one hundred and seventh year, number 38

Dear Editor:
I have a 16-year-old daughter who is a
junior at Claremont High School where,
last Wednesday, I had the pleasure of attending the open house. It was a nice
event and I was really impressed with
the professionalism and enthusiasm of
my daughters teachers. They seemed
kind and genuinely interested in their
subjects and invested in the success of
the children under their tutelage. I was
also really impressed with the amount of
homework being assigned, but not in a
good way.
Of her six classes, five teachers said
she should expect no more than one
hour of homework per night.
I knownot only from past experience but also from work already assigned this semesterthat, depending on
the subject, for my daughter one hour
can easily turn into 90 minutes. It is also
true that at other times it can be less. So
lets say it still amounts to five hours of
homework a night.
The many people who know my
daughter would agree that she is a very
hard worker who takes her academics seriously. But she is also a social kid, with
many great friends, a very serious athlete
and member of both the CHS cross
country and track and field teams, requiring about two hours of practice, six
days per week.
This is why we decided she would enroll in AP classes rather than the more
strenuous IB, so she could have some
kind of balance in her life, which as a father and teacher I know to be critical in
the development of a whole person.
On the way home from school Thurs-

day, my daughter and I added it all up:


Shes in class from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
(seven hours); after-school athletics
practice from 3:15 to 5:15 p.m. (two
hours); straight home and hit the homework, eat dinner while working, take a
shower, more homework from 5:30 to 10
p.m. (four-and-a-half hours, 20 minutes
of them through tears), go to bed and get
up to finish homework from 6:30 to 7
a.m.
Total school and school-related activities totals 14 hours on an average day.
My daughter told me that instead of sitting with her friends at lunch she now
does homework, which is why I didnt
deduct lunchtime from the total hours in
school.
I understand that the high school curriculum is meant to be rigorous so that
students will matriculate into qualitylevel colleges and universities, and that
there is also a great amount of pressure,
both academic and non-academic, to
produce high scores on standardized
tests.
I spent a lot of time in school myself,
eventually earning a doctorate degree.
Im also an adjunct college instructor. In
my classes, I see many students who are
unprepared for college, so I get it. I get
that this is important. But 14 hours a
day? Really? I know there has to be a
better way.

New commission leadership prepares for busy year

uring a special
Wednesday evening
meeting, the Claremont Planning Commission
unanimously elected K.M.
Williamson as its new chair
and approved two future businesses.

Ms. Williamson will spearhead the


team during what could be an active
2015, including a possible new hotel
built on San Jose Street and Indian Hill
Boulevard.
Ms. Williamson has been part of the

commission for the past seven years,


including a stint serving as vice chair.
She has a long career in urban planning, holding a doctorate from the
School of Social Ecology at UC Irvine.
Richard Rosenbluth, another longstanding member of the commission,
was voted in unanimously as the new
vice chair.
Leigh Anne Jones was also introduced as the newest member of the
commission. Ms. Jones, who was officially appointed during the city council
meeting on September 8, is a graduate
of Syracuse University with a bachelors degree in architecture. She has
worked as an architect for over 30

years, and has lived in Claremont for


the past three years.
During the public hearing portion of
the meeting, two new businesses were
unanimously approved to open. An
acupuncture business will be located in
the Claremont Triangle business park at
1420 N. Claremont Blvd., while a childrens tutoring center will be appropriately placed in the Old School House.
The acupuncture business is the
brainchild of Samantha Humphries, a
lifelong Claremonter who had previously operated another acupuncture
business for the past two years and
wanted to move to a new location.
The tutoring center will be known as

the Link Educational Institute. The institutes founder, Alexander Ruiz,


hopes to make it a welcome addition to
the former location of Claremont High
School, providing after-school educational help for high school students.
On October 6, a special meeting will
be convened to discuss a proposed new
hotel to be located at San Jose Avenue
and Indian Hill Boulevard. This new
plan will call for the demolition of the
existing hotel currently on the property.

Oakmont welcomes new outdoor school principal


enny Adams, the new principal at
Oakmont Outdoor School, has arrived at Claremont during one of the
hottest, driest times on record. But no
worries, she can take the heat. After all,
she comes to the district from the high
desert.

Ms. Adams had already started her school year,


where she was head of the Hesperia Unified School
Districts Maple Elementary, when she got word that
Stacey Stewart was leaving Oakmont. The Owls
needed a new principal, and fast. Claremonts reputation had preceded itself, and she jumped at the
chance.
I really love the area, she said. Its a highly respected district, one I really feel I can get involved
with and make a difference.
Ms. Adams was active in theater growing up as
well as band, where she played clarinet and trombone. Recently, she has begun teaching herself
drums. Music feeds your soul, she said. So the fact
that CUSD has art and music education along with
PE at the elementary school level was one of the
draws.
Like all new administrators, Ms. Adams first responsibility is getting the lay of the land at her school
site. My goal is to build relationships with my staff
and families, to get to know my students and to continue the amazing things going on here, she emphasized.
While she is throwing herself into her new job, she
still has one toe on top of the Cajon pass. She lives in
Hesperia and her son Aidan, who is in fifth grade,
still goes to school there.
I didnt want to rip him out of a district where he
has been since kindergarten, she said, adding that
she plans to move her life in a southwesterly direction at a more natural transition point.
When it comes to media interviews, Ms. Adams is
downright fidgety. Shes uncomfortable with the
spotlight, preferring to have any accolades rest where
she feels they belongon the hardworking team that
keeps every school running.
Im a strong believer in shared leadership, she
said. Its not something you do alone. Its something
you do together.
Still, she managed to let slip some information that
indicates shes the woman for the job. Most importantly, Ms. Adams has an unwavering passion for education.

