Parking solutions
[Editors note: The following letter was
sent to city hall and the Claremont City
Council, with a copy forwarded for publication. KD]
Dear city leaders:
Im writing concerning the Claremont
Hills Wilderness Park parking overflow
into our adjacent rural neighborhoods.
The city has worked diligently with the
local residents by installing Parking By
Permit Only signage which, by the way,
is working great and needs to become a
permanent fixture. This signage has
greatly helped to reduce the impact of
additional people and traffic in our
neighborhoods. Thank you for that.
Any future additional parking should
be developed adjacent to the CHWP, not
in our neighborhoods. There is a huge
open space to the east of the CHWP
lower parking lot that can be utilized for
additional parking. Im sure you have
looked into that as a possible parking
area. Thank you.

Solidarity in Selma
Dear Editor:
Carolyn Gonzales praises the film
American Sniper for its Americanism,
for the heroism and solidarity of Americans. She misses the opportunity to say

IN HAIKU

the same about a film showing in an adjacent theater: Selma.


I prefer the solidarity and heroism of
those who marched across the bridge in
Selma without a gun in their hands, who
in the finest traditions of this country displayed their commitment to justice and
American ideals.

Lighthearted Lex
Dear Editor:
I am writing to express my appreciation and admiration for Mellissa Martinezs column, Lex in the City.
Always light-hearted, full of fun, full
of puns and wondrously educational, it is
a column I eagerly await each month.
Even as a person with a masters degree
in English, I learn something every time
I read it, and it cannot but help all the
readers of the COURIER increase their
knowledge of and appreciation for the
amazing varieties of words and word
histories in our polyglot language.
I have to believe that, in the most recent column, Ms. Martinezs spelling of
Dan Quale was intentional, especially
in the context of his famous misspelling
of potatoe. Keep up the column for
years, Ms. Martinez, and continue to educate, enlighten and entertain us.

Crime in Claremont on downward trend, Colleges up

laremont burglaries are


the lowest theyve been
since 1999 and, for the
second year in a row, the city
has experienced an overall four
percent reduction in Part I
crimes compared to the previous year, according to the
citys 2014 crime statistics.
The 2014 Part I Crime Data report
submitted by the Claremont Police Department (CPD) and received by city
council on January 27 is an overview of
the criminal offenses reported in Claremont during the previous calendar year.
The CPD participates in the Uniform
Crime Reporting (UCR) program, a nationwide, cooperative statistical effort
of nearly 17,000 law enforcement agencies that voluntarily report data on
crimes brought to their attention. The
UCR system divides those crimes into
two categories: Part I and Part II. Part I
crimes are comprised of crimes against
persons (murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault) and crimes against
property (burglary, theft, auto theft and
arson).
All other crimes are classified as Part
II.
Using the UCR system, the Claremont Police Department tracks crime in
three categories: incidents occuring in
the city with the exception of the Colleges, crimes taking place at the Claremont Colleges, and the city overall,
which includes the city and the Colleges reported together.
Looking at the city overall, there
were 39 crimes against persons reported in 2014 compared to 37 reported

in 2013, an increase of five percent.


Crimes against property saw a four percent decrease in 2014, with 859 crimes
reported as opposed to 899 crimes reported in 2013. Property crimes represented 96 percent of the crimes
reported in Claremont in 2014.
At the Colleges, crimes against persons increased with four reported rapes
in 2014 compared to one reported rape
in 2013. Thefts increased as well with
196 reported in 2014 compared with
140 reported the previous year.
Within the city-only category, there
was an overall reduction of 10 percent
in regards to property crimes, which includes a significant 40 percent decrease
in auto thefts and a 20 percent reduction in burglaries from 2013.
Residential burglaries in the city are
on the decline for the third year in a
row. There were 154 residential burglaries last year, compared to 159 in 2013,
a three percent decrease.
Commercial burglaries are also down
67 percent from the previous year, with
51 commercial burglaries reported in
2014.
Although crimes spiked at the Claremont Colleges last year, police credit a
joint effort with the community and the
Claremont Colleges Campus Safety
Department for their ability to have an
impact on crime city-wide. Watch
groups such as Claremont Crime Prevention Coalition, Keeping Good in the
Neighborhood, the Occidental Neighbors and the Wheeler Park Neighbors,
along with the Safe and Healthy Housing volunteer group have contributed to
the overall safety in Claremont, police
said.
The CPD crime fighting efforts are
also enhanced with the aide of technol-

Council to set city priorities


at annual workshop

he annual City Council Priorities

for 2015 include the Claremont water
system acquisition process, MS4
stormwater management, Wilderness
Park Master Plan and various economic
development projects.
The Council Priority Workshop is
also an opportunity for individual council members to place issues or initiatives before the council for discussion.
The workshop is open to the public
and resident feedback is welcomed during public comment. For those unable
to attend, the workshop will be
streamed live on the citys website.

ogy. The Automated License Plate


Reader (ALPR) continues to be a valuable resource, not only in catching
criminals before they commit new
crimes, but also to provide CPD with
additional leads to solve crimes when
they are committed within city limits.
Since its implementation in 2011,
Claremont police have located 19 adandoned stolen vehicles, 46 parked stolen
vehicles where a suspect was arrested
and 124 rolling stolen vehicles
stopped where the suspect was arrested.
Additionally, 79 arrests were made for
outstanding warrants as well as 22
other arrests as a result of the ALPR.
The CPD also recently added Bair
Analytics, a technology tool that allows
police to map crimes on the departments computers in the station as well

as in the officers cars in the field.


Watch commanders use the techology
to make note of crime trends while on
their shifts. Officers can also see what
crimes have occurred within their patrol
beat to watch for developing patterns.
In the future, theres hope this tool may
be used to forecast crime throughout
the city, the report said.
For the Claremont Police Department, the goal remains to be as proactive as possible, working with
community partners to educate and increase awareness in an effort to prevent
a return of significantly higher crime
rates.
If you suspect a crime is occurring,
please contact the Claremont Police
Department at (909) 399-5411.

Claremont police retrieve stolen goods from a vehicle after apprehending three
men last year in north Claremont.

CITY NEWS

Claremont COURIER/Friday, February 6, 2015

Its a do-over for the Old


School House signs
Construction began this week on retrofit improvements to the two multi-tenant monument
signs at the Old School House, located on Indian Hill and Foothill Boulevards, according to
the city managers report.
The signs have been removed and will be reinstalled sometime in mid-February.
The retrofit design received approval from
the architectural commission last summer, and
is intended to help address community concerns
and inconsistencies with the previous sign construction. Residents may remember some public
outcry when the 12-foot signs were first installed last July. Within weeks of construction,
passersby began complaining about intrusive
back lighting and loud fonts and a gaudy color
scheme, noting that the signs did not represent
the quality, spirit or vitality of the center.
While it is difficult to go back to the owner
and tenants to discuss how to make changes to a
sign that is already constructed, the sentiment
we received from the community was this has
to be fixed, James Sink, chair of the architectural commission, said at the time.
Significant changes are being made to the ceramic tiles and individual sign panels so that
they are more compatible with the adjacent
Citibank monument signs, although the basic
size and shape of the signs will remain the
same.

