Dear Editor: The Claremont Unified School District family lost a valued member on July 23. Bruce Plumb served the community of Claremont and CUSD for the past 37 years. Bruce represented his brothers and sisters at CUSD through his many hours of dedicated service with the California School Employees Association (CSEA). Bruce served with pride and passion. He always was the first to arrive daily at our Service Center and often was the first voice that someone heard on the phone when needing assistance. Bruce was never short of opinions and always tried to be a part of the solution as it related to many subjects. I am honored to have had the opportunity to have Bruce work for and with me. I am grateful for getting to know him and to listen to his ideas. He was a dedicated family man, served our country in the Navy and always was a voice for the voiceless. I am compelled to write this letter to the editor because Bruce Plumb cared about the students and families of CUSD. I will miss him.

Dear Editor: I, too, share Mr. Douglas Lyon’s frustrations with the initiative process, but for a different reason. Each court has its own procedures in deciding whether or not to hear a case.
Back Page Sammy
The United States Supreme Court decided that the parties who brought suit had no standing to do so. Standing is a complicated matter but, to try to simplify things, it means that the parties that brought the lawsuit forward had no skin in the game. The governor or attorney general of California should have or could have defended Proposition 8 but chose not to do so. They did not agree with the initiative that was passed by the people of California, and as the legal representatives of the state, they would have been recognized as having standing to sue to enforce Prop 8’s passage, but they did not agree with the initiative and chose to remain silent. I can understand why they disagreed with the decision of the people. The Supreme Court’s decision was unsatisfactory. They failed to make a decision on the merits of the case and the decision fell to the lower court’s ruling because the case failed to meet the criteria for the Supreme Court to hear it on its merits. By deciding the case the way they did, they rewarded the bad behavior of the Governor for not having defended what the people passed in the initiative process. But on the other hand, the initiative was flawed. Neither the state nor the people of the state have the power to do away with our rights that we have under the Constitution of the United States. We can not pass laws contrary to the areas that are the exclusive powers of the federal government, such as treaty-making or immigration, which go beyond the laws of our government. We also cannot vote away our rights by voting to do so. Let us say that the people
of the state of California vote to take away the rights of women in their ability to vote or vote to allow a business to deny blacks service or public accommodations. No initiative can do that. That is why we have the Supreme Court and lower courts to interpret what we do when we pass an initiative. The courts are the final arena of protection when the people exhibit signs of mob rule. We are no longer ruled by the Articles of Confederation where states had the power and sovereignty to decide these things. We are one nation, not 50 states with 50 different rule sets. We are governed by the rule of law under our federal Constitution. Gar Byrum

Timing is critical when home buying in a hot market
fter years of stagnant to slow growth, the Claremont real estate market is hot. But how long prices will continue to climb is another question.
Homebuyers who were hesitant a year ago are now motivated due to rising prices and mortgage interest rates, which are still historically low, though they have recently started to increase. This assessment was the consensus from a roomful of real estate professionals recently at Wheeler Steffen Sotheby’s International Realty, and shared by longtime Claremont realtor Carol Curtis of Curtis Real Estate. Claremont homes are selling quickly as inventory of available homes, 76 as of July 25, remains relatively low, thus driving competition. “There is a lot of pent-up demand,” said Ms. Curtis, “but there is also a lot of fear. There is talk of interest rates going up and everyone wants to buy at the bottom of the market before it heads back upwards.” Another factor driving demand is competition from investors who often COURIER photos/Steven Felschundneff offer cash deals. Instead of placing Realtors Geoff Hamill, left, Ryan Zimmerman, Bernadette Kendall and Mason Prophet tour a home in the University Terrace money in savings accounts with low redevelopment during a recent brokerʼs caravan of new Claremont real estate listings.

Realtors, only 44 percent of California residents can afford the median-priced home as of the first quarter of 2013. The affordability rate is down significantly from 56 percent a year earlier, and it is likely that the second quarter 2013 data will show a further slide.
nother concern expressed by Mr. Hamill is the recent approval of multiple townhouse-style developments in Claremont, 2 of which have already begun construction. Many potential Claremont homebuyers are older people who already live here but who want to downsize. These buyers are seeking small, single-story homes that will be easier to navigate as they grow older. Mr. Hamill would like to see 10 to 15 percent of new construction be small, single-story homes.
Ms. Curtis, on the other hand, remains optimistic. While much of Claremont is comprised of single-family homes, she maintains that condos in Claremont are in high demand. For instance, Ms. Curtis says she con-
stantly has people coming into her office asking about the Village Walk condos, located next to the Claremont Packing House. She insists that providing prospective buyers with more options is not a bad thing. “It’s a good move to have more [condos and townhomes] on the market,” Ms. Curtis said. “Hopefully, they all won’t hit the market at once, but I don’t think it’ll have a huge impact.” Still, local real estate professionals are feeling good about the current market even if they do have concerns about the sudden rise. Recalling the out-of-control market that peaked locally in the summer of 2007, only to come crashing down, Mr. Prophet commented, “What we need is a healthy market with slow growth and without a bubble.” As lenders become more careful, however, Ms. Curtis sets aside fear of another housing bubble. “Real estate is cyclical, there are always ups and downs,” she said. “We often forget that.”

Man arrested for check fraud after answering Craigslist ad
A bizarre scam left a 34-year-old Fontana man behind bars on Friday, as he was caught attempting to cash a check at California Bank and Trust, located at 102 Yale Ave. in Claremont If Demetrius LaFear’s story is to be believed, he cashed the check on behalf of someone he met through a Craigslist advertisement. The ad said it would give $2500 in cash in exchange for depositMonday, July 29 Police nabbed a 45-year-old Upland man on Monday, wanted for sneaking into a Claremont couple’s home while they slept last Wednesday night. Charles Eide—a registered sex offender, according to police—entered the home, located in the 2100 block of Mercer Court, through a back door and made off with a purse, wallet and other personal items. The back door had been left open and, while the screen door was shut, it had been left unlocked. Though Mr. Eide was initially able to get away undetected, he didn’t walk free for long. Through follow-up investigation, thanks to one of the stolen credit cards being used shortly after the burglary, police obtained a suspect and getaway vehicle description and arrested Mr. Eide on a return visit to Claremont on Monday. He was being held for $50,000 bail. **** It was a close call on Monday night for a resident in the 600 block of Converse Drive who left a car window partially opened overnight. A crook scouting out cars in the area spotted an opportunity and attempted to break into ing 2 checks at 2 separate banks, Mr. LaFear related to police.

