Fond memories on the golf course

was having a long, rough day out on the links. The word “mulligan” and “slice” continued to crop up in our conversation. But then again, I was only 15 years old and didn’t know any better.
When I walked up to the eighth hole, I was in a mood to just let it fly and swing with little concern (unless my ball hit someone at the tee box on the second hole.) I pulled out a 7-iron, which for a 134-yard hole was way too much club, even for my skinny frame. I didn’t care. I remember staring down at the ball before swinging, noticing a little crack on it. Didn’t care. I swung. The ball went straight and true, heading right towards the hole. I was calm on the outside, but inside my body was jumping for joy. When the ball hit the ground it disappeared. I sighed, thinking at least my day on the course had been consistent. My golfing buddy at the time was Mike Gassner (now Michael Gassner, Rancho Cucamonga court commissioner), who looked at me with a sorry face as we walked to the green. When I got to the green, my ball was nowhere to be seen. Mike and I fanned out behind the green, thinking I hit the ball too far. Why couldn’t I have used an 8 or 9-iron! Getting impatient, I naturally walked on the green to tend the flagstick for Mike’s second shot. I grabbed the stick and looked down. It was then I noticed my ball was lodged in the cup, with a now-arger crack smiling right up at me. I just shot a hole-in-one on the fly. Tee to cup. Needless to say, the events after that get a little blurry given this was 42 years ago. But I do remember running down a hill past the ninth hole to the golf shop screaming about what just happened. No need to finish my round, I was done for the day. The gentleman in the golf shop seemed a little alarmed, given he had this crazy kid running towards him with ball in hand. I showed him the ugly-looking ball, told him some version of this story and pointed to Mike at the top of the hill as my witness, who kindly waved to acknowledge the event. The gentleman in the golf shop had to figure this nutty story was true and immediately pulled out a small trophy with a big number “1” that also sported a nice spot to hold the ball. I’ve told this story a few times lately, not only because this is

still the only hole-in-one in my sporadic golfing career, but also because all these events occurred at the Claremont Golf Course. Claremont’s only golf course and one that is closing after 53 years due to dropping attendance. I consider this course a Claremont institution and hope maybe there’s something that can be done to save it. I’m even willing to throw in free advertising to promote it. Maybe this is a time the College Consortium can simply step up and do something for the city. Be a partner. Do the right thing. Invest in the course instead of let it go brown. Maybe Golden State Water can lower water rates and show they are a partner, too. Hey, anyone can dream.

Council addresses water, million-dollar expenditures

CIty Attorney Sonia Carvalho announces the councilʼs decision on Tuesday to send a new purchase offer to Golden State Water. During closed session earlier in the afternoon, the council approved the new offer.

T

he Claremont City Council Tuesday authorized the city’s negotiator to make a new offer to Golden State Water Company for the purchase of Claremont’s water system.
City Attorney Sonia Carvalho made the announcement after a closed council discussion on Tuesday afternoon. The original $54 million offer was revised after an updated appraisal, she confirmed. However, the amount of the new offer was not disclosed. Ms. Carvalho assured the cost of the new offer would be made available to the public once an official offer has been made to the water company. No public comment was made Tuesday at the 4 p.m. closed session or at the 6:30 p.m. council meeting.

city also proceeds on another long-term council priority and expected 7-digit expenditure, the construction of a new police facility. The council unanimously directed staff to work with consultants on creating a detailed cost forecast for a new police station with the goal of including a parcel tax measure on the ballot in 2014. The recommendation, provided by a Popaper located close to us simply partnered with a company that specializes in creating these sections and then split the revenue. Doesn’t seem real accurate or genuine, does it? Our approach at the COURIER was quite simple. Allow people to vote as many times as they want, so businesses could spread the word. If customers really like the business, they will vote. A perfect example is Rocky’s Laundry and Cleaners, who garnered close to 200 votes from their many customers. Since a majority of the almost 7000 votes were submitted online, it was easy for our staff to vet the process and find those who wanted to stuff their ballot box. In this day and age, you can tell how many votes came from a single source through ip addresses, date, time and use of incorrect categories (writing one name in all categories counts as a single vote!) In other words, the COURIER took great pride in this contest, made sure the counting was accurate, yet had an appreciation for the many odd and funny things people would do to show their enthusiasm. The results are now released to the public today, all for your enjoyment.

Maybe as residents of Claremont we can go out and support our course! Novel concept. Otherwise, the bean counters win and the golf course will slowly shut down by the end of the year. It’s hard for me to imagine another condo development or dormitory on these grounds. One thing for sure...there are plenty of stories like mine to be told. We have a real “Best of” section today The COURIER has not published many special sections highlighting the best places around Claremont to eat, drink and be merry. Actually, it’s a lot more than that when you consider there are many other businesses getting recognition too. It’s easy to see “Best of” special sections are more common now, as newspapers and websites find it an effective way to sell advertising. The COURIER obviously sold advertising for this section. What has been lost over time is the voter aspect to this contest. More often than not, it’s possible to buy your win with a paid ad or simply have hundreds of winning categories creating a large enough pool to solicit each a winner. One news-

lice Facility Feasibility and Site Analysis Ad Hoc committee appointed in 2012, was made based on findings that the current facility does not meet state code requirements, is seismically questionable and may no longer be viable in the case of a serious local emergency. “The police facility is the only community services resource in Claremont that we all rely on continuously,” said Michael Shea, co-chair of the ad hoc committee. “The Claremont police facility is the core resource connecting to and supporting the officers in the field when one citizen needs help and a community hub protecting all of us in the event of regional national disaster or other catastrophic events...the facility needs replacement.” The city’s current police facility first became operational in 1972. Since that time, there have been numerous updates to policing standards not to mention changes to Claremont’s own demographics, Mr. Shea pointed out: The city has doubled in size from 7.6 to 14 square miles, gone from 24,000 people to 35,000, and expanded from 24 police officers to 37. To adequately serve the city of Claremont as it stands today, several things were deemed necessary, including 47,200 feet of space, updated technology and infrastructure and 204 parking spaces. The topic of providing updated digs for the Claremont Police Department has been a discussion years in the making, previously postponed because of a lack of affordable alternatives and identified funding sources. With the help of the ad hoc committee, officials are now able to identify possibilities moving forward. Several location alternatives were dis-

cussed, including adding on to the current facility, an estimated $49.6 venture, and taking over what is currently the City Yard, a project that could cost $42 million, according to Mr. Shea. The committee pushed for the council to move forward with the cost forecast and to seek voter approval to build a new police facility at the most cost-effective location. “[Borrowing money] is at an all-time low,” Mr. Shea noted. “If the city is going to something, now is a good time to borrow money.” They then propose the money be paid back through a parcel tax divvied out to all property owners, including not-forprofit organizations traditionally exempt. “Law enforcement provides services on an equal benefit to all categories of property owners in the city of Claremont, including residents for profit businesses and not for profit organizations,” Mr. Shea justified. Though all were supportive of the committee’s proposal to take a more detailed look at the cost forecast, Councilmember Corey Calaycay remained cautious about moving forward with a bond for the police facility while the city is in the throes of water acquisition. “There’s no question there is a need here,” Mr. Calaycay said. “It just kind of concerns me that we are taking on a lot at one time, and they should all be looked at in context.” While cognizant of that concern, the council encouraged city staff to move forward with acquiring real cost estimates to make a more informed decision on whether or not to pursue a vote on a parcel tax.

