National Recreation Area, good or bad?
Dear Editor: Congressmember Judy Chu is traveling the 27th Congressional District in an effort to bring attention to her proposed legislation for the National Recreation Area (NRA). What is the NRA? It’s the expansion of our national recreation area which covers more than 1000 square miles of LA County and parts of Orange and San Bernardino counties. Approximately 1.5 million residents live within the proposed boundaries, which includes over 50 communities, our local mountains, and the San Gabriel and Rio Hondo Rivers. If our rivers and other waterways come under the control of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, how will that affect our overall controls and rates? I’m having a problem with only one side of the issue being presented with the proposed legislation. At all the forums and workshops, those with opposing opinions have only been given a few minutes to voice their concerns. If Congressmember Chu has nothing to hide, then please present an open forum or a panel discussion that includes experts on both sides so we can make an informed decision as to whether this will be good or bad for our communities. I’m all in favor of protecting our moun-

tains and recreational areas, but at what cost to our local governments, schools, water and property rights? Why does the NRA need to turn Route 66 (Foothill Boulevard), our waterways and other highly populated areas into a national recreational area? On September 7, Congressmember Chu will conduct a town hall meeting to discuss the NRA. Please mark your calendars and plan on attending to get a more informed perspective of the proposed legislation. The meeting will take place at 10 a.m. at Taylor Hall, 1775 N. Indian Hill, Claremont.

For the record
Dear Editor: Thanks to Annie Carlson and the COURIER staff for the nice piece in the Almanac about Claremont music. I’m honored to be mentioned in the article alongside such illustrious musical company. For the record, I should point out that my good friend Mark Takeuchi is the bass player in the Squeakin’ Wheels and not me. Mark is a first-rate player and, as the drummer for the Squeaks, I’ve enjoyed a good musical relationship with Mark for a number of years. Again, thanks for the great work on reporting on our town.

Al Leiga
Dear Editor: I remember Al Leiga as a staunch member of the troop Committee for Boy Scout Troop 403, when his son Steve was a member of the troop while preparing to become an Eagle Scout. The troop was then sponsored by Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church in Claremont. Al and the others, most of them members of OLA, always welcomed me as the only Jewish member of the board, and later accepted me as their committee chair as well as Scoutmaster. I remember him fondly.

City gets cracking on new Cahuilla Park playground

F

ences went up around Cahuilla Park last week as construction crews set to work providing avid playground users with some updated digs.

City officials are installing an estimated $65,000 in new playground equipment at the Indian Hill Boulevard and Scripps Drive park. The new setup was deemed necessary in order to address safety concerns with the old equipment and to bring the community facility up to date with the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The Cahuilla Park playground will remain closed until September 16, according to Director of Community and Human Services Kathleen Trepa, but she maintains the new additions will be worth the wait. “The equipment was really outdated and needed to be fixed,” Ms. Trepa noted. “This is going to be a nice addition to the park that I think residents will really be happy with.” The last time Cahuilla Park received a new jungle gym was in 1997, more than 15 years ago. Since that time, a large portion of the playground geared for the 2-5 year olds has been removed due to safety concerns. The portion of the playground facilities that remain, that designated for the 2-5 year olds as well as the area for the 5-12 year olds, is not accessible to wheelchair-bound children or those with disabilities. With the help of Claremont residents, city officials sought to make a change. A community meeting was held in March with several residents of the surrounding neighborhoods in attendance. With the collaboration of the PlayPower playground manufacturing company, residents helped the city come up with a new design all could agree on. The new playground setup for the 5-12 year olds will include 2 slides, several ladders, a rock climbing structure and a track ride, or zip line, the first to appear at any Claremont park, according to Ms. Trepa. The jungle gym for the younger children will also in-

clude 2 slides and a rock climber, with the addition of an arched bridge as well as 2 steering wheels and an interactive gear panel. Both playgrounds will be updated to ADA standard and include Braille lettering for those with visual impairments. Despite neighbors’ suggestion to change the park’s wood-chipped ground covering to rubber, the wood chips will remain as the playground designer explained there are actually fewer playground injuries with the wood than the rubber. It is also believed that

the wood chips will be more durable, a goal of the overall playground redesign, Ms. Trepa noted. The work won’t slow come September 16. Once Cahuilla Park is reopened, it’s on to the next park for the community and human resources team. Wheeler Park is next on the list for needed playground upgrades. A community meeting will be held to solicit feedback on Wheeler Park’s new equipment, according to Ms. Trepa. A date for that meeting has not been set.

