ts no secret that politicians running for office


will bend, stretch and even totally discard the
truth in an effort to get elected. Unfortunately, the mud-slinging in 2016 took us to a new
low. But candidate Trump is now President
Trump, so I was hoping the need to focus on real
issues would outweigh the need to point fingers.
Guess I just underestimated our new commander
in chief.
One thing that became clear from the inaugural events and
news this week. President Trump was so surprised at the size of
worldwide protests directed at him, he did something hes very
comfortable doing. He blasted the media.
In this case, the venom was even stronger as he declared a
running war with the press. All this for publishing accurate
numbers on the dismal crowd sizes at his inaugural events.
Looks like we not only have fake news to deal with, but alternate facts direct from the White House.
This approach is unheard of for any modern American president, especially given his falsehoods were so obvious. What we
all lost here was something immensely valuable to any country:
credibility. No longer is disinformation used for just banana republics and dictators. There is a new player in this field, and hes
all ours.
What President Trump does not see is how aggressive use of
falsehoods will hurt his own agenda. Credibility with the American public is key to his success.
And right now its sinkingand sinking fast. Here are some
examples.
President Trump said the press created a feud between him
and the intelligence community. Not true. He has repeatedly criticized it, even calling the CIAs report on Russia ridiculous.
The president said of his inauguration crowd, It looked honestly like a million and a half people, whatever it was, it was, but
it went all the way back to the Washington Monument. Many
of you have seen the two photos comparing the crowd at
Obamas 2009 inauguration to the presidents last Friday. Needless to say, theres a stark difference. The latest estimate was 1.8
million to 800,000.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer was also quick to
support the presidents false claims. This was the largest audience to ever witness an inaugurationperiodboth in person
and around the globe, he said. Did these guys look at the video?
Nielsen reported that viewership in the United States for the
Trump inauguration was about 25 percent less than Obamas in

compared to Presidents Trumps turnout in 2017.

2009, and fell far short of Ronald Reagans record (42 million)
in 1981. Online viewership mimicked that of television.
President Trump lost the popular vote by more than three million over Hillary Clinton. The new president quickly blamed the
problem on unauthorized immigrants voting illegally. The truth
is he actually received more Hispanic votes (28 percent) than
Mitt Romney (27 percent) in 2012. If anything, the support was
better than expected.
The problem with his voter fraud claims is the president has
presented no evidence whatsoever. So instead of moving forward from a tough election and approving the results, the president wants to launch an investigation to support his claims. Its
an investigation that basically has already been completed finding no widespread wrongdoing.
Even Republican Senator Lindsey Graham from South Carolina said its time he knock it off, adding, This is going to
erode his ability to govern the country. You think?
It remains to be seen how or if President Trump will change
his approach when dealing with the public and the press. So far,
he has proved the shoot the messenger approach is alive and
well, especially when he alters the facts.
The hard part is judging what our new president will do when
the facts just dont show him in a winning light. In the meantime, lets hope the president rereads his oath of office.

Pitzer student Shivani Kavuluru reacts to the comments of another Claremont Colleges student. Colleges students came out in force to support the
resolution and to ask that the council declare Claremont a sanctuary city.

Donald Trump supporter Raul Rodriguez Jr. of Apple Valley chants USA as he tries to shout down other
attendees at the Claremont City Council Chamber on Tuesday. The opposing sides argued throughout the
meeting, with two men even getting in to a physical scuffle at one point.

City council meeting draws


belligerence, disagreements

he Claremont City Council approved a resolution affirming the


citys pledge toward diversity during a packed, rousing and tense Tuesday
night meeting.
Mayor Sam Pedroza, Mayor Pro Tem Larry
Schroeder and Councilmember Joe Lyons voted in
favor of the resolution, Councilmember Opanyi
Nasiali voted against it and Councilmember Corey
Calaycay abstained.
The resolution followed an outcry from members
of the public who called on the city in December to
designate Claremont a sanctuary city. It affirms the
citys commitment to diversity and civil rights, and
highlights the fact that the Claremont Police Department would not arrest people based solely on the immigration status.
The resolution was not to designate Claremont a
sanctuary city. At the recommendation of its attorney, city staff noted the phrase isnt well defined, as
there are multiple definitions.
Nonetheless, many of the 109 speakers who
crowded the council chamber passionately spoke for
and against a more formal sanctuary city ordinance.
Supporters claimed it would help and protect undocumented Claremonters, and detractors warned it would
violate federal law and enable crime.
The council chamber was packed nearly an hour
before the meeting began. Anti-sanctuary city activists, the vast majority of whom were not from
Claremont, held up signs showing victims of undocumented immigrants and praise for newly-elected President Donald Trump.
President Trump has made cracking down on sanctuary cities a priority, and signed an executive order
Wednesday cutting federal funding from municipalities who have designated themselves as sanctuary
cities.
Before the meeting began, supporters and detractorswith members from both camps holding up
signswere debating with each other, which eventually led to competing chants of Migrant rights are

human rights and U-S-A.


At one point toward the end of the meeting, a quick
pushing match erupted between Apple Valley resident
Raul Rodriguez Jr., who opposed the resolution, and
Claremont resident Gustavo Ramirez, who is in favor
of equal rights for immigrants, as they tried to block
each others signs.
As Assistant City Manager Colin Tudor explained
in his presentation, the city receives around $490,000
annually in federal funds$190,000 for the community development grant program, $125,000 for the
senior nutrition program, $120,000 from the Federal
Transit Administration and the Department of Transportation and $108,000 from the Surface Transportation Program used to pave roadways.
Discussion of making Claremont a sanctuary city
began last November, when five of the Claremont
Colleges joined other universities around the country
to urge the continuation of the Deferred Action for
Childhood Arrivals program, which identifies students who are not in the country legally. Pitzer College President Melvin Oliver also designated his
campus a sanctuary campus on November 30.
An anti-Muslim letter sent to the Islamic Center of
Claremont (ICC) in November was an additional catalyst for the city to act, Mr. Tudor said.
Public comment, which lasted into the early hours
of Wednesday, was contentious, with both sides offering impassioned pleas for and against a sanctuary city.
Many of the students speaking in favor of the resolution implored the council to look into alternative A
of the recommendation, which would ask the city
staff to develop an ordinance officially labeling Claremont a sanctuary city. Some vowed to register to vote
for the March election in Claremont to oust councilmembers were against the resolution.
It is critical that the city of Claremont join cities
and counties in California and the colleges in sending
a message to the Trump Administration that we recognize and respect the contribution that immigrants
make to the city, Angela Zambrano, Claremont resident and vice chair of the Latino Roundtable, said.
Most importantly, the city of Claremont is ready,
willing and able to defend the constitution which pro-

