The soundtrack of our lives


Dear Editor: I was proud to have been a part of Anne Carlsons article, The Soundtrack of Our Lives, in the new COURIER Almanac, which speaks to the vitality of the music scene here in Claremont. There has been a long tradition of a vibrant and interactive musical family that has increased and prospered over the last half century. Claremont has grown, and with that, so has its ability to support and nurture the ever-expanding Claremont musical community.

Dear Editor: Typical Internet download speed in my neighborhood is 0.25 Mbps and upload speed even lower, unless I subscribe to Time Warner Cable. Yesterday, my service with Verizon was down for several hours. Thanks to regional monopolies organized, no doubt, by powerful communication company lobbyists, access to the Internet in the 21st century in portions of Claremont is disgraceful. One more indication that government is for the few. Im told telephone lines are meant only for telephone service and there is no fibreoptic cable in my area. And, as is usual with monopolies, Time Warner Cable service is costly and from complaints I have read, customer service is less than satisfactory. Verizon advised me that there is nothing they can do to improve DSL because the telephone lines are outdated. The California Public Utilities Commission doesnt just control our water rates; members de-

cide, together with the FCC, who among us gets to purchase decent telephone service. Shouldnt municipalities be responsible for laying fibreoptic cable as an infrastructure investment to be repaid by user taxes collected by phone companies, all of which will offer competitive pricing and service? Europe is way ahead of the US in implementing new communications technology. In the UK, there are no regional monopolies and I am told fiberoptic service is available from numerous phone companies. Although I dont know whether it is nationwide, I do know that towns much smaller and poorer than Claremont are wired. Additionally, thanks to local competition, the cost is only $15 a month and bundles arent required to access the Internet at this price. The United States should be at the forefront in implementing new technology, but it wont happen unless the government breaks up these special interest arrangements. In your dreamsnothing will improve unless citizens get riled up enough to force change. Enid Eckert

Its yes on Ojai water!


Dear Editor: On August 27, voters in Ojai, by an 87 percent margin, chose to tax their property to buy out Golden State Water Company. Ojai is a small town of about 7,500 east of Ventura. Under GSWC, their water rates are over twice those in nearby cities. Ojai residents were letting their yards go brown. They just couldnt take it anymore. The campaign against the takeover sounds very familiar: articles about a water

grab; warnings about how much more rates would go up if we have a takeover. We heard the same thing about Felton, another small town that bought out their private water system. GSWC says they were sorry they did, but a quick check on the Internet shows thats not so. Although it costs a typical water user about $600 a year to pay for the takeover, there was an actual net saving of $400 per year. Felton residents are pleased with the outcome. Ojai gets almost all its water from local wells. That water costs much less than water that must be imported. Here in Claremont, imported water is about 5times as expensive as well water, and a third to a half of our water is imported. Yet typical Claremont water bills for the same amount of usage are lower than in Ojai. No wonder Ojai revolted. But our water is no bargain. Our high Claremont rates are close to twice those in neighboring La Verne, and have more than doubled in the last 5 years. Claremont Outrage rose up to protest. Our city council is negotiating a takeover from GSWC. Will Claremont follow in Ojais footsteps? We should know before long.

Owner yearns to find 4-legged family member

ondays downpour and 90-degree heat posed no obstacle for Claremont resident David Hunter, who kept vigil in the handicap parking spot outside the Stater Bros. market at Towne Avenue and Foothill Boulevard. The weather is the last thing concerning Mr. Hunter, who has become a regular fixture outside the local grocery store as part of a pilgrimage to find his lost pup Rusty, a 9-year-old Brittany Spaniel. To date, he has spent 55 hours passing out flyers to grocery store patrons.
Rusty went missing last Saturday afternoon, August 17. She was last seen in the garage of Mr. Hunters home in the 1000 block of Raymond Avenue. The diligent pet owner hasnt been idle since.

Assemblyman keeps close eye on key bills

LLANUSA CAMPAIGN KICKOFF PARTY: The Committee to Elect Steven Llanusa will host a campaign kickoff party at the Claremont Forum, 586 W. First St., to introduce Mr. Llanusa to the community. This family-friendly event will include refreshments, drinks and activities for kids. Sunday, September 8 at 2 p.m. Info: 6258558 or electllanusa@yahoo.com. LLANUSA STUDENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE BREAKFAST: Pupils and Pancakes at Oakmont Elementary School on Saturday, September 14 at 10 a.m. All students, parents and community members are invited to share their ideas with students and candidate Steven Llanusa.

ith the legislative session winding down, local assembly members are racing the clock to ensure all bills are approved by the September 13 deadline, including local Assemblymember Chris Holden.
Two bills spearheaded by the local legislator await signatures from Governor Jerry Brown after receiving the approval of the State Assembly earlier this week. AB 143, the Military Use Tax Exemption, would give active duty service members a tax break on personal property purchased

when they are transferred to California. AB 201 aims to make the Small Business Loan Guarantee program more accessible and user-friendly. With the passage of this bill, the Office of Small Business Advocates will be required to include information on its website about the Small Business Loan Guarantee programs (SBLGP) loan guarantees, direct lending, surety bond guarantees and disaster loans. Both bills were passed unanimously. As AB 143 and AB 201 await approval, Governor Jerry Brown has already signed into law Mr. Holdens bill relating to funding for domestic violence shelters. AB 139, which becomes effective

January 1, 2014, clears up a technicality in order to provide more funds for local domestic violence shelters. The bill stipulates that those convicted of domestic violence must pay a minimum $500 feenot a fine after they are granted probation. Mr. Holden hopes this will clear up confusion over the $500 payment and ensure funding for local domestic violence programs. Mr. Holdens staff keeps local office hours every third Tuesday of the month at Claremont City Hall in the Citrus Room from 2 to 4 p.m. His district office is located at 600 N. Rosemead Blvd., Suite 117, Pasadena. For information, call (626) 351-1917.