CMC fundraising campaign nets more than $635 million

E

arlier this month, Claremont McKenna College announced the successful conclusion of The Campaign for Claremont McKenna, which has raised a total of $635.2 million to help build, support and transform the college’s academic environment.
The campaign, which was launched in 2008 with the goal of raising $600 million, raised support for faculty and stu-

dents, enhancement of the college’s facilities and scholarships through The Fund for CMC. CMC’s new president, Hiram Chodosh, who assumed office on July 1, has vowed that CMC will continue to build on its momentum. “Achieving excellence in higher education is incredibly challenging and requires a substantial investment in our students and faculty,” CMC Board of Trustees Chairman Harry T. McMahon said. “This remarkable campaign strengthened a culture of giving in our Claremont McKenna community that will support our commitment to excellence for years to come.” Pamela Gann, president emerita,

Congresswoman schedules meet-and-greet in Claremont
Congresswoman Judy Chu invites the local community to an afternoon open house on Wednesday, August 28 at her new Claremont satellite office, located at 415 W. Foothill Blvd., Suite 122. The festivities begin at 1 p.m.

trustee professor of legal studies and George R. Roberts Fellow, highlighted the significant, longer-term accomplishments of the campaign. “CMC’s fundraising success has been translated into splendid, transformative changes on the campus, from the addition of new faculty to new scholarship programs to new co-curricular support for students to new buildings,” she noted. Alumnus and Trustee Robert Day, founder of the Trust Company of the West, provided a visionary gift of $200 million, one of the largest donations ever received by a liberal arts college, for the Robert Day Scholars Program, a unique undergraduate and graduate finance program that combines a rigorous curriculum with a rich co-curricular component. The most conspicuous sign of physical improvement at CMC is the college’s new LEED-Gold Kravis Center, designed by world-renowned and awardwinning architect Rafael Viñoly. The Kravis Center, a 5-level academic and administrative facility dedicated in 2011, has transformed the west end of campus by creating an iconic entrance. It is named in honor of Trustee Henry Kravis and Marie-Josée Kravis for their $75

million unrestricted commitment to CMC during the campaign. George R. Roberts’ unrestricted gift of $50 million helped push the college past its $600 million campaign goal. Announced in December 2012, his gift led the Board of Trustees to designate, in his honor, a state-of-the-art new fitness and athletics facility as the Roberts Pavilion. One of the main priorities of the campaign was to elevate alumni participation. Trustee A. Steve Crown, working with the college’s development staff, came up with a revolutionary way to encourage alumni to make 4-year pledges to the Annual Fund. For each pledge, Mr. Crown made a matching gift. Over one-third of all alumni have taken the Crown Challenge. Then, last fall, Mr. Crown and his wife Nancy made a $7.5 million unrestricted gift to CMC, helping propel the campaign past the $610-million mark. The Board of Trustees then designated Claremont Hall, an award-winning Silver LEED-certified student residence hall, as Crown Hall, in recognition of the gift as well as all of the Crowns’ other generous contributions during the campaign.

Claremont Heroes have special stories helping our community
Claremont residents will descend upon the LA County Fair on Thursday, September 26 to party in honor of all things Claremont for the annual Claremont Day extravaganza. Three Claremonters will have extra reason to celebrate this year. Axel Garcia, Betty Crocker and Helaine Goldwater have been named this year’s Claremont Community Heroes and will be honored in a special “Salute to our Heroes” taking place at 5:30 p.m. in Expo Hall 4. Axel, 8, is recognized for his efforts in leading a holiday toy drive at his school, Sumner/Danbury Elementary School. Through his efforts, more than 3,000 toys were collected and donated to more than 250 needy families in time for Christmas. Ms. Crocker is the founder of the Keeping the Good in Our Neighborhood crime watch group (KGNH), which began in her north Claremont neighborhood. KGNH has helped raise funds for local nonprofits including the Inland Valley Humane Society and the local police department. Ms. Goldwater is being honored for her dedicated volunteerism. When it comes to her areas of involvement the list is lengthy, spanning from Meals on Wheels and the Claremont Museum of Art to AYSO and Little League. She chairs the Pilgrim Place advancement committee, 2 water district campaigns and

CUSD announces policy for school meal programs
The Claremont Unified School District has announced its policy for free and reduced-price meals for children served under the National School Lunch and School Breakfast programs. Each school has a copy of the full policy, that may be reviewed by anyone who is interested. Following are a few numbers to give families an idea of whether they qualify. Children qualify for free lunch if they hail from a family of 3 with an annual income of $25,389 or less or from a family of 4 with an annual income of $30,615 or less. For each additional family member, $5,226 is added to the amount of annual income allowed. Children qualify for reduced lunch if they hail from a family of 3 with an annual income of $36,131 or less or from a family of 4 with an annual income of $43,568 or less. For each additional family member, $7,437 is added to the amount of annual income allowed. Children who receive Food Stamps, CalWorks, Kinship Guardian Assistance Payments (Kin-Gap) or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations benefits are automatically eligble for free meals, regardless of household income. Eligibility for a foster child is based on a separate application and solely on the amount of the child’s “personal use” income. Families who wish to participate in the free or reduced meal program must complete an application, which may be submitted at any time during the school year, and return it to their student’s school for processing. For more information, contact Claremont Unified School District Food Services at 398-0358.

City releases environmental study on townhome complex
The city of Claremont has released an initial environmental study for the proposed 95-unit townhome complex to take over the 6-acre vacancy on the southeast corner of Base Line Road and Towne Avenue. Staff asserts the project, led by developer City Ventures, will not have a significant effect on the environment, but will “enhance” the site in connection with neighboring communities. Mitigation measures in terms of air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, geology and soils, noise and transportation and traffic will be included, according to staff. A Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) has been prepared. An EIR on the area was conducted in previous years, at which time concerns were raised regarding long-term health issues associated with living near a freeway. The development at that time was expected to include low-income housing, which holds stricter standards for environmental impact on residents. Because of the health concerns, the county would not approve funding for a low-income housing project at that location.