tects everyone in the United States regardless of their


immigration status.
Mellissa Martinez, whos family has called Claremont home for generations, reminded the council of
Claremonts troubled history, telling a story of how
her father was segregated at Sycamore School.
Claremont is and should always be a sanctuary
city. We should never go back in time to when it was
a place that segregated people based on where they
come from, she said.
Ms. Martinez related the story of her grandfather,
who immigrated from Mexico to Claremont and
worked as the first gardener at Pomona College. The
Martinez family stayed, she said, with her father
eventually completing his degree at Claremont Graduate University and working for the Claremont Unified School District for roughly 35 years.
Many of those against the resolution were
markedly combative when speaking to the council.
Arthur Schaper, president of the Beach Cities Republicans, shouted into the microphone as he accused the
city of multiple Brown Act violations for asking him
what city he lived in. After he said someone tried to
steal his phone, Mr. Schaper asserted that a sanctuary
city would invite lawlessness to the city.
As he was leaving the dais, Mr. Schaper shouted to
the jeering crowd, God bless Donald Trump! Suck it
up buttercupsyou lost, he won.

n her three-minute appeal to council, Chino resident Kathlyn Parker


recalled the murder of Kate Steinle,
a woman killed in San Francisco by
Francisco Sanchez, an undocumented
immigrant who had previously been deported and returned multiple times.
How many of you want to see your
young daughters slaughtered on the streets
of Claremont by a seven-time felon who
should have been deported five times? Ms.
Parker asked. Thats right, you dont, and
you dont figure you will.
You sit up there in your million dollar
homes and expensive schools, virtues signaling at the expense of the underserved and
underrepresented communities like
Pomona, who will deport illegal immigrants, she added.
Trevor Losh Johnson, a longtime Claremont resident, offered his position as a
homeowner.
I would like to thank the people of Upland and Rancho Cucamonga who came
out here tonight to voice their concerns for
my tax dollars, he quipped. I hope they
[anti-sanctuary city activists] feel welcome here. We are a welcoming community. And I hope we can continue that and
extend that welcome to the most marginalized in our communities.
Councilmember Joe Lyons was
adamantly in favor of the resolution, and

Why should we be afraid of


our federal government?
Is that the intent?
Sam Pedroza
Mayor of Claremont

seemed open to a sanctuary city ordinance,


even with the possibility of losing federal
funds.
It doesnt have anything to do with losing $500,000. It doesnt have anything to
do with the cost-benefit analysis that some
have gone through, he said. It has to do
with our moral and ethical obligation as representatives of the people. Thats what
Claremont is about and has been about and
is one of the reasons many of us move to
Claremont.
Councilmember Corey Calaycay related his own familys immigrant story, including his uncles long and painful process
to come to the United States legally. But he
abstained from voting, citing his concerns about casting a vote on behalf of the
people.
When we do a resolution, a concern I
have is it is in the name of the 36,000 residents of the city of Claremont, and that is
not a fair thing to put all residents on record
for something they may not agree upon,
he said.
Mayor Pro Tem Larry Schroeder said he
was not against entertaining an ordinance,
but also noted that the city would uphold
the 14th Amendment, which calls for the
right to due process for everyone.
There were some comments; if this
passes we would be overrun with crime, because of the illegal immigrants, he said.
Well, it hasnt happened yet, and weve
been doing this for a long, long time

Tuesday, January 17
Two Santa Barbara residents were arrested for being drunk in public. Officer
noticed the duo, identified as 41-year-old
Patricia Hennessey and 44-year-old
William Kirkland, Jr, jaywalking across
the intersection of Indian Hill Boulevard
and San Jose Avenue around 8:45 p.m.,
Lt. Mike Ciszek of the Claremont Police
Department said. They told police they
were unfamiliar with the area and were
looking for a place to stay, and admitted
to drinking earlier. Officers determined
they were too intoxicated to be outdoors
and transported them to CPD jail.
Wednesday, January 18
A home on the 600 block of Indian
Hill was burglarized for the second time
in five days. Between 8 a.m. and 7:30
p.m., an unknown thief forced open the
rear door and ransacked the home. Despite the forceful entry into the home, it
is unknown if any property was stolen.

An Upland woman was arrested on
drug and resisting arrest charges after
acting erratically at Casa 425. A call
came in around 11:00 p.m. regarding a
woman screaming in her room at an unknown person. When officer arrived,
they found 53-year-old Robyn Doebler
walking in the hotel courtyard. Ms. Doeblers mood appeared to be altered,
and she had a hard time sitting still, attempted to leave numerous times when
officers talked to her. As she was being
cuffed, she pushed back and kicked at officers. She was arrested for being under
the influence of a controlled substance
and resisting arrest and transported to

in passing a resolution that he felt was already affirmed in the citys charters. Mr.
Nasiali made reference to a line from the
classic film My Fair Lady: Dont talk
about love, show me.
I think our love in this city is clear, he
said. We dont just talk about it, we
show it.
Mr. Nasiali voted no on the resolution
but made a motion for the council to sign
an approval of the Bridge Act, a bipartisan
bill in Congress that would protect DACA
students.
LA County Board of Supervisors Hilda
Solis and Kathryn Barger supported the
same motion earlier this month. I feel more
comfortable to use the same approach they
used, Mr. Nasiali said. Instead of passing a resolution that puts us in an awkward
position.
Mayor Sam Pedroza, in his approval of
the resolution, talked about his fathers immigrant story, taking a job moving houses from San Diego into Tijuana and back

again.
So, yes, Im the son of a major lawbreaker, he said. I wonder if he ever
thought while he was on that roof, holding
up these high voltage wires, that his son
would become the mayor of a city like
Claremont.
Mr. Pedroza also called out those who
warned that federal funds could be curbed.
Why should we be afraid of our federal
government? Is that the intent? he asked.
The council passed the resolution just before 1 a.m. As soon as the vote was tallied,
the room erupted into thunderous applause from supporters, while those against
the measure shouted for a recall election.
The council also received a 20162017 mid-year budget report from Finance

council the city is on track to meet or exceed full-year projections. More on the