ts the only thing Ive ever


wanted to do, she said. In first
grade, I knew I never wanted to
stop going to school in one way or another. I used to make my friends and my
brother play school.
Ms. Adams grew up in Hobart, Indiana and after
graduating from Hobart High School got her bachelors degree in elementary education at Indianas Ball
State University. She earned a masters in educational
administration at Cal State San Bernardino.
She began her career teaching first, second and
third graders for six and a half years, with her students including first, second and third graders. She
next served as an assistant principal and then principal, with this year marking her fifth year at the helm
of an elementary school. During that time, she has
gained experience in many of the programs on which
Oakmont prides itself.
Its an AVID elementary school site, and Ms.
Adams has been trained in the college readiness program.
The research is clear, she noted. AVID is ex-

Oakmont Outdoor School has hired Jenny Adams to be the schools new principal. Ms. Adams worked for
15 years in Hesperia, first as a teacher, then as an assistant principal and finally as principal of Maple Elementary School.

tremely effective in building academic skills, helping


students get organized and become scholars and
learners. Those skills translate across subject matter
and lay the foundation for success.
Oakmont is also a school that has, in recent years,
focused on continuous improvement. Ms. Adams
says she feels comfortable with that ethos, sharing
that continuous betterment is her modus operandi. If
theres any doubt that shes willing to put in the work,
one need look no further than one of her most consuming hobbies: cycling. She has a mountain bike
shes pretty proud of and, while getting to know
Claremont, has wheeled through Marshall Canyon.
Thats my stress relief, she said.
Ms. Adams is also an avid hiker and camper, and
an adventurer to boot. She loves undertaking road
trips with her son. A recent sojourn entailed a 7,000mile drive across the country. Photographs of that
trip, including a scenic view of La Push Beach, decorate her office. So do several quotations. Ms.
Adamswho is fond of chestnuts like the ancient
Chinese proverb that says None of us is as smart as
all of usis a proponent of valuing the words of
those who have gone before her.
Theres so much wisdom in the world, she explained. You find a good quote and it can really
speak to you when youre making a decision or going
through a rough patch.
Oakmont has been on track for success, thanks to
its steadily dedicated staff. Still, theres no mistaking
the fact that theyve had to take things in stride. Ms.
Adams is the third Oakmont principal in since Kevin
Wards departure in 2010.
Ms. Adams, however, is delighted to be in the district and says she plans to show some staying power.
And when it comes to education, shes not going anywhere.
Its the kids. What can you not love about elementary school? Ms. Adams asked. Thats our future
sitting in those seats, and theyre so creative and
wide-eyed and ready to take on the world.

Where traffic and staying out of it is a good thing


by John Pixley

nd were back. The trip was


over. The weekend getaway
was at an end. No doubt

about it.

For one thing, it was definitely time to put on the air


conditioner in the van. It was suddenly hot. Seriously
hot. Now that we were down off the mountaina short
half-hour drivethe temperature had risen at least 10
degrees. More like 20 degrees.
It was amazing how it got so hot so fast. Unfortunately, it most likely wouldnt be so fast before it cooled
down. The heat would no doubt linger, and probably get
worse, for a while in September and maybe into October. No, we dont put away our white shoes after Labor
Day here in sunny So Cal. (Do we ever put away our
white shoes hereif we wear white shoes nowadays?)
The heat was only one thing, though. After miles of
smooth riding, there was suddenly a line of cars stopped
at a red light. And then there was the freeway, where
there was the inevitable traffic (although it wasnt nearly
as bad as it could have been). Yes, there was traffic, of
courseand all the more to be expected at the end of a
long weekendanother sure sign that the weekend was
coming to a close.
But wait. This wasnt Los Angeles. This was east of
Claremont, in San Bernardino. Same thing, more or
less, at least when it comes to traffic.
Traffic. Again. We are always talking about traffic,
how bad the traffic is and how we dread the traffic
going to and from LA. Im always writing about traffic.
Here I am writing about traffic. Again.
It turns out theres a good reason for this. Or a bad
reason. According to an article in the Los Angeles Times
last month, its not just our imagination. A recent report
by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute and the traffic data company Inrix says that the greater LA areaI
think that includes us as well as maybe San
Bernardinohas the second-worst traffic in the nation.
What this means, according to the report, is that
southern California drivers spent 80 hours sitting in traffic in 2014. This is second only to Washington, DC,
where the researchers say commuters clocked 82 hours
of delays during the year.
This is surely a validation, but for some this differ-

observer
ence, coming to 10 minutes per month, is actually a disappointment. The last time I told people in LA they
werent No. 1, they got upset, said Jim Bak, an Inrix
traffic analyst who characterized the reaction as If we
have to suffer, we at least want to know that we suffer
the most.
Okay, so we come in second, but being stuck in traffic for 80 hours in a year is pretty bad, pretty terrible.
And although we come in second, the severity of rushhour delays here is worse than in any other area, according to the study. Trips during peak commuting periods
here took 43 percent longer than during non-peak hours,
meaning that an hour-long drive at noon takes roughly
an hour and a half at 6 p.m.
Whats more, Mr. Bak said, all this traffic costs us an
average of $1,711 a year in lost wages and productivity.
Eighty hours and $1,711. Thats an awful lot of waste in
a year and big-time proof that traffic is horrible here, not
just something we imaginesecond place or not.
Good thing, then, that were in Claremont. Indeed, all
this traffic gives us all the more reason to enjoy Claremont. These days, there is more and more reason to
stick around Claremont and avoid the freeway traffic, at
least when we dont have to take the freeway to work.
This alone is something to enjoy.
Theres much more, though, to enjoy than avoiding
traffic. Claremont is no longer a sleepy little town where
the sidewalks roll up at 6, where things go dead once
the colleges let out for the summer. It is no longer necessary to go somewhere else for something to do.
Not with the numerous restaurants and cafes that are
in the Village, at least, especially since the expansion.
There are many evenings when I pass through the Village and hear live music and groups of people talking
and laughing The Laemmle Cinema has been a big part
of this.
But it isnt just all the restaurants and unique shops
that, more than ever, we now have. There is also the live