Claremont police to conduct checkpoint this Sunday
Another DUI checkpoint is set to take place in the city of Claremont this Sunday, August 25 from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. at an undisclosed location. Officers will stop drivers to ensure they are not under the influence, are wearing seatbelts and in possession of a valid drivers license. The checkpoint was made possible by grant funding provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety.

District reviews changing CHS graduation requirements

I

n the coming years, Claremont High School students may no longer be required to take 2 semester-long classes that have been graduation requirements.
At a special study session held Monday at the Richard S. Kirkendall Education Center, 4 panels suggested that material included in two 5-unit classes, Technology Education for the 21st Century and Fitness and Health, could potentially be embedded elsewhere in students’ curriculum. Discussion by the small panels—comprised of school board members, CUSD administrators and staffers and, in one case, a CHS student—yielded the suggestion that the curriculum of Technology Education for the 21st Century could be folded into the entire K-12 curriculum. It is a move that would complement the increased technology component of student assessments in all grades now that the state is moving to the Common Core. The panelists unanimously concluded that the curriculum of Fitness and Health, a class CHS students typically take in 10th through 12th grades, could be split up and incorporated into 2 pre-existing required

courses, freshman PE and biology. In Technology Education for the 21st Century, students create documents and spreadsheets, conduct online research and “learn about digital citizenship,” among other tasks. In Fitness and Health, students learn about the consequences of sexual activity and “gain CUSD practical knowledge related NEWS to decisions that they must make concerning nutrition, hygiene, drugs, alcohol, tobacco and first aid.” It should be noted that the study session was only a discussion and that no decisions or recommendations were made that afternoon. Based on the feedback from the community stakeholders, district staff will present an updated policy on graduation requirements to be voted on by the school board at their Thursday, September 19 meeting. Superintendent Jim Elsasser did, however, discuss some potential courses of action should the board opt to phase out the classes. The district might phase out Fitness and Health one year from now, allowing time for its subject matter to be delegated to science and PE teachers. The Technology Education for the 21st Century course could remain a requirement for 2 more years while the district’s technology advisory committee mulls over how that material could be in-

corporated into the overall K-12 curriculum. Depending on the findings of the technology advisory committee, the district could at the end of that time period decide to do away with the course or to keep it and make it an even richer course, Mr. Elsasser noted. “Even the best-laid plans sometimes change,” he said. Each panel shared a concern that, with these courses no longer required at the high school, transfer students might miss out on the material. The general consensus was that more discussion is needed with regards to alternate ways transfer students can catch up on these subjects. One of the reasons the district is looking at phasing out the technology and health courses is in response to students involved in CHS’ rigorous International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement courses of study, who say it is difficult to fit a semester-long course into their already jam-packed schedules. In a system called weighted grading, students in AP and honors classes receive grades based on a 5-point rather than a 4point scale, with the argument being that students willing to take on more challenging classes should get more credit. Thus, a student who takes only AP or IB classes over the course of a year and earns all As could theoretically have a 5.0

GPA rather than a 4.0 GPA. In arguing against the Technology Education for the 21st Century and Fitness and Health requirements, IP and AP students at CHS noted that having to take non-weighted courses harms their GPAs and thus their chances of getting into a good school. Many competitive colleges are looking for students with higher and higher GPAs, a trend that one CUSD parent in attendance at Monday’s study session compared to “an arms race.” The study session was one of numerous meetings with community stakeholders that have been held over the past year while the district is updating its graduation requirements. At the end of the study session, Mr. Elsasser emphasized how valuable such gatherings are, noting that the district truly values such input from its many stakeholders. Thursday, September 5 is the next regular meeting of the Claremont school board, but it will not be held at its regular time. The meeting will begin earlier than usual, at 5 p.m., and be held in the Kirkendall Center at 170 W. San Jose Ave. in Claremont.

Backpack campaign brings shoes, smiles to students

T

he local nonprofit organization Shoes That Fit recently concluded its Backpack Campaign, a communitywide effort that yielded 250 backpacks—each filled with a pair of brand-new athletic shoes, socks and school supplies—for kids in need. These precious parcels, intended to help youngsters get off on the right foot for the school year, were distributed to children in the Claremont, Upland, Montclair, Ontario and Fontana school districts. Roni Lomeli, executive director of Shoes That Fit, emphasized the collaborative nature of the annual event, which takes place over 3 weekends in July. She gives special kudos to Susan Pearson, owner of The Bath Workshop, who has coordinated the Backpack Campaign for the past 4 years. Each year, Ms. Pearson is presented with 250 backpacks, each accompanied with a student’s pertinent information, such as their shoe and sock sizes and suggestions for grade-appropriate school supplies. The backpacks are then distributed to participating businesses in the Claremont Village, like Some Crust bakery and Stamp Your Heart Out. One shop might get anywhere from 5 to 10 empty backpacks, while another might take as many as 2025. The employees then encourage their customers to pick up the backpacks and fill them. Once the backpacks are laden with shoes, socks and other back-toschool treasures, they are returned to The Bath Workshop. Ms. Pearson and her crew, employees like Amy Long and Elizabeth Sanchez, then check each backpack making sure they contain everything they are supposed to and that the shoes do, indeed, fit. The backpacks, which are staged in The Bath Workshop’s party room, are next transported back to the Shoes That Fit headquarters in the Claremont Business Park. Shoes That Fit staffers separate the backpacks by school in preparation for pick-up. “I love the organization so much, because it’s com-