Claremont COURIER/Friday, January 27, 2017

Eight questions for eight candidates: Anthony Grynchal


efficient form of government, because the costs of the services provided to the customers directly equal the revenue
generated from the charges of the services provided. Hundreds of cities in CaliforniaRancho Cucamonga, the TriValley Water Districthave generated special water districts, and theyve been very effective in implementing that
as a strategy to run a successful water company. The special water district allows the city to work with other entities of government, so LA County would help us run it.
I believe this is something that needs to be looked into.
Short-term things are allocation rights. As a realtor, what
I found isand again, this is just me asking the people
when you own a home, you own the land on top of the
house, all the way to the core of the earth and the airspace
above. Well, Claremont sits on one of Californias largest
water basins, and its about 385 feet below our feet right
now. Ive been asking a lot of people these questions, and
theyve been telling me Golden State gets anywhere from
70 to 75 percent of the water that they sell to us coming
from this natural water basin. The question would be figuring out who gave allocation rights to Golden State Water and when, because they dont own the water theyre
harvesting, which is our water, and they are reselling it to
us. Thats something I believe also needs to be looked into

nthony Grynchal, 26, who calls


himself Mr. Claremont, is running for a seat on the city council.
He hopes to bring more transparency to the
city and to be a conduit for Claremonters
voices to be heard.
Why are you running for city council?
Im running because I truly love the people. And what
I want everyone to know is Ive been here. I went to Western Christian in Claremont, Im a local guy and I went to
Damien High School in La Verne and
COUNCIL
finished up at Cal Poly Pomona. Ive
ELECTION
worked really hard for the people selling homes. Ive saved my money, and I just got my dream
home here in Claremont. And I believe being a city council member is being a civil servant.
Ive come to the realization that my purpose in life is
to serve others and help everyone through this whole experience. I consider myself a selfless person, and Mr. Claremont is just a metaphor for the 35,000 to 40,000 Mr. and
Mrs. Claremonts out there who want their voices to be
heard. Im very transparent; a lot of people see me with
my face on the side of the car and my website. I did that
so people could feel comfortable approaching meso I
could answer questions they have about the community.
For the last four years, Ive been going door-to-door, not
only servicing real estate needs, but also asking people if
they have any questions on the community. To tell you the
truth, a lot of times I may not know the answer to a question, but I am relentless in asking more questions until I
find the answer. Im simply a vessel that allows the peoples voices and opinions to be heard.
It has been brought to our attention by residents that
they are getting ads for your business alongside your
campaign material on their doorsteps. For many, this
represents a conflict of interest with your business and
your candidacy. How do you respond?
Ive actually contacted the FPPC, the Fair Political Practice Commission. I have completely separated money that
Im spending for the campaign and money that Im spending for advertising for real estate. I have everything on the
form 460, where they can see exactly how much money
I spent for real estate and how much money I spent for
campaign funds.
My real estate business doesnt interfere with the
campaign or the candidacy. Being a realtor has been an
honor because a lot of people have trusted me. I believe
as a realtor, youre a problem-solver. For most of the people whose homes Ive sold, its the biggest part of their
lives. And being able to handle that, being able to get from
point A to point B, Ive picked up a lot of skills along the
way. Its completely separate from me running for city
council. I just want to take those skills Ive learned and,
as Mr. Claremont, be a voice for the people.
I want to talk more about that moniker, Mr. Claremont. You trademarked that name in 2014. Tell us why
you think Mr. Claremont is a fitting title for you?
Since I was a young boy, Ive had this mindset that every
day Im here is an opportunity. I was adopted when I was
young, and my sister is from Latin descent and Im from
Irish descent. Not only do I have this mindset of being grateful about growing up in Claremont, its just the whole different way of thinking, seeing, being in a school where
there are people from all over the world and learning so
much about different cultures and backgrounds. Im look-

ing at things differently, being able to really appreciate


where Im at and realize that its all about human connection
and serving others.
In college, I got an opportunity to go to India to help mass
produce a tree called moringa oleifera, a super food. Look
at a horse that survives on hay and water, well, this is like
hay for human beingsthis tree with the leaves ground
up. Its right now considered the number-one source of
combating malnutrition worldwide. So what I learned from
going out there in Punjab, India, is how to break these cultural barriers and communicate with the people.
When I did a lot of door-knocking in Claremont, a lot
of people asked me, Why dont you run for city council? They said we need some young blood to shake things
up. And I said, Well, to tell you the truth, the only value I could provide is making your voice heard, and they
said thats what they need. I just believe in it. I believe and
know in my heart I want to serve the city of Claremont
until the day I die.
Some people are questioning the validity of the commission process in Claremont. What are your thoughts?
I think commissions are extremely important, and I think
we need to have more collaboration with the Claremont
Colleges. The Claremont Colleges, the school district and
the city council are separate entities, and I think all the commissions in Claremont need to have more of a voice.
All last year, I had the awesome opportunity to be an
advocate for the Claremont Homeless Advocacy Program
(CHAP). I believe in it because Im selling homes here
in Claremont and I give my time, my money and my energy into advocating for the homeless in our streets to get
back on their feet. There are hundreds of people involved
in the CHAP program, just to get 10 people off the street
and get them on their way. There are a lot of boards and
commissions involved in getting 10 people off the street.
What Ive learned is that we need to have all these commissions, boards and advisories working together. Everyone needs to be working together and everyones voice
needs to be heard to make a well-oiled machine.
We heard you have a specific solution to solving the
water issue in Claremont. Tell us more about that.
Hundreds of cities in California, including Rancho Cucamonga, have formed what is called the special water
district. It is a public corporation formed under the provisions of Division 12 of the state water code. Its the most