As Claremont’s water fight moves forward, residents turn to Ojai

A

fter a yearlong lull, the city of Claremont is breaking its silence on the waterfront.

Officials recently announced that a town hall meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, November 6 at Claremont’s Taylor Hall to discuss information on the city’s potential water system purchase. To date, the Claremont Council and city administrators have remained tight-lipped on the subject of water acquisition, with documents regarding the Water Acquisition Feasibility Study kept under wraps. In the meantime, locals are preparing for what may be next in the Claremont’s battle with Golden State Water Company. Several have turned their attention to groups like Ojai Flow, a grassroots campaign—not unlike Claremonters Against Outrageous Water Rates—that recently succeeded in passing a bond measure to acquire their city’s water system from Golden State Water. About 75 people gathered together at the Hughes Center last week, eager to glean information from Ojai Flow volunteer Richard Hajas, who provided insight as to how the city of Ojai navigated its fight with Golden State Water and successfully started down the path of eminent domain. Not easily, Mr. Hajas noted. He was frank with his audience, admitting the process has been lengthy and chaotic, and is far from over. After finally convincing the publicly-owned Las Casitas Waster District to absorb Ojai’s system, and successfully approving their bond measure, Ojai Flow prepares to head to court next month to settle a dispute with Golden State over the validity of the bond. The starting point was finding common ground in their desire for local control. “We all agreed we aren’t dealing with the [California Public Utilities Commission] anymore,” Mr.

Mr. Daddi was one of the organizers of Ojai FLOW that recently succeeded in passing a bond measure to acquire their water company from Golden State Water Company.

Hajas said. “And we agreed Golden State has to be replaced.” Before Golden State or other utility companies can increase their fees, approval of the CPUC, a governor-appointed board, is mandated. As noted on Thursday night, however, utility companies regularly make

requests for large increases, sometimes of 20 percent or more. The CPUC will often present a compromise between the company and the consumer, but Mr. Hajas noted that compromise often still means a 15 percent increase. The CPUC recently approved a 16

Thursday, September 19 The Claremont Forum was targeted for the second time this month, with both incidents occuring within a week of each other. Burglars entered the Packing House nonprofit  on September 14 through the west-end doors, facing the entrance to the parking garage, and made off with more than $100 in cash and coins. Thieves attempted to repeat their success on Thursday, but without luck. Employees arrived at the store around 1:30 p.m. to find both rear door handles removed in the thieves’ attempt to pry open the doors. However, they were unable to gain entry to the business. There are no suspects in either incident. Friday, September 20 A Claremont car burglary has some people out of their seats. The owner of a gray Chevrolet Suburban returned to the vehicle, parked at the Claremont Unified School District office, to find an unknown burglar had punched out the keyhole of the SUV and taken off with the Suburban’s third-row bench seat. There are no suspects. Saturday, September 21 A dinner date turned into an unexpected dinner party at Norms on Saturday night. A couple was enjoying a night out on the town when 29-year-old Richard Rodriguez of West Covina de-

cided to join in on the fun. The couple wasn’t amused with their unexpected company. Police arrived to escort Mr. Rodriguez, determined to be drunk and disorderly, to his own night out in the Claremont jail. Sunday, September 22 It wasn’t too difficult for police to track down the man responsible for attempting to break into a home in the 500 block of Clark Avenue on Sunday morning. A perfect shoeprint found in the mud outside his point-of-entry was enough for the police to identify a 17-year-old boy, already on juvenile probation, in connection with the crime. He was transported to Los Padrinos juvenile detention center. Monday, September 23 Several residents and hikers have voiced their frustration over the recent strict parking enforcement at the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park. A few people, however, decided to take out their irritation in a more expressive way by attacking an inanimate object. Three men were caught on video kicking and punching the Wilderness Park kiosk, knocking it back into a planter and causing $2500 in damages. Follow-up investigation is being conducted. **** There may be some truth to locals’

concerns over the safety of the bustling Sprouts Shopping Center. A bicyclist was left in the dust on Monday afternoon after being struck by a gray Jeep near the southwest corner of the shopping center. The biker was pedaling down Mountain when the jeep exited the north alley near Kindred Spirits and collided with the cyclist, according to Lt. Mike Ciszek. The driver initially exited the vehicle before speeding off without leaving any contact information. Officers arrived and transported the bicyclist to Pomona Valley Hospital. Tuesday, September 24 A drive down Mt. Baldy Road led to a fatal fall on Tuesday night just outside of Claremont. Around 11:30 p.m. near Shinn Road in Mt. Baldy, a Toyota veered to the left of the roadway, colliding with a retaining wall and light pole before falling 150 feet over the side of Mt. Baldy Road, according to the California Highway Patrol. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. There were no passengers. The cause of the crash is under investigation.  Thursday, September 26 Burglars, after an initial failed attempt to break into the MW Smoke Shop in Peppertree Square earlier this month, were able to successfully gain entry into the Smoke Shop located at 444 Auto Center Drive early Thursday. Police arrived to the shop around 2:30 a.m. to check on an alarm activation. The front

Still unknown if 3 Claremont burglaries are related
On Wednesday, September 18, as Claremont residents hustled to work, burglars made a sweep of 3 local homes. A home in the 2100 block of Oxford Avenue was the first target, broken into around 10 a.m. while an elderly man was home. The victim described the burglar as a white or Hispanic male about 20-30 years old with brown hair. Another home was broken into between 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. in the 2200 block of Indian Hill Boulevard. A third home, located in the 100 block of Avila Way, was burglarized between 10 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. It is unknown if these burglaries are related. There is no suspect description for the Indian Hill or Avila Way incidents.