munity helping community,” Ms. Pearson said. “None of the backpacks get shipped anywhere. They are all for local children with real needs.” In recent years, the ongoing recession has spurred greater need than ever before, Ms. Lomeli said. Apart from the Backpack Campaign, the organization has already donated more than 1,300 pairs of shoes to local school districts for this school year. About a hundred of these have gone to Claremont school children. Participating schools can have up to 10 pairs of shoes delivered at a time. School staffers request donations based on need. They might contact Shoes That Fit if a child has shoes that are too small, have holes in them or are simply falling apart. There are some really sad cases, according to Ms. Lomeli. Some kids come to school with shoes repaired with duct tape; others have only flip-flops to

wear in the winter. Not long ago, Shoes That Fit received a thank-you note from a boy who was delighted with his new pair of athletic shoes. Before the organization intervened, he had been forced to wear his grandmother’s shoes because he had outgrown his own. His peers had been teasing him for wearing girls’ shoes. Such stories are heart wrenching to Ms. Pearson. “I’ve been very blessed in my life. I grew up in Claremont and went to Claremont schools not needing anything,” she said. “I identify with children who don’t have what I did growing up.” While Ms. Lomeli, her staff and volunteers admit they are occasionally brought to tears by the need out there, Shoes that Fit is ultimately about creating happy stories for children. One success story is detailed in a recent thank-you letter from a boy named Manuel: “I love my shoes. I plan to wear them almost every day. Sorry for telling, but the first time I got the shoes you gave me, I slept with them.” Over the years, the back to school campaign has netted 4,000 filled backpacks for kids like Manuel, Ms. Lomeli said. They have had similar success with their other annual event, a Spring Basket Campaign in which participants fill a basket with shoes, socks, games and goodies perfect for a child in need. If you are interested in helping out with Shoes That Fit but missed out on this year’s Spring Basket and Backpack campaigns, don’t worry: You haven’t missed the boat. There is plenty of need for brandnew athletic shoes. Just contact Shoes That Fit by calling (888) 715-4333 or by visiting www.shoesthatfit.org. “We’ve got a lot of bare shelves,” Ms. Lomeli said. “Just call us and we’ll tell you specifically what we need.” —Sarah Torribio

What was that you said?
by Mellissa Martinez

I

n a recent news story, Oprah Winfrey spoke of being slighted in Zurich as she shopped for a purse. According to the much-loved figure, a clerk refused to show her a bag on the grounds that it was too expensive. Not surprisingly, the clerk denies the accusation, saying that she simply described the bag as “more expensive,” not “too expensive.” Could this international embarrassment really just be a case of “too” versus “more”?
The story took on a life of its own, and apologies are now flying. The clerk is sorry, Oprah is sorry and, in fact, the entire city of Zurich is sorry—a public apology has been issued! Although I don’t doubt Oprah’s version, the optimistic side of me can’t help but wonder if perhaps the shopkeeper is also telling the truth. After all, a misunderstanding is defined as a mismatch between the speaker’s intended meaning and the hearer’s understanding. Sociolinguistic studies have determined that the mere existence of a language barrier causes tension. It generates a negative emotional and cognitive response and people are reluctant to seek necessary information. Maybe language is to blame for Oprah’s purse predicament. English learners have a hard time remembering that ‘too’ has a negative consequence. If someone is ‘too upbeat,’ the listener understands that a negative outcome will follow…too upbeat for what? What happened? If someone is ‘more upbeat’ or ‘so upbeat,’ there is no negative result…good for him. I’ve heard

LEX
IN THE

CITY
students say that they liked something ‘too much,’ a weekend was ‘too fun’ or a movie was ‘too good,’ to which I usually respond, too good for what? Even my toddler is struggling with ‘too.’ He demands every night that we leave his door ‘too much’ open. Although adverbs like ‘too’ and ‘more’ are frequent culprits, misunderstandings can also come from unfamiliar vocabulary, false cognates, idiomatic expressions and lack of cultural understanding. The Spanish embarazada, ‘pregnant,’ has been tripping up English speakers for years but, unfortunately, false cognates between Spanish and English have caused much worse than embarrassment. In the case of a young Florida boy, a language misunderstanding cost him dearly. He entered an emergency room complaining that he was intoxicado. The doctor, who understood the word through an English cultural context, thought that the boy was ‘intoxicated’ and treated him for a drug overdose. In Spanish, intoxicado means ‘generally not well from something that you ate or drank.’ In fact, he was suffering from a brain hemorrhage, which required a much different treatment, and he is now paralyzed.