The man took off without any property in tow, so quickly that police were unable to find him. No fingerprints were found, but a report was filed. Tuesday, July 30 A conflict between 2 roommates on Tuesday could have been avoided, as police discovered after arriving at the scene of the fight on Tuesday night. Police intervened at the home in the 300 block of W. 10th Street after the roommates’ argument grew heated. Police dispelled the problem, only to discover that it shouldn’t have happened in the first place. Both men had restraining orders against each other that had not yet been served. The officers went ahead and served the papers and, while they were at it, arrested a third roommate, 34-year-old Raymond Donahue of Claremont, for an outstanding warrant for drinking in public.

Wednesday, July 26 Forty-year-old David Rodriguez of Claremont couldn’t help but add to his collection. After being spotted carting off one stolen bike from the Mt. San Antonio Gardens retirement community, he came back for more, according to Detective Robert Ewing. This time, however, police were ready. Though not in possession of any stolen property at the time, officers caught up with him. Mr. Rodriguez was also in possession of a drug pipe. He was arrested. Thursday, July 25 It wasn’t a bowl of Wheaties that helped fuel 40-year-old Paul Marmolejo’s early-morning bike ride. Mr.
Marmolejo admitted to smoking a bowl of meth before setting out on his cycle, according to Det. Ewing. He was arrested and released with a citation for his unconventional breakfast choice. Friday, July 26 Troubles have already begun for the Harvey Mudd Learning and Teaching building, and the construction isn’t even complete yet. More than $7500 in cable equipment was stolen from the building, located at 300 E. Foothill Boulevard. There is no surveillance footage of the crime and no fingerprints were recovered from the crime scene. A grand theft report was taken.

Three seats open in current school board election; one incumbent has filed
fter a nearly 6-week summer break in school board meetings, it may seem like not much is happening in the Claremont Unified School District. CUSD, however, is gearing up for the November 5, 2013 election.
Three local school board seats are currently open, that of board president Mary Caenepeel, board vice president Steven Llanusa and board member Jeff Stark. Of the 3—who have a deadline of Friday, August 9 to file—only Mr. Llanusa, who has served on the Claremont school board since 2005, had declared his candidacy as of press time. Ms. Caenepeel, who has also served on the board since 2005, said Thursday that she was “still debating” whether or not to run. Mr. Stark, who joined the
board in 2009, was out of town and couldn’t be reached for comment. Three non-incumbent candidates from the local community have declared their intention to run, according to information available on the website www.lavote.net. They include Nancy Treser-Osgood, Joseph Salas and Paul A. Steffen. Ms. Treser-Osgood is the director of alumni relations at Pomona College. Among other commitments, Mr. Salas has served on Claremont’s Traffic & Transportation Commission. Mr. Steffen is the owner of Wheeler Steffen Sotheby’s International Realty as well as Wheeler Steffen Property Management. The COURIER has not yet spoken with Ms. Treser-Osgood, Mr. Salas or Mr. Steffen regarding their candidacies. Mr. Llanusa notes that his platform is available on the website www.electllanusa.com. He said he is hoping to add another facet of his platform in the near future: his dedication to use some of the
state money returning to local schools to restore some of the many cuts that have been made in Claremont schools over the last few years. Chief among these, he told the COURIER, is the restoration of $300,000 in cuts to district transportation, resulting in the loss of busing to numerous sporting events and field trips. Mr. Llanusa said he welcomes the opportunity to run for his office against a slate of qualified candidates. “Having to run every 4 years helps prevent complacency among any elected officials,” he said. “It gives you a chance to share which of your goals you have accomplished, those you still need to accomplish and what else you would like to address.” More on the school board election and the various candidates will be included in future editions of the COURIER.

School district serves up samples at annual Food Faire
The Claremont Unified School District will be hosting its annual Food Faire on Wednesday, August 7 from 9 a.m. to noon at El Roble Intermediate School. The yearly event offers an opportunity for parents and students to try out the various items, old favorites and new homemade dishes, that will be served this year in CUSD cafeterias. Families can also pick up applications for the National School Lunch Program, to find out if they are eligible to participate in the free or reduced meal program. The city of Claremont will also be on hand with info about services available to the public. And healthy eating inspiration will be present in the form of costumed characters, the Dancing Grape, the Danc-
ing Apple and the Dancing Carrot. Over the last several years, Director of Nutrition Services Rick Cota and his crew have eliminated 70 percent of processed foods. They have also introduced local produce, instituted Meatless Mondays and Fresh Food Fridays, and forged partnerships with neighboring restaurants such as Boca Burgers, which prepare fresh-made meals on site at Claremont schools. This year’s focus will be the introduction of 2 servings of whole wheat per lunch. Members of the CUSD have taken note, with the number of lunches served in Claremont schools each year growing from 300,000 to 600,000, an expansion that allows more money to be used for healthier ingredients.

