprobate transfer in a manner that affects the disposition of property subject to the transfer, without the written consent of the other party or an order of the court. Before revocation of a nonprobate transfer can take effect or a right of survivorship to property can be eliminated, notice of the change must be filed and served on the other party. You must notify each other of any proposed extraordinary expenditures at least five business days prior to incurring these extraordinary expenditures and account to the court for all extraordinary expenditures made after these restraining orders are effective. However, you may use community property, quasi-community property, or your own separate property to pay an attorney to help you or to pay court costs. ADVERTENCIA – INFORMACIÓN IMPORTANTE ADVERTENCIA: De acuerdo a la ley de California, las propiedades adquiridas por las partes durante su matrimonio o pareja de hecho en forma conjunta se consideran propiedad comunitaria para los fines de la división de bienes que ocurre cuando se produce una disolución o separación legal del matrimonio o pareja de hecho. Si cualquiera de las partes de este caso llega a fallecer antes de que se divida la propiedad comunitaria de tenencia conjunta, el destino de la misma quedará determinado por las cláusulas de la escritura correspondiente que describen su tenencia (por ej., tenencia conjunta, tenencia en común o propiedad comunitaria) y no por la presunción de propiedad comunitaria. Si quiere que la presunción comunitaria quede registrada en la escritura de la propiedad, debería consultar con un abogado. ÓRDENES DE RESTRICCIÓN NORMALES DE DERECHO FAMILIAR En forma inmediata, usted y su cónyuge o pareja de hecho tienen prohibido: 1. Llevarse del estado de California a los hijos menores de las partes, si los hubiera, sin el consentimiento previo por escrito de la otra parte o una orden de la corte; 2. Cobrar, pedir prestado, cancelar, transferir, deshacerse o cambiar el nombre de los beneficiarios de cualquier seguro u otro tipo de cobertura, tal como de vida, salud, vehículo y discapacidad, que tenga como beneficiario(s) a las partes y su(s) hijo(s) menor(es); 3. Transferir, gravar, hipotecar, ocultar o deshacerse de cualquier manera de cualquier propiedad, inmueble o personal, ya sea comunitaria, cuasicomunitaria o separada, sin el consentimiento escrito de la otra parte o una orden de la corte, con excepción las operaciones realizadas en el curso normal de actividades o para satisfacer las necesidades de la vida; y 4. Crear o modificar una transferencia no testamentaria de manera que afecte el destino de una propiedad sujeta a transferencia, sin el consentimiento por escrito de la otra parte o una orden de la corte. Antes de que se pueda eliminar la revocación de una transferencia no testamentaria, se debe presentar ante la corte un aviso del cambio y hacer una entrega legal de dicho aviso a la otra parte.Cada parte tiene que notificar a la otra sobre cualquier gasto extraordinario propuesto, por lo menos cinco días laborales antes de realizarlo, y rendir cuenta a la corte de todos los gastos extraordinarios realizados después de que estas órdenes de restricción hayan entrado en vigencia. No obstante, puede usar propiedad comunitaria, cuasicomunitaria o suya separada para pagar a un abogado o para ayudarle a pagar los costos de la corte.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder`s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714-573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case CBT-122261CA-2. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The property heretofore described is being sold "as is". The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 4298 NEW HAMPSHIRE AVENUE, CLAREMONT, CA The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein.

ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, this information can be obtained from one of the following three companies: LPS Agency Sales and Posting at (714) 730-2727, or visit the Internet Web site www.lpsasap.com (Registration required to search for sale information) or Priority Posting and Publishing at (714) 573-1965 or visit the Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com (Click on the link for "Advanced Search" to search for sale information), or auction.com at 1-800-280-2832 or visit the Internet Web site www.auction.com, using the Trustee Sale No. shown above.

Mason is a great real estate agent: knowledgable, patient, calm and persistent. He worked hard with us for over 5 months as we tried to find just the right home, and eventually we were successful. We looked at dozens of homes, made 5 offers and with Mason's help we have just moved into just the right home in the Claremont Village. Without his guidance we would never have held firm to find this house. If you want a real estate agent who is neither pushy nor too laid back, who will spend time finding out what you want and then work hard to find it and show it to you before someone else gets it, give Mason a call.