music on Friday evenings, the Art Walk now on Saturday evenings once a month and the Farmers Market on
Sundays, as well as the special events like the Wine
Walk and the Village Venture, which is coming up soon.
I thought it was too bad that the Wednesday evening
Street Fair was discontinued, but Claremont and its
merchants have taken some good steps in making this a
place to be.
In fact, in recent years, it not only looks like more and
more people are staying close to home and avoiding
traffic, it looks like more and more people are braving
traffic to be here.
It is not just the Village that has picked up the pace,
but summer in Claremont is quite different. The July
Fourth festivities arent the only game in town during
the hot, quiet months. With the weekly and monthly
events in the Village, like the live music on Friday
evenings (not to mention all the live music at restaurants), added into the mix of concerts and movies in the
parks, there is a tidy schedule of goings-on. Dont forgettheres also the Shakespeare plays now put on in
July by the Ophelias Jump theater company at the
lovely outdoor Greek Theatre on the Pomona College
campus.
And then, speaking of campuses, there are the colleges. With the students back and classes well underway
now that September is half over, there now is a whole
smorgasbord of activities and presentations.
There are now concerts, like the tribute to Ruth
Crawford Seeger, the American modernist composer
and advocate for folk music, next Saturday and the
Chamber Music Extraganza next Sunday, both presented by the Pomona College Music Department at
Little Bridges. This evening, the Mariachi Divas are
playing on the Bowling Green at Scripps College, part
of the Levitt on the Lawn series. There is also a steady
line-up of lectures, including but certainly not only at
the Athenaeum at CMC. Films are also being shown
and discussed, and, later, there will be plays and dance
concerts.
There was a time, at least for me, when this collegiate
activity, like the gradually cooling weather, was a relief
after the boring, long, hot Claremont summer. Now, it
is one more thing going on here, yet another reason to
stick around and not have to get stuck in traffic. Its nice
being in a place to go to and not having to get there.

Civilized discourse

Dear Editor:
Last week, I wrote a response to Jeffrey
Auerbachs editorial about Dollar Tree
coming to Peppertree Square. What I
failed to mention is that Jeff and I have
been longtime friends (despite having
very different views of the world).
After Jeff read my editorial, he contacted me to apologize and to discuss our
differences of opinion. We then talked (we
actually spokewe did not use email)
and I apologized for any of my comments
that may have been derogatory to him.
When the conversation was complete,
we both had a better understanding of
each others opinions and we certainly
will remain friends. In a world where so
many show such partisanship and dislike
towards each other, I am very proud to
have been able to engage in such civilized
discourse regarding a community concern.
Brad Umansky
Claremont

Put public safety first


Dear Editor:
On November 3, Claremont residents
will have the opportunity to vote on a parcel tax to finance the construction of a
new police station. It is instructive to compare the costs and benefits of this project
with those of the proposed water system
acquisition.
The planned $50 million station will
cost homeowners $286 per year for the
next 40 years. This will provide our police force with a state-of-the-art facility
that will be of immediate and lasting benefit to the community.
By contrast, the $135 million water
system acquisition will not improve the
quality or reliability of our water service,
or make it more affordable; to the contrary, the city says that we will be paying
$336 more per year just for the privilege
of saying that we own it.
Each of these projects has its champions and its critics, and residents may disagree as to which one is a higher priority.
But it should be obvious to everyone that

READERS COMMENTS
Claremont cannot afford to do both at the
same time.
Our total debt, which is currently
among the lowest in the region, would almost quadruple in size to $248 million. To
put that number in perspective, on a per
capita basis Claremonts new debt load
would be twice the size of Uplands, and
three times larger than that of Pomona or
La Verne.
It is foolish to imagine that there will be
no consequences to borrowing so much
money all at once. Our city leadership
should have foreseen this problem and
dealt with it themselves, but it has now
been dropped squarely in our laps.
Here are the choices we are left with:
we can approve the parcel tax and run the
risk of assuming the massive combined
debt of both projects; or we can disapprove the tax and wait and see what happens with the water system acquisition,
which may take years to resolve.
We deserve a third option. While there
are some legitimate questions as to the
size and cost of the proposed new police
station, most of us would agree that the
department faces real infrastructure problems that need to be dealt with one way
or another.
On the other hand, there is no urgency
whatsoever to acquire the water system.
It can be stopped right now without any
negative consequences at all, and revived
in the future if and when the citys financial posture allows us to do so in a responsible way.
In fact, Claremont can more than cover
the cost of a brand-new police station with
the money we would save by foregoing
the water system acquisition.
Under the circumstances, this is the
only course of action which ensures that
our public safety needs can be met in a
timely and affordable manner.