Who can’t be in the (Claremont) community?
by John Pixley
Uh-oh. Here he comes!
And right when I was really settling down into summer, when I was relaxing into the sprawl of the laziest, care-free days of July and early August. Right when I was getting ready to go on a nice vacation. It was the week after the Fourth of July, with summer sinking into its long afternoon snooze, and there was a little article on the bottom of the page in the Los Angeles Times about a serial rapist being released from a mental hospital. Something was familiar, and I read the first 2 or 3 paragraphs—and, sure enough, Claremont was in the article. This was the man from Claremont. Or he was living with his parents in Claremont. His name is Christopher Hubbart, and I remember him being called the “pillowcase rapist,” having admittedly raped more than 40 women around the state and having been in and out of prison over 20 years, and I remember there being protests outside his parents’ house. This was something like 20 years ago. Actually, according to an article in these pages that I read after I returned from my trip, the Claremont protests were in 1994. I also remember that, at the time, there was a controversial new policy that people who committed crimes because of mental illness or a psychological condition were to be kept in a prison hospital after serving their prison time until it was deemed that the mental illness or psychological condition was remedied or under control. To the relief of all, Mr. Hubbart, described by a state official as “uncontrollably compulsive,” was a candidate for this policy and was sent away to a prison hospital. Out of sight, out of mind. Until now. The story in the LA Times was about county prosecutors and legislators fighting a ruling in May by Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Gilbert T. Brown that Mr. Hubbart, having passed a psychological examination after multiple failed attempts, be freed in Los Angeles County under the condition that he be heavily supervised and continue
getting treatment. In his ruling, Judge Brown stated that Mr. Hubbart, who is now 62, “would not be a danger to others due to his diagnosed mental disorder while under supervision [of a parole officer] and treatment in the community.” According to this and subsequent articles in the Times as well as the one in the July 12 COURIER, LA County prosecutors, supported by officials like Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, filed an injunction to keep Mr. Hubbart from being released in this county, instead proposing that he be freed in Santa Clara County, the site of his last crime. That is, if he can’t be kept behind bars. This request was denied, as I read in the Times a day or 2 after I returned (and later in these pages). But the article also pointed out that it will take up to a year to find “appropriate housing” for Mr. Hubbart. It was furthermore noted in the July 12 COURIER article by Beth Hartnett that Mr. Hubbart no longer has ties to Claremont, that his parents are deceased and the family’s house has been sold. I’m wondering if any of this is enough. Yes, we may have another year not to worry about Mr. Hubbart but, after this, he will be living not too far from or near or very near to us. What then? I’m wondering if it will be enough that Mr. Hubbart will be under heavy surveillance, that he will be wearing an electronic monitor, that he will continue to receive therapy. And as Claremont City Manager Tony Ramos has said, “We are aware of it, our chief of police is aware of it. We are keeping an eye on the situation.”
I’m wondering if, even though, yes, he was arrested and rearrested numerous times and, yes, repeatedly failed psychological tests, it is enough that doctors and mental illness experts and subsequently a judge have deemed that Mr. Hubbart now will “not be a danger to others,” and all the more so with this heavy supervision. There is also the fact that Mr. Hubbart is clearly well aware of his condition and that it is, to say the least, a problem. In 1994, just 8 hours after being released from prison and as noted by parole officers, “he reported feeling that he was losing control of himself.” Is any of this enough? I wonder. Is there room, is there a place in Claremont, for someone who so clearly needs help, who so clearly needs compassion—firm compassion, yes, but compassion?—or is he just too dangerous? Is he just too sick and horrible? And I’m wondering why it is fair that Mr. Hubbart be freed in Santa Clara County and not in Los Angeles County. Mayor Opanyi Nasiali pointed out that Claremont is a college town. True, and very much something to think about, but aren’t there colleges in Santa Clara County? Then there’s the argument that it is much cheaper, saving taxpayers’ money, to house someone like Mr. Hubbart in the community, even with much monitoring, than keeping him in prison. I’m wondering if any of this matters, or is there no room for someone like Mr. Hubbart in Claremont? What about for another sexual offender who has completed a prison sentence, for homeless people and the services they need, for group homes for foster kids and the developmentally disabled? Or for a Trayvon Martin? The news and questions are difficult and don’t lay out by the summer pool so well. And they certainly don’t go off on vacation.
Claremont COURIER/Friday, August 2, 2013
Dear Editor: In the July 19 COURIER, Bob Gerecke reminds us of the reasons we need to be proactive in dealing with climate change while it is still possible. I appreciated his timely letter. I’m a pastor and a grandfather, but I am only a student when it comes to learning about climate change issues and solutions. I am learning about the relentless impact of carbon emissions from fossil fuels entering the atmosphere and increasing the greenhouse effect on the planet, driving up planet temperature, which is bringing about the problems Mr. Gerecke refers to. What can we do about it? The smartest answer I’ve seen to date has been proposed by climate scientist Dr. James Hansen, which is a steadily-rising tax on carbon-based fuels that returns revenue to the public. This market-based solution is one that appeals to both liberal and conservative legislators. Conservatives such as Greg Mankiew, advisor to George W. Bush and Mitt Romney, and George Shultz, Secretary of State under Ronald Reagan, embrace a revenue-neutral carbon tax because it makes fossil fuels pay for their true costs to society. It corrects the distortion in the free market that gives dirty energy an edge over clean technology. Those who have studied this approach say that once this distortion is corrected, the market will move away from fossil fuels and towards clean energy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Returning carbon tax revenue to households will enable Americans to make this transition without economic pain. For more information, visit the website citizensclimatelobby.org. Dave Lutz
Climate change is real
monumental Voting Rights Act (VRA) of 1965. The decision in the case of Shelby County, Alabama v. Holder erased fundamental protections against racial discrimination in voting that have been effective for more than 40 years and opened the floodgates for a wave of attacks on voters. Only strong action from Congress can fix the court’s mistake. Before the ink was even dry on the decision, several states rushed to implement racially-discriminatory, anti-voter laws, including several states where the League of Women Voters had previously succeeded in blocking voter restrictions in the courts and state legislatures. Sadly, this is only the beginning. Without a strong VRA, our ability to fight off antivoter legislation and keep our elections free, fair and accessible is significantly weakened. As we approach the 48th anniversary of this historic civil rights legislation, the VRA remains an essential protection against the thinly veiled discrimination that still threatens Americans’ right to vote. Congress needs to move swiftly to overcome this decision and restore the effectiveness of the VRA. The Shelby decision is a call to action for all who believe all Americans should have fair and equal access to the ballot. Now is the time to contact your member of Congress and tell him or her to repair the VRA before any more damage is done.

Dear Editor: We need to realize that climate change is real. I’ve been raised to love our Mother Earth, it’s people, and the creatures that live here, too. When we don’t take care of all of this, they get destroyed, malformed, sick and habitats and nature as it once was is nearly becomes extinct because of human's selfishness for their need to survive off what humans have created at the turn of the century in the 1900s. So now, men see fit to use whatever seems fit to use on this planet for themselves to survive. I love my trees and shrubs, and all the plants in my yard, and I know that they are in harmony with the insects, reptiles and other rodents and people that pass my home enjoy all these same things in my yard as I do, too. I’m an animal care giver and love all animals. I don’t want to see them or their homes or environment taken away from them or their habitats harmed either. The earth is our home. And we need to protect and care for it as humans did before the 1900s.