One of these ave Nemer believes the knowledge is the potential perception among comability to work smoothly munity members that he is “a union man,” CUSD as a group, communimight find it difficating cordially even in times of ELECTION who cult to be impartial disagreement, is an important when it comes to board decisions about quality for a school board mem- faculty issues. Mr. Nemer sees the 10 years he served ber. on the executive board of the Claremont Mr. Nemer has spent decades serving on committees within the Claremont Unified School District, such as the District Advisory Committee and the School Site Council at San Antonio High School. While, as he jokes, “It may not be that exciting to say, ‘Vote for me. I’ve been on committees,’” he feels such collaborative experience would serve him well should he win a spot on the Claremont school board in the November 5 election. “One of my strengths is being part of a group process, looking at issues from all sides and trying to work toward consensus,” he said. Mr. Nemer looks forward to sharing his views at a number of upcoming campaign events, including a gathering on Wednesday, October 2 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the home of Frank and Catherine D’Emilio, 1593 Niagara Ave. in Claremont. For more information on Mr. Nemer’s campaign, visit “Dave Nemer for Claremont Schools” on Facebook. For years, community members have suggested to Mr. Nemer that he run for school board. When he realized 2 of the 3 school board members up for re-election this year would not be running, he decided to heed the old adage and “seize the day.” Mr. Nemer welcomes the opportunity to make an impact on the Claremont school board at a momentous time that includes the district’s coming into significant money from property sales and the initiation of the new Common Core form of assessment and curriculum. His decision to run, however, has not come without a bit of sacrifice. If you serve on the CUSD Board of Education, you cannot be a current district employee. In recent post-retirement years, Mr. Nemer, who worked as a teacher in the district for more than 30 years, has returned to Claremont classrooms as a substitute teacher, almost exclusively in the Claremont High School math department. While he relishes his time with the students, whom he marvels “are so friendly,” he is prepared to stop subbing in order to serve students as a member of the school board. Candidacy for public office often prompts an outpouring of ideas, and the current school board race is no exception. Mr. Nemer emphasized that it’s important, however, to keep feasibility in mind when it comes to any initiative. “There’s no shortage of creative ideas out there,” Mr. Nemer said. “There’s a shortage of good ideas that are economically viable. One of my strengths has been on step 2, determining, ‘Can this fly? What needs to be modified for this to be successful?’” When assessing the feasibility of his campaign, Mr. Nemer was careful to acFaculty Association as an asset rather than a liability, however. “Having been involved in contract negotiations is part of my valuable experience,” he said. “It’s a strength that I’m aware of the teacher’s experience. The teacher and the student—along with the parent—are at the center of the educational process. So the teachers’ judgment and the teachers’ opinion should always be part of the conversation.” Mr. Nemer said he has been in agreement with the district and the board’s shared financial conservatism in recent years, which has helped CUSD weather the economic storm. Mr. Nemer went through a PhD program emphasizing data analysis and worked as a stockbroker for 5 years during a hiatus from teaching in the late 1980s. As a result, he understands the importance of having numbers jibe. “I’m conservative with budgets in my personal life and professionally,” he said. The economic tide is changing for CUSD. The passage of Proposition 30 has, at least for now, put a stop to budget cuts in California schools. What’s more, with CUSD having sold 2 surplus properties, to the tune of more than $13 million, Claremont schools will soon have an unprecedented amount of funds coming in at one time. Greater solvency can pose its own problems, Mr. Nemer cautions. “Sometimes, there are more disagreements than when the money is cut back,” he said. “It’ll be a challenge for the school board, making sound decisions about all the additional money going in.” Much attention has been given to the changes the Common Core will make in testing, including a greater emphasis on writing and the use of computers during assessment. Mr. Nemer said it’s important to note that Common Core—which is aimed at cultivating problem-solving and real-world application over rote learning—will involve a complete change in teaching methods. Staffers at the district have said that teachers will be consulted in the implementation of the Common Core curriculum, and Mr. Nemer plans to hold them to their word. “Teachers are the delivery system, so we need to make sure they’re involved every step of the way,” he said. District stakeholders as a whole could be made to feel they are more involved in the conversation about CUSD priorities, Mr. Nemer said. One way to facilitate this, he said, would be to take a look at whether the Claremont school board is interpreting the Brown Act in an overly restrictive way. The Brown Act was created to ensure

the actions and deliberations of all governing boards be held openly, so constituents are always in the loop. Along with stating a board cannot meet in secret, the act stipulates the following, according to a 2010 publication by the League of California Cities called Open and Public IV: A Guide to the Ralph M. Brown Act: “Meetings subject to the Brown Act are not limited to face-to-face gatherings. They also include any communication medium or device through which a majority of a legislative body discusses, deliberates or takes action on an item of business outside of a noticed meeting.” A majority of the 5-member school board would be 3 members. While there are many interpretations of the Brown Act, it could be argued that residents or a community group could legally speak

with one or 2 board members, expressing ideas and concerns for informational purposes only. Many members of governing boards, however, including the Claremont Unified School District Board of Education, rarely engage in this form of dialogue for fear of violating the Brown Act. As a result, the expression of community concerns is often limited to a few minutes of public comment during school board meetings. “We would want to get some clarification on that from different sources,” Mr. Nemer said. “While the point of the Brown Act is to improve transparency, if it is interpreted too strictly it can cut off communication both ways.” Mr. Nemer and his wife Ann have 2 grown children who are graduates of Claremont High School and 3 grandchildren along with a dog and cat that have the run of their home. When Mr. Nemer isn’t busy with his first political campaign, he loves to read, particularly biographies and historical non-fiction. The latter genre lends him a great deal of perspective. “The main thing you learn from history is that there is all of this progress in technology and the comforts of life, but very slow progress when it comes to values,” he said. “We’ve made great strides in overcoming prejudice over the last 50 years, but they have been slow strides.” His recent time at CHS, however, has been heartening, with the many gains in tolerance in full view. “The kids are just wonderful when it comes to that.” A profile on the remaining CUSD school board candidate, Paul A. Steffen, will appear in an upcoming edition of the COURIER.

Catch ya on the flip side
by Mellissa Martinez

T

he city of San Juan Capistrano recently imposed an ordinance against the wearing of flip-flops in some public parks. Baffled council members and local residents of the southern California beach town are scratching their heads wondering who is responsible for the flip-flop block.

LEX
IN THE

As it turns out, the new rule was recommended by the city’s insurer in an effort to protect the town from liability. Seizing this opportunity for word-lovers, I have uncovered an inventory of potential liabilities related to the casual footwear. As it turns out, ‘flipflop’ has a surprising history, which includes annoyances, insults and rude relatives. Since the mid 1500s, the expression ‘flip-flop’ has been used to describe a variety of flapping or banging sounds. According to most language and shoe experts, its use for ‘sandal’ emerged in the late 1960s. Inspired by the slap-slap sound of the rubber shoe hitting the sole of a foot, this onomatopoeic origin can be noted in many other unpleasant English words like grunt, gurgle, gargle, burp, blab and flick. Nowadays, ‘flip-flop’ is an important noun in quarrels and political putdowns, mostly used to characterize second thoughts, about-faces and changes of heart. The first word of the flip-flop duo, ‘flip,’ is riddled with unsavory associations. As a noun, it appeared in the early 1500s as a contraction of ‘fillip,’ the noise made when flicking a finger. Over the next 100 or so years, the meaning of ‘flip’ expanded to include verbs, ‘turn over quickly,’ and ‘somersault,’ an adjective, ‘glib,’ and another noun, a ‘frothy hot, boozy