Release of serial rapist imminent; Supreme Court denies review

he California Supreme Court will not stop the imminent release of Christopher Evans Hubbart, a former Claremont resident who has admitted to raping more than 40 women.

The Supreme Court Wednesday denied an appeal filed by District Attorney Jackie Lacey on behalf of Los Angeles County to reconsider the conditional release of Mr. Hubbart. In a statement, Ms. Lacy admitted she had worked every possible angle to block the release of Mr. Hubbart, 62, into Los Angeles County. She says she will now focus her efforts on working with local law enforcement to make sure all terms and conditions of Hubbarts release from custody are strictly enforced. Mr. Hubbarts release from Coalinga State Hospital, believed to be sometime this November, is conditional

upon 24-hour surveillance with a GPS ankle bracelet, random drug and polygraph tests as well as a strict curfew. In May, Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Gilbert T. Brown determined that Mr. Hubbarts ability to pass a psychological exam meant he would not be a danger to others due to his diagnosed mental disorder while under the supervision and treatment in the community. The convicted rapist has failed previous psychological exams. The news caused uproar across the county, prompting the District Attorney to file a writ with the Sixth District Court of Appeals. The writ, however, was denied in July. Ms. Lacey then turned to the Supreme Court, which has now followed suit with the lower court. Mr. Hubbartwho has been described by a state official as uncontrollably compulsivehas spent the

past 30 years in prison and state mental hospitals. He was first arrested in 1972 in connection with a series of rapes in Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties. In 1982, Mr. Hubbart returned to confinement, convicted of rape with force, oral copulation with force and 5 counts of burglary. Roughly 2 weeks after his parole, he returned to Vacaville in 1990 for false imprisonment. His parole was again cut short a few years later when he failed a routine psychological exam. He has remained in prison since 1994, repeatedly failing psychological examinations. But after completing another treatment program last year, Mr. Hubbart was able to pass the test and has asked to be released. It is unknown where in the county they will release Mr. Hubbart. Claremont officials have filed a letter of opposition against Mr. Hubbarts release to Claremont.

POLICE BLOTTER
Thursday, August 22 Police are looking for hikers who may have witnessed an act of violence between a man and a woman at the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park on Thursday morning. Around 9:50 a.m., the woman was attacked by her boyfriend just outside the park after she attempted to end her relationship with him, according to Lt. Mike Ciszek. The woman alleges he tried to block her path to keep her from leaving and then head-butted her in the nose. Any information on this attack should be reported to the Claremont Police Department at 399-5420. Friday, August 23 A Vons grocery story patron returned to the car late Friday afternoon with groceries in hand, but minus a MacBook computer. The laptop, left on the rear passenger seat, was stolen out of the locked vehicle. The rear passenger window had been left open about 6 inches, according to police. Those 6 inches cost the patron $1,200. Saturday, August 24 The party ended early for a group of minors hanging out at Mountain View Elementary School early Saturday morning. Their yelling not only caught the attention of annoyed neighbors trying to sleep, but also that of local police. One of the group, a 17-year-old female, was found to be under the influence of alcohol, and was cited and released to her parents. **** An arrest for driving unlicensed and under the influence was only the beginning of troubles for 33-year-old Alfredo Castro-Alaman of Baldwin Park. It was relatively smooth sailing for Mr. CastroAlaman until he arrived at the jail, at which time he became combative. Mr. Castro-Alaman began pulling away from the officer and did not stop fighting even when being brought to the floor. Police were eventually able to get him into the holding cell, at which time Mr. CastroAlaman challenged the officer to a fight. The challenge was met with an additional charge of resisting arrest.

As elections near, residency of longtime Citrus trustee questioned

wo seats are open in the November 5 election for the Citrus Community College District Governing Board, those of longtime board members Gary L. Woods and Edward C. Ortell. Both incumbents are running for another term, a bid thatbetween brisk competition from 4 candidates and accusations that he is not a resident of the district he representsmay prove contentious for Mr. Woods.
Mr. Woods, who has represented Azusa and portions of Duarte on the board since 1982, has long listed as his primary residence a one-bedroom apartment on Rockvale Avenue in Azusa. However, Citrus College Faculty Association President John Fincher questioned the legitimacy of that claim at the March 19 meeting of the Citrus College board of trustees. Mr. Fincher told the board that earlier in the year, the faculty association received a letter from a longtime Azusa post office employee asserting that during the many years he delivered mail to Mr. Woods Azusa address, the trustees mail box would fill up for weeks at a time and then suddenly be cleared out. When he questioned the apartment manager, the letter carrier said he was told the trustee only used the apartment when he would work late and didnt want to drive home. Mr. Fincher told the board its curious that Mr. Woods, whose income includes a career as an attorney as well as a position as a Pasadena City College
Senior Alisha Ryczek paints a Native American dreamcatcher on her parking spot at Claremont High School. For the last 4 years, the ASB office has held a fundraiser by raffling off exclusive parking spots to CHS seniors. The spots cost $30 on top of the $45 for a standard parking permit, and the lucky students can then custom-paint their spots. This year, 62 parking spaces were awarded among 79 applicants.