What can the city do to curb the rise of property


crimes and residential burglaries?
Ive been hearing a lot about peoples homes getting
robbed and whatnot. It always comes down to financial
transparency. For example, in this water caseI relate back
to that because if were spending all this money, whos going to pay these lawyer fees? Its going to come out of the
general fund. If money comes out of the general fund, do
they take it from maintenance and sanitation? Do they take
it from lighting?
Euro Caf got robbed three times, and I talked to a lot
of people in the community and they say that shopping
center needs better lighting. But if were wasting money
on these attorneys and paying these fees and really looking into what things cost, then how are we going to get
better lighting? How are we going to get more cops in patrol? It all goes hand-in-hand. We have a tight community.
We have those signsSee Something, Say Somethingthats good, but I just think it comes back down
to financial transparency.
What are your solutions for crowd control at the
Claremont Hills Wilderness Park?
To tell you the truth, I dont know how to properly answer that question. I would ask the correct people to find
a solution. I would relentlessly ask the people of Claremont, going door-to-door, and I would ask the city manager and I would ask all the commissions in Claremont
what they think about it, and develop an answer. And I think
there are a lot of very smart people here in Claremont with
a lot of great ideas. They can be heard along with the commissions, the council, the school board and the Colleges,
and come up with something that could be feasible.
If you had a magic wand, what would you change
about Claremont?
It would be awesome if everyone in Claremont got a
quarterly update in the mail about financial transparency
how much the city made and where they spent the money. If people had a better idea of where their tax dollars
are going, they would be more inclined to voice their opinion and we could do a lot better. Again, it comes back down
to peoples voices being heard. Im just an extremely selfless person. I dont want to give off the wrong impression.
My mission is to make sure all the Mr. and Mrs. Claremonts voices are heard.

Fake news and other fallacies


by Mellissa Martinez

n the early 90s while visiting a remote


island in Greece, I was approached by
an elderly Greek woman clutching a
copy of the National Enquirer. The cover featured a picture of an outstretched hand
holding a fully formed dog the size of a pinky
finger. The woman jabbed at the image in
awe showing it to me. She wondered if we
actually had pinky-sized dogs in America. Politely, I responded to her slowly and clearly, No maam, its not real. Its fake news.

I had no idea that many years later the expression fake


news would become such a controversial component of
our national discourse. In fact, six months ago the term
was almost nonexistent. Perhaps it was occasionally used
in reference to satirical sites, such as The Onion. A headline like Mother Still Searching for Preschool that Focuses
Exclusively on her Son is clearly not real, but does hint at
elements of reality. Every once in a while, a duped reader protests with a Facebook rant, those helicopter parents are so entitled! Like my younger self in Greece, the
posters friends must tactfully point out that its not real.
Its fake news.
In recent months, however, fake news has become a
widely lobbed insult aimed even at traditionally respected media outlets. This has left me wondering, what does

LEX

CITY
it really mean anymore?
According to one article in Slate, the expression comes
largely from the recent presidential campaign, when online entrepreneurs and pranksters found that they could
reach huge audiences via social media by fabricating sensational stories that played to readers partisan biases.
Shockingly, it has been discovered that a large number of
these stories were invented by Macedonian teens who found
that they could make money by pilfering incredibly reallooking but entirely fabricated (politically biased) stories
on Google and Facebook.
One might assume that these stories would be easy to
spot. I, for one, saw Facebook links to seemingly legitimate articles stating that Hillary Clinton was involved in
sex scandals or that Donald Trump had been endorsed by
the Pope. When these stories appeared on my feed, my
brain immediately went to the pinky-sized dog scenario
not realbut apparently, this was not the case with everyone.

A recent study out of Stanfords Graduate School of Education shows that college students were duped again and
again by fake news stories. Although Stanford students
should be savvy enough to spot a fake, the study shows
overwhelmingly that they are not. It asserts that if they can
be bamboozled, it is plausible that older, less computerproficient adults may also believe false news stories.
I am never one to lament a new addition into our lexicon, but the problem with fake news is that it no longer
describes National Enquirer-like publications, satirical sites
and purposeful pranks. It has quickly become overused
and corrupted.
In just a few short months, I have seen Facebook friends
smack the fake news stamp on old stories, and on stories they disagree with or simply dont understand.
When Trump called CNN fake news, he took all power away from the words. They became the equivalent of
sticking fingers in ones ears and saying I am not listening
to you.
As for Trumps very own tall tales, his writers are already coming up with a variety of expressions to defend
them. In fact, his top advisor unveiled the first coinage this
weekalternative factswhich was eagerly embraced by his supporters. I suppose there will be more
where that came from.
The American public will have to endure substitute actualities, back-up bottom-lines and replacement certainties as there is really no telling what he might say (or
do).

Celebrations the world over, over time

Growing up celebrating holidays such as Christmas, Easter, Passover, Fourth of July and Thanksgiving were mostly for being with family, having interesting meals with some
traditional foods to look forward to and gift giving.
Christmas was the big one. We found filled stockings early in the morning and were allowed to open them before
breakfast. We had a tree that my Italian Grandfather took
pains to decorate in his own deliberate style with aluminum
icicles, lights and spray snow. Presents were hidden but I
usually found the hiding place and poked them for days trying to discover what was inside. Thanksgiving had the most
traditional menu and was a time for gathering with all old
friends and family. Easter was for egg hunts and Passover
was when my natural father came out from New York for
work and we had a Seder dinner at the Country Club.
Then I started traveling and celebrations changed depending where I was. My trips were often long, some lasting a year or more. In Israel, we celebrated Hanukkah. I
lit the candles for each of the eight nights, sang the songs,
spun the dreidle and gambled along with the others. It was
fun but it wasnt Christmas. One friend brought me a lovely book of photographs of the Negev Desert as a Christmas present figuring I might be missing my celebrations

and my family. He was right, I did miss our traditions.


One Christmas I spent in Sweden, everything was covered in snow. My friends sister and her two small children
had come up to celebrate. That meant that my friend, Susannas husband had to dress up like Father Christmas. No
one seemed to notice that he had slipped out of the room
but suddenly an old bent man entered the front door with
a face covered in black, carrying a big bag. He gave the children gifts and I dont think they recognized him as their uncle. Then we ate a traditional Swedish Christmas dinner and
songs were sung at the table while drinking Schnaps.
In Greece I lived on a small island. People didnt have
Christmas trees or lights or presents. They gambled,
adults and children alike, throwing the dice for a form of
the card game 21, which they called 31. My children enjoyed playing cards, sipping green liquor and eating candy. On Epiphany, the Priest came down to the harbor and
all the boys stood shivering in their bathing suits waiting
to dive into the freezing sea to find the gold cross which
the Priest had flung into the water. The boy who found the
cross carried it throughout the village showing everyone
how clever he was and collecting money from each family.
Greek Easter was always the holiest holiday of the year
and preparations took days to complete. The body of Christ
was placed on a raised platform and the children crawled
back and forth under it. They told me that only Orthodox
people could do this. I didnt ask any more but stayed upright. Boys spent days and days making small bags filled
with gun powder. I now realize they were making small
bombs, some were carried in their pockets. My sons were
very involved in this craft. Houses and walls were white
washed in preparation for the holiest of nights when, at midnight, after the church service the Priest announced that
Christ had risen and the children went wild throwing their
bombs against the pure white walls and white washed