According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, nearly half the executives at global companies believe that language barriers have spoiled crossborder deals and caused many financial losses. Although it’s costly for the companies, some wellknown global marketing translations gone bad are too funny to forget. The ‘got milk’ campaign was apparently translated into Spanish as ‘are you lactating?’ and the Coors campaign, ‘turn it loose,’ came off as the imperative ‘suffer from diarrhea.’ The Swedish furniture giant Ikea named one of its new desks Fartfull and in the 1970s, an American computer company, ‘Wang,’ was marketed in England as ‘Wang Cares.’ They pulled the add because it sounded surprisingly like the insulting ‘wankers.’ My son’s doctor recently sent me an article (also from the Wall Street Journal) pointing out that even though we speak the same language, there is still a very real language barrier between American and British English. If you need a ‘rubber’ in England, you’re not in bed, you’re at school. People live in a ‘flat’ rather than changing one, a ‘bum’ is a backside, not a derogatory title, and a ‘nappy’ is a diaper, not a sweet little afternoon slumber. One of the funnier language confusions I’ve heard between English speakers came from a blogger who writes that, while at a conference, his female colleague said goodnight and promised to knock him up in the morning. The next time you see a person struggling with English or find yourself in a country where people don’t speak your language, remember that mix-ups, misunderstandings and misinterpretations are a part of everyday life. With over 7,000 languages in the world, even superstars like Oprah are bound to fall into communication pitfalls now and again.

Escape to the country
by Jan Wheatcroft

W

hile in London in June of this year, I stayed at my usual flat that I have been renting for many years from a friend who goes off to Spain for his vacation.
He has a very large television right in the center of his small living room. I love to watch British television and, once I learned the tricks of using the controls, I found pleasure in exploring what was on offer. My new favorite program is called “Escape to the Country.” People wanting to move from city life to the English countryside were taken to visit various houses for sale in their choice area. The host, a lovely, dimpled and knowledgeable man named Alistair Appleton, guided them through country lanes and small villages to find the perfect property. After about 3 weeks in London, Frances and I traveled in a rented car (with Frances, the Englishwoman, driving), northwest from London into Herefordshire; a real slice of English country living amid small isolated farms and villages. Herefordshire borders on Wales and the English county of Shropshire, both very picturesque, with many of the buildings being of the “black and white” variety (old and with black wooden beams and posts and white walls in between). I learned that early on some of the buildings were painted red rather than white, and it was blood that was used to make the red color. We were planning on staying for 2 nights with Linda, a friend of Frances’s who had bought an old house on a large property and was slowly rebuilding and enlarging it into an entirely new and personal home. She had sent us directions as “The Country” is not a place of distinct

signs, major crossroads and signal lights. This countryside was connected by small winding lanes, some only wide enough for a single vehicle, bordered by tall hedgerows and punctuated by other small roads branching off with occasional signs and arrows to some unknown-to-us place. Her directions consisted of “go up” and “go down” and ‘turn at the telephone box,” or at the rabbit-shaped bush at the corner of the green house (which was no longer a rabbit when we passed by). We did a lot of backtracking and stopping local drivers for directions to find our way around. This was, indeed, a part of the adventure. What helped was that I was not driving. I was the map-reader, which was much more at my ability level. What I so enjoyed about these drives, besides the small winding roads, was the fresh smells and rich colors from a variety of greenery and the bright yellows of the rape fields. The dry stone walls, built without cement to hold them together, were rough and rustic. Hedges separated the different green fields, making a patchwork quilt covering the area we drove through, which was in turn covered by fat unshorn sheep. The thin shorn ones contentedly mowed the grass or dozed in whatever sun peaked through the clouds. At one point, we climbed over a virtually treeless moor, covered in heather and gorse and sheep all in the dripping mist. Another ride took us on narrow roads where trees dipped together, forming green tunnels and creating a ghostly place where fairies and gremlins would not have been out of place. And everywhere, there were bits of the sheep fleece stuck or clinging to fences and bushes. Secluded farmhouses were made of stone and often entered by long winding lanes from the roads. Cows clustered around a favorite tree, and wildflowers and buttercups were dotted alongside the roadways. We got into the habit of saying, “What would Alistair say about this area?” or “Is this an Alistair moment?” We were drunk on the countryside. After spending 2 welcoming nights in Linda’s house and experiencing the reconstruction and the designing of a home that combined the old with the new-built, we

drove on to the town of Hay-On-Wye, which straddles the border between England and Wales. It is a lovely, hilly place with many antiquarian bookstores where major book fairs are held each year. Amongst the quaint are all the modern boutiques, shops and restaurants and many antique shops as well. We also visited other towns and villages such as Ludlow and Leominster, which were picturesque and full of antique stores where I really enjoyed poking about. At night, we stayed in bed and breakfasts, once in a town, once on a farm and once in an old hotel. We ate breakfasts of eggs and fried tomatoes, mushrooms and toast, tea and coffee and sometimes fruit. Suddenly, the egg was no longer a welcome sight, even though it was presented with such pride, especially at the farmhouse. One day, we attended an auction preview with Linda, and were able to see where she found all of the wonderful discarded doors and windows she had incorporated into her building designs. One wandered around and, if something was found and wanted, a pre-bid could be made. I bid on a necklace and the next day got it as no one bid higher. After that, we stopped at a village pub, which was very small and part of someone’s home. It made for a cozy retreat and was next to a small river and houses with prideful and colorful gardens. On another cloudy and windswept afternoon, we stopped by a tiny church, St. Margaret’s, right in the middle of farmhouses and open fields. This was a very special place, as somehow it had escaped the destruction of the Puritanical zeal that swept England and left so many of the beautiful aspects of church interiors in ruins. This church had a heavy, pointed arched door and a wonderfully carved wooden screen and loft stretching the whole width of the chancel. The carving was delicate and detailed, covered in foliage, men’s heads and fleurs-de-lis. Although we visited a few other churches during our visit to the country, this one was the most special. Our “escape to the country” made for a welcome page in my travels in England, and it was strange to return to an environment of traffic lights, crowds and freeway traffic jams. I found myself agreeing with Alistair when he presented his clients with the peacefulness of the country, with houses nestled down leafy lanes amid bucolic scenes of cows and sheep. For a moment, I forgot how much I love London, with all of the excitement and enrichment it has to offer. I fell under the spell of the sweetness of rural life. Life’s pleasure is often a balancing act, a dance showcasing the highs and lows of experience. That was my time in England, spending time with a dear friend and visiting the old and new, the urban and rural, with Alistair as my secret guide.