Bruce Walter Plumb, a 37-year employee of the Claremont Unified School District, died on July 23, 2013. He was 58. Mr. Plumb was born on October 16, 1954 in Algona, Iowa to David Walter and Marilyn Plumb. He graduated from Pomona High School in 1972 and served in the US Navy during the Vietnam War from 1972 to 1975, where he was stationed on the command ship USS Blue Ridge. The Blue Ridge and its crew had a support role in the de-mining of North Vietnamese waters in 1973, and participated in the historic helicopter evacuation of Saigon in April of 1975. After being honorably discharged, Mr. Plumb took a job as a custodian with the Claremont Unified School District. He would continue to work for CUSD for nearly 4 decades, rising to the position of Lead Grounds Supervisor. He also put in many hours of service representing his colleagues with the California School Employees Association. Throughout his career, he commuted from Wrightwood, where he raised his son Matthew and his daughter Tanya. His children say he was a loving father, who enjoyed growing tomatoes, barbecuing and getting together with friends. Other hobbies included listening to classic rock music and reading avidly, with a particular focus on rock ‘n roll biographies and historical nonfiction about subjects of in-
Longtime CUSD employee, veteran, loving father
Reader’s Comments section of the Claremont COURIER, never sugar-coated and always accompanied by a quote from one of his favorite songs. A February 2011 letter provides a vivid example. Mr. Plumb saluted the CHS football team for the previous year’s successful playoff bid; censured the audience at a recent school board meeting for being uncivil to the board, comparing their comments to dialogue from Lord of the Flies; and encouraged the board to continue its search for a new superintendent. “I know this letter will draw some unfriendly fire,” he wrote. “But like my old pals Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers would say, ‘No, I won’t back down.’” In an email addressed to all CUSD employees, Superintendent of Student Services Kevin Ward emphasized that Mr. Plumb’s critiques came from the best of places. “His sometimes cantankerous words could not mask a deep love for what he did and for all of us...,” Mr. Ward noted. “Bruce’s legacy to CUSD is his passion for the students and staff of this district and his efforts to ensure our facilities were the best that they could be, and that issues were fixed quickly so we all could do what we need to do.” Mr. Plumb’s colleagues are mourning the loss of a fixture in the Claremont school district. “Bruce served with pride and passion,” CUSD Service Director Rick Cota said. “He was always the first to arrive daily at our Service Center, and often was the first voice someone heard on the phone when needing assistance. “I am honored to have had the opportunity to have Bruce work for and with me. I am grateful for getting to know Bruce and listen to his ideas,” Mr. Cota continued. “He was a dedicated family man; he served our country in the Navy and he always was a voice for the voiceless.” Mr. Plumb is survived by his mother, Marilyn Plumb of Claremont; by his brother, David Plumb of Claremont; by his son and daughter-in-law, Matthew and Gabriela Plumb of Bloomington; by his daughter and son-in-law, Tanya and Timothy Bartlett of Wrightwood; and by his nephews, Daniel and Robert Plumb. He also leaves his uncle, Richard Tuttle and his wife Pat; his aunts, Winifred Hanzlicek and Patricia Anderson; and his cousins, Jeff, Kent, Lynn, Mark, Greg, Charlotte, Bill, Ken and Tom. A community-wide service is being planned for September. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the American Diabetes Association, 611 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 900, Los Angeles, CA 90017.
terest like the Vietnam War. Mr. Plumb was a private person when you first met him but once someone was in his inner circle, “they were in for life,” his son shared. Mr. Plumb enjoyed getting together with members of his CUSD team and often joined co-workers for a friendly game of tennis on the Claremont High School courts before heading home. Mr. Plumb was passionate about maintaining a high level of education and good working conditions in the Claremont Unified School District. His outspoken opinions often found their way into the

Pitzer administrator, beloved wife, connoisseur of culture
Margaret Eleanor Carothers, a longtime Claremont resident, died on Wednesday, July 17 following a brief illness. She was 65. Ms. Carothers had recently retired as Director of Financial Aid at Pitzer College; she had worked in the field of student financial aid for Pitzer from 1969 until her retirement in 2012, assuming a similar position with the Claremont Graduate University during the 1980s before returning to Pitzer. She was skilled in her work and deeply committed to supporting students. Abby Parsons, who was a professional associate and a personal friend for 4 decades, has noted that “Margaret was a mentor to many younger colleagues in the financial aid world, and 2 young women who worked with her became president of the California Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, something that made her quite proud.” Ms. Carothers was born in Oakland, California in 1948. She moved with her family to Livermore, California in 1952 when her father took a job as researcher at Livermore Radiation Laboratory (now Lawrence Livermore Laboratory). She graduated from Livermore High School in 1965, and spent the next year as an au pair with a family in England. Upon her return to the United States, she came to Claremont and entered Pitzer College. Juggling work and school, Ms. Carothers completed her degree in economics in 1980. As a young woman, Ms. Carothers enjoyed swimming and played soccer. According to her own self-description, she was, along with her late husband, a “culture vulture.” With her spouse John E. Murphy—who predeceased her in 2006—she annually subscribed to the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Mark domestic travels until her illness, usually accompanied by good friends. Among the most recent excursions was a magnificent cruise with favored companions to Alaska. Always when returning from a special expedition, she carried with her atypical, charming and much-appreciated presents for her many friends, who notably included Zoe Levy, her BFF under 20. As her sister Katherine has observed, “Margaret had a dazzling, fabulous shoe collection.” But perhaps her most distinctive novelty obsession was with hippos. On her own, and from friends’ gifts, she collected over the years hippopotamus reproductions in a variety of modes and sizes, including the giant hippo sculpture her husband bought for her that graces her freshly reconfigured back yard. Ms. Carothers was also civic minded. She served on the board of directors for the Claremont Chapter of the American Red Cross and participated in its blood drives and fundraising for disaster relief, and she volunteered annually with the Union Station Pasadena Homeless Shelter in providing Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners to the homeless at Pasadena’s Central Park. Peter and Pat Coye were longtime neighbors. Mr. Coye shared that “Margaret was married to John Murphy for many years, bringing love, intellectual challenge, humor and companionship to someone much loved by the Claremont community. The love that John Murphy had for Margaret was one of the great love stories of Claremont.” Throughout her life, Ms. Carothers attracted a wide variety of close friends. As Ms. Parsons has explained, she had many “pockets” of friends who initially did not know one another; she became
Taper Forum, several other theatrical venues (usually smaller stages, to which she provided financial contributions), the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, Los Angeles’ major art museums and the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden. In addition, she was a regular participant in a local book-reading club and frequently attended the Los Angeles Times Spring Book Festival. Indeed, she was steadfastly au courant in matters literary and theatrical. A natural, but decorous bon vivant, she loved to entertain and was a great cook. Her famed dinner parties featured excellent food, ample drink and spirited conversation among the animated guests honored to have been there. In the company of her husband, Ms. Carothers traveled extensively, both in the United States and overseas. One of their favorite destinations was Ireland, because it was the site of her husband’s ancestors and because she so enjoyed the country. She continued her foreign and
the hub around which the pockets orbited, and, particularly in her last days, those pockets fused into a single bond of camaraderie. The circle of friends and acquaintances whose lives she touched continued to expand and thicken as time went on. Weekly dining partners Penny Myrdal and Juanita Uster, both widowed, as was Ms. Carothers, relate that “for almost 7 years, all things were canceled if they fell on a Tuesday night. That night became sacred, as it was a night of friendship and healing, a night to take a few more steps toward acceptance on the journey of widowhood.” Good friend David Levy remembers that one of Ms. Carothers’ favorite sayings, penned by Dr. Seuss, was “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” It’s a fitting adage for Ms. Carothers’ life, for, as her longtime friend John Moore said, “It was filled with treasured moments, and countless friends, colleagues, students and family will remember her—and those valued moments— with heartfelt fondness.” Ms. Carothers is survived by her sisters, Katherine Carothers of Denver, Colorado and Alison Hetrick of Tracy, California; by her brother and sister-inlaw, Thomas and Andrea Carothers of Washington, DC and Budapest, Hungary; by her stepchildren, John Prentice Murphy of Alexandria, Virginia and Kristin Murphy-Avina of Los Alamitos, California; and by several nieces and nephews, including Jennifer Marlar Graham, Matthew Marlar, Christopher Carothers, Vera Carothers and Roza Carothers. A memorial service will be held for Ms. Carothers on Saturday, August 3 at 9 a.m., at Oak Park Cemetery, 410 S. Sycamore Ave.