Workers contracted by the city of Claremont continue taking out trees along Foothill and Indian Hill Boulevards.
Most have been deemed dangerous due to poor health.Their removal is part of a larger plan for the maintanence
of Foothill within the city limits. Some traffic delays are to be expected, but no road closures.

driver was traveling north on Indian
Hill Boulevard around 12:11 p.m. when
she discovered an acceleration problem
with her Infiniti G37. She turned into

A bold burglar went right through the
front door of a Claremont residence in
broad daylight. Around 11:30 a.m., the
bandit broke a small hole in a decorative window on the door, unlocked the

rooms before making off with a jewelry
box located in the master bedroom. The

earrings, $200 in miscellaneous jewelry
and $400 in cash. The items have not

hallowed school grounds. While on

As one Claremont resident found
out, putting your belongings in a safe
doesnt mean they wont get stolen. Between noon and 4:30 p.m., unknown

thieves broke into a home located on

block of south Indian Hill Boulevard

Councilmember believes Claremont is on the right course


Editors note: In light of the cancellation of the March city
council election, the COURIER will offer a series of articles featuring each of our councilmembers. Over the coming weeks, we hope you enjoy getting to know your current
council a little better. KD

n unwavering commitment to ensuring the city lives within its


means while maintaining the values of the community has been Opanyi K.
Nasialis guiding principle.

In the four years hes served as a Claremont city


councilmember, Mr. Nasiali has worked in cooperation
with his colleagues and city staff to stabilize the citys
finances without increasing taxes, reform city pensions
and attract new business development as well as complete the Public Art Master Plan and an expansion to
Oak Park Cemetery.
In the last three years alone, this collaboration has
created a budget surplus of $5.9 million and increased
the citys rainy day reserves to 31 percent of the
budget. Its an impressive list of achievements for any
city council, particularly one that in the not-so-distant
past was faced with a multi-million dollar deficit.
I want the city to be solvent, says Mr. Nasiali. If
we dont live within our means, we cant do the things
we love to do, the things we value, the things we think
are important for the city. We can only do those things
if the city is fiscally sustainable. That, to me, should always be the cornerstone of city government.
After two previous unsuccessful runs for Claremont
City Council, Mr. Nasiali began serving his first term
in March 2011.
My mother used to tell me this, he says, If you
dont try, youve already lost.
This year, Mr. Nasiali, Sam Pedroza and Joe Lyons
were up for re-election, but when the candidate filing
period closed for the March 2015 Municipal Election
with no opposition to the incumbents, the councilmembers were reappointed to their positions.
Given the positive direction in which the city is
headed, Claremont residents sent a clear message. If
its not broken, dont fix it.
But just because the city council is enjoying a
tremendous amount of success doesnt necessarily
mean that there arent opposing viewpoints.
Were not all in agreement in everything, but the
one thing we do as a council is respect each other, Mr.
Nasiali explains. Youll never see us screaming at
each other. We may disagree on things but we respect
each others opinions.
And with his no-nonsense approach to city issues,
Mr. Nasiali is far from your typical politician.
Sometimes people think Im not very diplomatic. I
dont sugarcoat things. I dont like to play games, he
explains. I believe in a good democracy there should

Councilmember Opanyi Nasiali believes that public service is part of ones civic duty and should not be looked
at as a way to get ahead or as a career.

be discussion of issues and people proposing solutionsotherwise we have complacency, and I dont
believe in complacency.
In spite of the never-ending challenges, Mr. Nasiali
continues to focus on whats good for the community
and perseveres with the belief that good public policy
that lives up to its goals is a reflection of a job well
done.
When I see the vibrancy of the city, when I see people who may not agree with me but like how I handled
something, when I hear that sentiment in the community, thats what makes me feel good.
Mr. Nasiali has a longstanding commitment to public service that spans two continents. The eldest of 10
children, Mr. Nasiali was born and raised in rural
Kenya during the height of British Colonial rule and
worked for the Kenyan Parliament before coming to
the United States to study urban planning at California
State University, Northridge.
It was there he met his wife of 40 years, Kathryn.
Mr. Nasiali went on to receive his masters in urban
planning and public administration and, following
graduation, returned to Kenya to work for several municipalities. He and Kathryn would later return to California where he worked in the private sector in land development and as a consultant for site acquisition and
government approvals of telecommunication projects.
The couple moved to Claremont in 1986 where they

raised their daughter, Minayo. They continue to call the


City of Trees home.
For his second act with the city council, Mr. Nasiali
is ready to tackle the goals not yet achieved during his
first term. The final acquisition of the Claremont water
system remains a major piece of unfinished business
along with the a new police facility, the Wilderness
Park Master Plan, the Foothill Boulevard Master Plan,
Jocelyn Center expansion and the Public Art Master
Plan.
I want Claremont to become the public art destination city in the region, says Mr. Nasiali. Public art is
good for business because when people come into the
city, theyll eat at the restaurants, theyll shop in the
Village and other commercial areas, theyll walk the
Colleges and theyll eat again. Thats what makes the
city vibrant.
Although Mr. Nasiali looks to the future with regards to the city, his dedication to public service and
his passion to serve the people of Claremont is a true
reflection of his past.
I came to this country as an immigrant and a student, and this country was good to me. Part of why I do
this is my saying thank you for the things this country
has given me, he says. Im living the American
dream in the true sense of it and so, for that, I want to
contribute something in a small way. Angela Bailey

Never too old to be radical


by John Pixley

here were people who wrote letters


saying that the college students
who gathered in front of city hall a
couple months ago to protest the killings
of unarmed black men by police in Ferguson, Missouri and New York Cityas
well protesting the grand juries opting not
to indict the officers in a couple of these
caseswere advocating lawlessness and
stirring up trouble in Claremont.