Matthew Bradley
Musician, father, friend
A memorial service for Claremont resident Matthew Bennett Bradley will be held tomorrow, Saturday, August 24, at 3 p.m. in the Edmunds Ballroom, 170 E. Sixth St., at Pomona College. Mr. Bradley died Monday, August 12, 2013. He was 48. Born to Eleanor and Bennett Bradley in Evanston, Illinois in 1964, the young Matt spent much of his youth and teen years immersed in the “Philly” music scene, as a guitarist, singer and songwriter for a number of rock bands in the area. “He was a Philly guy through and through and never lost that attachment to his buddies back home,” his friend Charles Seward of Claremont shared. “He could still go into his Philly rant at the drop of a hat. He cherished his days with his bandmates when he had that proverbial brush with stardom in the late ‘80s.” The friendships and love of music he fostered during his youth remained a constant for Mr. Bradley throughout his life, care—I was his talentless bud.” Mr. Bradley took great strides to stay in peak physical condition and was often seen skateboarding down Yale Avenue, performing acrobatics with friends at Pilates Studio M or using a city bike rack as a makeshift pommel horse. “From any music stage to Burning Man, Matt was always performing,” Mr. Seward shared. “More importantly, Matt had a huge heart. Having endured some tough years himself, he had a special knack for engaging people from any walk of life. College professors, musicians, homeless guys, you name it. People were drawn to his genuine spirit and positive attitude.” Mr. Bradley married his wife Johannah in 1996, and they welcomed 3 children—Devin, James and Jackson—while making their home in Claremont. Professionally, Mr. Bradley worked for Pomona College as the Unix system administrator in the college’s computer science department since 2007. “Claremonters are typically oblivious

OBITUARIES
to unusual characters, so the sight of a shirtless guy with a shaved head rolling through the Village barely turned a head,” Mr. Seward said. “Matt was totally uninhibited—just cruising through life without a care in the world. But there was nothing routine about Matt’s life.” Mr. Bradley is survived by his wife, Johannah Bradley, and his children Devin, James and Jackson Bradley of Claremont. He is also survived by his mother Eleanor of Apple Valley, California and his sister Anne Bradley Ermlick and her husband David of Centreville, Virginia, along with his niece and nephew, Heidi and William Ermlick. He was preceded in death by his father, Bennett Bradley, of Apple Valley, California. Guests at the service are asked to bring a single stem flower, Mr. Bradley’s favorite, to place alongside some of his personal belongings. Donations may be made to a college fund dedicated for the Bradley children. For information regarding how to contribute, please email bradleyeducation@gmail.com.

as noted by childhood friend Ron Sciocchetti, whose fathers shared a business with Mr. Bradley’s father for 20 years. “One of the things I remember most about my bud was how I could not stop watching him play guitar,” Mr. Sciocchetti related. “I was so in awe of his talent that I would laugh, because I, of course, was talentless. But Matt didn’t

A mother’s bedtime story, 24 years in the making

W

hen Ryan McGowan asked his mother for a bedtime story, she happily obliged her son with a tale of her own invention, The Adventures of Popcorn and Persimmon. Twenty-four years later, Betsy MacLaren’s adventure story is making a comeback with a new generation of Claremont kids, and this time the tale is available in print.  
The local storyteller has made her literary debut thanks to the assistance of a couple of old friends and the service of a few new ones at Claremont Print. With their help, 200 copies of the author’s children’s story, teaching teamwork and creativity despite adversity, are now circulating at bookshops up north and out of Ms. MacLaren’s south Claremont home. Ms. MacLaren’s tale was roused out of retirement courtesy of her 7-year-old granddaughter, Megan, eager for one of her grandma’s stories. The original manuscript had remained dormant for years after garnering little interest from

COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff Betsy MacLaren has written and published a childrenʼs book titled “The Adventures of Popcorn and Persimmon,” which is a retelling of the stories she made up for her son Ryan McGowan when he was a child. The book was a joint effort, with 2 of Ms. MacLarenʼs high school friends providing the illustrations and editing the copy.