professor, would choose to reside in a one-bedroom rental, in a senior citizen complex in a predominantly fixed income area. He went on to note that the California Teachers Association, the parent organizaCOMMUNITY tion for the colCOLLEGE leges faculty association, had undertaken an investigation regarding the matter. We now know that [Mr. Woods] owns an office building and a residence in Pasadena. We also know that in the past couple of years, he purchased another residence, this time a 2,200square-foot $1.1 million view home high above Sierra Madre, Mr. Fincher related. Virtually every morning, he leaves the Sierra Madre residence at approximately 6:50 a.m. At the end of his day, he drives back up and backs into his driveway, then goes inside to retire for the evening. Mr. Woods has denied these allegations, a position he reasserted in a phone interview with the COURIER on Monday. Ive been a resident there for 32 years. Ive been a registered voter there for 32 years, he said. Ive always gotten everything at my address in Azusa. All my documents go there: my drivers license, bank statements, taxes, utility billsno different than anyone who lives in a domicile. Mr. Fincher suggested that board members corroborate the story of Mr. Woods alleged Sierra Madre residency themselves by visiting www.firegary woods.com. This website purports to have photographic and video evidence of Mr. Woods Sierra Madre residency, as well as the aforementioned letter from the postal carrier and a deed showing that Mr. Woods co-owns the property in Sierra Madre. After that, he advised, the board should retain legal

council and take steps to vacate the Azusa position and begin the process to appoint a successor. Any elected official is allowed to have multiple residences, Mr. Fincher noted, but under California Elections Code Section 349, if you run for an office you must have your domicile or primary residence in the area you are representing. The saga continues At the April 2 meeting of the Citrus College Board of Trustees, trustees Joanne Montgomery and Patricia Rasmussen moved the that board obtain legal council regarding the residency concerns presented by Mr. Fincher, a motion unanimously approved by the board. Soon after, the board contracted with Chris Keeler, a partner at the Fagan, Friedman & Fulfrost law firm. At the May 7 board meeting, it was moved that the board form an ad-hoc advisory committee consisting of Board President Sue Keith, who represents Claremont and portions of Pomona and La Verne, and Patricia Rasmussen, representing Glendora and portions of San Dimas. The purpose of the committee, which would cease to exist on July 30, would be to consider the issue of residency of Trustee Gary L. Woods, gather facts and prepare a report to the Board of Trustees, which may include a recommendation for action. The board approved the motion 3-2, with Mr. Woods and Mr. Ortell casting the dissenting votes. At their July 13 meeting, the board voted 3-2 to extend the ad-hoc committee, through September 30. Legal counsel has not completed several tasks necessary for the report, Ms. Keith explained. The subcommittees term should be extended to allow for completion of fact-gathering and

analysis, and the preparation of a thorough, well-reasoned report. Mr. Woods, along with Mr. Ortell, again cast a dissenting vote and his attorney, George Yin of the Kaufman Legal Group, objected to the formation and continuation of the ad-hoc committee, citing transparency concerns. He argued that the proper procedure for addressing residency concerns is through the California Attorney Generals Office, via a legal proceeding called quo warranto, during which an individuals right to hold an office is challenged. To engage in other non-legally prescribed proceedings opens the district up to potential lawsuits and ridicule, Mr. Yin warned. The residents of the district and Mr. Woods deserve better. The residency question is pending as the November election looms and as the next meeting of the board of trustees, set for September 10 at 4:15 p.m., nears. At the August 18 board meeting, Mr. Keeler said he had not received the documentation he requested from Mr. Yin on August 5 proving Mr. Woods Azusa residency. Im hoping that at the September board meeting, the ad-hoc committee will be able to make a report to the board and may have a recommendation, Ms. Keith said. In the meantime, Mr. Woods said he is focusing on the upcoming election rather than considering litigation. He considers the allegations of his detractors, which have found their way into a number of articles in the San Gabriel Valley Tribune and affiliated newspapers, to constitute a smear campaign. Theyre trying to try me in the press rather than in the courts, Mr. Woods said.

Slipping through the cracks of the community


by John Pixley

omeone in the bowels of the bureaucracy made certain assumptions and decisions Im not saying they werent made in good faith, said Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky. The decisions made apparently suggested they did not have the authority.... Or, as Mark Ridley-Thomas, the chairman of the board of supervisors, put it, We want to make sure we dont trip over our own feet here. The county supervisors were talking earlier this month about the need to review their authority over taxpayer-funded rehabilitation clinics and to end payments to clinic operators who break the law. They unanimously voted to have this review and to require the development of safeguards to ensure that parolees, troubled youths and parents who are dealing with alcohol or drug abuse are not referred to clinics whose contracts have been suspended because This happened after a July report by CNN and the Center for Investigative Reporting revealed widespread impropriety by California clinic operators providing substance-abuse to the poor. Such programs are funded with federal and state money through contracts awarded through the counties. Many of the abuses, including billing for nonexisting clients, took place in LA County, the states most populous, where in the fiscal year that ended June 30, approximately $99.5 million was paid to 143 drug and alcohol rehabilitation firms serving 30,000 people. Really? Shouldnt the board of supervisorswhich supervises, after allalready have the authority and power to supervise the firms it does business with and the ability to fire them if they are bad, much less criminal? Shouldnt they already not send people, especially poor, vulnerable people, to businesses that are known to be fraudulent? Clearly, something (like common sense) got lost in the bowels of the bureaucracy. This sure is a case where people trip over our own feet. Or heres another way to say whats going on: The right hand does not know what the left hand is doing. This doesnt make things any better for Christopher Hubbart, who I wrote about several weeks ago. It does-

observer
nt make us feel any better about him. Christopher Hubbart is the notorious serial rapist, known as the pillowcase rapist, having admittedly raped over 40 women in California. He once lived with his parents in Claremont and was recently ordered freed from a prison hospital where he has been kept for nearly 20 yearsafter being in and out of prison for about 20 years. Despite the fact that doctors say it is now safe to release the 62-year-old, and that Mr. Hubbart will be heavily supervised and no longer has ties to Claremont, numerous officials, including in Claremont, are fighting this release, at least in this county. Not helping is that next to the article in the Los Angeles Times about the board of supervisors, was an article revealing that the person of interest in a murder case is a released high-risk sex offender who had tampered with his GPS monitoring device. The article stated that the body of Sandra Coke, a federal investigator and Oakland resident who had been missing, was discovered and that the last person to be seen with her alive was Randy Alana, a parolee listed in the states Megans Law database with convictions for rape, rape in concert with force or violence, kidnapping with intent to commit a sex offense and oral copulation. According to the article, the database noted that Mr. Alana had been in violation of registration requirements since June 11, there was a warrant for his arrest August 6 for failure to participate in the monitoring program and, although an alarm sounds when a GPS device is tampered with, it was unclear when Mr. Alana tampered with his device and what parole officers knew about his whereabouts. The article also noted that mr. Alana and Ms. Coke dated briefly 2 decades ago and that he had recently contacted her.