Scrap the parcel tax


Dear Editor:
Ive been looking over the material
from the city on Claremonts public safety
measure. Initially, I was pleased that a parcel tax had been chosen so our many nonprofits would contribute to the funding of
a new facility. Clearly, the Colleges, retirement communities and churches are
served by our local police. At $286 per
parcel per year, nonprofits would contribute just under $95,000 each year.
Then I looked at the citys estimates of
the annual debt service charges. The comparison table shows that for a 40-year period the parcel tax annual service cost
would be $3 million; the annual cost for
GO bonds would be $2.6 million By
choosing parcel tax instead of GO bonds
as the funding mechanism, we are paying
an extra $400,000 each year. The city material recognizes this difference by noting
the disadvantage of a parcel tax is that
debt service is higher.
Certainly it is fair for the nonprofits to
contribute, but if it costs us four times as
much in debt service costs as the nonprofits contribute, is it a good choice?
The other major difference I see between the two funding mechanisms is that
with a parcel tax, the most modest home
would pay the same amount as the most
palatial. That may be equal but it doesnt
seem fair. A charge based on property
value (despite some inequalities based on
length of ownership) seems preferable to
me. Why choose a regressive tax, especially one that costs more?
Having all those who benefit contribute
is a fine principle. However, paying

money merchants an extra $400,000


every year so we can collect $95,000 from
local nonprofits is not a choice I support.
Id rather give the nonprofits a free ride
and save the extra $300,000.

Tree details

Dear Editor:
Thanks so much to the COURIER for
the spread on keeping our trees alive! And
thanks for reporting on my comments to
the city council about water bags. Id like
to be clear that I have concerns about
them being used on trees over about five
inches or so in trunk diameter.
Bags are very helpful for newly-planted
or small trees, or ones whose roots are
covered with hardscape except near the
trunk, but not for larger trees.
The water from bags only moves outward a short distance from the actual bag,
missing much of the root area of a larger
tree, which extends from the trunk to beyond the canopy edge and down to about
two feet.
Another difficulty is that an established
tree with a 12-inch trunk would need
about 120 gallons distributed over the
whole of its root area to deep water it to 12
to 18 inches, and a bag only delivers 20
gallons in a limited spot.
Trees over about a five-inch trunk diameter do best with a soaker hose, one
with inline emitters or hand watering,
arranged to distribute the needed amount
of water over the whole root area.
Bags on larger trees are better than no
water at all of course, but they can provide
a sense that water needs are being fully
addressed when in fact they are not. For
more information, visit www.sustainableclaremont.org.

Funding the new public safety facility


by Corey Calaycay, mayor of Claremont

n November 3, Claremont voters will be


asked to decide on the
funding of a new public safety
facility. The city council made
the unanimous decision to
place the funding of the new
facility on the ballot after more
than 12 years of analysis and
research.

The citys existing police station at


Bonita Avenue was built in 1972. It
serves as the emergency services center
for the city. At the time the station was
constructed, the population and service
area of Claremont was much smaller.
The police force was almost half the
size and exclusively male. While today
computers are used in every facet of police work, when the station was constructed this was not the case.
For over a decade, city commissions
and committees have studied the feasibility of building a new facility to replace the aging police station. Although
the current station has served the needs
of the community for more than 42
years, it is no longer equipped to meet
the demands of a modern police force.
The existing police station also does
not meet current state codes and requirements for a building that provides
essential police services. Since the
Northridge earthquake, building standards have dramatically changed in California to ensure essential services

VIEWPOINT

buildings can structurally withstand a


major disaster.
Engineers now know that the concrete block materials used in the Claremont station will not withstand a major
seismic event. Buildings such as police
stations and hospitals that provide essential services must be built to a standard one and a half times greater than
normal commercial construction.
Additionally, the existing station was
built before the enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act and is therefore not in compliance. Also, the jail
facility does not meet current State of
California Department of Corrections
standards. The citys consultants analyzed and compared the cost of renovating the existing station and found that
the cost to construct a new public safety
facility is less expensive than renovating
the existing building.
The total cost for the new public
safety facility is $50 million based on an
estimate developed using input from geotechnical engineers, architects, structural engineers, cost estimators and
construction professionals. Of the $50
million estimated for the facility, approximately $35 million is for construction of the 39,445-square-foot facility.
This amount includes a 5 percent contingency amount of $1.7 million.
The other $15 million would be used
for the preparation of the new site, a

solar panel system on the facility, a


canopy with solar panels over the fleet
vehicles and a radio communication
system to replace the existing obsolete
one.
The city is asking voters to approve
funding up to $50 million. Cost savings
and any additional funding secured by
the city would reduce the bond amount,
which would lower the annual parcel
tax amount.
For example, the proceeds from the
sale of the Bonita Avenue property
would be put towards reducing the cost
of the new facility, thus reducing the
bond amount. The city will make every
effort to minimize the cost while ensuring the new facility is built to the highest building standards.
When planning the Claremont public
safety facility, staff and consultants
looked at other comparable stations that
were built in the last 10 years. They
found that each station is unique and
construction costs vary depending on
the needs of the department and the
time the station was built.
As an example, Montclair built its
station in 2008 based on their needs at
the time. If that station were built today,
it would cost close to $35 million.
Montclair financed its facility through a
sales tax measure, which capitalized on
the revenue from the citys large retail
centers.
When deciding to place Measure PS
on the November 3 ballot, the city council considered various financing mechanisms and decided a parcel tax was the

Theres more to see. Check out our photo galleries.

best option. Funding the facility through


a parcel tax ensures all Claremont property owners including churches, colleges and nonprofit organizations, pay a
fair share of the cost because they all
benefit equally from police services.
Funding the new public safety facility
should not be compared to funding the
water system. The water system would
be financed by the money customers already pay in water rates to Golden State
Water Company. Funding a public
safety facility would be through a set
annual parcel tax payment that would
remain constant for 40 years.
The city council, commissions and a
special ad hoc committee have discussed the condition of the existing police station and the need for a new
public safety facility for 12 years.
The city held numerous public meetings to gather input from the community. The public agreed with the facts
used by the city council to make the decision to seek public approval of Measure PS. Public comments at these
meetings also affirmed that a parcel tax
is an equitable way to pay for something this essential.
The only thing that remains is
whether the voters will decide to fund
the new facility now, when circumstances and economic conditions are favorable, or later when circumstances
and economic conditions are unknown.