by Jan Wheatcroft
village houses. Poster signs would begin to appear on the
Church walls showing a very big nosed man running away
with an open suitcase filled with money falling out of it.
That was my first time seeing Greek Anti Semitism.
Living in Greece I found the celebrations interesting,
asked lots of questions but it was only The Christmas that
I missed and I tried to keep that tradition alive with my sons
in our small one room cottage. We decorated a branch for
a tree and had a few gifts. One year, four of us spent Christmas in Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico. Paper bags lined
the way up to the church. Inside each bag was a burning
candle. It was crisp and cold and the small, bright lights were
so welcoming. People sang in Spanish as we walked along.
It was nice to be in a familiar place doing something unfamiliar
My friend and I happened to be in Hanoi, Vietnam during their Tet celebration a few years ago. I was excited about
it because I thought it would include parades, tiger costumes,
music and great street food and everybody would be full
of joy and laughter. I guess I must have gotten this mixed
up with a Chinese celebration. Tet lasted for four days. We
were staying in a hotel in the old part of town. Hanoi went
dead for those four days. No street food, no restaurants
open, no music or parades, no shops to visit, no museums
to see. For each of the four days, people visited their families and ate and we scrambled to find a tourist restaurant
that was open. We laugh about this now.
I grew up in Los Angeles. Before my mother remarried
we lived in the Fairfax area. Every Christmas when I was
small, my mother drove the two of us to the Padua Hills
Theater. It was a long time ago and there were no freeways
so the drive was long. We would have a lovely Mexican
lunch and the servers wore traditional embroidered dresses and twirly skirts. I loved the hand work and the bright
colors. We watched the performance of Las Posadas as the
villagers reenacted Mary and Josephs search for a place
to stay. After the play, we came back into the dining room
and had Mexican hot chocolate and bunuelos, crispy doughnuts to dip in the thick chocolate drink. It this experience
that called me to settle in Claremont.
Im glad I had the chance to join in to the celebrations
of familiar holidays as I have traveled and lived in different places. Even for an LA girl, being in snow changes the
holiday. It made me feel as if I lived in a Christmas card.
As for other holidays, I am always ready for something new.

transfer the control of our water system
from one third party (Golden State Water) to another third party (city of LaVerne)? Our city does not have the time or
the expertise to run a water system, so
why does it believe it could effectively
manage a third party operator?
The city manager testified at trial that
the city did not intend to build new facilities recommended by its own consultant,
nor did it intend to change the operations
of the water system. So what added value
can the city contribute in the highly unlikely event that the decision is ultimately
reversed?
Claremont has already wasted $14
million ($6.3 million of our own expenses and another $7.54 million to reimburse Golden State Water) of the citys
limited funds on this misguided venture.
Why would it even consider spending
additional funds on an appeal, without a
solid basis for expecting a different result? Perhaps, the city will enlighten us at
the January 31 special meeting.
In March, we have the opportunity to
elect leaders who can guide us to a better

A better way forward


by Jim Belna

n Tuesday evening,
the Claremont City
Council will hold a
special session to discuss its
options on how to proceed following the Superior Courts
dismissal of our eminent domain lawsuit against Golden
State Water.
Regrettably, it seems that the only
option on the table is an appeal of the
decision. Filing an appeal in this case
will be like going over Niagara Falls in
a barrel: there will be no turning back,
the end result is completely predictable,
and the landing is going to be extremely unpleasant. There is a better
way, if the council can be persuaded to
get serious about fixing the situation we
are in.
First, they must stop pretending that
this takeover attempt has been anything
but a disaster. The lawsuit has already
cost us $6.2 million for our own legal
fees, and what is left in our reserves
will be just enough to cover the $7.5
million that we owe Golden State to reimburse its litigation costs.
Second, the council can immediately
make our financial situation better by
negotiating a settlement of the lawsuit
with Golden State. The company may
be willing to make a substantial concession on its reimbursement claim if we
forego our right to an appeal that we
have no chance of winning anyway.
Third, the council must understand
that there is no need for Claremont to
file an appeal. We can accomplish the
same objective a fresh start after a
badly fouled-up takeover attempt
simply by waiting to see what happens
in the city of Ojais eminent domain
lawsuit against Golden State. Most importantly, we won't risk running up our
reimbursement debt to Golden State by
several million more dollars if we lose
the appeal.

VIEWPOINT

Ojai has always had a much stronger


case than Claremont. If they lose in
court, we will know for sure that we
could never have won. But if Ojai is
successful which is to say that if they
prevail in the right-to-take challenge,
have that decision hold up on appeal,
get a favorable result at a valuation
trial, and actually lower the cost of
water to residents without sacrificing
qualitythen it might make sense for
Claremont to revisit our own situation.
And if we decide to try again, we will
not be burdened by all of the mistakes
which doomed our first attempt.
Finally, if the council wants to take
some really constructive action right
now, they can stop listening to the highpriced lawyers who forgot to advise us
that we could end up paying $14 million just to find out that the city didnt
have the legal right to take over the
water system.
These same lawyers supervised the
preparation of a seriously flawed feasibility study, insisted on keeping it secret, and ignored repeated warnings
that its conclusions were off by more
than $100 million. And despite spending almost $5 million in pretrial preparation, they failed to discover the La
Verne water agencys troublesome history of lead contamination, which
turned out to be one of the critical factors in the courts decision. They are no
longer worthy of our trust or our
money.
This takeover effort has proven to be
a costly lesson for Claremont, but if our
council will take the necessary steps to
cut our losses and start rebuilding our
reserves, it is one that we may be lucky
enough to survive. On the other hand,
should the council decide to pursue a
costly and unnecessary appeal, we may
all find out the hard way what it means
to risk more money than we can afford
to lose.

honor the fact that both teams were
undefeated league champions in the Palomares League
for the third consecutive year. The girls had also been
crowned Southern Section Division II champions and
both teams were state champions in Division II.
As we reported earlier, CHS school girls cross country coach Bill Reeves was named Southern Section Girls
Cross-Country Coach of the year by the California
Coaches Association.
Next up, the board bid adieu to its latest student board
members, Trevor Schwartz of San Antonio High School
and Danielle Pichay Claremont High School. Student
board members dont vote on issues, but they can provide
valuable student input. In addition, they provide an update each meeting of the doings of a handful of CUSD
schools, including their own.
After thanking them for their service, board members
took note of some special aspects of the two outgoing
student board members.