Another article in the Times a few days later revealed that Mr. Alana had been specifically ordered to stay away from Ms. Coke. Again, evidently, things got lost somewhere in the bowels of the bureaucracy, and there was plenty of trip[ping] over our own feet, leaving a trail of questions. Why wasnt Mr. Alana searched for when he failed to renew his database registration on June 11? If an alarm goes off when the GPS device is tampered with, why is it unclear when Mr. Alana tampered with his? If someone reported seeing Mr. Alana with Ms. Coke before she was reported missing, why wasnt there an all-out search then? How much of an effort was made to find Mr. Alana after the August 6 arrest warrant? With an active restraining order, why wasnt anything done when Mr. Alana recently contacted Ms. Coke ? What was left in this case, besides too few answers, was a murdered woman. A woman known for her good cheer, easy laugh and generous hugs, who will be remembered and missed as an unusually kind, generous and big-hearted person by her family and friends. No wonder we are afraid of Christopher Hubbart living nearby, even with heavy supervision, including a GPS monitoring device. No wonder we would rather he was gone, rather not deal with this man who has been punished and who clearly is troubled and needs help. Is there a way, with our many resources, for Christopher Hubbart to have the opportunity to live out in the community, saving taxpayer funds, and for us to be safe? How can we be sure that, while living among us, he gets the help he so badly needs and that we are not in danger? It is so much easier to let him and the homeless, the addicted, the mentally ill, the abandoned go somewhere else, somewhere in the bowels of the bureaucracy. It is so much easier not to reach out, not to make the effort and use the resources. It is so much easier to cry and rant when we trip over our own feet with outrageous and tragic results.

Once upon a time... What is that?

Making our cities models of compassion


by Rev. Jan Chase of Unity Church of Pomona, member of the Claremont Interfaith Council

hen Linda arrived at the community laundry room of her mobile home park, her friends were standing along the street holding their baskets of dirty clothes. When she asked why they werent already in the room, they answered, Youll see! Linda passed them by and entered the laundry room to find only one other person in there. From her hijab, it was clear that she was a Muslim woman. Linda was delighted, for only the day before a Muslim speaker had given the sermon at Unity Church of Pomona. Dr. Ahmed Soboh, a local Muslim leader (Imam) and Pomona dentist, had spoken about the Five Pillars of Islam that are the foundation of Muslim life. Linda had learned the following about the Islamic religion: 1) Faith statement: There is none worthy of worship except God, and Muhammad is a messenger of God. 2) Prayers: Performed 5 times every day. 3) Almsgiving: Based on the Islamic principle that everything belongs to God. 4) Self-purification through fasting: Every year in the month of Ramadan, all able Muslims fast from dawn until sundown, abstaining from food, drink, negative thinking and sexual relations. They also perform many charitable deeds from the compassion generated by fasting.

5) Pilgrimage: Those who are able perform a spiritual pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in their lifetime. On hearing about these spiritual practices required for a good Muslim, Lindas fear of differences dissolved and was replaced with respect and curiosity. So when she entered the laundry room, she found it easy to speak warmly and respectfully, welcoming the other woman. She mentioned that she knew and respected the prayerful life that Muslims lead; her curiosity led her to say that although she would not be able to see the womans hair, she would like to know what color it was. At this point, the stranger broke down, sharing that she had been in this mobile home park for 2 weeks and that no one had spoken to her in all that time. She and Linda then shared a compassionate hug as the community looked on. Living in fear is a terrible thing for everyone: It separates, isolates and perpetuates stress-inducing stereotypes. Once people come together to learn about each other, fears dissolve and powerful, meaningful, compassionate relationships can be built. That is what the Interfaith Movement is all about. Los Angeles County is

Inter-Faithfully SPEAKING

said to be the most religiously diverse place in the entire world. We have the opportunity to be a model for how diversity can be used to educate and elevate communities into cities of compassion. Author, researcher and interfaith activist Karen Armstrong has created a Charter for Compassion, won in 2008 at a TED conference. She urges all men and womento restore compassion to the center of morality and religion; to return to the ancient principle that any interpretation of scripture that breeds violence, hatred or disdain is illegitimate; to ensure that youth are given accurate and respectful information about other traditions, religions and cultures; to encourage a positive appreciation of cultural and religious diversity; and to cultivate an informed empathy with the suffering of all human beingseven those regarded as enemies. More on Ms. Armstrongs project can be found at www.charterforcompassion.org. Acknowledging that compassion is not only at the core of all religious traditions, but essential to human relationships and to a fulfilled humanitythe path to enlightenment, and indispensable to the creation of a just economy and a peaceful global community, this Charter of Compassion encourages us to transcend selfishness and make compassion a clear, luminous and dynamic force in our polarized world.