Longtime Claremont resident Karen Graf died on Saturday, July 27, 2013 with her family by her side. She was 68. Ms. Graf was born in Cleveland, Ohio on August 5, 1944 to Joseph and Josephine Krizek. Some of her happiest childhood memories were spent enjoying her summers and holidays with family on Kelley’s Island in Lake Erie. After 2 years at Heidelberg University in Tiffin, Ohio, she moved to Albuquerque to attend the University of New Mexico, graduating in 1967 with a degree in elementary education. She moved to Pomona to teach at Lincoln Elementary after graduation and, while teaching there, she met her husband Rod on a blind date. They were married 6 months later in March of 1972 and she moved into his house in Claremont. Ms. Graf continued teaching and raising her 2 children, and received a master’s degree from Cal Poly Pomona
Devoted teacher, loving mother and grandmother
in education. In 1985, she began teaching sixth grade at Carnelian Elementary in Alta Loma, from which she retired in 2005. She had an immense dedication to teaching, which was evident in the way she was always brainstorming for crafts and creative ideas to capture her students’ imaginations. In retirement, Ms. Graf delighted in spending time with her grandchildren, and in knitting and crocheting with her beloved bulldog Leroy by her side. She turned out countless creations like baby blankets and hats, and regularly popped into Phebie’s NeedleArt to browse the yarn selection and canoodle with fellow crafters. Ms. Graf also forged happy memories traveling with her husband, including trips back to Kelley’s Island, a cruise from New England and up the St. Lawrence River into Canada and another to Alaska. Ms. Graf had a wide social circle—often getting together with friends from the school district for lunch or a trip to the beach—and made new friends wherever she went. She will be greatly missed, her family shared. Ms. Graf is survived by her husband of 41 years, Rod Graf; by her son and daughter-in-law, Jeff and Katie Graf of Rancho Cucamonga; by her daughter, Cara Graf of Pomona; and by her grandchildren, Kaitlyn, Kyle and Giuliana. A viewing will be held at Todd Memorial Chapel in Claremont, 325 N. Indian Hill Blvd., on Friday, August 9 from 5 to 8 p.m. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, August 10 at 10 a.m., also at Todd in Claremont. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Inland Valley Humane Society and SPCA.

Entrepreneur, loving father and grandfather, Porsche connoisseur
Randolph Leonard Hargrave died on the morning of Saturday, July 27, 2013 at his Laguna Beach home, among his family and with his dog on his lap, from chronic lung failure due to a severe reaction to a medication. He was 72. Mr. Hargrave, known to family members and close friends as Randy, was born on March 27, 1941 in Upland, California to Hallett Leonard and Lena Ashton Hargrave. He graduated from Claremont High School in 1960 and then went to the school of hard knocks shortly thereafter as he pursued various jobs and business ventures in the real world. Mr. Hargrave married Kathleen “Katie” Jane Morgan on April 29, 1961, and they lived together in different parts of Claremont, California for the next 35 years. Always fond of the beach and their second home in Laguna Beach, they made a permanent move to Laguna Beach in the late 1990s. In his early newlywed years, Mr. Hargrave bought into business with Al Prezler, becoming co-owner of San Dimas Ready Mix. He devoted much of his work life and effort into helping this business thrive. Nonetheless, he found time to be very involved in the lives of his 3 children, Deborah, Hallet and Randy Jr., from participation in Little League and bowling leagues to taking them with him on hunting and fishing trips. Mr. Hargrave was active as a member of the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America and was a man of many hobbies, including drag racing, car collecting and traveling and driving his Porsche with his San Gabriel Valley Porsche Club friends. In 1984, Mr. and Mrs. Hargrave purchased what was then known as Apex Painting from a family friend. The company has proved to be a vital resource for the entire family for years to come. Today, with the help of Randy Sr. and his vision, the business, now known as Apex Imaging Services, has grown to extraordinary heights and gained naMr. Hargrave. His need for speed, bonding and friendship was cemented with this great group. Family life provided its own social whirl, with dinners attended by a lively collection of grandchildren’s friends, girlfriends, boyfriends and partners. Most of Mr. Hargrave’s conversations revolved around fishing, hot rods, Ferraris and, of course, his beloved Porsches. Some of his best Sunday afternoons were spent at the Marine Room in downtown Laguna Beach, where he would enjoy the bluesy beat of The Missiles of October. The family would like to thank the Mayor of Laguna, Kelly Boyd, for giving them the chance to experience those great moments. Mr. Hargrave was known as a visionary, and as someone who was passionate about his hobbies and various collections. He had another side, though, according to his grandson Hal Hargrave, Jr. “The thing that he valued most was his family,” he said. “And that vision will live on for years to come, while his