There were people who said the same thing about


Occupy Claremont a couple years ago, claiming that
the people camped out in front of city hall were lazy
and shifty, a dangerous presence in Claremont.
I wonder what they would say about all the troublemakers gathered at the Claremont United Church of
Christ two Saturdays ago?
There were a lot of them. I think Claremont United
Church of Christ is Claremonts biggest church as well
as its oldest but, even if it isnt, its pretty big and it was
full that afternoon.
Some people there had marched with Martin Luther
King, Jr. from Selma to Birmingham, Alabama, in an
effort to get black people the right to vote in the 1960s
(as powerfully depicted in the film Selma). People
there had worked with Caesar Chavez in the endeavor
for farm laborers to have decent working conditions
and the right to unionize. Also present were people
who have helped Native Americans in their struggle to
achieve rights and dignity in this land that was taken
from them.
There was also a performance that afternoon in the
church, a performance that honored and illustrated all
this work and struggle. The performance by the Albert
McNeil Jubilee Singers, which celebrated the works of
Martin Luther King, Jr., was held about a week after the
celebration of the slain civil rights activists birthday.
Yes, there was wonderful and stunning singing by
the Los Angeles group founded and directed by Albert

observer
McNeil. There were stirring renditions of gospel and
gospel-tinged songs like Aint Gonna Let Nobody
Turn Me Around, Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child and Wade in the Water. Some of the
songs, including a couple from a cantata called
Changed My Name by Linda Twine, were less
known but no less breathtaking.
But this wasnt just a concert by a good choir. Along
with the songs, there was powerful narration, telling the
story of African Americans, starting in 1863 with slavery and the auction block before fast-forwarding to the
civil rights movement in the 1960s. Mr. Kings efforts,
including the march from Selma, were focused on, and
there were excerpts from his letter from the Birmingham jail, his I have a dream speech and the Ive
been to the mountain top speech given on the night
before his assassination.
In addition, the hour-long production included choreography, with the singers acting out scenes featuring
Rosa Parks and other bus riders, beatings, shootings
and marches, among other scenes. Instead of being
awkward and corny, this acting-out was remarkably effective. Indeed, it was a productionconceived, choreographed and directed by Douglas Griffin, with
assistance from Nell Walker. It packed quite a wallop.
All of this, not just the moving performance, but also
the large audience in the church, was in honor of James
and Louilyn Hargett as part of Pilgrim Places centennial celebration this year. The afternoon program was a
celebration of the activism evident in the work, and the
continuing work, of the Hargetts and the other former
ministers and church workers who live in this unique,
now 100-year-old retirement community in Claremont.
The performance celebrating Mr. King, so close to
his birthday, was most appropriate for honoring the

Hargetts and Pilgrim Place in its hundredth year. As


was noted in a concluding tribute, the Hargetts and the
other Pilgrims may well be retired, but theyre not too
tired to work for justice.
Yes, the residents of Pilgrim Place put on their delightful fundraising festival every fallcertainly a
massive undertakingand they have nice art shows
and teas. But they do so much more and so many more
important things.
I dont know if they were participating in the protest
front of city hall late in the fall, but they are wellknown for standing on the corner of Arrow Highway
and Indian Hill Boulevard in a vigil for peace each Friday afternoon. They were not camping in front of city
hall, but they were behind the scenes during Occupy
Claremont, providing food, showers and beds to sleep
in now and then for the participants.
And, in the last year, they have been involved in the
effort to provide overnight shelter for the homeless at
the Claremont Quaker meetinghouse. Along with providing this leadership, the Pilgrims have assisted in
there being more meals for the homeless in Claremont.
There have been those who say that the peace vigils
have been unpatriotic, and there is no doubt some
grumbling that the homeless (or more homeless)
shouldnt be attracted to Claremont with free food and
shelter. Many would rather see the homeless simply
kept out of Claremont.
But there were plenty of people who didnt like Martin Luther Kings efforts to help African Americans get
the right to vote and other civil rights. More significantly, Mr. King did much more than preach non-violence, and even those who admired this work didnt
appreciate it when he spoke out against the war in Vietnam and white privilege and spoke up for black
garbage men.
Yes, it is nice and it is easy to remember the I have
a dream speech and non-violence preaching, and its
nice and easy to remember the Pilgrim Place Festival.
But, especially during this Black History Month and
during this Pilgrim Place centennial year, there is lots
more speaking out and hard work to remember and celebrate.

Does this have something to do with borders?

Pitbull attack must be handled


[Editors note: The following letter was
addressed to the Inland Valley Humane
Society, with copies forwarded to the
Claremont City Council. KD]
Dear Humane Society:
What is humane about allowing a vicious dog, which has attacked and killed
a smaller dog, another chance? A chance
for what? To kill another dog or a cat or
a small child? I was astounded to learn
that we now have a two strikes law for
savage domesticated animals. If the owners cannot control the animal, how are
they to be rehabilitated after their first
strike? Will we send them to prison for
life or hospitalize them and give them
therapy to cure them of their violent behavior?
I was stunned and grieved to learn that
our miniature poodles best buddy was attacked five days ago by a pit bull that
lived nearby and had somehow escaped from its yard. Cosmo was a beautiful little white miniature poodle and
was unfailingly good-natured and sweet.
He was attacked in our own private park
by this beast who took his life, despite
Cosmos owners valiant attempts to save
him.
Cosmos owners were told that this pit
bull could not be euthanized because he
had only one strike against him. He had
already attacked another dog but since the
attack took place at Pooch Park, it didnt
count. Why are we allowing these dangerous animals to be sheltered even
though they have murdered our pets?
My own miniature poodle was attacked in this same private park on November 3, just three months ago by two

READERS COMMENTS

large dogs that had gotten loose.


My dog was lucky because I was able
to grab the attackers collar and wrestle
with it, screaming all the while for help.
My dog was on a leash, but she pulled it
out of my hand in fear as I was trying to
get the attacker off her neck. She got
away and ran to our garage and, fortunately, the second dog did not follow and
attack her in there.
Miraculously, we were saved by two
neighbors who heard my cries and came
out to return the attacker to its owner
while I took my bloodied dog to the vet
for her injuries. She survived. Cosmo
was not so fortunate, and he suffered immensely, despite the heroic efforts by the
veterinarian to save him.
In both cases, the owners of the attacking dogs paid for the veterinary care
but paying for care in no way absolves
the owner of responsibility for the injury
or death of a beloved pet. And no amount
of money can replace Cosmo.
I am grieving for Cosmo, who was the
dearest and most delightful of pets. His
owners are grieving and this entire community should be grieving the loss of our
safe neighborhoods. That pit bull killed a
beloved pet. It could have killed a child
your child or grandchild. Think about it.
And it is still being given a reprieve.
Even human criminals who kill are
locked up somewhere.
Now I am afraid to walk my dog in our
private park or to take her to the Claremont Pooch Park. We should not be
forced to live in fear of dangerous do-

mesticated animals in our midst but that


is what has happened here in Claremont
and, I am sure, in many other communities. It is not even sane behavior to allow
a dog who would make an unprovoked
attack and kill another animal to live in
our neighborhoods. Why are we allowing
it? Who has made this rule? Did the community have any input? Was it voted into
law? What can I do to remove this danger from our city?
I am so angry and disappointed in our
inhumane Humane Society for allowing this to happen. The problem needs to
be addressed now before another tragedy
occurs.