A number of events are lining up to assist us in this lofty endeavor as part of our local 11 Days of Global Unity and Season of Interfaith Celebration. Join us for any of the following major events: Sunday, September 15 at 3:30 p.m. 5th Annual Interfaith Walk for Peace: Many Faiths, One Future. Begins at St. Ambrose Episcopal Church, 830 W. Bonita Ave., stops at Temple Beth Israel, 3033 N. Towne Ave., Pomonaa t 4:45 p.m. then continues to City of Knowledge Islamic School, Foothill and Garey in Pomona at 5:30 p.m. The walk is sponsored by the Claremont Interfaith Working Group for Mideast Peace. For information, visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ ClaremontInterfaithWG. (Those unable to walk comfortably are welcome to drive between locations. Limited transportation after the rally is available back to St. Ambrose.) Sunday, September 29 at 4 p.m. Sacred Sounds V: 5th Annual Interfaith Concert Celebrating the Divine at Temple Beth Israel, 33033 N. Towne Ave., Pomona. During these opportunities to meet those of different religions, we can build relationships that allow us to create cities and communities of compassion. There is now a global movement to have cities sign the Charter of Compassion and even compete through Compassion Games to be called the most Compassionate City in the world. Lets work together to make our cities models of compassion as we come to understand more and more deeply the concept of Survival of the Kindest.

Ruth Lubarsky
Ruth Lubarsky (nee Singer), a steadfast member of the Jewish community of the Pomona Valley for nearly 5 decades, died at her home on August 20, 2013.She was 91. Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1921 to immigrant parents and raised in New York City, Mrs. Lubarsky was the third of 7 children and the only one to venture west.She began high school at the age of 12 but, because college was out of the question in the middle of the Great Depression, she trained as a legal secretary, a skill that enabled her to help her husband pursue his education and send their 3 children to college. She married Robert Lubarsky in 1946, joining the great post-war rush into family life. Grateful for the oppor-

OBITUARIES

Beloved mother, advocate of kindness


tunities afforded by the GI Bill, they moved first to Stillwater, Oklahoma where Mr. Lubarsky completed undergraduate studies at Oklahoma A&M and then to Los Angeles where he completed his PhD in microbiology at UCLA, living in Veterans Villages on both campuses. The Lubarskys joined a small group of transplanted New Yorkers in founding the Citrus Valley Jewish Community Center in West Covina.In 1964, they moved to Upland and became active members first of Temple Shalom of Ontario and then of Temple Beth Israel of Pomona. In 1970, Mrs. Lubarsky went to work as a clerk-typist at the California Institution for Women, working there until her retirement in 1987. Mr. Lubarsky taught for 17 years at Chaffey Community College, dying unexpectedly in 1974. From her own life experiences and her sustained reading of the literature of suffering, Mrs. Lubarskys guiding principle was that every person should do what they can to improve the world.She believed that people should have the chance to make something of themselves,with one caveat:If what you made of yourself was not an ethical person, dont bother. Mrs. Lubarsky was preceded in death by her husband Robert and a son, Bruce.She is survived by her daughter, Marilyn Lubarsky of Claremont; by her daughter and son-in-law, Sandra Lubarsky and Marcus Ford of Boone, North Carolina; by her son and daughter-in-law, Rabbi Jonathan Singer and Rabbi Beth Singer of San Francisco; by her grandchildren, Aaron and Daniel Lubarsky-Ford and Rena, Jenny and Robert Singer; by 5 siblings; by 12 nieces and nephews, and by many dear friends. A memorial service and funeral were held at Mt. Sinai Memorial Park, Hollywood Hills.Contributions in Ruth Lubarskys memory may be made to the General Fund of Temple Beth Israel, Pomona or to the Robert Lubarsky Memorial Scholarship at Chaffey College.

I have a dream speech comes full circle


by Joe Farrell

s we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther Kings I Have a Dream speech, I have come full circle, because my earliest memory at age 4-and a-half is that of my mother and my grandfatherher fatherarguing over whether she could take her son to Washington to attend the March.
I actually recall my grandfather angrily telling my mother she was responsible for a child and that she could do no such thing. Taking a child to what was generally perceived was going to become a riot was not something responsible, single, white mothers did in 1963. But it was something that people with a sense of justice did, people who understood what being an American meant: the obligation to ensure that everyone

has the same chance to step up. Dr. Kings legacy matches those of the Founders; indeed, his legacy shines with Jefferson, Franklin, Adams and Washington. Dr. Kings words, which still ring loud for me today, is that historic phrase: I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Sadly, many today believe that Dr. Kings message calls for equality of outcome, rather than equality of opportunity. Reading Dr. Kings entire speech inspires Americans of all faiths, of all colors and creeds, to rally behind the call for freedom, together with the demand for legal equality. It asked for nothing material, but for a consecration of spirit and a commitment to the Golden Rule. If we truly honor Dr. Kings legacy, we need to stop trying to make everyone the same, either in prosperity or poverty, in education or ignorance, in thought and action, in social status or feigned concern

VIEWPOINT
for our fellow man. True tolerance of others, and true respect for the rights and beliefs of everyone, leads us to the path of equality of opportunity while leaving to the individual the task of self-respect and outcome. The problems that Socialism brings to our shores, with all its beneficent forms masquerading as social justice, creates more problems than opening the public treasury to cure economic disparity can ever cure. Those who become wealthy through the sweat of their brow, be it the work of their muscles or their minds, have a great deal of pride about their success. They have shared their success with others either through employing them, hiring them to do a job as a contractor, or by donating time, talent or treasure for the greater good. Giving to others from the public treasury to ensure that the fruits of economic success are equalized

diminishes the work done to create wealth and economic differentiation. Such is not equality of opportunity, but the false equality of result. Dr. King did not march on Washington, and did not dream, to ensure that negroes had the right to a wireless phone, the compelled diversity of living in Beverly Hills or a flat-screen television. His goal was more meaningful: to create a nation where everyone had the same legal right to the same opportunity to succeed. Changing that goal to equality of economic result tarnishes his legacy and makes us guardians of a balance sheet instead of grand ideas. Dr. Kings vision drove a single mother to want to take her 4-year-old son to what everyone believed would be a dangerous protest in our nations capital, to join with other Americans to demand that people of color be granted the simple human right of equality of opportunity; she would not have traveled 250 miles to ensure that people of color had a television.