Apex has been spearheaded in recent years by Mr. Hargrave’s oldest son Hal, joined by his daughter Deb, son Randy Jr. and his wife, who “never slows down.” On any given day, most of Mr. Hargrave’s grandkids are visible on the premises of the Apex office in Pomona, California. In the last few years, under Mr. Hargrave’s leadership, the company has taken on a new shared interest with the Be Perfect Foundation, a nonprofit organization aimed at helping spinal cord injury victims with financial needs, founded by his grandson Hallett Hargrave and immediate family, with his daughter-in-law Lorie Hargrave serving as the key point and day-to-day operator. Mr. and Mrs. Hargrave were fortunate enough to gain friendships through the San Gabriel Valley Porsche Club, South Coast PCA, 356 Club, PDCA and local Lagunians. Their love of wine and travel took them on trips all over the globe, where they were sure to meet new lifelong friends. Touring with longtime friends in their Porsches around the United States was always a highlight for

Hargrave, Corey Hargrave, Hailey Hargrave, Bella Hargrave, Randi Lee Hargrave, Jennifer Rowler and Carissa Bailey; and by a great-grandchild, Kaydrien Shirlock. Services for Mr. Hagrave will be held on Tuesday, August 6 at 3 p.m. at the Laguna Beach Presbyterian Church, 415 Forest Ave. in Laguna Beach. A reception will immediately follow the services at the Hotel Laguna, 425 S. Coast Highway in Laguna Beach. A private burial will be held at Oak Park Cemetery in Claremont. In lieu of flowers and condolences, the family requests that all donations be made out to the Be Perfect Foundation in Randy Hargrave’s name and mailed to 720 Indigo Ct., Pomona, CA 91711.

Barbershop group stays tuned by singing sweet harmonies
espite its recent growth, Claremont has always been known for its small-town feel, and what is more appropriate to a small town than a local barbershop group.
The Inland Empire Harmony Carousel Chorus, an all-male barbershop group open to those throughout Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties, has been keeping it quaint since 1952. With ongoing regional performances, like their recent stop at Hillcrest Retirement Community in La Verne, the crooners continue to doo-wop their way into the hearts of local old-time music lovers. While barbershop often conjures up the image of pinstripes and boater hats, the men of the carousel chorus are adding their own spin to the traditional barbershop style. “You think of barbershop and you think of 4 old guys singing ‘Sweet Adeline’ with straw hats, which we do, but we’re more well-rounded than that,” joked the ensemble’s president, Tom Duval. A recent international barbershop competition sponsored by the group’s host organization, the Barbershop Harmony Society, helps illustrate his point. Earlier this month, thousands of the organization’s 27,000 a capella singers gathered in Toronto, Canada for the yearly singoff. The first-place organization, the Toronto Northern Lights, ditched the oldtimey garb for vegetable suits to perform their rendition of “Age of Asparagus” and other produce parodies. While vegetable attire has yet to grace the Inland Empire chorus’ costume rack, contemporary tunes have found their way onto the musical lineup, including favorites like Elton John’s “Can You Feel
Claremont resident Tom Scali warms up his voice on Tuesday during one of the regular rehearsals of the Inland Empire Harmony Carousel Chorus in Ontario.

the Love Tonight?” and a number of hits by The Beach Boys. Though switching up their serenade with more recent ditties, they still love to sing the classics like “Hello, Mary Lou” and “Lida Rose,” to name a couple. The classic melodies harken back to the beginnings of barbershop, so-named for the social gatherings men would have at local salons. As history has it, the men would sing and harmonize while waiting their turn in line, giving birth to the melodies that carry on today. While their meetings might not take place at a salon, the carousel chorus is happy to continue in the tradition of music and fellowship. “Everyone is warm and inviting, and in my 2-and-a-half years with the group it hasn’t changed,” shared chorus member David Rivas. “We’re political but don’t speak politics. We are religious but
don’t promote religion. We are just there to sing.” When not striking up a tune themselves, they are happy to teach others the tricks of the trade. Training is not a requirement and, in fact Mr. Rivas admitted that he had never received formal training. He stumbled into barbershop as an adult, and now says he’s hooked. In fact, he likes it so much he has expanded his choral involvement to not one, but 3 barbershop groups. While the schedule may spread him thin, it hasn’t kept him from giving up his post-performance leisure time with fellow chorus members. While concerts traditionally run one to 2 hours, the men frequently stick around for a meal or a drink, often leading to an impromptu encore performance. Joining in on the spontaneous concerts is Claremont resident Tom Scali, who
joined the group last January. Though new to the carousel chorus, Mr. Scali is no barbershop beginner. The chorus is allowing him the opportunity to put decades’ worth of barbershop singing to good use again, though he speaks from experience when he says it doesn’t take years of practice to fall into step with the carousel chorus. “Almost anyone can join,” he admitted. “If you enjoy music and enjoy singing, it’s for you.” Mr. Duval, a former stand-up comedian, didn’t have much musical training, but found barbershop to be right up his alley. “I thought it was going to be corny and I fell in love,” he said of his first meeting. “There’s just something about the harmony that gets you every time.” He invites others to join in the experience. The Inland Empire Harmony Carousel Chorus meets every Tuesday at 7 p.m. Visitors and new members are welcome.