Money in politics

Dear Editor:
Earlier this month marked the fifth anniversary of Citizens United and we recently saw the announcement that the
Koch brothers intend to raise and spend
more money on the upcoming presidential election than the two major political
parties.
The response at the national level has
ranged from calls for more disclosure
and strict coordination rules to abolition
of candidate contribution limits to allow
the parties and candidates to compete
with these independent efforts.
The League of Women Voters has
formed a Money in Politics Committee
that has been hard at work. Our members
and others must understand the legal and

political underpinnings of the rise of independent political actors. While the decision in Citizens United did not create
this phenomenon, it certainly turbocharged the spending by these shadowy
outside groups.
In addition to educating ourselves, the
league is working to limit the influence of
dark money. Last year, the league submitted comments to the IRS on its proposed rule strictly limiting the political
activity of 501(c)(4) organizations. The
comments were praised and while the
IRS withdrew the proposed rule, we expect another attempt to control 501(c)
organizations in the future. The league
also commented on new FEC rules and
will continue to comment as the FEC addresses Citizens United.
The league expects that the current
congress will introduce legislation to address the worst abuses. We must continue to push for reforms on disclosure,
limits on coordination and public financing for congressional elections.
Money in politics is a pervasive problem at all levels of government and while
the prospects for passing meaningful reform now may be bleak in congress, opportunities to make inroads at the state
and local levels do exist. The league can
play an important role in making our politics more transparent and responsive.
In the end, the only lasting antidote
for floods of money in our elections is
floods of voters at the polls. The leagues
effort in registering and informing voters
continues to be, as it has for the past 95
years, the best approach to making
democracy work!

Tree workshop

Dear Editor:
The Claremont City Council Tree Policy Workshop
was a landmark meeting. The council provided leadership to address key problems.
Pruning: Culminating a long review of the citys
tree pruning policies, the council allocated more
funds to have a city arborist monitor pruning to make
the hybrid approach more successful. In this way, the
city will be able to strategically select what needs
pruning, while efficiently covering the city grid on a
regular basis.
Poisonous Pesticides : Because the EPAs testing
and evaluation of poisonous pesticides such as
Roundup (used to treat weeds in city parks) is
wrought with poor science, the city must act to prevent risks to public health. This is especially important as we implement the MS4 Program to clean up
runoff and work to gain control of our potable water
system which draws water from wells.
Independent studies, done throughout the world,
show that there are considerable risks to the health of
people due to serious effects of these poisons. Claremont needs to eliminate their use to avoid risks.
After a long discussion, the city council resolved to
move towards eliminating the use of poisonous pesticides in Claremont, particularly for cosmetic purposes
such as weed control. The council will begin by reviewing landscape maintenance contracts which are
up for renewal in April.
The city council will also have staff look at ways of
reducing turf areas and use more mulch to save water

and avoid the use of poisonous pesticide. This will be
incorporated into the improvements to be made to
Foothill Boulevard. Claremont needs to make sure
that the plan will, in fact, have these improvements as
well as meet the MS4 requirements for capturing and
cleansing urban runoff.
Urban Forest Master Plan: Many trees in Claremont are dying due to drought, disease and age.
Claremont needs to develop a Forest Master Plan to
determine the best ways to regenerate and sustain the
many benefits trees provide our community. City staff
is pursuing a grant to get funds for an Urban Forest
Master Plan. Claremont also has opportunities work
with the Colleges and develop a tree inventory and
evaluation that would help educate people about the
communitys trees so they become more aware of the
wonderful resources we have.
The Urban Forest Master Plan will be an important
part of our green infrastructure. This will need to be
carefully coordinated with the Foothill Boulevard improvements as well as the Wilderness Park Preservation Plan to help Claremont address a changing
climate.
At the workshop, Linda Heilpern spoke briefly
about Michaels Memorial Tree and how it can symbolize cooperation and positive change in our community.

Dr. Charles Mervin Russell, Jr.

OBITUARIES

Dedicated pastor, pilot and missionary


Dr. Charles Mervin Russell, Jr., who
resided in Upland and Claremont, died on
January 22, 2015 in Pomona. He was 93.
He was born on December 12, 1921 in
Miami, Florida to Ouida and Charles
Mervin Russell. After graduating from
high school in Florida, he attended
Greenville College in Greenville, Illinois
and Ausburg College in Minneapolis,
Minnesota before completing a bachelors
degree at Bethany College in Lindsborg,
Kansas. Dr. Russell received an honorary
Doctor of Divinity degree from Azusa Pacific University.
Dr. Russell served as a pastor in four
Free Methodist Churches, then as a conference superintendent of the Minnesota,
North Iowa Conference of the Free
Methodist Church, a regional director of
Free Methodist Youth and general superintendent of the International Free

Methodist Youth.
Following his time of service with
FMY, he was called to become president
of World Gospel Crusades, a mission organization in Upland dedicated to spreading the word of Christ to people throughout the world. He later founded and served
as president of Mercy Airlift, Inc. in Ontario, delivering desperately needed food
and medical supplies as well as Gospels of
John to troubled countries around the
world.
Dr. Russell, known as Merv to friends
and family, was publisher and editor of
several Christian publications such as
Youth in Action Magazine and Living Waters Notebook. He has authored three
books, the most recent of which, My Angel Flew Along, shared many aspects of
his flying ministry. He flew many planes
throughout his life, including a DC3 he piloted all the way to Ethiopia and on many
flights to Central and South America. Be-

cause of his love for flying, he was also a


chaplain in the Civil Air Patrol. When
Merv and his wife Leone retired, they
ministered, living in Baja, California and
Mexico. His plane literally became a lifeline for that whole area when torrential
floods wiped out the roads leading north to
Ensenada and Tijuana.
Dr. Russell was preceded in death by his
son Mervin Dean Russell, who died in
2010. He is survived by his lovely wife of
72 years, Martha Leone; by his daughters,
Joyce Landrey of Claremont and Janice
Edwards of La Mesa, California; and by
his grandchildren, Deanna Wasserman of
West Sacramento, Dr. Christopher Landrey of East Tawas, Michigan, Dr. Justin
Irving of Minneapolis, Minnesota, April
Amoroso of Arroyo Grande, California,
Michael Russell of Yucaipa, California
and Jason Russell of West Sacramento. Dr.
Russell also leaves 15 great-grandchildren.

Kenneth E. Price
Kenneth E. Price died peacefully on
January 24, 2015 at his home in Claremont at the age of 95.
A celebration of Mr. Prices life will
be held at his home on Saturday, February 28. In lieu of flowers, donations may

be made to the VNA Hospice & Palliative Care of Southern California, 150 W.
First St., Ste. 270, Claremont, CA 91711.
A full account of Mr. Prices life will
be included in a future edition of the
COURIER.