Entering kindergarten becomes nostalgic for Claremont family

he first day of kindergarten can be a memory-stirring experience. Parents are brought back to their earliest school days, even as they strive to give their child a good start on theirs.
For the family of 5-year-old Sophia Sink, who had her first day of school on Monday, this feeling of dj vu was even more acute. Sophia is now a student at Condit Elementary in Claremont, the same school where her mother Kim and grandmother Katie Thompson attended elementary school. Whats more, Ms. Thompson teaches kindergarten right next door to Sophias new home room, in the same room where her daughters first class was stationed. Its amazing! Ms. Thompson exclaimed. It seems like yesterday I was bringing Kim to kindergarten here and it seems like a little longer when I went to school here. Now, shell be bringing her little girl. Where does the time fly? Ms. Sinkwho took the day off from her job as a kindergarten teacher in Diamond Bar to walk Sophia to school on her first dayfelt the strongest sense of nostalgia during a meet-and-greet held after Sophia and her peers were safely ensconced in their classrooms. We sat in the multi-purpose room and the smell of the room took me back to all of the things we did there, Ms. Sink said. I wasnt expecting that. Its no coincidence that these 3 generations of Claremont women are all Condit Condors. For this family, its the neighborhood school. When Ms. Thompson was 9, her family moved to

COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff Three generations of Condit Condors: Sophia Sink, who began kindergarten on Wednesday, her mother Kim Sink, who attended Condit Elementary School in the 1980s, and Ms. Sinks mother Katie Thompson, who teaches at Condit and was a student beginning in 1959.

Claremont, buying a house on Reed Drive, an area that feeds into Condit. When she grew up, she raised her 2 daughters, Ms. Sink and her sister Julie, on Simmons Court, also Condit territory. Now, Ms. Sink lives in a house on Wellesley Drive, a short walk from Condit, along with her husband James, Sophia and her younger brother Dominic, 3. Mr. Sink is likewise a product of Claremont schools, although he went to Sycamore. Both he and his wife went to El Roble Intermediate and graduated

from Claremont High School. As a result, Ms. Sink saw several of her old schoolmates dropping their kids off on Monday, which made her feel like she was amid a family reunited. Everyone at Condit always makes you feel welcome. If youre a new family, they want to know who you are, Ms. Sink said. Ms. Thompson concurs that the family atmosphere is one of the schools strongest points. Its such a family, she said. Many of our teachers, at least half, have been

parents there. I have met a lot of parents in my classroom who have become good friends. And [principal] Christine Malally is absolutely amazing. She does a lot to keep everyones spirits up. Sophia, a diminutive brunette, was in good spirits on Wednesday as she arrived at school sporting blue Converse tennis shoes, a tomboyish Spiderman backpack and a girlish bow in her hair. She has a special penchant for superTHREES A CHARM continues on the next page

heroes, especially Captain America, because of the amazing feats they can perform. The way she took her first day of kindergarten in stride is a feat in itself. My first day was good, she said later that evening. My teacher was nice and I liked some of the other kids. Perhaps the ease of Sophias first day can be attributed to familiarity. For the past few years, whenever the Sinks have walked or biked past Condit, they have taken pains to point out the campus, known as Gammas school. Sophia was even on campus earlier in the week, helping her Gamma Thompson get her classroom ready. When you ask a kid what they did in school, it can be difficult to get

specifics. Ms. Sink makes a habit of debriefing Sophia, however, pushing for details of her daily life. So she was able to give a full account of her first-day activities. They talked about the color red, looking around the room for red-colored things, and used a red crayon to draw a red flag, red pants, Clifford the dog and red cars and trucks on a piece of paper shaped like a crayon. Condit is known for its high scores and high-achieving students, but Ms. Sinks biggest aim is a simple one. I made so many good friends while I was at Condit, she said. I hope Sophia can make great friends there, too. Sarah Torribio

Auto repair shop is marked by longevity, excellence

or nearly 53 years, Connie & Dicks Auto Service Center has been Claremonts one-stop car repair destination. Thats a long spell, but Cindy Brown, who has owned the business for 23 years along with her husband Scott, feels the business is just approaching its prime.
Last year, the Browns hired a diesel specialist, an acquisition they have been awaiting for a decade. With consumer interest in alternative fuels like biodiesel growing, the timing couldnt be better. The shop also now boasts 2 technicians who are well versed in the increasingly popular hybrid cars. Whats more, in recent years the Browns have beefed up their collection of state-of-the-art automotive equipment, including the installation of an alignment rack with a pit so they can work on the lowest-profile vehicles. Any tech who walks in and sees the shop wants to work here, Ms. Brown said. Connie & Dicks already has a scan tool allowing their technicians to communicate with the GM, Ford, Toyota and Chrysler companies as a dealership would, which means they can fix computer problems they might otherwise have to refer to a dealer. Now, they are purchasing a new high-end scan tool connecting them to the BMW, Mercedes and Mini Cooper lines, all of which are popular in Claremont. While Connie & Dicks is benefiting from new additions, there is something about the longstanding mom-and-pop that hasnt changed: Its owners commitment to going above and beyond for each customer who walks through their doors. Whether a client is looking for a complete tune-up or a basic oil change, every car gets a bumper-to-bumper inspection by a master technician. Our oil changes are like no one elses.

Mom & Pop

Claremont

COURIER photos/Steven Felschundneff Cindy Brown and her husband Scott Brown have owned Connie & Dicks Service Center in Claremont for 23 of the 53 years the auto repair shop has been in business. They have weathered some rough times recently with the recession and the governments Cash for Clunkers program. However, they remain dedicated to serving the community.