Danielle, they noted, represents the second CHS student board member to be crowned homecoming queen at
Claremont High School. CHSs last representative was
2015 homecoming queen Raven Wilbur.
They saluted Trevor for breaking the record as the
longest-sitting student board member. He has served
three semesters as San Antonio High Schools student
rep, going from a shy novice to a confident part of the
team.
From the start, Trevor has worn a different suit, always
snappy, a habit that has caught the attention of current
board president Mr. Nemer. Per usual, he pointed out that
the teen has more suits than he does. I dont know how
he has the closet space, he joked.
The Single Plans for Student Achievement were then
presented by delegations, led by the school principals,
from Sycamore and El Roble Intermediate Schools. It is
an annual process through which schools report on the
progress they made towards goals set last year, new goals
they have set for the coming year and the ways they are
nurturing student success on their campus.
More on how CUSD schools are adapting to the Common Core standards and associated testingas well as
how they are working towards goals like whole child development and improving the campus climatewill be
featured in a future edition of the COURIER.
Lisa Shoemaker, assistant superintendent of business
services, then delivered a state-required presentation on
the 2015-16 Audited Financial Report.
Everything was in order but Ms. Shoemakerwho in
the wildly-fluctuating world of state and federal financing for schools is always looking to the horizon to try
and discern whats next. She warned that in the coming
months, CUSD might find itself in a tough spot finan-

cially. Claremont schools have found themselves among


the lowest-funded 25 percent of California schools, because of their demographics.
Some of the most impactful news to come out of the
board meeting regards a matter of personnel. Longtime
Danbury Principal Stephen Hamilton will be retiring
very soon and, with all mid-year retirements, it means
that an interim principal must be found while the district
looks for a qualified permanent administrator.
It can be a tricky process, especially at a school like
Danbury, which serves disabled students, with a special
emphasis on those who are orthopedically handicapped
or medically fragile. Luckily, former Danbury principal
and director of special education, has agreed to step up to
the plate. He previously served as interim principal at
Sumner toward the end of the 2011-2012 school year, he
is imminently qualified to help with the transition.
After the meeting, Mr. Ward noted that it is not unusual for a school principal to retire mid-year. In fact, he
said, it can be a win-win. The timing often works out well
for an administrator, when it comes to their retirement
package, and it gives the district a chance to do a really
thorough, deep search for the perfect replacement.
The next board meeting will be held on Thursday, February 2 at the Richard S. Kirkendall Education Center,
located at 170 W. San Jose Ave. in Claremont.
Meetings are called to order at 6:30 p.m., with time
for public comment before the board retires for a closed
session to discuss items like personnel issues and legal
matters. They then reconvene at 7 p.m. for the open session of the board.

OBITUARIES

Educator, missionary, friend


After a valiant three-month struggle
with complications from a spinal fracture and lymphoma, Patricia Jeannette
Patterson, a resident of Pilgrim Place
since December 2000, died peacefully
on January 10, 2017 at the Health Services Center of Pilgrim Place. She was
81.
Born May 3, 1935 as the eldest child
of Lester and Hilda Null Patterson, she
grew up with a sister and two brothers,
working on their farm near Gamber in
Carroll County, Maryland. Always a serious student in every school grade, Ms.
Patterson earned a bachelors degree in
English and education from Western
Maryland College, now McDaniel, and
a masters degree in religion and literature from Drew University.
Besides teaching high school English
at her alma mater in Westminster,
Maryland she worked for almost 40
years with the United Methodist
Church in various capacities. She was
an educational missionary and associate professor at Aoyama Womens Junior College and University in Tokyo,
Japan from 1957 to 1972. She was
called to the New York-based executive
staff of the mission board in 1972, with
successive positions in Missionary Affairs and as a liaison in programmatic
relations with Indochina, Japan and
Korea, working to end the war in Viet
Nam and consulting with Protestant
church leaders, Vietnamese and US ne-

gotiators. She also participated in ecumenical support for Korean peace and
unification (1972-1990). She was coordinator and executive for the JapanNorth American Commission on
Cooperative Mission (JNAC), based in
New York but including five denominations in the United States, two in
Canada and two in Japan (1990-2000).
Pat described the primary influences
on her life. My work as a mission-related person shaped my career and my
Christian commitment. The suffering of
the Vietnamese in the US war, the
struggle of the Korean people for

Bill Vaskis
A community memorial service for Waldemar Bill Vaskis is
planned for 2 p.m. on Sunday,
January 29 at the Garner House
in Memorial Park, 840 N. Indian
Hill Blvd., Claremont.

Mr. Vaskis, a longtime Claremont High School history teacher


who influenced generations of
students, died December 21,
2016 at Mt. San Antonio Gardens. He was 78.

A conversation with Ralph


Nader at Scripps College

ince the publication in 1965 of his


bestselling critique of the car industry,
Unsafe at Any Speed,
Ralph Nader, activist,
lawyer and sometime
politician has been agitating for causes near
and dear to the progressive American agenda
for the past 50 years.
Mr. Nader will make an appearance in Claremont on
Tuesday, February 21 from 6 to
7 p.m. at Garrison Theater, 241
E. Tenth St.
In the wake of an election
season that has illuminated

striking divisions within the


American populace and
prompted immense public reflection on what we believe to
be our fundamental rights and
freedoms, Mr. Nader will reflect on his passions and lifes
work as an activist now working in Trumps America.
Mr. Nader was named one of
the hundred most influential
figures in American history by
The Atlantic, and as one of the
most influential Americans of
the 20th century by Time and
Life magazines. Mr. Naders recent books include Unstoppable, The Good Fight and
the bestseller Seventeen Traditions.