Emily Moultrie and Natalie Seffer

BOOKMARK

laremont Craft Ales


isnt just home to a selection of beers with
locally inspired names like Indian Hill, Caf Padua and Station 101. It houses a couple of
avid readers who like the written word as much as they do
the brewed beverage.
The COURIER recently caught up
with cousins Emilie Moultrie and Natalie Seffer who, along with their husbands Simon Brown and Brian Seffer,
keep the local taproomwhich celebrated its third anniversary this summerrunning smoothly.
The conversation wasnt held over a
pint. After all, Ms. Seffer, now mother
to one-month-old Benjamin, was pregnant with her first child at the time of
the interview. It was one, however, in
which everyone involved agreed that a
good book is the best way to cure what
ales you.
The love of reading began early for
Ms. Moultrie, who still remembers the
first book she read, Are You My
Mother? If youre unfamiliar with the
childrens classic, written and illustrated by P.D. Eastman and typically
sold as part of the Dr. Seuss series, its
about a baby bird that hatches while his
mom is out looking for food. The little
guy roams around, looking for his
mother in all the wrong places.
I come back to that book for every
baby, she said. I get it for everyone
who is pregnant.
Ms. Moultrie graduated from picture
books to mysteries, starting with the
Nancy Drew series, which also pulled
in Ms. Seffer. When they were girls,
both tore through the books in which a
Titian-haired sleuthwith a natty
sports car and a penchant for trouble
solved mysteries like The Haunted
Showboat and The Witch Tree Symbol. Ive been tempted to reread
them, Ms. Moultrie said.
Her taste turned a shade darker as
she became a teenager. She developed
an addiction to Stephen King books and
recalls holing up in the office at her
moms music and dance studio, the
Moultrie Academy, and reading Mis-

ery. In the nail-biting story, a deranged


fan kidnaps her favorite author and
forces him to write a novel to her liking.
I remember like yesterday sitting in
the office, with the doors closed and
kids running around outside. I was just
riveted, Ms. Moultrie said.
Ms. Moultrie is still fascinated by
darker fare and, when shes looking for
physical books, gravitates towards
mysteries, thrillers and sci-fi. When it
comes to audio books, she enjoys nonfiction, from history to neuroscience.
That kind of subject matter gets daunting when you have to put your eyes on
it, she said.
She cites among memorable audio
books those by Canadian journalist
Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can
Make a Big Difference and Blink:
The Power of Thinking Without
Thinking. The latter is about the
strengths and pitfalls of unconscious

perceptions, brainstorms, decisions and


adaptations.
She also likes neurologist Oliver
Sacks, who died last month after authoring more than a dozen books.
These include Hallucinations (2012),
about the imaginative trickery of the
mind, and The Minds Eye (2010), an
exploration of life with visual deficits.
Among the case studies in Minds Eye,
Mr. Sacks writes about his own experiences with cancer of the eye and his
lifelong inability to recognize faces.
Im an old-school print girl, Ms.
Seffer said, noting that she gets books
from Target or from friends who are
finished with a particular title they
think she might like. She loves reading
by the pool or in bed, because it relaxes
her.
Like her cousin, shes a fan of darktinged mysteries and thrillers. When
Ms. Seffer finds an author she admires,
she dives in headfirst, reading all of
their books before moving onto someone new. One such writer is Gillian
Flynn, author of thrillers like Sharp
Objects and the hugely popular Gone
Girl.
During her recent pregnancy, Ms.
Seffer found it difficult to stomach
some of the books she usually enjoys.
She didnt want anything too bloodspattered, and no stories where anything bad befalls a child. She prepared
for motherhood instead by reading a
stack of parenting books, including the
requisite What to Expect When
Youre Expecting.
She learned calming, anti-colic tips
from The Happiest Baby on the
Block: The New Way to Calm Crying
and Help Your Newborn Baby Sleep
Longer by noted pediatrician Harvey

Karp. She also enjoyed Bringing Up


Bb: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting.
A New York Times Bestseller, Bringing up Bb shares American journalist
Pamela Druckermans observations on
the things French parents do right, like
getting babies on a sleep schedule, raising non-fussy eaters and allowing kids
to explore and play, rather than jockeying to entertain them or over-schedule
their time.
Ms. Moultrie may be an avid seeker
of new books, but she has one that she
returns to again and again: Ray Bradburys Something Wicked This Way
Comes.
Mr. Bradbury is perhaps best known
for his collections of short stories, but
Something Wicked is a full-length
novel. It focuses on 13-year-old friends
Jim Nightshade and William Halloway
who, when a traveling carnival comes
to town, encounter unimaginable horror. The carnivals leader, Mr. Dark,
has the seeming power to grant the
townspeople their secret desires. The
dreams come with strings attached,
however, amounting to the selling of
your soul.
The writing is masterful, as to be expected from the acknowledged master
of science fiction. Around October 20,
Mr. Bradbury writes, everything is
smoky-smelling and the sky orange
and ash gray at twilight, and it seems
Halloween will never come in a fall of
broomsticks and a soft flap of bed
sheets around corners.
There are lines in there that are so
beautiful. Theres such a sadness to it,
Ms. Moultrie said.