CITY
drink for sailors.’ A disrespectful person is ‘flippant,’ while the less popular, backside, of an album is called the ‘flip side.’ ‘Flipping’ is used as a euphemism for the much more offensive f-adjective, and of course there are the objectionable actions of flipping one’s lid, flipping someone off and flipping the bird. Flip’s partner, ‘flop,’ doesn’t fare much better. Emerging in the same century, it represents the heavier, duller (more depressing) sound. Although its primary meaning is now ‘complete failure,’ it can also mean ‘fall down suddenly,’ ‘swing loosely’ or ‘unexpectedly decide to sleep at someone’s house.’ Additionally, there is the popular basketball ‘flop,’ where a player purposefully falls hard to the ground to draw an unfair foul against his opponent. Potentially the most damaging associations for ‘flip-flop’ (and perhaps its undoing in San Juan Capistrano) is its close connection with the word ‘thong.’ In the time of Old English, a ‘thong’ or twong was a narrow strip of leather used as a cord or strip. Just a few years after the emergence of ‘flip-flop,’ ‘thong’ gained popularity as an alternative to ‘sandal.’ It later enjoyed widespread notoriety in the 1990s when it surprisingly picked up a new meaning—the

teeny-tiny strip of cloth that passes for underwear in some circles. Adding to these negative word affiliations, The New York Times recently reported a study showing that wearing flip-flops can result in sore feet, ankles and legs. Apparently, walking in flip-flops alters one’s step, causing problems and pain leading from the foot all the way up to the hips and lower back. What’s surprising is that human beings have been consistently inflicting themselves with flip-flop pain for centuries! There are images of this offending sandal on Egyptian murals dating back to 4000 BCE. The Romans sported this casual footwear in their public arenas and the Japanese wore a similar style, which they brought to America during WWII. How long should the madness continue? San Juan Capistrano has proven itself to be way ahead of the curve on this one. Not only are officials protecting their citizens from sore feet and unwanted lower back pain, but they are cleaning up the parks by banning all association with skimpy underwear, shifty people, blabs, burps, grunts and complete failures. What more could a small-town resident ask for?

Walter’s celebration
Dear Editor: On behalf of the Claremont Community Foundation, I want to thank everyone who attended the celebration of Nangy and Fahima Ghafarshad’s 40 years as owners of Walter’s Restaurant and, more importantly, members of the Claremont community. Nangy and Fahima were most generous to contribute the proceeds of the event’s ticket sales to both The Claremont Community Foundation and Claremont Heritage. Their thoughtfulness and generosity is greatly appreciated and will contribute to the programs of both nonprofit organizations. It was a perfect evening, filled with delicious food and their many friends. As always, Nangy, Fahima and their family welcomed everyone in attendance with their wonderful smiles. It was a very special night for the Ghafarshad family, the restaurant staff and their many friends. It was wonderful to learn that several people had worked at Walter’s for more than 30 years. That is just one more testament of the love and care Nangy and Fahima exhibit as an integral part of our community. We wish them and their family many more years of success and are thankful that they chose to be part of the Claremont community.
Paul Steffen Chair, Claremont Community Foundation

READERS’ COMMENTS
Tired of fighting
Dear Editor: I’m done with the water fight. I’ve had it with the ongoing fight between the city, Claremont Outrage and Golden State Water Company. I live on South College Avenue in a 1000-squarefoot home on a 6000-square-foot lot. I watch my water, electric and gas usage each month. My average monthly water bill in the winter is $48 and $109 in the summer (not bad for southern California). I don’t live beyond my means. Yes, Golden State’s rates are high and their management needs to do something about it. I thought it was a good idea to have the community rally for lower rates. But it occurred to me that most people who are upset about their high water bills are the people that use too much. I saw the Channel 2 news story a few months ago and noticed that the customer they interviewed had a sports car in his kitchen and a koi pond in his yard. Heck, I can’t even afford a fish tank (I’m sure you can find that video on YouTube). This very wealthy person, who has a large koi pond in his yard, is complaining about hundreds of dollars in water bills? I have learned he’s the one leading the flocks to have the city take over the water. It’s time people wake up. I don’t have a college degree, but I do have common sense. I know that if the city takes over, the rates are really going to go up. That means me, the poor customer, is going to have higher bills to help the rich have lower bills. I can’t afford to sell my house and move, so I’m here for the long run. But the customers who are making a fuss can. They’ll end up having the city buy the water company, causing my bills to go up, and then they’ll sell their million dollar home and move, leaving me—the little guy—stuck paying for their greed. I’m done listening to their pleas. If people don’t want to pay high bills—not only in water but everything—stop using so much. If you don’t want to pay over $100 every time you fill up your tank to your Escalade, then buy a Prius. If you don’t want to pay over $100 each month for your utilities, then conserve. Stop being a part of the problem and start being a part of the solution. It’s people like that who have no problem draining the ocean and then complain that there’s no more water. Alice McKay

Claremont Golf Course
Dear Editor: A major issue here is consideration given by the Claremont College Consortium to their public image and interchange with the city of Claremont and surrounding communities. The thought that alternative funding methods might be devised seems not to have been considered. The Consortium’s decision was purportedly based on golf course income, which had been down 30

percent since 2008, leaving them with no other decision than to close the course. Perhaps they plan to make room for a new college? Perhaps they plan to make room for dorms for a new college. The Consortium already has as much as 200 acres of land not yet built on. During the last 100 years, thousands of students from The Colleges have earned college credit on this course. Hundreds have learned on their own, including many Claremont High School students. Many rehabilitation therapies have been conducted by Casa Colina at the golf course. The city has cooperated with and allowed the Consortium to acquire dozens and dozens of houses and other properties throughout Claremont to hold in reserve for future building. The Consortium has not revealed what their intended alternate use is for the golf course land. It is urgent that the city of Claremont, including the city council, request that the Consortium provide a briefing as to the closing and what purpose they have in mind for the land. This briefing should include all of the other land the Consortium holds in reserve. Some still believe that The Colleges are—or should be— part of the Claremont community.

A travel ‘quickie’
by Jan Wheatcroft

I

love traveling to Sweden to visit my friends up near Uppsala, which is about an hour north of Stockholm by car. They live out in the country with horses and cows, farmers and bee keepers, and open fields and forests all around. They aren’t near anything but nature. It is very friendly, peaceful and restful but we manage to do things that connect us with the outside world, as well.
When I went this spring I was treated to what I now call “a travel quickie.” A trip to a new foreign destination for less than 2 days. Short but very sweet. We awoke at 3 a.m. and, by 4 a.m., we were on the road to the Arlanda airport in Stockholm where we caught a plane for a short flight to Helsinki, Finland. Neither Susanna or I had been there before but Christer had once on a school outing. It was a very quick flight and we were soon in another country to have an adventure. I love adventures. We hopped on an airport bus into the center of town and the railroad station, marking the spot where we would catch the bus for its return trip to the airport the next day. None of us knew much of anything about where we were, this was a “quickie” in all senses with no real time for preparation. All I knew is that the Finnish language is very difficult. It is related to Hungarian, which is also difficult, and quite unknown to me. When I was in Hungary, I found it difficult to communicate in English but here I found the Finnish to be well-versed in at least English, French and German. Between the 3 of us we had one small “wheelie” carryon and a bag for everything we might need for one night there. We walked a long distance to find our hotel in the “design” district where Christer had booked us due to my “arty” nature and interest. We tried to follow maps and although we made a lot of mistakes, we finally found it at the end of the street. Susanna and Christer had a double room and I had a single. My room was the tiniest I have ever had, even smaller than the Tokyo businessman’s hotel which I had had to squeeze in and out. I was glad I was not a bird needing to stretch my wings—an impossible feat here. However it was clean and had everything one needed, just in a very compact way. After all, I was only going to sleep there one night.

I have a feeble sense of direction. My friend Frances says it is because I don’t pay much attention to where I am and where I am going. She’s probably right. Luckily for all of us, Christer is a good map reader and the tram stops all have maps posted which made sense to him. We learned which trams followed which routes and took tours around the city to get a feel for where we were. We each purchased a 24-hour tram ticket on the advice of a clever salesperson. This allowed us to hop on and off of as many trams or buses as we chose to travel on. Many of the neighborhoods had lovely old buildings and some were Art Deco in design and very lovely to look at. Eventually, places began to look familiar as we had passed by them quite a few times. One of the hardest things was deciding where to go. Should we choose a museum or a church? A shop or gardens? Or should we just walk around and admire the different neighborhoods? So much has to be cut out when you have a large menu and a short amount of time but, luckily, each of us was flexible and not stressed at not being able to do it all. And also, luckily, we all like to eat. Especially fish, which there was plenty of. In the end, this is what we did. We had a lovely afternoon cruise on the top of a sightseeing boat that sailed around the harbor and around the outlying islands. I loved the wind whipping through my hair and the stewardess handed out blankets—we eventually wrapped them around our heads looking like Muslim women in purdah. I preferred the blanket wrap to sitting inside a stuffy cabin. The islands were green and dotted with summer houses and boat docks and mansions. It was relaxing. We also visited Temppeliaukio Church, a famous church carved out of the natural bedrock on a hill that we hiked up. It was super lovely with a huge domed wooden ceiling and natural rock all around. And yet it had the feeling of soaring into space. It was totally peaceful, even though it was filled with quite a few visitors. We also visited the Kamppi Chapel of Si-

lence. We had seen it from a distance right in the middle of town but had no idea what it was. It was rounded in shape and was built of a pale wood, which really stood out from all the cement and stone around it. The interior is made of the same pale wood in a circular shape with light coming out of the ceiling. It called for some quiet meditation and a moment of contemplation. We managed to look into a few shops but had to quickly, as Christer doesn’t enjoy that form of recreation as much as I do. And then there was the eating. Down by the harbor, we found a local flea market that turned out to be rather boring, but it sat in front of a lovely old building full of food stalls and restaurants. It was a pleasure to browse among all the wonderful breads and bakery goods, the candies and chocolates, the piles of fruits and vegetables and the array of fish and meat choices. We did order our meal here on the second day and took it upstairs to eat overlooking the sea. We sat on the “wrong” side—one restaurant owned one side and one owned the other. How would one know this? We didn’t learn until we were shooed out by a server. I think my favorite eating establishment was on the last day, just before we had to get to the train station to pick up our wheelie case and catch the airport bus. We had ridden down an old street and someone on the tram pointed out the first bakery in Helsinki. Naturally we had to stop and sample the pastries and coffee. We sat outside, as all good cafe dwellers do, after hovering about waiting for someone to leave a table. We tried different tarts and chocolate layer cakes and creamy coffees and sunshine. Bliss. And then the adventure was over and we rode back to the airport and soon flew home. Before you knew it, we were back in the local grocery shop on the way to our home to pick up something for dinner; a meal one can have quite late in the evening in the Swedish summer as it remains light for such a long time. We sat outside to eat as most of the mosquitos were gone at that hour. I truly love the idea of a “travel quickie.” It is not the way I would like to experience all of my traveling but when one stays in one place for a while and visits that place over many years, it is a fun way of seeing just a small bit of another part of the world; sort of like having just a nibble of a rich and fattening bear claw to know how it tastes. This now opens the door for all sorts of mini-adventures for the next years, Estonia, Latvia...

Gabby Giffords receives Ellen Browning Scripps award

“B

e passionate! Be courageous! Be your very best!” The words were halting, but the message was eloquent and strong as former Congresswoman Gabrielle “Gabby” Giffords, a member of the Scripps College Class of 1993, returned to the campus to become only the third recipient of the Ellen Browning Scripps Medal, the college’s highest level of recognition.

Until Saturday’s ceremony in Bridges Auditorium, only two individuals have received the medal named for the college’s founder, Ellen Browning Scripps. They were First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton in 1994 and former US Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor in 1998. An estimated 1400 attended the Saturday afternoon event, where Scripps President Lori Bettison-Varga lauded the courageous lawmaker who, on January 8, 2011, was gravely wounded in a shooting at a Congress on Your Corner gathering at

a supermarket in her native Tucson, Arizona. The Congresswoman was among 19 who were hit by gunfire when a man began firing at the crowd. Six of those were killed. Ms. Giffords subsequently went the end of the Via Santa Catarina cul-desac, located next to the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park. According to the California Vehicle Code, the city council has the ability to enforce the removal of cars from restricted areas on either a citywide or case-by-case basis. However, “doing this on a case-by-case basis would be time consuming and redundant,” explained City Engineer Loretta Mustafa. While tow-away zones may now become more prevalent, residents will have a warning before their cars are carted off. All areas to be subjected to car removal will need appropriate signage before the law is enforced. —Beth Hartnett

“We keep kicking the can and we can keep on doing that and wishing that if there was a disaster we would just be okay, but that is not true,” said Mayor Opanyi Nasiali. “We need to do something.” Crack down on illegal parking Parking next to a red curb in Claremont may now mean a visit to the impound lot, thanks to a new ordinance. In order to more effectively enforce the city’s parking regulations, the council unanimously agreed to make all restricted parking areas in the city into potential “tow-away zones.” The move was made in response to the city’s recent decision to create a no parking zone at

through extensive emergency brain surgery due to a bullet entering the back of her head and exiting through the front of her skull. She has since progressed through various surgeries and programs of physical, occupational and speech therapy. Throughout the challenges of her recovery, the 43-year old Democratic congresswoman has been accompanied by her husband, Mark Kelly, a Captain in the United States Navy and astronaut who commanded the final mission of the space shuttle Endeavor in May 2011. The couple has been married since November of 2007. Their family includes Captain Kelly’s daughters, Claudia and Claire. Ms. Giffords began her governmental career in 2001 as a member of the Arizona House of Representatives from the 13th District. She then was elected to the Arizona State Senate’s 28th District where she served from 2003 to 2005. In 2007, she was elected to the US House of Representatives’ 8th District in Arizona in 2007 and served three terms until her resignation in January 2012. She was the youngest

woman ever elected to Arizona’s state government. During a 2009 commencement address at Scripps, Ms. Giffords emphasized the importance of public service and integrity. She was quoted as saying at the time, “Standing up for one’s own integrity makes you no friends…yet defiance of the mob, in the service of what which is right, is one of the highest expressions of courage I know.” Following her graduation from Scripps, Ms. Giffords spent a year in Mexico as a Fulbright recipient. She went on to earn a master’s degree in regional planning from Cornell University. She worked as an associate for regional economic development in New York City before returning to Arizona as chief executive officer of El Campo Tire Warehouses, an automotive business owned by her grandfather. Although she resigned from her congressional post in 2012, she has vowed that “I will return, and we will work together for Arizona and this great country.” While it has not yet happened, there are reports that a US Navy ship, a littoral combat ship (LCS-10), will be named the USS Gabrielle Giffords. And earlier this year, Ms. Giffords and her husband, now retired from the Navy and NASA, formed Americans for Responsible Solutions with a stated aim of encouraging elected officials to stand up for ways to prevent gun violence and protect responsible gun ownership. Scripps President Bettison-Varga said of the event, “Our community joined together today in celebration of Gabrielle Giffords and all she has accomplished on behalf of women, civil discourse and our country. Her leadership brings people together.” Ms. Giffords and her husband wrote a book in 2011 about their lives called Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope. Most of it, necessarily, is the voice of Captain Kelly, but the final chapter in the book is in Ms. Gifford’s own words, and she concludes by writing, “I will get stronger. I will return.”

City looks to bring business approvals away from commissions, back to city staff

C

laremont officials are looking to change the way the city does business, at least in terms of the city’s review and approval process.
A series of major changes to Claremont’s municipal code will be heading in for commission and council review next month. Among them is a proposed change to simplify the new business review process. The proposal, which was given a preliminary review by the Planning Commission earlier this month,

recommends the city no longer mandate a Conditional Use Permit (CUP), requiring commission approval, for businesses deemed to have “few, if any, impacts” or generally viewed as “noncontroversial.” These include establishments such as dancing studios or tutoring centers. Businesses like these would now only require a “Special Use and Development Permit” (SUDP). Under this type of license, such businesses would still be subject to zoning requirements, but would be able to receive approval at the city staff level without the need for a commission review. Brian Desatnik, director of community development,

hopes this translates to time savings across the board. “This will streamline the process, while still protecting the city’s interest,” Mr. Desatnik said. “The same kind of conditions will still be in place without having to go to commission review with not a whole lot to talk about.” In addition to the switch from CUP to SUDP, city staff is recommending the introduction of a “Not Permitted in the Commercial Freeway Zone” designation. This change was deemed necessary in order to be consistent with regulations under the city’s General Plan, which states that the city’s Commercial Freeway Zone is for those busi-

nesses “oriented toward the regional market and benefiting from high visibility.” They include automobile sales and ancillary uses, supermarkets, hotels, larger retailers, restaurants and drive-through restaurants.” Non sales tax-generating businesses, like insurance companies, will now be included under the “Not Permitted in the Commercial Freeway Zone” classification. The COURIER will continue to publish updates on the proposed code changes as more information becomes available.

Douglas H. Moore
Professor, mathematician, computer pioneer
Douglas Houston Moore, a longtime resident of Claremont, died Tuesday, September 17, 2013 in the Health Center at Mt. San Antonio Gardens. He was 93. Mr. Moore was a math whiz from an early age, an ability that naturally led to an interest in computer technology well before the phrase “computer geek” had been invented. A native of Los Angeles, he graduated in 1938 from Manual Arts High School with a Science Award from Bausch and Lomb. At UC Berkeley, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, he graduated in 1942 with honors in mathematics and then was drafted by the US Army Air Force. He became a weather observer and teacher of Morse Code. In 1946, Mr. Moore entered the master’s program in math at UCLA, where he found love, as well as numbers. The math department had just hired a secretary named Nan Ferris, who was a graduate student in education. According to Mr. Moore, she was not only pretty but also drove an impressive gray Plymouth coupe with leather upholstery in which they went to see “Fantasia” in Hollywood. They were married on December 23, 1947. One year later, Mr. Moore finished his master’s thesis on “Geodesic Coordinates and Parallel Displacement of a Vector.” The marriage lasted 64 years. With advanced degree and wife in hand, Mr. Moore began his professional life as a teacher of mathematics at West Coast University in Los Angeles. A daughter, Nancy Gaye Moore, was born in 1950 followed by a son, Eric Stuart Moore, in 1952. The family moved to Claremont in 1958, when Mr. Moore was hired by Cal Poly Pomona. There, he taught mathematics while completing a PhD at UCLA in engineering. His doctoral thesis was entitled, “Convolution Products and Quotients of Sequences: An Operational Calculus for Sequences and for Pulsed-data

Betty Kessler-Roys

Beloved wife, mother, grandmother, woman of faith
Betty Kessler-Roys, a resident of Upland and longtime resident of Claremont, died on September 13, 2013. She was 80. Mrs. Kessler-Roys was born in Murchison, Texas on April 20, 1933. She was married for 35 years to Charles William Kessler, who preceded her in death in 1989. She was active for many years at Pomona First Baptist Church, in the Christian Women’s Club and in several Bible studies. Mrs. Kessler-Roys is survived by her husband, Harold Roys of Upland; by her son, Charles Bradford Kessler of Claremont and most recently of Rancho Cucamonga; by her daughter, Tamara Leigh Kessler of Mt. Baldy, California; by 6 grandchildren, Kristina Allred, Kimberly Donaldson, C. Michael Kessler, Karolyn Miller, David Kessler and Daniel Kessler; and by 10 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Jean Murfin of Louisiana, and by her brothers, Merlon Carter and Randy Carter, both of Texas. A memorial service for Mrs. Kessler-Roys was held at the Wedgewood Banquet Center in Upland. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made in Betty Kessler-Roys’ name to Pomona First Baptist Church in Pomona.

and Digital Systems.” The marriage survived. Mr. Moore briefly left California in 1968 to work as a professor of environmental control at the University of Wisconsin, Green Bay. He published his first book, Heaviside Operational Calculus, in 1971. But the job didn’t agree with him and he grew tired of digging the snow out of the driveway every morning in order to get to work, so he returned to his home state and began teaching math at Northrop University. In 2003, he wrote, “my most pleasing teaching experience was at Northrop, in analog computer simulation, where I could simulate sending a rocket to the moon.” In 1989, Mr. Moore moved with his wife to Mt. San Antonio Gardens, where he offered his computer expertise to those in need. In addition to his son and daughter, he is survived by 4 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren, one of whom is currently studying for a PhD in astrophysics. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made in Douglas Moore’s name to the Nature Conservancy or to Mt. San Antonio Gardens Homeship fund, which supports residents in need of financial assistance.

From CHS to UNLV, Claremont family turns out first-class coaches

C

laremont is not known as a basketball town. It does, however, have its own basketball dynasty, with three noted coaches hailing from the City of Trees.
It started with Lowell Rice, who coached basketball at Claremont High School from 1983 to 1993, ending his run by guiding the Wolfpack to a Baseline League Championship. Lowell’s sons, Dave and Grant, both of whom attended CHS and played for the Pack, have gone on to follow in his footsteps, taking a family passion to even greater heights. Dave is head basketball coach for the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, while his younger brother Grant helms the varsity basketball team at Bishop Gorman, a Catholic high school in Las Vegas whose program is ranked in the nation’s top 10. Lowell, who was a government teacher at CHS before his 2005 retirement, believes basketball imparts many lessons, not least of which is the power of collaboration. “It’s a game where individual talent comes out but, more than that, it takes team play to win,” he said. “Teamwork’s the thing, and putting something ahead of you as an individual.” Chris Thoits, a 1989 graduate of CHS, was coached by Lowell and played on the Wolfpack with Grant as well as with Dave, whose career he follows today. “[Coach Rice] was a soft-spoken man who never yelled, but he got his message across,” Mr. Thoits said. “He was very concerned about people’s behavior morally and ethically. When you’re in high school, you think you’re going to make the NBA. But he could ground you and let you realize there’s more to life than basketball.”

COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger Lowell Rice, a retired Claremont High School basketball coach, often travels with his wife Linda to Las Vegas, where their older son Dave is head UNLV basketball coach and where their younger son Grant coaches Bishop Gorman's varsity hoops team.

If you want to succeed in the game, Lowell emphasized that you have to be persistent. “As far as the boys taking up basketball as a profession, we joke and say that it’s in the genes, and to a great extent it was,” Lowell said. “But they are also both incredibly hardworking.”
When Dave was 2, Lowell and his wife Linda, who is also an educator, volunteered to teach in Kenya. The family didn’t have a television, but Lowell arranged for alternate entertainment. He pulled a piece of wood from the side of a packing crate, nailed it to a Eucalyptus tree as a backboard, then attached a basketball hoop to it. Dave spent innumerable hours at his makeshift court. “I became a very good shooter, and so much of that comes from the fact that my dad taught me how to do it,” he said.

When Dave was 12 and Grant was nearly 6, the Rices moved back to the United States and to Claremont, where Dave drew inspiration from watching Lowell coach the Wolfpack. Eventually, he made it to the CHS varsity team himself and was coached by his father. “It was a wonderful opportunity for us to spend time together doing something we both love,” he said. After graduating from CHS in 1986, Dave went to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where he played under the legendary Jerry Tarkanian. One of his peak experiences as a Runnin’ Rebel was when his team won the 1990 National Championship, to the jubilation of Vegas basketball fans. After Dave graduated in 1991, Coach Tarkanian offered him a position as assistant coach, a post he filled for 11 seasons. In 2004, Dave left to become assistant coach at Utah State. In 2005, he became assistant coach at Brigham Young University, where he was promoted to assistant head coach in 2008. He characterized his invitation to return as head coach for his alma mater in 2011 as an exciting opportunity. Dave’s coaching philosophy is much like his father’s. “It’s about taking a group of individuals and trying to help them become a team,” he said. The Las Vegas community has a special relation-

ship with its home basketball team, regularly packing the nearly 19,000 seats in the UNLV arena. Lowell, who along with Linda regularly travels from Claremont to Las Vegas to take in their sons’ games, said the enthusiasm of Runnin’ Rebels fans is infectious. “It’s fantastic. It’s so loud and electric that you get excited,” he said. Dave—who this year saw one of his players, Anthony Harris Bennet, go on to play with the Cleveland Cavaliers after being the first overall pick in the NBA draft—not only gets a boost from the crowds. He also derives a great deal of support from his brother Grant. While Grant, a 1993 CHS graduate, is six-and-ahalf years younger than Dave, Lowell said his sons are more like twins. Like Dave, Grant played for his dad on the Wolfpack basketball team. After two years at Chaffey College, Grant took another page from Dave’s playbook, transferring to UNLV, where Dave was serving as assistant coach. Nowadays, the Rice boys talk every day. They have plenty to discuss, because Grant’s career coaching a high-powered high school team mirrors his older brother’s experience in many ways. The Bishop Gorman Gaels have won the 4A Nevada State Championships five times since Grant beCOACH/continues on the next page

COURIER file photo/Tom Alleman Former Claremont High School basketball coach Lowell Rice has passed along his passion for coaching to his sons, Grant and Dave. Mr. Rice is seen here in a COURIER photo from the late 1980s, expressing his surprise at a run-out clock in a CHS game against Riverside North. The caption notes it was a “squeaker victory” for Claremont, who beat Riverside 7673 in the final moments. Mr. Rice was quoted as saying, “There are no heroes out there, just a bunch of kids who want to play hard and who never give up.” COACH continued from the previous page

came head basketball coach in 2002. Like the Rebs, the Gaels travel across the country, regularly play to packed stadiums and often have their games televised. Grant has also seen a couple of athletes he has coached go on to the NBA. A young CJ Watson, who went on to become a point guard for the Indiana Pacers, played for Bishop Gorman during Grant’s first year coaching there. Just this year, another of Grant’s players, 2012 Bishop Gorman graduate Shabazz Muhammad, was drafted to the Minnesota Timberwolves. While he gets a kick out of such success stories, Grant emphasizes it’s the rare student who will reach the ultimate aim of being a professional athlete. “One of my biggest goals is to give these kids an opportunity to play basketball in college and hopefully get a scholarship, ” he said. Dave and Grant also share the offthe-court experience of parenting. Grant and his wife Brooke, a graduate of Claremont High School, have 3 children: Carli, 10, Blake, 9, and Drew, 7. Dave and his wife Mindy, an Upland High School graduate, have 2 boys: Travis, 15, and Dylan, 11. Dylan was diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum a number of years ago. While he is high-functioning and mainstreamed in his schooling, Dave and his wife are well aware of the challenges that children with autism face and of the importance of early intervention. With this in mind, they have founded the Dave Rice Foundation, a nonprofit aimed at education and the support of health initiatives benefiting those with

developmental disorders such as autism. Last year the foundation, which recently added comedian and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel to its board, gave $100,000 to the UNLV Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders; this year, the foundation gave more than $250,000 in grants to local Las Vegas autism organizations. Dave’s older son is poised to continue in the tradition of having a Rice coaching a Rice. Next year Travis, a sophomore at Bishop Gorman, will play on the Gaels’ varsity team, with his Uncle Grant as his coach. Every team needs a cheerleader and, for the Rice family, that person is Linda, who has been married to Lowell

for nearly 50 years. While she never played hoops herself, she grew up in Indiana, where “basketball was it.” Linda met Lowell when both were attending Anderson University in Indiana. While he taught and coached at CHS, she served for many years as a principal in the Ontario-Montclair School District. As the matriarch in a family with 3 sports-minded gentlemen, she also pursued a second, unofficial career as basketball booster. “I’ve put in a lot of hours in the stands—I’ve attended thousands of games. Fortunately, I love the sport,” she said. With the prominence of her sons’ coaching careers, Linda occasionally

has to read negative press coverage, but she tries to take it with a grain of salt. “In reality, the good goes with the bad and the wins come with the losses,” she said. “Luckily, there are lots of highs and not many lows.” Linda has always strived to keep her sons grounded amid the ups and downs. “When the boys were growing up, when they were going to a game, to school or to anywhere, I would always say to them, ‘Remember who you are,’” she said. “If you remember who you are, you will never stray from what is right.” And basketball continues to be the sport that is just right for the Rice family. “For me, it’s the best game that’s ever been invented, just because I like it so much,” Lowell said.

Girls Golf The Claremont girls golf team returns two varsity starters from a year ago, highlighted by second-year team captain and fourth-year varsity starter Kennedy Bingham. Caitlin Chan joins Bingham as the only other returning varsity starter from last year’s squad, which featured three first-team All-Sierra League honorees, the most recipients head coach Octavio Hernandez has had in one season in his four years with the program. This year’s team boasts five seniors, one junior and five freshmen. “We have a young and energetic team,” Coach Hernandez said. But that’s not stopping Coach Hernandez from having tall aspirations for his team this season. “My expectations are that we will be competitive in league,” he said. “Our goal every year is to advance to CIF competition and have some of our golfers reach CIF individuals too.” The Wolfpack are off to a strong start this season and will continue play on Wednesday, October 2 at Ayala. Football The Claremont Wolfpack are 0-3 to begin the 2013 season, having fallen to non-conference opponents Glendora, 23-15, Walnut, 42-35, and Bonita, 3528.

once healthy, to compete for the Sierra League Title,” head coach Mike Collins said. Claremont has already rushed for 772 yards in their first three games, led by senior Cecil Fleming who

finished with 237 yards and three touchdowns last Friday against Bonita. Senior quarterback Craig Meyers was injured during the season opener after taking a blindside hit against Glendora, and was replaced by junior Ryan O’Conner in the subsequent game. The Wolfpack currently have one athlete committed to play at the collegiate level: tackle Jordan Austin, who plans to head for USC. Claremont will host Northwood tonight at CHS at 7 p.m. in search of its first win of the season. Coed Cross Country The 2013 Claremont cross country team is looking to make big strides this season, with nine returning seniors and state championship aspirations. The girls return seniors Megan Renken, Merin Arft and Kaylee Jorgensen, junior Julia Cantrell and sophomores Kiana Cavanaugh, Reily McLachlan and Annie Gushue. Newcomers Annie Boos and Alex Gushue are expected to contribute as well, according to head coach Rob Lander. Seniors Daniel Ross, Adam Michno, Bryce Kasamoto, Tony Ceccarelli, Isaac Texeira and David Musa will lead the boys varsity squad this year. Coach Lander noted that freshman Ryan Renken looks like a standout this season and could earn a spot on the varsity squad. The varsity teams will not be the only ones making a playoff push for Claremont, however, according to Coach Lander. “I expect that we will be in the mix for five Sierra League Titles, boys and girls varsity, boys and girls junior varsity and boys frosh/soph,” Coach Lander said. “Our boys and girls Varsity will go deep into the post-season, and hopefully run well at the State Championships.” —Bryan Stauffer

LECTURE Jackson Katz is internationally known for his innovative work in helping promote gender violence education in schools, sports and the military. While many programs narrowly define sexual assault as a women’s issue, Mr. Katz has shifted the discourse by talking about sexual assault as an issue that men have a stake in. In 1993, Mr. Katz helped found the Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) program at Northeastern University. This was the first time high school, college and professional athletes were all enlisted in a program of this scale to combat men’s violence against women. Today, the MVP program has been implemented across

LENZNER FAMILY ART GALLERY: First floor of Atherton Hall on the Pitzer College campus. Free admission. Tuesday through Friday, noon to 5 p.m. or by appointment throughout the year. 607-8797. —Through December 6: “Emerging Artist Series #8: Danielle Adair—“On the Rocks, in the Land.” The documentary-performance-video installation, “On the Rocks, In the Land” analyzes the role of ‘tourist-observer,’ within contemporary ‘conflict zones,’ and questions how a ‘tourist’ perceives and experiences sites of historic and contemporary political significance. The project incorporates experiences of and around the peace lines of Belfast, the Berlin Wall, the Stone Walls of New England, the United States-Mexican border in Ciudad Juárez and the Occupy Wall Street Movement. By highlighting these sites, the exhibition explores the notion of ‘play’ as a persistent and ethical form of resistance in relation to the physicality of a ‘wall’ as defined by these specific locations. Although exploring the intersection of place, politics and play in these sites, the project resists the urge to enforce a dominant narrative, seeking instead to excavate unfamiliar forms of resistance and protest. Lecture: “The War-related Murals of Northern Ireland 1979-2010.” Thursday, October 3 from 2:45 to 4 p.m. in West Hall Q120. Artist lecture: Danielle Adair Thursday, December 5 from 2:45 to 4 p.m. in the Lenzner Family Art Gallery. NICHOLS GALLERY: First floor of the Broad Center on the Pitzer College campus. Tuesday through Friday, noon to 5 p.m. or by appointment throughout the year. 607-8797. —Through December 5: “Glyphs: Acts of Inscription” builds on the premise that identities are constituted through acts of inscription—real or imagined—into the visual archives that constitute history, popular iconographies and artistic canons. The exhibition explores the consequences of such acts on the poetic and political dimensions of representation, difference and visibility. Working in photography, moving image and mixed media, the artists cannibalize and query such archives to create new image repertoires that point to the lacunae—the silences, absences and erasures—contained within prevalent visual-historical renderings. These critical interventions challenge existing discourses, destabilizing the deeply ambiguous and often surreal taxonomies of “raced, sexed and gendered” representation. Marking the 50th anniversary of the death of W.E.B. Du Bois, “Glyphs” presents a slideshow projection of “The Paris Albums 1900,” a series of portraits originally commissioned by the renowned African American sociologist, activist and scholar’s groundbreaking “American Negro Exhibit” for the 1900 Paris World Exposition. Du Bois’ quintessential counter-archive is positioned in dialogue with those created by the contemporary artists in “Glyphs.” PETTERSON MUSEUM OF INTERCULTURAL ART: 730 Plymouth Road, Pilgrim Place. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m. Contains collections of international fine art, folk art and material culture from 10,000 BCE to the present, contributed by Pilgrim Place residents and community friends, covering every continent. 399-5544. —Through November 25: “Stepping Out in Style,” an exhibition exploring the countless ways human beings have designed and worn footwear all over the planet.

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 Eu-

rope. 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.

Levitt on the Lawn to showcase Native American, folk music
Martha Redbone is set to perform tonight, September 27 at 5:30 p.m. This free event is part of the Levitt on the Lawn concert series presented by Pasadena's Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts and sponsored by alumna Elizabeth Levitt Hirsch '74. Since 2005, Levitt on the Lawn has brought 20 diverse musical performances to the Scripps College campus. The 21st event will feature the Martha Redbone Roots Project. Ms. Redbone's music flows equally from her own unique, award-winning blend of Native American elements with funk and her deep roots in Appalachian folk and Piedmont blues. The Roots Project is Redbone's tribute to her heritage and reflects a deep communion with the spirits of her ancestors. Her music resonates with the influence of her southeastern roots, echoing an earlier time/space through elements of folk, country gospel, stomp chants and the high lonesome of a front porch Sunday pickin’. Alongside her career as a recording artist and songwriter Ms. Redbone has maintained a steady involvement with causes she believes in, including an annual Traditional Music Workshop within the United Houma Nation's Cultural Enrichment Summer Camp program teaching grade school-age children the music from her Choctaw and Cherokee heritage as well as incorporating the tribe’s own Houma-French language. She has also given talks on subjects ranging from indigenous people’s rights to the role of arts in politics and on native identity. Her album, Skintalk, is part of the permanent collection at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian as an ex-

Said sale will be held on: OCTOBER 3, 2013, AT 10:30 A.M. *NEAR THE FOUNTAIN LOCATED AT 400 CIVIC CENTER PLAZA POMONA, CA 91766 At the time of the initial publication of this notice, the total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the above described Deed of Trust and estimated costs, expenses, and advances is $77,533.56. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 480-5690 or (800) 843-0260 ext 5690 or visit this Internet Web site: http://www.tacforeclosures.com/sales, using the file number assigned to this case V542818 V. 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. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder's sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the monies paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee or the Mortgagee's attorney. Date: September 4, 2013 T.D. SERVICE COMPANY as said Trustee, T.D.

of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $219,563.50. 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. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (619)590-1221 or visit the internet website www.dlppllc.com, using the file number assigned to this case 1383617-31. 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.