Richard Boly Whitham

11

OBITUARIES

Dedicated teacher and coach, true-blue Dodger fan


Richard Boly Whitham died comfortably on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 in
Claremont after a short illness. He was 80.
He was a very humble man who loved
his church, his family, his duplicate
bridge, his German shepherd dogs, his
sports and his Dodgers.
He was born in 1934 in Pomona to
John Leroy Whitham and Sylvia Caroline
Whitham. His parents had four sons, with
Rick being the youngest after John,
Charles and Paul. The four boys were
very close in ageonly five years separated their agesand were always active
in sports, pushing each other to compete at
their optimum level.
Rick attended Claremont High School,
graduating in 1952. He excelled in football and basketball, earning numerous
honors. He attended Chaffey Junior College in Ontario for one year before moving on to Fresno State University. He
graduated from Fresno State in 1956 and
received his masters degree from Azusa
Pacific University.
He married Leilah Ann Herold in 1961
and had three children, Richard Aaron in
1962, Sean Adam in 1963 and Aimee Lee
in 1969. The family lived in Pomona until
1963, when they moved to Claremont.
They divorced in 1972.
Mr. Whitham worked as a teacher after
graduating college. He also coached multiple youth football, track and basketball
teams during his teaching career. His
longest tenure of teaching was at El Roble

Intermediate School, where he taught


upper division math classes. In all, he
taught for 36 years, 27 of those at El
Roble. He retired on his 60th birthday in
1994. He also helped make the streets of
Claremont and southern California safer
by teaching drivers education for Claremont High School.
In 1972, Rick met Dorothy Lois Peck
of North Platte, Nebraska. They married
in 1974 in Claremont and have lived there
since. In their 40 years together, the two
have been obedient servants of the Claremont Presbyterian Church, attending
services every week. Mr. Whitham was a
charter member of the church. He also
volunteered his time at the church as an

usher most Sundays, and as an elder. With


his strong mathematic mind, he also
helped to process the tithes and bookkeeping in the church office for a number
of years.
Rick and Dorothy enjoyed traveling together to Dana Point, California regularly,
a special spot for both of them. They also
enjoyed a number of weeklong beach vacations with the families of their sons in
Oceanside, California, which they undertook every other year.
Mr. Whitham was an animal lover,
cherishing family pets throughout most of
his life. His special love was German
shepherd dogs. He loved and cared for his
shepherds by working them regularly
each day with jogs and walks, and feeding
them heartily.
Rick became a bridge-playing expert in
his middle and later life. He played competitively each week at the La Fetra Center in Glendora, California, where he
excelled and reached the Life Master and
Bronze Life Master of duplicate bridge in
2003. He and Dorothy also enjoyed
weekly bridge groups with friends and
family.
Mr. Whitham has three children and six
grandchildren and was always very supportive in all of their artistic and athletic
activities. He could often be seen watching his kids or grandkids at baseball diamonds, basketball gymnasia and football,
soccer and track fields, always offering a
helpful tip after each game.

Since sports played a large role in his


life, he had two teams that he was very
close to: the Claremont High School varsity football team and the Los Angeles
Dodgers. During high school football season, Mr. Whitham would go to every
CHS game, whether it was a home game
or at another faraway high school. He had
good friends who would often join him at
these games. It was a Friday night ritual.
Being able to enjoy watching his son
Adam participate, and excel, in this ritual
for a few years made it even sweeter.
Rick was a true-blue Dodger fan. He
was always asking for their results and
wanted to discuss their play and clubhouse moves with anyone who was interested. He would take his family to Dodger
games each year. He loved being out in
the sun, watching the Dodgers and eating
Dodger Dogs.
He is survived by his wife of 40 years,
Dorothy; his brother Charles; his three
children, Aaron (Susie Brinkama), Adam
(Leslie) and Aimee Tracy; and six grandchildren, Katja, Jake, Delana, Addison,
Ben and Taylor.
Services will be held on Saturday, February 14 at 10:30 a.m. at the Claremont
Presbyterian Church, located 1111 N.
Mountain Ave. in Claremont.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests
that donations be made to the Claremont
Presbyterian Church or to the City of
Claremont Community Senior Services
Enrichment Program.

the third president of the college. He


weighed in on Mr. Welsh, who he
worked under for a while, in the CMC
tribute.
Pete was a vital part of CMC, Mr.
Stark said. He was known by all alumni
and the board as a terrific guy and as the

best athlete in the history of this institution.


Pete was the loving patriarch of a
large family with deep roots in Claremont. He divided as much of his free
time as possible between the family
cabin in Florence, Oregon and in Hawaii
at Magic Sands Beach. Pete was a lifelong student of the American West and
reader of US history. On a lighter note,
he loved Louis LAmour novels and
John Wayne movies.
His memory will be held in our
hearts and he will be deeply missed by
all who were touched by his life, family
shared.
Mr. Welshs 63-year marriage to
Nancy, who died four years ago, leaves a
legacy of six sons, Stanton III, Fredrick,
Stephen, Henry, Stuart and Douglas. He
is also survived by nine grandchildren,
four great-grandchildren and his
younger brother, John Welsh.
A memorial service will be held
today, Friday, February 6 at 2:30 p.m. at
the Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests
that donations be made in Pete Welshs
memory to the Pacesetters Memorial
Fund. Checks may be sent payable to
Claremont McKenna College, c/o 400
N. Claremont Blvd., Claremont CA
91711. Or, you can donate online at
www.cmc.edu/giving.

Stanton Parks Welsh


CMC administrator, veteran, loving father
Stanton Welsh, known to his friends
and colleagues as Pete, died peacefully on January 26, 2015 at the Claremont Manor where he resided for the
past 15 years. He was 89.
He was born in Binghamton, New
York on August 23, 1925 and moved
west at an early age with his mother and
father, Ruth and Stanton Sr., to
Pasadena. Pete grew up surrounded by
orange groves at the foot of the San
Gabriel Mountains and graduated from
South Pasadena High School in 1943.
Mr. Welsh served in the United States
Army Air Corps during World War II as
a B-29 flight engineer. After discharge
from the army, he took advantage of his
GI benefits and enrolled at the fledgling
Claremont Mens College where he met
and later married the girl of his dreams,
Pomona College coed Nancy Holman.
Mr. Welsh had an outstanding athletic
career playing for Pomona-Claremont
teams. At CMC he lettered in basketball,
track & field, tennis and football. In
1989, he was elected as the first inductee
in the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (CMS)
Athletic Hall of Fame. He is holder of
CMCs longest-lasting record, the long
jump record he achieved and held for an
amazing 57 years from 1949-2006. Pete
was an avid tennis player, nationally
ranked in the top 10 for much of his life,
and in 1992 won the USTA National

Mens Indoor Singles Championship.