CEF to offer community partnership grants

Collaboration is music
to the ears of Camp
Broadway participants

The Claremont Educational Foundation (CEF) has announced the availability of community partnership grants.
CEF will fund programs or initiatives
that enhance learning through community partnerships and targeted funding
opportunities that extend CEFs efforts
in art, music, technology and other vital
areas to bolster educational support
services and enrich educational programming.
CEF is interested in funding programs and projects that develop and
sustain valuable links with nonprofit organizations that share CEFs commitment to support Claremont Unified
School District students and families.
Qualified applicants must have a
presence in southern California and
should demonstrate service to members
of the Claremont community. Proposals
should be well articulated with identifiable goals and a clear vision for collaborative education partnerships between
nonprofit organizations and teachers,
school sites, district-sponsored programs or the general Claremont community.
The CEF board expects to award
$10,000 in this grant cycle with CEF
Community Partnership Grants not exceeding $2,000 each.
The funding of community partnership grants is a new CEF initiative.
Robert Fass, CEF vice president and
chair of the strategic planning committee explained, it grew from a desire for
CEF to serve as a hub for community
engagement, which includes the work

Through the Camp Broadway summer workshop program, students recently convened at the Claremont
Community School of Music where
they were taught skills in acting,
singing and dancing. They then joined
seasoned adult actors in performances
of The Music Man, held this August at
the Grove Theatre in Upland.
The program, now in its sixth year,
represents a fruitful collaboration between the Inland Valley Repertory Theatre, the CCSM and the Grove, which
donated a percentage of ticket sales to
the local music school. The money will
be used for scholarships awarded to
students wanting to take music classes.
According to Matthew Keating, executive director of the Claremont Community School of Music, the program
was a win-win for all involved, so
much so that a second session was
added.
The students described the experience as exciting, fun, cool and awesome, he shared. One child said, It
was really neat to see how everything
works behind the scenes.
The Claremont Community School
of Music has opened enrollment for the
fall of 2015. Classes include private vocal and music lessons, with instruments
ranging from piano to oboe. There are
also group classes like Lil Singers, Musical Theatre and Mommy and Me as
well as ensembles with names like I
Love Chorus and the Village Pipers.
For information, call (909) 624-3012

Tonight at 7 p.m., the Claremont


High School Wolfpack will host longtime rivals Damien High School in
football.
In an email sent to the CHS community, Principal Brett OConnor reminds
students and residents to show courtesy
to our visiting Spartans.
Throughout this week, our football
coaches have emphasized with the
players the importance of good sportsmanship prior to the game, during the
game and after the game. Every varsity
football player has signed a student-athlete social media agreement promising
not to post any items that degrade
Damien High School before, during or
after the game.
Mr. OConnor hopes the teams good
sportsmanship will extend off the field.
Our student athletes are only one
part of the equation, Mr. OConnor
wrote. CHS staff needs the assistance
of the student body and adults to ensure
the atmosphere at the game represents
the values of our school, families and
the community. Good sportsmanship is
every spectators responsibility.
Mr. OConnor asks that students and
spectators show courtesy to the visiting
team, respect the integrity and judgment of the officials, refrain from the
use of profanity, vulgarity and other offensive language and gestures and
lastly to win with character or lose
with dignity.
Parents sending their kids off to thebig game tonight are asked to take
some time to talk with students about
good sportsmanship towards opponents.
I look forward to seeing many of
you at this exciting athletic contest on
Friday evening, he expressed. If we
all work together, I hope at the end of
the evening CHS and the community
can be proud.

Annual interfaith walk


to include visits to local
Muslim, Jewish and
Christian communities
Faith leaders and community members from throughout the Pomona Valley are set to join in the seventh annual
Interfaith Walk and Rally for Peace
on Sunday, September 20 beginning at
4 p.m. at the City of Knowledge Islamic School on Garey Avenue, just
south of Foothill Boulevard in Pomona.
The event, sponsored by the Claremont Interfaith Working Group for
Mid-East Peace, will proceed from City
of Knowledge along Foothill Boulevard to Towne Avenue, where they will

head south to Temple Beth Israel. From


the synagogue, the walk will then move
down Towne Avenue to Harrison Avenue and conclude in Claremont at St.
Ambrose Episcopal Church at the corner of Harrison and Mountain Avenues.
Originally conceived as a Walk and
Rally for Hope and Peace in 2009, the
event has matured from its origins as a
commemoration of the events of 9-1101 to focus on wider issues of understanding and cooperation among the diverse faith and religious groups in the
area, with a particular emphasis on mutual respect.
While the event has always been
non-partisan, in recognition of the tensions often evident that stem from
events taking place in the Middle East,
the Working Group has again made a
special point of emphasizing that the
walk is not a place where signage or
slogans supporting particular factions
are welcome.
At St. Ambrose, participants may enjoy a light communal meal, and extended fellowship. There is no charge
for participation in the event, but commemorative t-shirts will be available
for purchase and financial contributions
to help support further events are always appreciated.
Those unable to walk may also drive
between locations. Parking will be
available at all stops, and limited transportation will be available at St. Am-

12

brose back to City of Knowledge at the


conclusion. The planned route this year
will be shorter than last year, allowing
more time for interaction and presentations at the various venues.
Further information is available at
facebook.com/ClaremontInterfaithWG
or by calling the CIWG hotline at (909)
542-8150.

Girls volleyball sets sights high for 2015 play

laremont High School


girls volleyball has
mixed results in preseason play, but the team and their
new coach have high expectations for the upcoming Palomares League.