publishers. It was a different story for Claremont Print. “The graphics are fun, lively and they will be just as intriguing to the adults as they are to the kids,” noted Kari Dannenberg, graphic artist and pre-press specialist at Claremont Print. She was also impressed by the zany storyline. “It’s otherworldly without being scary. It lets kids’ imaginations run wild.” The Adventures of Popcorn and Persimmon follows the colorful tale of 2 brothers who share one body. While two-headed creatures may be an anomaly on Earth, they are not uncommon on the planet Kernel, where the main characters of Ms. MacLaren’s story reside. What is uncharacteristic about Popcorn and Persimmon is not their appearance, but their personality. The planet Kernel is comprised of 2 towns, Glim and Glum. The townsfolk of Glim are happy and optimistic while the people of Glum are just that, negative and morose. Popcorn and Persimmon—the offspring of a mother from Glim and a father from Glum—are a little bit of both. Unfortunately for Persimmon, who favors his father, Popcorn’s adventurous optimism often wins out, leading them on the interPOPCORN AND PERSIMMON continues on the next page

POPCORN AND PERSIMMON continued from the previous page

galactic travels to battle with wizards and dragons along with their faithful dog, Plooter, and their robot companion, Capper. Just as Popcorn and Persimmon rely on their friends to make it out of their adventures in one piece, Ms. MacLaren has had a lot of people to thank along her journey to the printing presses. Lifelong friend Gloria Judson brought the story to life with her vibrant illustrations, while buddy Ann Shannon tailored her grammar. When it came time to publish, Claremont Print came to the rescue when she thought her only option would be publishing through Internet giants like Amazon.   “The personal contact makes all the difference,” she recognized. “[Claremont Print] is only 3 blocks away. How could you go wrong?” It is the first time, after all, that Ms. MacLaren has delved into the print world. However, diving head-first into something new and unexpected is a sort of a hobby for this Claremont woman, who enjoys balancing her work as a registered nurse with her favorite pastime, writing. Ms. MacLaren went to school at the University of Santa Barbara with the intent of becoming an elementary school teacher. After receiving her credential, she expected to find herself in front of a

classroom. Instead she returned to the classroom as a student herself, following in the footsteps of her mother and gaining a second degree as a registered nurse. Adding to her educational repertoire, Ms. MacLaren continued to foster a passion for writing, jotting down poems when the mood struck her. “Lizard Love,” for example, was inspired while out on a walk with her dog. “Today I spied a lizard/But he did not see me...the object of his interest/Was another little she,” she wrote. In addition to her writing, she became adept at storytelling, prompted by

her son who insisted on hearing bedtime stories before falling asleep. She has no idea where she came up with a story about townspeople with 2 heads. “I always figured there would be wizards and dragons [in the story], but I didn’t expect the 2-headed boy,” she laughed. “It all just came together as I was fleshing out the stories.” While studying for a master’s in psychology, Ms. MacLaren recalls a storyteller sharing with her class a story that might inspire children who had suffered a loss to work through some of the issues. The idea prompted her to think of storytelling as a means of conveying lessons to her young son, such as creative problem-solving and teamwork. It gave birth to the 2 distinct personalities of Popcorn and Persimmon. “We are constantly learning how to work together with others despite our opposite ways of thinking,” she recognized. “There is never just one creative approach or solution to a problem. We have to learn to work together, and that’s exactly what [Popcorn and Persimmon] do.” The story resonated with Ms. MacLaren’s granddaughters, though “Grandma Day Day” notes it could be because of the colorful illustrations rather than the lessons the story teaches. Megan has become particularly fascinated with the drawing of a special tree that grows in Glum, capable of in-

stantly regenerating fruit once it’s picked. The illustration of the tree is laden with bananas, pineapple, grapes and bowls brimming with fresh produce. “She started thinking that maybe she would like to grow a tree that would give me back whatever she picked off,” Ms. MacLaren smiled. Megan isn’t the only 7-year-old with an interest in the magical trees and telepathic dogs of Ms. MacLaren’s narrative. The Claremont author has found the most gratification in receiving feedback from other young readers engrossed with the adventure of her redheaded twins. “It’s very humbling,” she said. She finds it equally satisfying to share in the success. “Being able to do this with my girlfriends, that was something. Beyond the fact that we’ve known each other for over 50 years and we are still so close is this creative, collaborative effort,” Ms. MacLaren said. “It was really great. I wish they could be here.” For more on Ms. MacLaren and The Adventures of Popcorn and Persimmon, or to get your hands on a copy of the book, email the author at zmacone@gmail.com.

Retired teacher remembers beauty queen past
Ruth Bobo has grabbed local headlines in recent months for being at the center of the ongoing Save Mrs. Bobo campaign, a grassroots effort to raise money to help the retired Claremont High School English teacher stay in her home in the face of mounting health bills. This June, she garnered more publicity when an image of her as a teenaged beauty queen gracing the cover of the 1953 edition of Realite—then the name of the trade publication for Aiken Electric Cooperative—ran on page 5 of the utility company’s South Carolina Living. The text for the original article on Mrs. Bobo, who was crowned as Miss Aiken Co-op, read: ‘The choice was difficult, but [she was] the winner by a nose—and a very attractive nose it was, being the property of Ruth Ann Moultrie of New Ellenton.”