Were better than Triple-A, Ms. Brown said. Ms. Brownwho worked for 14 years in the X-ray department at Kaiser Hospitaljokingly credits her insistence on thoroughness to her medical background. A technician road tests each vehicle before and after its service, she noted. We make sure a cars not pulling and check for lights on the dash, noise and vibration, all kinds of real safety features. Technicians check every cars lights, bolts, hoses, alternators and suspension. The tires, which are removed so brakes and rotors can be checked, are inspected for wear and rotated. Fluids are not just looked at but tested before being topped off. For instance, brake fluid is inspected via a refractonomer that can detect potential moisture. If youre going 3,000, 5,000 or 10,000 miles between an oil change, you can be confident that your car has been completely looked at, and that we tested everything to the best of our ability, Ms. Brown said.

Connie & Dicks is very much a family business. The Browns youngest daughter, Sarah, is working in the office parttime while she studies X-ray technology at Chaffey College. Their older daughter, Maegan, now a cosmetologist, used to work there too. Mr. Brown was a regular presence in the shop until 2008 when he retired to work full-time with a company he helped develop, International Automotive Technician Network (iATN), which allows automotive technicians to share questions and expertise with peers across the world. The family ethos extends to customers. When a customer comes in, the first think we think of is that it could be our daughter, son, mother, brother, father, sister, grandma or grandpa, Ms. Brown said. And when they leave, just like a family member, we want to make sure theyre safe. There were challenging times The fact that Connie & Dicks is still around in an industry where there are so many roller coasters is remarkable, Ms. Brown said. It hasnt always been easy. In recent years, the shop was hit by a doublewhammy: the recession and a government program designed to help struggling Americans. In 2009, under the Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS)better known as Cash for Clunkersconsumers were encouraged to trade in their used cars and receive as much as $4,500 toward the purchase of a new, fuel-efficient car. In order to receive federal reimbursement, dealers were required to destroy a

traded-in cars engine. A typical method was to drain a cars oil, flood the engine with sodium silicate and then rev the engine until it seized. Independent automotive specialists lost the business they once gained from repairing older but still operative cars, but that wasnt the only downside. Ms. Brown feels the cars destruction constituted a shocking waste. I was upset, she said. I have customers all the timecollege students, the parents of new driversask me if I know anyone selling used cars. And people are always looking for used car parts. A better use for those unwanted cars would have been to donate them to needy families, or to recycle them for scrap, Ms. Brown said. Staying visible and competitive Shortly after the Cash for Clunkers program, Connie & Dicks was assailed by a disinformation campaign launched by an unidentified competitor, who sent their clients letters claiming the business was under new management. We had older customers coming in, saying, Cindy, what are you doing here? Ms. Brown recalled. With the help of ads in the COURIER and a campaign to promote Connie &

CONNIE & DICKS continued from the previous page

Dicks 50-year anniversary, Claremonters were reminded that the local automotive repair shop is still going strong. Unlike when the shop first opened, Connie & Dicks, which is located in the old postal annex building in Claremont, is now surrounded by an apartment complex for senior citizens. With the business no longer visible from the street, Ms. Brown takes every chance she gets to broadcast the shops existence. She is a regular fixture at Village Venture, and takes time to attend events like Claremonts inaugural Pie Festival held earlier this month. We still get people who come up and say, Ive lived here for 30 years, and I didnt know you were here, Ms. Brown said. Mr. Brown has high praise for the marketing and managerial skills of his wife, who he characterizes as a true people person. Cindy understands that the business is very complex, because youre helping to solve a wide array of challenges when it comes to servicing automobiles, he said. You have to understand how the various regulations impact the business and how to handle all of the little things

most people dont see about operating a business. Shes definitely got them under her wing. Keeping all of those balls in the air takes work. Ms. Brown is at the shop which services from 135 to 150 cars per month14 hours a day. She also serves as vice president of the Automotive Service Councils of California (ASCCA) and is active in the Claremont Chamber of Commerce, among other commitments. In her spare time, she loves hanging out with her family, which she emphasizes is her top priority. Ms. Brown is delighted by her daughters, and is always happy to relate the accomplishments of her husband. She shares that Mr. Brown, whom she met at age 18 when both were working at the Grand Prix Raceway in Montclair, has tuned the cars of some pretty notable clients. These include Arnold Schwarzeneggers Hummers, NASCAR legend Dick Guldstrands Corvettes and vehicles belonging to a number of NHRA drivers at the Irwindale Speedway. The couple lives in Fontana and though they would love to live in Claremont, Ms. Brown says, everything has gone into the business. And between Ms. Browns tireless efforts, Mr. Browns automotive acumen and their

technicians skill at handling all aspects of auto repair, its a business of which they can be proud. Our motto is We can fix it, but wed rather maintain it, Mr. Brown said. Connie & Dicks Auto Service Center, an AAA approved full-service automotive

Contest winner gets life-changing break as fashion model

s students head to the mall for back-to-school shopping, they will be greeted by a familiar face on American Eagle Outfitters storefront. Claremont resident Quinci Smith, 18, is no longer just the mild-mannered 2013 Claremont High School graduate and tennis player classmates and teachers have come to know. Now she is also the poster child for American Eagles national Back to School campaign, her face plastered on storefronts, in television commercials and across a spread in a recent issue of Seventeen Magazine. While a little overwhelmed by the sudden attention, and by seeing her face on display at the local shopping malls, Ms.Smith is taking her newfound recognition in stride with the help of family and friends. They are always there to encourage me to try new things and support me in what I do, Ms. Smith said. They help inspire me. Her modeling break came just months before graduation day, when Ms. Smith was selected as a finalist for the clothing companys Project Live Your Life contest. Tens of thousands of young hopefuls posted pictures along with their inspiration on the American Eagle website as part of the contest, with their peers voting for the top finalists. Only 12 were selected, and Ms. Smith was among them. She was at school when she received the news. She texted me, Mom, I got it! her mother Renee Smith recalls. When she got home, she couldnt stop smiling. She may have the trim supermodel physique, but modeling was never on the young athletes mind.