Technicolor dream of prolific painter graces Claremont Forum
This painting titled Order & Chaos is the title piece for Ken Daleʼs show at the Claremont Forum.
en Dale has always been impressed by the way creative endeavors can express big ideas, including the power of spirituality. It wasn’t until he retired to Pilgrim Place 17 years ago, however, after a 45-year career as a college and seminary professor in Japan, that he slowed down enough to focus on his own art-making potential.
Mr. Dale, 87, has played piano and pipe organ all his life, a pursuit that he often “put on the shelf” during his busy working years. Now he plays more, often taking time to compose “jazz hymns,” his own arrangements of spirituals and gospel songs. And, while he dabbled a few times in the visual arts, it wasn’t until recently that he really picked up a brush and began to paint. Three years ago, a fellow Pilgrim, Eleanor Scott Meyers, took it upon herself to form a painting class at the local retirement community. “I said, ‘why not give it a try?’ I wasn’t very good in
COURIER photos/Steven Felschundneff Artist Ken Dale began painting about 3 years ago as part of a painting class at Pilgrim Place, where he lives. His work gained notice during the last Pilgrim Place Festival and now he has a one-man show titled “Abstract Expressionism: Order & Chaos,” currently on display at the Claremont Forum.
class,” the self-effacing Mr. Dale said. “I’ve been doing it ever since.” He’s been pursuing his new avocation with such vigor that he’s amassed a considerable body of work. Thirtyeight of his paintings are included in his first solo exhibit, titled “Abstract Expressionism: Order and Chaos,” and on view throughout August in the Claremont Forum, home to the Prison Library Project bookstore in the Packing House. The show opens tonight, Friday, August 2, with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Mr. Dale will be on hand to meet visitors and discuss his work.
His canvases are relatively small, 12” X 9” and smaller. But they pulse with bright colors and movement. He prefers to paint with acrylic and watercolors. In more tentative hands, the latter media can tend to be a bit wan. Not so with Mr. Dale, who is foremost a colorist, a propensity that can be seen in the flame-colored palette of “Energy Afloat” and the jewel tones of “Blue Universe.” Even a more introspective piece like his “Dark Moment” shows the light of an inner, fomenting optimism, with traces of scarlet, blue and white dappling the darkness, turning the black to silver. Mr. Dale may reach for abstraction, but there are recognizable elements in his canvases, including biblical motifs like crosses and doves, and even Japanese characters. Often, you have to look for the crosses, which Mr. Dale feels parallels the way you have to seek life’s spiritual core in a world that sometimes seems to careen rather than spin. His reverence for God, the world of spirit and the chaos of creation are evident in the stain glass-hued sacred geometry of “Cruciform III” and in the dynamism with which he created his own mixed-media Big Bang in “Power Unleashed.” Elizabeth Preston is a local artist and owner of Elizabeth’s Art Studio, where she teaches art and creative journaling. She has not taught Mr. Dale, but she was delighted to help him curate his first exhibition. Finding canvases worthy of display was no problem. Convincing Mr. Dale—who says “I don’t feel comfortable with people calling me an artist”—to affix his name and a price tag to labels for his work was another matter. She insisted, however, that he take credit for his increasingly prolific output. “I think his work’s magnificent,” she said. “This kind of beauty needs to be fostered in our society. People begin to forget what beauty is.” The work of Mr. Dale, who teaches tai chi at Pilgrim Place, is not overtly Asian in theme. He believes, though, that his decades in Japan influenced him by enhancing his sensitivity to life’s lovelier moments.

Huntington Library, CGU cocurator showcase extraillustrated books
new exhibit, “Illuminated Palaces: Extra-Illustrated Books From the Huntington Library,” will be on view at the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens through October 28, 2013. From the 18th to the early 20th century, extra-illustration or “grangerizing” as it was often called flourished in England and America. The pastime involved collectors embellishing books by pasting into their pages original art, prints and engravings, maps, autographed letters, sections of other books, manuscripts and memorabilia. The Huntington owns more than 1000 of these “illuminated palaces,” many purchased by founder Henry E. Huntington, who obtained some of the finest specimens of extra-illustration to be found. More than 40 examples

of this bygone pursuit are featured in the show, which was organized by co-curators Stephen Tabor, curator of early printed books at the Huntington, and Lori Anne Ferrell, an English and history professor at Claremont Graduate University. In a recent article in the Los Angeles Times, Mr. Tabor elaborated on the art of extra-illustration. “Collectors combined books with other treasures by dismantling (critics would say ‘vandalizing’) the original volumes, mounting the leaves and added material in paper frames, and rebinding the whole lot,” he described. Exhibit highlights include a volume, containing the books of Romans and 1 Corinthians, from the Huntington’s most-famous example of extra-illustration, the Kitto Bible. The Kitto Bible is thought to have begun as 2 volumes but grew to 60 after printmaker James Gibb inserted more than 30,000 prints, engravings, drawings (including a William Blake watercolor) and portions of other historic Bibles. “It’s an incredible work, absolutely astonishing,” Ms. Ferrell said. Visitors will also get glimpses of Richard Bull’s 36volume version of James Granger’s 1769 “Biographi-

COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff Artist Ken Dale chats with a friend while installing his upcoming show “Abstract Expressionism: Order & Chaos,” on Wednesday at the Claremont Forum.
“The Japanese tend to be very sensitive to beauty, especially the beauty of nature—cherry blossoms and Mt. Fuji when snowcapped,” he said. “Some of that aesthetic appreciation rubbed off on me.” nother salutary influence is the critiques of Mr. Dale’s wife, Eloise. She is a musician who gives organ concerts at the Claremont United Church of Christ each year and is also adept at Japanese floral arranging. Sometimes he’ll look at a painting and say, “I’m almost done.” Mrs. Dale may gently disagree, pointing to an area of the canvas that can be enhanced. Mr. Dale also receives support from members of his men’s group, who meet twice a month to catch up with one another’s lives and discuss concerns. Four such friends were on hand at the Claremont Forum on Wednesday afternoon to help Mr. Dale hang his work. Bill Moreman, who’s known Mr. Dale since coming to Pilgrim Place 15 years ago, was happy to help his friend showcase his “interesting, unique, attractive style.” Mr. Dale’s work may be unique, but his experience of continued development as he gets older is a shared one, Mr. Moreman said. “That’s the wonderful thing about retirement,” he said. “You find creativity is an ongoing process.” With Mr. Dale’s process on view, he is feeling some mixed emotions. “It’s quite impossible to see my paintings in this public space and not be impressed,” he said. “At the same time, I wonder if anyone will care to look at these.” Before the afternoon was over, a visitor to the Claremont Forum had already weighed in on Mr. Dale’s art. “Your paintings look like essays in ecology,” said Douglas Wallace, a Pilgrim who volunteers for the Prison Library Project 5 days a week. Mr. Dale’s not sure he agrees or even understands, but he welcomes such opinions. At his reception, if anyone asks him what a certain painting is supposed to be, he plans to redirect the question. “I’ll ask them, ‘What do you think? What do you feel?’” The Claremont Forum is located at 586 W. First St. in Claremont. For information, call 626-3066 or visit www.claremontforum.org. —Sarah Torribio