The Pack has a 2-3 record overall, but


easily handled Maranatha High School, 30, last Thursday. According to Coach Mark
Mina, Claremont has only one loss, to
Rancho Cucamonga, outside of tournament play.
Coach Mina, who served as the junior
varsity coach last year, brings 24 years of
experience to his new position leading the
girls varsity team. He started his career at
Riverside City College and was then an assistant at Cal Poly Pomona. He led the La

Salle team for 10 years and has run his


own all-boys club volleyball team, where
he helped several players on to successful
college careers.
Coach Mina has also brought along two
assistants to fill out the coaching staff at
Claremont. Tori May, who most recently
was at Cal State San Bernardino, will be
coaching JV and Jessica Socha will be
leading the freshman squad.
Claremonts star outside hitter, sophomore Emilee Rohr, is out for a few weeks
after pulling a hamstring during the Packs
match with Rancho. It is a blow for the
team, however, one that will hopefully be
temporary with Rohr returning to play next
month. She made news earlier this year
when she accepted an offer to play volleyball at USC.
Rohrs injury has not dampened Coach
Minas enthusiasm, even if he has had to

Claremont High School cross country


claimed two big wins Wednesday during
their first Palomares League meet held at
Whittier Narrows, according to PrepCalTrack.
With three of the top four finishers,
Claremonts boys bested Ayala, 26-42,
both CIF-Southern Section Division II
ranked teams, in a race that was closer
than the final score indicates.
Ayalas Steven Kahn came in first at
15:14 followed by a pair of Claremont
runners, Ryan Renken at 15:22 and
Owen Bishop at 15:32.
Even though the Wolfpacks top finish
was third in the girls race, they still swept
the meet by claiming five of the top
seven spots for a 25-62 victory over
Bonita. Ayala was a close third at 64.
Ayala claimed the individual win with
Sydney Tullai at 17:51, with Bonitas
Kelsey Creese 19 seconds behind, followed by Claremonts Jax Heckers at
18:24 for third.

The Claremont High School football


team narrowly defeated Covina, 17-14,
on Thursday in a non-conference showdown in Covina. Claremont scored a
touchdown in both the first and second
quarters, going into halftime up 14-0.
The second half was all Covina, as the
Colts answered with two touchdowns to
tie the score at 14. But the Wolfpack defense tightened just enough to give CHS
time to rally in the final minute with a
field goal to take the win.
The Pack takes on rival Damien Friday in Claremont at 7 p.m.

move some players around.


Anchored by outside hitter junior Simone Bliss, Coach Mina has replaced
Rohr with co-captain Emily Bird as the
other outside hitter. Bird started in that position last year so she can easily substitute.
The team is great. Weve got a nice
core of returning players and a nice group
of new players who were moved up, he
said. Two [former JV] players, Sydney
Lawler and Jennifer Farias, have made
their way to the regular rotation.
I feel really good about our chances for
league this year. It will be a good dog fight.
The tournament was the only period when
we were not ourselves, said coach Mina.
Glendora looks strong, even though
they lost one of their best players, and
Bonita will also be good.
Captains Bird and Georgie Jackson are

equally upbeat about the teams prospects.


The last time we won league was 1998,
which was the same year we [Bird and
Jackson] were born, so our big goal is to
win in 2015, said Jackson during a recent
practice at CHS.
The Pack has a three-way rotation at setter with senior Roi Wallace, sophomore
Kylie Robinson and Kira Butz, with all
three girls bringing different strengths to
the position. They are three really good
setters, so its a nice dilemma to have, said
Coach Mina.
Last year, the team went on to the second round of CIF, which was also when
Coach Mina stepped up to the varsity position. Next up for the girls is a non-conference game against San Dimas on
Thursday.

:Ancient Egypt
The ancient Egyptian afterlife: from mummy to paradise

ncient Egyptians believed in life


after death. If you wanted to continue on and enjoy a happy afterlife, the body had to be preserved.
By the 16th century BCE, the art of mummification had been perfected. When someone died, especially if they were important or rich, their organs
were removed and replaced with spices. Their body
was dried in salts and wrapped in a soft fabric
called linen, with lots of amuletsornaments to
protect against evilplaced between the layers.
The mummy was stored in a stone or wooden
coffin called a sarcophagus and buried along with
everything the person would need in the afterlife,
including dishes, jewelry, makeup, food, wine and
furniture. Other items placed in tombs included religious books and statues called Shabti, which were
said to act as servants.
Sometimes, even animals would be buried along

with a person, to serve as friends and bring good


luck. Archaeologists have found all kinds of critters
in tombs, from mummified mice to an 18-foot-long
crocodile!
If you wanted a happy ever after, you also had to
live a good life. Ancient Egyptians thought a dead
person passed through a place called the Hall of
Two Truths where their heart was weighed against
a feather, with the god Anubis holding the scales.
If the heart was lighter than the feather, which
stood for truth and justice, they could continue on
to live in the Fields of Yalu under the protection of
the god Osirus.
Yes, ancient Egyptians had a lot of hurdles to
jump through in order to reach their equivalent of
heaven. Once there, however, they believed the afterlife was pain-free, enjoyable and eternal.

to be in a play. It will be performed at the Lewis
Family Playhouse at Victoria Gardens in Rancho
Cucamonga, starting on October 10.

What are Elephant & Piggie Saying?