democracy and human rights, and the


constancy of women to be fully human
despite sexist circumstances, all inspired and shaped me. She was an active leader of Pilgrim Place programs
such as World Affairs and Doing Theology. She also convened the Pomona
Valley Peace Network and supported
local justice and environmental groups.
Along with all these endeavors and
accomplishments, she was a warm,
generous and loyal friend, a great team
player and a staunch encourager of others, including her first Bible class of
Japanese college students, with whom
she was still enjoying a lively relationship lasting six decades. She loved
good food, especially Japanese meals at
Hayato and Italian spaghetti at Eddies.
While ailing, she was comforted by
soothing classical music. And though
she lived most of her life in big cities
around the world, her rural origins
nourished her love of nature wherever
she found herself. For the past 30 years,
Pat would retreat to her little house in
beloved green Berkshires around Alford, Massachusetts. She wrote hymns
and many poems to honor people and
events; she published five books of her
poetry illustrating her perceptions of
the natural world and the world of
human relations. Pilgrim Place named
her Poet Laureate during its 2015 centenary celebration. Ruth Harris, her life
partner, with whom she collaborated

for many years in their professional


work in the United Methodist Church,
died in 2013.
Her loved ones are grateful for the
ministrations of doctors, nurses and
caregivers at Pilgrim Place.
Pat (Trish to her family) is survived by her sister and brother-in-law,
Vivian and Jack Alvrus of Conyers,
Georgia, sister-in-law Rosalie Patterson
of Gettysburg, sister-in-law Elizabeth
Harris May of Phoenix and brother-inlaw Guy Harris of Des Moines; nieces
Annalisa Alvrus of Tempe, Arizona,
Rebekka Alvrus Davis of Snellville,
Georgia, Sharon Patterson of Gettysburg, Roxanna May of Phoenix,
Catherine May of Tempe and Rebecca
Harris of Oakland; nephews Russell
Patterson and his wife Joanne of Cosby,
Tennessee, Jackson Alvrus and his wife
Michelle of Wake Forrest, North Carolina, Philip and Suzanne May of
Phoenix, Michael May of Corvallis,
Washington and Mark Harris of Nevada, Indiana.
Her memorial service is set for Sunday, February 19 at 3:30 p.m. in Decker
Hall of Pilgrim Place. Memorial gifts
may be made to the Pilgrim Place Residents Health and Support Program, the
Center for Process Studies at Claremont School of Theology (CST); the
Institute for Post-Modern Development
of China at CST or Uncommon Good,
Claremont.

Claremont music, art collide at dA gallery show


Three Claremonters have been featured in the
Biennial Artisans of Musical Design show at the
dA Center for the Arts, 252-D S. Main St.,
Pomona.
A closing reception will take place Saturday,
January 28 at 7 p.m. at the gallery. Its free admission and all ages are welcome.
The show demonstrates and promotes unique
musical instrument design and building techniques happening in our community.
Warren Singleton handcrafts baroque period
stringed instruments inspired by original surviving instruments of the English, French, and
German periods of classical viol making. His
instruments are built on commission worldwide.
Sculptor Kirk Delman creates unique pieces
that stretch the boundaries of traditional instru-

ment design creating beautiful, functional art.


For this show he's built an upright electric bass
that pivots within a six-foot steel circle balanced
on angular reclaimed redwood beams.
Martin Maudal, a luthier who harvests his
own wood designed a wood face version of
the traditional resonator guitar.
Pomona-based street artist Angel Once,
known for his iconic Pink Elephant imagery on
murals from Boston, to the Bay Area to Miami,
painted a 6-foot x 2-foot cajn table drum. The
multi-chambered instrument can be played by
12 musicians at once producing a variety of
tones and pitches.
Other participating artists include Henry
Barnes, Richard Barnes, Kristen Erickson, A.
Freeman, Michael Kotzen and Vicky Rosas.

COLOR ME!

uthor Mark Twain is known for his gift with


dialects. A dialect is a regional way of speaking. For instance, in our part of the country,
we usually ask for a soda or, maybe, for our favorite
soft drink by name: Ill have a Coke. In much of the
rest of the country, soda is referred to as pop.
Two of his most famous stories, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, are placed in the madeup town of St. Petersburg on the banks of the Mississippi River, a
setting inspired by Twains boyhood town of Hannibal, Missouri.
Mark Twain, whose real name was Samuel Clemens, skillfully
weaves between the more proper language of Tom and the exuberant
slang of his friend Huckleberry Finnwhos been running wild and
living on his ownand the dialect of the local African American
people who in that time and in that place were kept as slaves. (Many
see The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn as one of the most powerful books showing that slavery is wrong.)
Heres a bit of the book from when 12-year-old Tom, forced to
paint a fence as a chore by his Aunt Polly, gets his friends to actually
PAY himwith apples and a bunch of boyhood treasuresto do the
whitewashing for him. He is certainly a clever boy, which you can
hear in his manipulative and dialect-heavy words.
NonoI reckon it wouldn't hardly do, Ben. You see, Aunt
Polly's awful particular about this fenceright here on the street,
you knowbut if it was the back fence I wouldn't mind and she
wouldn't. Yes, she's awful particular about this fence; it's got to be
done very careful; I reckon there ain't one boy in a thousand, maybe
two thousand, that can do it the way it's got to be done.

Secret Garden brings magic to Lewis Family Playhouse

he world of vocabulary is wide as


the sea. Did you know there are a
lots of foreign words describing a
very particular feeling, person or situation
that theres no word in English for, but
which all of us will recognize.

Try using one of these with your friends. Theyll


look confused but when you explain the meaning,
theyll get it.
Hyggelig, a Danish word meaning:
Taking pleasure from the presence of gentle, comforting and soothing things; a feeling of friendship,
warmth, peace and contentment and a comfortable
and cozy atmosphere.
Still dont understand? Picture yourself drinking a
cup of hot chocolate with your favorite cousin or
friend while listening to the raindrops on the roof of
your warm house.
Resfeber, a German word meaning:
The tangled feelings of fear and excitement before a
journey begins.
Yoko meshi, a Japanese phrase meaning:
The stress of speaking in a foreign language.
Komorebi, a Japanese word meaning:
A scattered, dappled lifhgt you see when sunlight is
filtered by the trees.

he MainStreet Theatre Company will present a


production of Frances Hodgson Burnetts childrens classic The Secret Garden from January 28 through February 12 at the Lewis Family
Playhouse at Victoria Gardens.
The book, first published in 1911, tells the story of
spoiled and sickly Mary Lennox, a 10-year-old who has
lived her entire life in India. Her parents supplied her
with servants to order around and everything she
wanted, but gave her almost no attention.
After she is suddenly orphaned, she is sent to live
with her reclusive uncle in the moors of Yorkshire, a
grassy and rural area of northern England. You can expect plenty of local dialects. For instance, a young in-

habitant of the area refers to a dying plant that still has


some life in it as being wick.
Mary discovers a hidden garden, long neglected but
full of potential. As she begins to tend to the overgrown
garden, her life and those around her are magically
transformed.
This show is recommended for children ages 7 and
up. Tickets are $18, $16 for youths. Specially priced
$10 tickets are available for the opening performance
on January 28, but youll want to check to make sure
they havent sold out.
Lewis Family Playhouse is located at 12505 Cultural
Center Dr. in Rancho Cucamonga. For information, call
(909) 477-2752 or visit lewisfamilyplayhouse.com.