Speech therapy has helped her and, at her moms urging, she continued to work through the complications to pursue athletics, joining her schools track team and becoming part of Claremont High Schools CIF-winning tennis team. We never put the idea in her head that she couldnt do anything, her mom said. Shes never let it hold her back. Managing the changes The last few months have been a whirlwind for Ms. Smith, characterized by fittings and last-minute shoots. Just 2 weeks after receiving the congratulatory email, Ms. Smith was thrust from her studies into the busy world of modeling when she was flown to New York for the Back to School shoot with other contest finalists. She learned quickly that the industry is not all glitz and glamor. The days can be really long, she said. Sometimes, you get your makeup and hair all done and you just sit there and never get shot. You learn to be patient. While she enjoys the fast-paced photo shoots, like the one she did in a cab in the middle of New York City, the teens favorite part of the shoots so far has been the in-between time with her fellow contest winners. She also doesnt mind the travel. In addition to her trip to New York, her new home away from home, she just got back from a weeks stay in Alaska, where she was featured in American Eagles holiday campaign. She might live in the City of Trees, but she was still shocked by the native beauty of the countrys most northern state. Ive never seen anything like itall the scenery and the trees and the mountains, Ms. Smith said. She even saw a bear, though Ms. Smith was happy to report it was from the safety of her hotel window. Having just signed a 2-year contract in addition to the oneyear contract that came with winning the contest, she looks forward to what is to come. The tennis playerturned model has learned a lot in the past few months, like being flexible enough to respond to a casting call at any moment, and taking criticism with a grain of salt. You cant worry about what other people think, she said. Along with new experiences, Ms. Smith shared some fashion tips for the upcoming fall and winter seasons, hinting that keeping it casual with flannels will be the trend. More apparent than her new style-savvy, however, is her growing sense of confidence, her mother shared. Ive never seen her smile so much, she said. Its given her a new kind of energy and sense of confidence. Its made her stronger. The Project Live Your Life campaign is back, and the Smiths encourage other Claremont kids to get involved.

August 31 through October 13: Chasing Daylight, Philip Latimeer Dike 1927-1943. Mr. Dike contributed greatly to the California art scene of the 1930s and 1940s through his work in what would later become 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. SQUARE i GALLERY: 110 Harvard Ave., Claremont. Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. or by appointment. Square i is an annex of the Artist Trait Gallery. Exhibits rotate approximately every 6 weeks. Call 621-9091 or e-mail info@squareigallery.com. Through August 31: Jessica McCoy, a faculty member at Pitzer College, is featured with her collection of oil paintings. 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 individuallyThe environment is sheltered, yet threatening, a paradox that alters the mood of the reconstructed spaces.

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.

The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1140 GOLDEN SPRINGS DR C, DIAMOND BAR, CA 91765 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the Note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said Note(s), advances if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations 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 Trustee`s Sale is estimated to be $320,286.01 (Estimated), provided, however, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary`s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier`s check 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 California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee`s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. 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. 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.

I can't say enough about Mason's easy-going professionalism. I have worked with many real estate agentsbuying and selling a homesome good and some not so good, but Mason stands above the rest. Although a busy agent, he made us feel like we were his only clients. It is obvious that Mason takes pride in his work and helped us through what has usually been a very stressful process. We were always informed, updated and met personally when needed. There was never pressure, unnecessary stress or unanswered questions. I will recommend everyone I know to Mason!

What Geoffs clients are saying in 2013


We want to thank you for everything you did to facilitate the sale and to calm us down several times during the process when it appeared things seemed to be going in the wrong direction. Sandy and I feel very comfortable that after we interviewed a number of agents to represent us in the sale we made the right decision when we selected you. Gene and Sandy Block We were extremely happy with Geoff as our realtor, he did an outstanding job. From the moment Geoff presented us with our property profile, we knew he would sell our house! Geoff was ethical and professional in how he dealt with us and others. We would definitely refer Geoff to our friends. It is just too bad that we dont have another house for him to sell. Larry and Kathy Mionske Geoff was excellent to work with. A pro. Efficient. Former out of area Realtor failed us for many months. Discount Brokers have failed our friends in getting them less net proceeds on their sales. College Escrow company was the most competent we have worked with. Rob and Susan Newman Harrison We first worked with Geoff when we bought our home four years ago with Geoff representing the seller. We were impressed so when it came time for us to sell the home, Geoff was the logical choice. In short, we made the right choice. He was with us every step of the way through the process and made our job easy. He priced the house right, marketed it right and obtained a very good price in a short time period. We believe he was committed to sell the house, not give it away. We will recommend him to anyone! Bill and Pat Parfitt It was a pleasure working with Geoff. He sold the house within a few weeks. Everything was to my satisfaction. I think he did a great job. Thanks again! Debra H. Thanks Geoff for helping me sell my home of many decades and transition to my new retirement home, I will always recommend you to my neighbors and friends. Dorothy Garner Excellent job! Meticulous representation! 100% satisfied! Dr. Martin Bauman

500 W. Foothill Blvd., Claremont

I work with 500 plus agents a year and Geoff was the best Ive ever worked with! I appreciate all his attention to detail and personal attention to the relocation client. We really appreciated that Geoff works with his clients personally rather than pawning them off to assistants or coordinators, it definitely makes a difference! Susan Lanucha, Sirva Relocation Geoff did a great job selling the property for me. Since I live quite a distance away, he was my eye on the property and helped me with all the details involved in getting the house ready to be sold. I am so grateful that he helped make the process easy and simple. Thank you! Maureen Vatcher Our sincere thanks for all that youve done to make our new Claraboya home possible. We are extremely grateful. Andrew Jardine and Jenny Darroch