DEAR ADY: I am a boy who is 9 years old. I


watched a bunch of episodes of Ancient
Aliens because the show is really interesting. The only problem is that now Im having trouble going to sleep, because I keep
thinking about aliens and what would happen if I saw one and it tried to hurt me. Ive
even had a couple of bad dreams about
aliens. My mom says not to worry because
there are no aliens. My dad said that he
doesnt know if there are aliens, but that
they might even be nice. Im still freaked out
and wish I didnt watch that show. How can
I stop being afraid?
Signed, Spaced Out
DEAR SPACEDOUT: I can relate. I get
worried at night sometimes too. Your parents offered you two different approaches
to thinking about aliens. Both are worth
considering, because they may help you
feel more comfortable (and less afraid)
when you are thinking about the possibility
of aliens.
Your mom is saying that there are no
aliens that we know of, so it's important to
know how unlikely aliens are. If you ask
anybody you know if they have ever seen
an alien they will probably say no, and if
they say yes, then you have to think about
if you really believe what they're saying.
Think about the probability of aliens coming to you. Since it is likely no one you
know has even seen an alien, the chances
of one existing AND coming to you are
very, very slim.
Your dad is saying that no one knows if
there are aliens or not, but there is an equal
chance of them being good, or being bad.
Think about it: even in the very unlikely
scenario that an alien does come to Earth it
could be bad, but there is the same chance
of it being good.
If I were you, I would think about what
your mom and your dad are really saying
with more fascination and less worry. And,
who knows maybe there is an alien child
on another planet who is up at night worrying if there are aliens from Earth that want
to abduct him. You never know!

DO BUSINESS IN THIS STATE:
All right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by
the trustee in the hereinafter described property under
and pursuant to a Deed of Trust described as:
More fully described in said Deed of Trust.
Street Address or other common designation of real
property: 150 Buena Vista Drive, Claremont, CA
91711
A.P.N.: 8315-015-005
The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any
incorrectness of the street address or other common designation, if any, shown above.
The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession,
or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum
of the note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust. The total
amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured
by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated
costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial
publication of the Notice of Sale is:
$ 784,563.55.
If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason,
the successful bidders 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 of the Deed of Trust has executed and
delivered to the undersigned a written request to commence foreclosure, and the undersigned caused a 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
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 this property.
NOTICE OF TRUSTEE'S SALE
Note: Because the Beneficiary reserves the right to bid
less than the total debt owed, it is possible that at the
time of the sale the opening bid may be less than the
total debt
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 (866)-9608299 or visit this Internet Web site http://www.altisource.com/MortgageServices/DefaultManagement/Tr
usteeServices.aspx using the file number assigned to
this case 2014-04739-CA. 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.

Notice of Divided Publication
NOTICE OF DIVIDED
PUBLICATION OF THE PROPERTY
TAX-DEFAULT LIST
(DELINQUENT LIST)
Made pursuant to Section 3371, Revenue and
Taxation Code
Pursuant to Revenue and Taxation Code Sections
3381 through 3385, the Notice of Power to Sell
Tax-Defaulted Property in and for Los Angeles
County, State of California, has been divided and
distributed to various newspapers of general circulation published in the County. A portion of the
list appears in each of such newspapers.
I, Joseph Kelly, County of Los Angeles Tax Collector, State of California, certify that:
Notice is hereby given that the real properties
listed below were declared to be in tax default at
12:01 a.m. on July 1, 2013, by operation of law.
The declaration of default was due to non-payment of the total amount due for the taxes, assessments, and other charges levied in the
2012-13 Tax Year that were a lien on the listed
real property. Non-residential commercial property and property upon which there is a recorded
nuisance abatement lien shall be subject to the
Tax Collector's power to sell after three years of
defaulted taxes. Therefore, if the 2012-13 taxes
remain defaulted after June 30, 2016, the property will become subject to the Tax Collector's
power to sell and eligible for sale at the County's
public auction in 2017. All other property that
has defaulted taxes after June 30, 2018, will become subject to the Tax Collector's power to sell
and eligible for sale at the County's public auction in 2019. The name of the assessee and the
total tax, which was due on June 30, 2013, for the
2012-13 Tax Year, is shown opposite the parcel
number. Tax-defaulted real property may be redeemed by payment of all unpaid taxes and assessments, together with the additional penalties
and fees as prescribed by law, or it may be paid
under an installment plan of redemption if initiated prior to the property becoming subject to the
Tax Collector's power to sell.
All information concerning redemption of taxdefaulted property will be furnished, upon request, by Joseph Kelly, Treasurer and Tax
Collector at 225 North Hill Street, Los Angeles,
California 90012,
1 (888) 807-2111 or 1 (213) 974-2111.
I certify under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct. Executed at Los Angeles,
California, on August 24, 2015.

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

After a relatively slower month of July, August picked up again with a large number of sales. It is still a
market predominantly under the $750,000 price range, with the upper end only consisting of about 13
percent of the sales last month (and most months this year). The average days on market for the homes
sold where considerably higher in August. This can be explained by several high dollar listings that took
many months before selling, thus skewing the averages upward. With the FED just announcing they will
not raise interest rates quite yet, it seems that the market will continue on the current path without any
major changes. This is good news for the housing market as a rise in rates will likely slow the market and
have some downward pressure on prices. That being said, the FED is set to meet again in October and
December, and it is likely that a rate hike may be announced at either of those meetings.

REAL ESTATE

The recent sale of our Claremont home presented some very


unique challenges. Carlos and Pat handled my former home
as if it were their own. They kept me informed,
responded with professionalism and reassurance, and made
sure that as their customers, my ex-husband and I were their
top priority. The house ended up selling for higher than
asking price. I recommend Carlos and Pat Samuelson with
complete confidence and a heart full of gratitude.