A recent CMC tribute noted that Mr.
Welsh will always be considered the
foundation of CMS Mens Track &
Field.
He graduated cum laude as a distinguished military student with the class of
1950, the first class to graduate from
CMC. After a brief sojourn back to the
east coast seeking career opportunities,
at the behest of college founder Dr.
George C. S. Benson, Mr. Welsh and his
young family returned to Claremont
where he began his long career at CMC
as assistant to the president. He cofounded the Pacesetters, a dedicated
group of early graduates of CMC, and
became a driving force in the development of the college. His long and storied
career as vice president of Claremont
McKenna College spanned 36 years.
During his tenure, Mr. Welsh forged
relationships, nurtured development and
promoted his beloved CMC. He served
as a member of the Alumni Association
and the McKenna College Board of
Trustees. In 1991, he was awarded an
honorary Doctor of Law degree and
upon his retirement retained the title of
Vice President Emeritus. He remained
actively involved in the college and up
until recently could be found at Stag
games and myriad college functions.

la minute boasts three locations in
southern California, all of which serve
up their crafty liquid nitrogen concoctions. It all starts with 100 percent organic ingredients, locally sourced
whenever possible. Next comes the
cold stuff. As they describe it on their
website, Liquid nitrogen is simply nitrogen (which make up 78 percent of
our atmosphere) in a liquid state. It is 321 degrees and is obviously very
cold.

When applied to the ice cream ingredients, the liquid nitrogen produces a
magical outcome. Using liquid nitrogen to make ice cream minimizes the
size of the ice crystals and results in a
much creamier ice cream, the company explains. With a relatively small
menu, la minute is able to produce
some intriguing flavor combinations
while still keeping the integrity of the
ingredients. Some of their unique mixtures include chocolate lavender, olive
oil vanilla bean and strawberry balsamic. Each creation is topped off with
some ingenious ingredients. The chocoHOT AND COLD/next page

late lavender in particular is coated with cocoa nibs


and honey, so ice cream eaters are actually creating
chocolate in their mouths.
This new cold fusion trend is gaining fans among
foodies everywhere, including Veronica Sepulveda,
who works in Claremont. The unique flavors blend
well and the fact that they make it fresh in front of you
enhances the experience, she says.
A little too cold out for ice cream? Guests need only
slide to the left side of the counter to indulge in one of
Augies coffee creations.
If you are looking for a Starbucks-style coffee, you
have come to the wrong place. Augies Coffee Roasters
is all about bringing a new level of excellence to all
facets of coffee production. Their commitment to this
cause extends beyond the coffee shop to the farms
where the beans are grown.
We want to encourage good growing and farming
techniques by purchasing only the highest grades of
coffee and by supporting importers that offer fair
and/or direct trade to hardworking farmers, notes
Augies website.
Each of Augies three locations serve a wide selection of coffee drinks whose beans have gone through
an intense and loving roasting process. This includes a
turn through their roasting machine followed by a
round in the agitator. Beans are then inspected and
sampled to make sure they meet the Augies high standards. Once they are deemed worthy, the baristas get to
work using a variety of techniques to create their artisan coffee creations.
I like the cinnamon-honey-soy, and my husband
Brian is absolutely obsessed with their lavender latte!
The place itself has a cool vibelots of young people
hanging out, says Iris Marquardt Johnson, co-owner
of Claremonts Ilo Collective.
While both establishments have thrived individually,
it is the creative combination that is thrilling visitors.
Everyone loves coffee and ice cream. It is a fun dynamic playing off each others energy, says Mr.
Amento.
This symbiotic relationship goes as far as offering a
show-stopping coffee ice cream float, a local favorite.
So whether you are in the mood for a warm drink or
a frosty treat, this dynamic duo has you covered. To
find out more, visit www.augiescoffeehouse.com and

Claremont bids adieu to some businesses, welcomes others

he past year has seen


significant changes in
Claremonts business
scene. A number of places
have closed their doors including Casa del Salsa, a Mexican
restaurant that graced the
Claremont Schoolhouse property for more than a decade.

Owners Roberto and Judy Flores


said goodbye to customers in November of 2014, after the property owner
refused to renew their lease. The Floreses say they hope to open another
restaurant in Claremont. Meanwhile,
those fond of Michael Ryans live
music performances at the Casa can
catch the local guitarist on Wednesday
evenings, from 6 to 9 p.m., at Walters
restaurant.
Claremont also lost the Peruvian
restaurant Inka Trails, which for 15
years drew foodies to its Foothill
Boulevard location. The owners are
still busy serving up South American
cuisine at their La Verne eatery, Caral
Peruvian Grill. The Claremont site
(1077 W Foothill Blvd.) is now home
to Jeni Wrens Caf.
Another Foothill Boulevard restaurant Sushi Cruise, which was situated
in a boat-shaped building, has also
closed its doors. But thats not the end
of the restaurant reductions.
The Pita Pit, located on Indian Hill in
the Village West, closed and has been
replaced by a new Indian restaurant
called Tikka, specializing in commuterfriendly fare such as wraps and curry
bowls. The owners of Tikka, Ray Malik
and Rafi Kahn, formerly ran a Fatburger in Temecula. They are now betting on Claremont and doubling down,
with plans to open a custom-made
pizza restaurant called Pie Street, right
next to Pita Pit, in a couple of weeks.
In a city that has long discouraged
fast food restaurants, the Burger King
on Indian Hill Boulevard had been a
mecca for those looking to stave off the
munchies. The King is dead, having recently shut its doors. Softening the
blow is the fact a Popeyes chicken
restaurant has taken its place.
Changes in retail
he yarn store Colors 91711,
which was located in the freestanding brick building on the
corner of Harrison and Bonita avenues,
closed on January 12. The shops
neighboring business Rio de Ojas, a
gift shop specializing in Mexican folk
art, has moved into the unoccupied
space, adding 600 square feet to the
900 square feet in which owners Ray
and Terri Riojas were previously operating. Crimson Cottage, a boutique located in the Old School House
complex, is currently in the process of
closing.

George Khoury and his partner William Farber opened the skateboard shop Stix in Claremonts Village West five months
ago. This is the second location for the two men, who have been in business in Monrovia for 17 years.

Julie Hoffman prepares one of the more popular dishes recently at the new Indian
restaurant Tikka in Claremonts Village West. The shop is one of several to open
recently along the west side of Indian Hill Boulevard.
All of the food at Tikka Indian restaurant
in Claremont is made to order, including the popular chicken tikka masala,
which cost $6.99.

the Claremont Business Park in July.