Wordy WORD S e a r c H

UNPACK YOUR ADJECTIVES


An adjective is a word that describes a person, place or thingor more than one person, place
or thing. When it comes to writing, adjectives can really help paint a picture.
You could write, I saw a horse in the pasture. If you really want your readers to see that horse
right along with you, however, try throwing in some adjectives.
I saw a frisky horse running in the pasture. He was reddish-brown and had a small, white mark
in the shape of a star on his forehead. As I drew closer, I saw that his eyes were bright and intelligent.
In this weeks Claremont Kids section, our word search features a whole bunch of adjectives that
can help you tell it how it is.

adorable
adventurous
baggy

Shlimazl, a Yiddish
word for:
A chronically unlucky person. Think of
Charlie Brown, or of
the Baudelaire Orphans in the Lemony
Snicket series.

bold

Gkotta, a Swedish
word meaning:
To wake up early in
the morning with the
purpose of going outside to hear the first
birds sing.

grotesque

Gattara, an Italian word for:


A woman, often old and lonely, who devotes herself
to stray cats.

unlucky

complicated
courageous
dazzling
glorious
outlandish
quaint
quarrelsome
smoggy

And I know what all you friends of felines are saying. Whats wrong with devoting yourself to cats?
Sounds about right to me.

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

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING


NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Council of the City of Claremont will conduct a
public hearing to consider the sale of 13,360 square feet of excess land approximately 80
feet north of the northern terminus of Spring Street, and an associated lot line adjustment
(Files: 11-MP08 and 16-LL01) related to the previously approved vacation of 2,700 square
feet of excess right-of-way (ROW) at the northern terminus of Spring Street.
The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 14, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. in the Claremont
City Council Chamber, 207 Harvard Avenue. All interested persons are invited to attend
and provide comments.
This item is exempt from environmental review pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section
15061(b)(3) as an activity that is covered by the general rule that CEQA applies only to projects which have the potential for causing a significant impact on the environment. The vacation of the excess ROW and sale of the Remainder Parcel for the continuation of an
existing commercial use will not have a significant effect on the environment because no
physical changes to the environment will be occurring.
Additionally, the sale of surplus property is categorically exempt pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15312 (Class 12) as the sale of the surplus property has no Statewide, Regional, or area wide concern, and the property does not have any significant values for
wildlife habitat or other environmental purposes.
Moreover, the Lot Line Adjustment is categorically exempt pursuant to CEQA Guidelines
Section 15305(a) (Class 5) as it is a minor Lot Line Adjustment that does not result in the
creation of any new parcels.
None of the exceptions to the categorical exemptions set forth in State CEQA Guidelines
Section 15300.2 applies to the proposed project because the proposed project: (1) is not located in a uniquely sensitive environment; (2) is not located within a highway officially designated as a State scenic highway; (3) is not located on a hazardous waste site; (4) would
not have a cumulative impact; and (5) would not have a significant substantial adverse
change in the significance of a historical resource. Therefore, the general CEQA exemption
applies to this item, and in addition, the Class 12 and Class 5 categorical exemptions apply
and the exceptions do not apply.
Further, any parking lot changes will be subject to future improvements to the subject land,
and will be reviewed for its own environmental impact in the Citys required design review
process (once the applicable plans are submitted for review). Therefore, no further environmental review is required at this time.
Plans for the proposed vacation, sale, and lot line adjustment are available at the Planning
Division, located at Claremont City Hall, 207 Harvard Avenue. For more information on the
proposal, please contact Senior Planner, Mark Carnahan at (909) 399-5470, send written
comments to P.O. Box 880, Claremont, CA 91711-0880 or email them to
mcarnahan@ci.claremont.ca.us.
Finally, in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, any person with a disability who requires a modification or accommodation in order to participate in a City meeting should contact the City Clerk at (909) 399-5461 VOICE or 1-800-735-2929 TT/TTY
at least three working days prior to the meeting, if possible.

costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $ 861,192.89.
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

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

shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one

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: 1827 - 1829
WEST 47TH ST , Los Angeles, CA
90062 A.P.N.: 5015-003-018 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:
$ 589,824.71. 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 coun-

ty 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)960-8299 or visit this Internet Web site
http://www.altisource.com/MortgageServices/DefaultManagement/TrusteeServices.aspx using the file number assigned
to this case 2014-02887-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. Western Progressive,

WHAT GEOFF'S CLIENTS ARE SAYING . . .


Geoff exceeded our very high expectations in the recent sale of our Claremont Village property. We appreciated the professionalism,
courtesy and speed with which he shepherded the process from start to finish, keeping us fully informed throughout. It is a pleasure to see
a master at work!
V. Sathe & S. Sathe

All along the way, from the search, to offer, to escrow, to closing, the process was smooth and painless. We were informed all along the
way of what to expect and when. I cannot recommend Geoff Hamill highly enough. He is a professional who has years of knowledge he
generously shares.
J. Spera & A. Conway
Geoff did an outstanding job selling our Upland. His attention to detail was superior. We immediately recommended that our son list another
Upland property with Geoff due to our satisfaction with the service provided.
S. Campbell & O. Campbell
Geoff was fantastic and professional with my recent real estate purchase. To be honest, I was a little reluctant to call him because I thought he
only serviced higher value homes, but he treated it like it was a million dollar deal and was on top of every step in the process. He probably
didn't know it at the time, but I was preoccupied with my father being in and out of the hospital and I didn't have much time to be involved in
the transaction. Geoff took care of the whole thing and was a constant professional!
T. Freeman & M. Freeman