Camp Claremont teacher Kaci Mickelsen provides some brief fishing instruction to her students prior to hitting the pools last Wednesday at the Mt. Baldy Trout Pools. The students also received a fishing lesson on a previous day from employees of the Bass Pro Shop.
Trout pools offer ‘reel’ adventure for Claremont day camp kids
COURIER photos/Steven Felschundneff Santino Torres, 8, (in ball cap) has some company as he patiently waits for a fish to take his hook last Wednesday during a Camp Claremont field trip to the Mt. Baldy Trout Pools. At first, the trout were not biting at all but after about 30 minutes the action heated up.
here was something fishy going on when 56 kids from the Claremont Unified School District Summer Day Camp hit the Mt. Baldy Trout Pools last week, hoping to reel ‘em in.
A group of girls admire the rainbow trout they caught during the trip to the trout pools. Camp Claremont Site Supervisor Kim Mueller helps Jocelyn Williamson, 11, with her fish during a field trip to the Mt. Baldy Trout Pools last Wednesday. Jocelyn was one of the first students to catch a fish during the excursion.
It was just one of many field trips offered through the camp, which this year has taken on the theme “The Great Outdoors.” As anyone who has been there knows, there’s something transformative about the half-hour drive from Claremont to Baldy. You find yourself surrounded by mountains, a backdrop against which the sky looks a little bluer and the clouds a bit more picturesque. The 2 pools, which are fed by local springs, are decidedly manmade. Still, when you get to them—surrounded by trees and teeming with some 5000 rainbow trout —the outdoorsy feeling deepens. The kids split up into groups of 6 or so, supervised by a teacher, and stationed themselves at the water’s edge. They then proceeded to take turns with fishing poles, 2 to the group, loaded with a globule of bait and featuring a floating cork. The children, most in the 3rd through 6th grades, were informed that if the cork went under water, it meant they’d snagged a fish. Each group also had a couple nets so kids could help a successful angler bring the fish in. At first the students, who arrived via bus a little after 10 a.m., didn’t have much luck. Nonetheless, teacher Shawn James, who noted that fishing with kids is his favorite thing to do, maintained faith. “These kids are doing good. They’re exhibiting patience,” he said. “Most kids don’t have the patience—most adults don’t have the patience.” Before long, one kid nabbed a fish and then another and another. After a requisite scream and a moment of admiration, and a few “ewws” at the sight of the trout wriggling in the net, a member of the Mt. Baldy Trout Pools crew came over with pliers to retrieve the hook from the fish’s mouth. Trout pools owner Jim Bescoby and his employees, all family members, then proceeded to clean the fish and pack it in ice for the young fisherman to take home. Like most of his peers enjoying the field trip, 8-year-old Aiken Kilker had never been fishing before. He was a bit breathless as he described the feeling of landing his first fish. “I saw all these fish jumping out. My campmates helped me reel it in,” he shared. “It felt great to be fishing and get a fish.” Ten-year-old Alex Linden-Ross was happy to be fishing at all, let
alone coming home with a “that sucker was this long” story. Earlier in the summer, he went to Ventura and saw people fishing at the port and said, “I would like to do that.” His moment of triumph at the trout pools was a group effort, with his twin sister Emily helping him pull in his catch with a net. “I reeled it in and it started flopping,” he described. “I’ll be like, ‘Mommy, can we have fish for dinner?’” Emily laughed. “And she’ll be like, ‘Maybe later.’” It’s been a whole summer of firsts for this troop of first-time fishers, notes Kimberly Kenner, coordinator of the CUSD Summer Day Camp. In their quest for close encounters with the great outdoors, the kids have experienced adventures like zip-lining, rock-climbing and archery, to name a few. Weekly field trips and intermittent swimming jaunts are par for the course for the summer program, which costs $150 and which kids can attend for up to 9 weeks. Considering that many of the children participate in the camp for the whole 9 weeks and stay at the camp from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., it’s a bargain for families and a welcome respite for parents. The kids seem to like it, too. Samuel Williamson, a Chaparral student who turns 8 this August, said he’s finding his first year at camp to be fun. He especially enjoyed a jaunt to Universal Studios the camp took earlier this year. “I really enjoy it. I really like the field trips!” Samuel exclaimed. Mr. Bescoby, who has helped run the Mt. Baldy Trout Pools for 40 years, was happy to see another group of fisher-folk come away with the catch of the day and happy smiles. The pools, which are open in the summer on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., draw lots of visitors, particularly during the winter when the sides of Baldy Road are bumper-to-bumper with parked cars. On the average weekend, they go through 500 fish, Mr. Bescoby notes. Guests bring their own poles, paying a fee of $1, or rent poles for $2. They then pay for each trout they catch, depending on size, with most ranging from $6 to $18. Mr. Bescoby doesn’t fish much himself. “It’s like owning the donut shop. You don’t eat the donuts.” But he loves to see people fish, especially kids. “When they get their first bite, they just start screaming,” he said. The trout pools are located at 6945 Mt. Baldy Road in Mt. Baldy. For information, call 982-4286 or visit www.mtbaldytroutpools.com. —Sarah Torribio

She describes her work thusly: “The fragments of the paintings are composed in the way that I would choose to look around the room. They are similar to film stills, snapshots of the space that are being committed to memory. The fragments also serve as an obstacle for the viewer, not only limiting the visibility, but the coherent progression of time. It is not a single moment, but a compilation of moments. The viewer can never be truly aware of the sequence, or the action in omitted fragments. For me the space is negotiated slowly at times, and frantically at others. Initially, the paintings are soft and welcoming, and the composition encourages one to study each frame individually…The environment is sheltered, yet threatening, a paradox that alters the mood of the reconstructed spaces.” Opening reception: Friday, August 2 from 6 to 8 p.m.

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.

AND, JOYCE HUGHES HUSBAND AND WIFE AS JOINT TENANTS Recorded on June 16, 2006, as Instrument No. 06 1328351, of Official Records, in the office of the County Recorder of Los Angeles County, California Date of Sale: August 22, 2013 at 09:00 AM Place of Sale: At the Vineyard Ballroom of the Doubletree Hotel Los Angeles-Norwalk, 13111 Sycamore Drive, Norwalk, CA 90650 The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1274 W BASLINE RD, CLAREMONT, CA 91711 APN# 8302-015-029 The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Sale is $622,185.45. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the County where the real property is located. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder's sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to the return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee's Attorney. 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 (800) 280-2832 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.AUCTION.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 2068.00296. 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.