The Zoom Room, a business specializing in dog training in the Old School
House, also closed after a short run.
Creating popular destinations
s the saying goes, when a door
closes, a window opens. A
number of new establishments
have hung out a shingle in Claremont,
including two side-by-side shops in the
Village West area, the music-themed
clothing boutique Playlist Clothing and
the Stix Ride Shop. They are located at

175 N. Indian Hill Blvd.


Longtime friends Melissa Robles
and Wendy Shay opened Playlist Clothing on June 28 with the aim of demonstrating how music inspires fashion and
vice versa.
You can make a playlist to match
whatever your mood may be and that is
similar to how you dress and style
yourself for the day, Ms. Robles said.
You may be feeling like downtown
girl one day, a rocker chick another day
and a bohemian girl another day.
Music is in evidence everywhere in
the store, from the record albums that
line the walls to clothing inspired by
musicians. Current merchandise includes shirts celebrating musicians like
Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix and Simon

and Garfunkel for men and women and


T-shirts for children saluting performers like Nirvana and Johnny Cash.
Stix Ride Shop owners George
Khoury and Bill Farber already had a
location in Monrovia when they decided to test the waters of Claremont.
Claremont has a skatepark, and a long
tradition of producing top-level skaters,
yet it hasnt had its own skate shop, so
this was a natural move.
The store already has a regular in the
form of Anthony Ortiz, an El Roble
seventh grader who stopped in recently
to pick up a cool beanie.
I like to come in here and look
around, he said, and adds a bit of advice to kids looking to try skateboardBUSINESS/next page

ing for the first time. Its not that


hard.
Stix is crammed with the brands of
shoes and clothes skaters tend to favor,
including Vans, Thrasher and Creature.
Brands of skateboards and decks
many in the $40 rangecarried by Stix
include Toy Machine, Baker, Habitat
and Girl.
Paint and Paddles is another Claremont newcomer, a do-it-yourself haven
where customers can have their furniture restored by experts or learn to restore it themselves at workshops. The
store is located at 218 W. Foothill Blvd.
next to the Ivy House.
Sanamluong Thai Cuisine just moved
into town, migrating from Indian Hill

Boulevard in Pomona to 710 S. Indian


Hill Boulevard in Claremont. Augies
Coffee House and the la minute ice
creamery have set up shop shared space
at the Claremont Packing House.
Anyone familiar with the City of
Trees knows it could easily be called
the city of spas, because Claremont is a
hotspot for salons and wellness-oriented
businesses.
The city recently issued a moratorium on the establishment of new massage parlors in Claremont while city
staff reviews rules dealing with such
businesses. A draft ordinance is expected to go before the planning commission in March. The city has also
leveled another moratorium on the
opening of new hair salons on any
street-level building in the Claremont

15

Village. The latter action was taken due


to what is viewed as an over-saturation
of salons in the area.
Nevertheless, health- and beauty-oriented boutiques were a large part of last
years business boom. Claremont Wellness Spa, located at 689 W. Foothill
Blvd., Suite D., is now providing specialized skin care. Another newcomer
that opened last summer is Ilo Collective, a modern apothecary.
Ilo (101 N. Indian Hill Blvd.) specializes in skin and hair care products, cosmetics and scents crafted with an eye on
substituting organic ingredients for
harmful chemicals and on high performance. The shop stocks an array of
internationally-known apothecary
brands like the RMS Beauty cosmetic
line, and locally crafted wares like
Asian-inspired soaps by Unearth Malee,
which are produced in Claremont.
This is just a partial representation of
the Claremont businesses that have
come and gone in recent months. Look
for more stories on Claremonts
bustling business scene in future editions of the COURIER.

With Candlelights Buddy, musical love is sure to come your way

n the song American Pie,


Don McLean mourns the
deaths of Buddy Holly,
Ritchie Valens and J.P.
Richardson aka The Big Bopper, dubbing their 1959 plane
crash the day the music died.

These pioneering musicians, who


were touring together, may have died
tragically youngHolly was 22, while
Valens was only 17. Fortunately for
rock n roll fans, however, these pioneering musicians left behind songs
that are beloved to this day. The catalogue of Buddy Holly, who critic
Bruce Eder has called the single most
influential creative force in early rock
n roll is a particularly rich legacy.
Buddy Holly is being brought to life
locally four times a week, six counting
matinees, with The Candlelight Pavilions presentation of Buddy: The
Buddy Holly Story. It runs through
February 22.
Its an exuberant tribute to the
Everyday singer, known for his
horn-rimmed glasses, heart-on-hissleeve hits, experimental production
values and unflagging devotion to
rock n roll.
The Candlelight has picked a winner
in the form of its star, Jared Manusco.
While he has played Buddy Holly in
several productions around the country, this is his first time at The Candlelight Pavilion. He does an uncanny job
of channeling Buddys singing and
guitar playing and his nerdy charm
(one of the lanky musicians mentors
accuses him of having about as much
sex appeal as a telegraph pole.)
Holly is known for his nasal and hiccup-punctuated voice, which despite
its quirks takes listeners on a smooth
ride. However, Mr. Manusco, who
learned guitar by strumming along to
golden oldies as a teen, says thats just
the start of Hollys appeal.
Dont forget the growl, which you
can really hear him do in Reddy
Teddy, he said, adding that, despite
appearances, Buddy Holly didnt become an icon by not being cool.

Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story is now showing at The Candlelight Pavilion in

choices, and the heartwarming. The latter includes his whirlwind romance and
marriage to Maria Elena Santiago, for
whom he wrote the hushed romantic
masterpiece True Love Ways.
Even while showcasing Holly on
stage once more with The Big Bopper
and Valenz, and illustrating the anticipation he and Maria Elena feel during her
pregnancy with their first child, there is
an inevitable ominousness to the musical. The story, after all, ends with a
calamity that left countless music lovers
feeling firsthand the sentiment in Hollys
Its Raining in My Heart.
The crash, however, is handled sensitively and the overarching tone of
the show is one of enjoyment of timeless music and reverence for Hollys
talent. After a standing ovation, last
Fridays performance of the musical
ended with an encore performance of
All of My Love.
Chino Hills resident Glee Hoskins
came to last Fridays show accompanied by three friends who hail from the
same city; the group has dubbed themselves the Chino Chix.
I grew up with this music and its almost like watching the real Buddy
Holly, Ms. Hoskins said of the production. Its wonderful. [Mr. Manusco] is amazing.

CHS wrestling future remains bright, even after loss

he Claremont High
School wrestling team
lost its Palomares
League meet against South Hills
on Thursday, but showed a lot of
character and promise in the
process. The Pack was ahead for
much of the meet and was only
down by two points going into
the final match, but ended up
42-34.
Claremont has had an uphill battle all
season with only 5 veterans out of 60 students on the roster. The team has come a
long way, given that early
in the season many on the SPORTING
team saw their first ex- LIFE
perience in varsity competition. Overall,
they seemed confident and well-prepared
against the Huskies. That could be a harbinger of great things in years to come.
The meet started with a tough match between Claremonts Chad West and South
Hills Brandon Medina at 106 pounds.
Lighter-weight competitions tend to be
fast and this was no exception. Medina
was clearly the better wrestler on Thursday
and was ahead on points when he pinned
West in the third round.
South Hills looked like they would run
away with it when Dean Pons pinned
Michael Lopez in the 113-pound match,
but the 120-pound match between
Michaels brother, Vicente Lopez and
Zack Pons would be a turnaround for the
Pack.
Vicente Lopez got the first take-down,
but Zack Pons escaped and was able to get
a take-down of his own, going ahead on
points. In the next period, Lopez regained
control and was able to pin his opponent,
giving the Pack their first victory. Following his defeat Pons threw his headgear to
the mat, drawing a technical violation for