In a recent interview, Mrs. Bobo told the editors of South Carolina Living that winning the title gave her confidence as she continued through Aikens High School in Moulton, Alabama. There, she was crowned queen of Sadie Hawkins and 10th grade May Queen and went on to be a majorette. The blast to the past was refreshing for Mrs. Bobo.

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. Notice is hereby given that RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A., as duly appointed trustee pursuant to the Deed of Trust executed by ZSA ZSA M. HILL, AN UNMARRIED WOMAN AND MICHELLE GALLARDO, A SINGLE WOMAN, AS TENANTS IN COMMON, EACH AS TO AN UNDIVIDED 50% INTEREST, dated 12/19/2006 and recorded 12/29/2006, as Instrument No. 20062898156, in Book N/A, Page N/A, of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of Los Angeles County, State of California, will sell on 09/20/2013 at 11:00AM, By the fountain located at 400 Civic Center Plaza, Pomona, CA 91766 at public auction, to the highest bidder for cash or check as described below, payable in full at time of sale, all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust, in the property situated in said County and State and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 463 NOTRE DAME ROAD, CLAREMONT, CA, 91711. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid balance with interest thereon of the obligation secured by the property to be sold plus reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $358,462.39. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept cashier's checks drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state. Said sale will be made, in an ''AS IS'' condition, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession or encumbrances, to satisfy the indebtedness secured by said Deed of Trust, advances thereunder, with interest as provided, and the unpaid principal of the Note secured by said Deed of Trust with interest thereon as provided in said Note, plus fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. 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 a 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 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 1-800-281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www.recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case TS No. 11-0137055. 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.

R&B legend Big Jay McNeely will bring his sax stylings to Hip Kitty
Legendary rhythm and blues saxophonist Big Jay McNeely will perform at the Claremont supper club and lounge Hip Kitty Jazz and Fondue on Saturday, August 24 at 8 p.m. Big Jay scored his first Billboard hit in 1949 with an instrumental titled “The Deacon’s Hop” and, on the strength of his flamboyant “honking” style, remained popular throughout the 1950s and early 1960s. The honkers—among whom Big Jay was considered the most colorful—were known for their raucous stage antics and expressive, exhibitionist style of playing. They overblew their saxophones and often hit on the same note over and over, much like a black Southern preacher, until their audiences were mesmerized. Big Jay recorded countless tunes for the Aladdin, Exclusive, Federal, Imperial, Swingin’ and Vee-Jay labels. In the early to mid-50s, Big Jay added vocal groups to his act, beginning with Four Dots & Dash. Big Jay also worked extensively with The Hollywood Flames, The Penguins and The Medallions up and down the West Coast. In 1955-56, he shared the stage with the Clovers, the Harptones, Bill Haley and His Comets, the Moonglows, Little Richard and others. He scored his biggest hit in 1959 with the R&B ballad “There is Something on Your Mind,” featuring Sonny Walker on vocals, which stayed on the R&B charts for 6 months. Big Jay retired for 20 years, but he returned to the stage in 1983. In 1987, he played in a blues jam with R&B superstars like B.B. King, Robert Cray, Etta James, Albert King and Junior Wells on the internationally-televised Grammy Awards. Big Jay has since been inducted into The Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame. His original tenor sax is enshrined in the Experience Music Project in Seattle. Also taking the stage for a night of music lasting to midnight is the Hollywood Combo. There is a $5 cover charge for the show. A $10/hour per person food minimum is required for booth seating. The show is for guests age 21 and older. Hip Kitty is located in the Claremont Packing House at 502 W. First St. For information, call 447-6700 or visit www.hipkittyjazz.com.

On Wednesday, August 28 at 7:30 p.m., A Night In Rio features Mr. Ryan accompanied by some of the area’s finest musicians, singers and Brazilian dancers performing music and dance in a smooth bossa nova and energetic samba style expressing the romantic, passionate music of Rio de Janeiro.

Sharing the stage with Mr. Ryan will be Hai Muradian, flute and vocals; Ken Soderlund, guitar; Bryan Brock, percussion; Garrett Wolfe, bass; and Reed Gratz and Martie Echito on keyboards.

come known as the “California Style” of watercolor painting. As the 1920s drew to a close and throughout the 1930s, Mr. Dike began to master the art of translating the effects of light and color into watercolor. In those early years, his fascination with this work led the rather shy and private artist on a journey throughout the United States and Europe. With more than 50 paintings, the exhibition tells the story of these years in detail. Visitors will view his impressions of life in New York in the late 1920s and his studies at the Arts Students League; his work in Europe, including his time at the American Academy of Art at Fontainebleau; and his travels afterwards. Paintings created after his return from his travels overseas will also be on display, as he continued his exploration of light and color by recording street scenes, architecture and landscapes in southern California and the Southwest. Opening reception: Saturday, September 14 from 7 to 9 p.m., featuring live music and light refreshments. Closing reception: Sunday, October 13, featuring a watercolor demonstration.

In describing her work, Ms. McCoy says, “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, snap shots 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.”

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien.

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 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 the property itself. Placing the highest bid at 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 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) 480-5690 or visit this Internet Web site www.tacforeclosures.com/sales, using the file number assigned to this case 21653CA. 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. In addition, the borrower on the loan shall be sent a written notice if the sale has been postponed for at least ten (10) business days. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein.