Claremonts Anthony Dominguez appears to have Johnathon Godinez under control moments before he pinned his South
Hills opponent Thursday at CHS. The Wolfpack, which has a very young team, did well against the Huskies, winning several
key matches. They unfortunately lost the meet, 42-34.

unsportsmanlike conduct that gave the


Pack a nice boost in the team point total.
The next two matches were very close,
with South Hills and then Claremont winning on points. At 126 pounds, Claremonts Fernando Navarro dominated at
first, following a delay in the match due to
a cramp in Nick McGuires leg. Tied 2-2
late in the competition, McGuire got two
points for a reversal, winning the match.
At 132 pounds, Claremonts Joshua
Lopez and Dante Sera had an equally

close match but Lopez got control in the


third round, nearly pinning Sera twice for
the points victory. The next three matches
all ended in quick pins, with Claremont
taking two victories.
Claremont got the first win after Anthony Dominguez pinned Johnathon
Godinez at 1:35 in the first period.
Dominguez seemed confident, got the first
take-down and was in command the
whole time before the pin.
The 145-pound match went to South

Hills Ivan Villagrana who also got a pin


in the first period over Nicholas Alegria.
Following a forfeit at 152, the 160pound match between Claremonts Malik
Webster and Israel Gardea really raised the
roof. Webster was in attack mode from the
second the whistle blew, never letting up
or giving his opponent a chance to breathe,
getting the pin in the first minute.
South Hills came back with a pin by
Noah Helmuth over James Martinez and

CHS ROUND-UP
BOYS SOCCER
Boys soccer continues to be the bright
star in winter sports for CHS with two
more wins this week, propelling the Pack
to an impressive 17th California state rank
and 54th national rank.
Last Friday, the boys defeated Diamond Bar at home, 2-0. The games top
performance came from junior Jack
Kolodge, with one goal and one assist.
Senior Justin Munevar also scored, and
senior Digby Strogen had an assist.
On Wednesday, the Wolfpack once
again won in front of a home crowd, defeating Glendora 1-0. Senior Tomas
Negritto scored the games only goal, assisted by Ibraheem Hafuda.
The two victories bring the boys record
to 14-1-4 overall and 7-0-1 in the Palomares League.

GIRLS SOCCER
Girls soccer lost a heartbreaker to
Glendora on Wednesday, falling 3-1 in
overtime. The score was tied after regulation, but Glendora made the most of
the overtime period.
The Pack won their conference game
against Diamond Bar last week, 1-0, in
Diamond Bar. Karsyn Jordan scored the
winning goal, assisted by Sydney
Navarro. The Wolfpacks record is now
12-8-4 overall and 3-3-2 in league.

BASKETBALL
Boys basketball upset highly-ranked
Glendora on Wednesday, 84-72, in Glendora. Player of the game went to sophomore Davis Haley with 21 points,
including 7-10 from the field. Sophomore
Kyle Scalmanini had another great game
with 29 points. Four playersHaley,
Scalmanini, Quincy Hailes and Tyler
Fraserhit all their free throws, leading
a strong shooting night for CHS. The
boys record now stands at 12-14 overall
and 4-4 in league.
Girls basketball had a rough week, losing both of their league games. Last week,
Diamond Bar outscored the Pack, 47-34,
in Diamond Bar. On Wednesday, they lost
again, 46-26, in Glendora. Their record
is now 8-14 overall and 0-8 in league.

Claremonts Michael Lopez takes on South Hills Dean Pons in their 113-pound weight class competition on Thursday. South
Hills would eventually get the pin for their second win of the afternoon.
SPORTING LIFE/from the previous page

then in a strategic move, the Huskies decided to skip a forfeit at


182 pounds by moving Carlos Calderon up to 195 to face Caleb
Castaneda. The gamble paid off as Calderon got the pin bringing them within striking distance of Claremonts narrow lead.
The last two matches both went to South Hills, which decided
the meets outcome. First, at 220 pounds, Demetrius Lopez
pinned Diego Fregoso, giving the Huskies a two-point advantage. This was followed by a bit of a grudge match between
Claremonts Ryan Wong and South HillsAustin Moreno. In the
end, Moreno outlasted Wongs endurance and got a pin late in
the third period.

The outcome certainly could have been very different, but the
Packs star heavyweight Em Twogood was not able to attend and
a victory in that final match could have swung the points total
in favor of the Pack.
Coach Gerald Escalante was upbeat after the meet and was impressed with the way his team performed. There was a good
back and forth in competition, he said. They all did great.
The team will now focus their energy on training for the upcoming CIF tournament with strong showings expected from
Twogood and Webster.

WATER POLO
Girls water polo had a mixed week
with Palomares League victories over
Glendora and Diamond Bar, but four
losses and one win in tournament play
over the weekend.
In the Diamond Bar game last Thursday, the Pack completely dominated, winning 19-0. Junior Elise Birkett was the top
scorer with seven goals, followed by
freshman Amber Cui with four, and junior
Mackenzie Elias with three. Junior Kyra
Madunich and freshman Makenna Moore
each had seven steals, and junior Laura
Schroerlucke had six steals.
Tuesdays game against Glendora was
a close race. Schroerlucke and Moore
each scored twice, and freshman Lauren

more Alijah Dudart and senior goalie


Morgan Stockham each had four steals.
We were tied with 1:30 left in the
game when Lauren Hoyle made an impossible pass from the two meter to
Makenna Moore for the game-winning
goal, Coach Michelle Hernandez said.
In a tense last minute of the game, each
team called time-outs to prepare players
for another offensive play. With 30 sec-

onds left, the Pack was up by one point


and had possession. Glendora fought hard
to steal it back, but CHS held out for the
win, 6-5. The victory brings the girls
record to 10-11 overall, 4-3 in league play.

WRESTLING
Wrestling had their final league match,
which unfortunately resulted in a loss to

Bonita, 60-18.
Two of three top female wrestlers won
their matches by decision. Freshman
Debbie Marron won at 113 and her sister,
sophomore Delia Marron, also won her
132-pound match. The third sister, senior
Dina Marron, who placed seventh in last
years CIF tournament, lost her match.

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 recorders office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you
a fee for this information. If you consult either of
these resources, you should be aware that the same
lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed
of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY
OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of
sale may be postponed one or more times by the
mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant
to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The
law requires that information about trustee sale
postponements be made available to you and to the
public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale.
If you wish to learn whether your sale date has
been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled
time and date for the sale of this property, you may
call (714) 573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site
www.priorityposting.com, using the file number
assigned to this case CA-14-3823-CS. 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 undersigned Trustee
disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the
property address or other common designation, if
any, shown herein. If no street address or other
common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending
a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days
of the date of first publication of this Notice of
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 deposit paid. The Purchaser shall
have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the
Mortgagee, or the Mortgagees Attorney. Date:
