Ban plastic bags

Dear Editor: On May 23rd, Los Angeles took a great leap forward. With a majority vote in city council, the city decided to ban the use of plastic grocery bags. Following San Francisco’s lead and setting the stage for bans throughout California, Los Angeles took a progressive step in support of the environment. Plastic bags contribute to life-threatening ocean pollution. They float in the Pa-

cific Ocean and destroy marine ecosystems. In some areas, plastic outweighs plankton 6 to one, severely disrupting the natural order of our planet. As a resident of Claremont, I urge the city to take a stand and follow the example of more than 40 communities throughout California. Help preserve our planet and ban the use of plastic grocery bags in all stores.

Fundraiser focuses on fun and Claremont preservation

F

or Claremont Heritage, there is no better way to honor the city’s past than to host an evening enjoying the trees, buildings and scenery that continue to keep Claremont a beacon of historical significance along the foothills.

Claremont Heritage is calling its patrons together for a night of dancing, merriment and celebrating preservation Saturday, June 16 for its yearly summer gala and fundraiser. The party takes place from 5 to 10 p.m. at the Pomona College Smith Fountain Courtyard. This year’s event, Party in the Piazza, is an open-air Italian affair that includes cocktails and Tuscan treats as well as silent and live auction items to benefit the organization’s continued mission of preservation. The $80 ticket, $85 for non-members, grants partygoers entry into the annual staple for the town historical society. It also gives locals the chance to honor both town history and organizations across the city striving to continue to instill that same ideal. “People don’t realize what we have here in Claremont in terms of architectural preservation. It’s an important part of our cultural fiber, it is why Claremont is so special,” said Executive Director David Shearer. “We could look to a number of cities not so far away that have not paid attention. You can drive through those cities and tell the difference.” Each year, a location is selected to reflect the city’s history. It was held Evan Smith levels the frets on a new acoustic bass on Thursday at the Folk Music Center

Commission to consider permit for third city smoke shop

A

nother smoke shop may be making its way to Claremont. On Tuesday, the Claremont Planning Commission will review a conditional use permit for MW Smoke Shop to set up residence in the Claremont Promenade Shopping Center at 444 Auto Center Dr. The center is just south of the 10 freeway along Indian Hill Boulevard. If approved, this will be the third smoke shop located within the city of Claremont. Smokers’ Boutique currently operates within Peppertree Square (southeast corner of Indian Hill Boulevard and Arrow

Highway), with Cigarettes for Less in the Vons Shopping Center on the southeast corner of Base Line Road and Mills Avenue. The applicant, Marwan Naber, has owned and operated a similar smoke shop in the city of Huntington Beach for the last 10 years. His proposed second location in Claremont would follow suit with his first establishment: it will specialize in the sale of cigarettes, cigars, other tobacco and tobacco-related products, and will include a cigar room with humidors. The shop will serve as a “point-of-sale” retail only, with

no designated “smoking lounge” or smoking area on the lease space. City staff is recommending the commission add specific stipulations on the lease to restrict the excessive use of signs on the building, as well as prohibit sales or sidewalk displays outside the location. “Staff does not believe that tobacco products, as well as associated advertising displays, are appropriate outdoor uses for the project site,” states the staff report. Slightly farther up Indian Hill Boulevard at Peppertree Square, the planning commission will also review a conditional

use permit for the sale of beer and wine at Peruvian eatery Kikiryki Restaurant. In addition, the commission will review the Environmental Impact Report for Claremont McKenna College’s master plan. Associated actions with the master plan include a code amendment, general plan amendment, zone change, conditional use permit and development agreement.   The Claremont Planning Commission meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the City Council Chamber at 225 W. Second St. The full agenda can be viewed at www.ci.claremont.ca.us.

POLICE BLOTTER
Thursday, May 24 A 26-year-old Montclair man’s crime didn’t go over quite as expected Thursday afternoon. Daniel Salas entered the Starbucks at 201 Yale Ave. and asked the barista for a glass of water. As the barista was distracted, Mr. Salas grabbed a couple of music discs on display. He left and immediately went over to Rhino Records to sell the CDs, but the music store did not accept the sale. Meanwhile, the barista had noticed Mr. Salas take the merchandise and called the Claremont police, who found him outside the record store. Mr. Salas admitted to the $28.17 swindle and was arrested for burglary. Friday, May 25 Claremont College construction took a significant hit last week. Property worth over $10,000 was stolen from a construction site located at Foothill and Claremont Boulevards. The thief, who remains unknown, stole saws, a nail gun and other construction equipment. **** A man arrested for indecent exposure at a Claremont public park Friday afternoon claimed he was only indulging himself on his way home from work. However, that was only part of the unusual police report taken around 3:45 p.m. in the 100 block of Sweetbriar Drive. Jason Bray, 20, of Rancho Cucamonga was found masturbating in the park wearing only a pair of pink high heels. Mr. Bray said he was on his way home from work in Pasadena when he decided to stop at the park with an urge to masturbate. He has no other connection to Claremont. Saturday, May 26 A picklock was apparently left unsatisfied after breaking into the vacated Harvard Square Cafe between Saturday, May 26, at 10 p.m. and 9 a.m. the following day. The alarm keypad had been forcefully removed from the wall and smashed to pieces on the floor. Other than the keypad, there was no damage to the building and no items reported stolen. There is no suspect at this time. Sunday, May 27 A false alarm landed a Santa Monica man in jail Sunday night. Police responded to Sprouts Farmers Market at 835 W. Foothill Blvd. around 10 p.m. re-

Competing crooks continue car burglaries in Mt. Baldy area
Claremont police have caught a man in connection with competing auto burglaries near Mt. Baldy Road and Evey Canyon. Earlier this month, police arrested 2 other men for allegedly breaking into at least 6 cars in the same area. Despite the arrests, break-ins continued to occur in the canyon area, alerting police to the potential of another set of crooks, according to Lieutenant Shelly Vander Veen. At 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 24, in the same location as the other burglaries, a man witnessed 2 subjects drive off in a white Oldsmobile after garding a suspicious man sleeping at a table. When police awoke Ronald Stark, 50, he asked for a paramedic to be called for a medical condition he would not disclose to police. The paramedics were called, but when they arrived Mr. Stark was uncooperative and verbally abusive to the first responders, according to Lt. Vander Veen. It was determined that Mr. Stark did not have a medical condition and instead was found to be under the influence of alcohol. He was arrested for public intoxication and held at the Claremont jail to detox. breaking into his vehicle. Similar to other incidents in the area, the car’s driver-side window had been shattered. Stolen were an iPod, wallet, PSP handheld game and cell phone. With information provided by the witness, the Claremont police were able to track the burglars’ vehicle to a residence in Pomona. The next day they contacted the residents of the home and found Luis Campos, 22, in possession of the man’s stolen property as well as other stolen items. Though Mr. Campos was arrested, the second subject has yet to be identified. Monday, May 28 Just hours before volunteers and runners descended on Pomona College for the Run for the Red, police were called to campus for a different and unexpected occasion. Witnesses contacted police after seeing a reported dumpster fire near Carnegie Hall at 425 N. College Ave. A large pile of carpet was found on fire in the middle of the parking lot. The fire department responded and extinguished the fire, but no suspects or further evidence have been found at this time.

Change of fate for D'Emilio brings questions about the investigation

A

fter months of investigation and community uproar, Frank D’Emilio has been reinstated as a teacher for the fall. As many residents grapple with what proved to be an emotional narrative, lingering questions about the investigation remain unanswered.
Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Kevin Ward said that the Claremont Unified School District enlisted Workforce Investigations on the recommendation of the district’s legal counsel to investigate allegations that Mr. D’Emilio had failed to report suspected child abuse. This is the first time CUSD has utilized the services of Workforce Investigations or its lead investigator, Edward Saucerman. The use of a private investigator, according to Mr. Ward, was recommended because the district’s legal counsel felt the best practice was to hire an outside, impartial party to look into the matter. Brian Bock of Fagen, Friedman and Fulfrost, who has worked with Mr. Saucerman for 10 years, made the recommendation. “When an organization anticipates that a matter might become emotionally charged, conducting an internal investigation can unintentionally create a situation where people are accused of dredging up bias and blame,” Mr. Bock said. CUSD paid $125 per hour for Mr. Saucerman’s services with the total cost for the investigation, including meetings, interviews, analysis, drafting and transcription, coming in at just under $20,000. “From the onset, the district’s goal with this investigation was expressly to gather essential facts so the [district] could make an informed decision,” Mr. Bock said. “That is simply what Mr. Saucerman did in this matter.” Mr. Bock asserts that Mr. Saucerman was selected because he worked with other school districts in similar investigations for nearly a decade. “Given his reputation for reliably providing a thorough, thoughtful and honest work product, it was determined that he would be the right person to handle this matter for the district,” Mr. Bock said. But lack of information about Mr. Saucerman’s experience, his relationship with the law firm that recommended him, and conflicting reports on what was said and how some interviews were conducted, has given pause to some community members as to whether the investigation was truly impartial. It’s clear Mr. Bock and Mr. Saucerman had a business and personal friendship based on photographs of Mr. Saucerman with Mr. Bock and law partner Howard Friedman—attorneys from Fagen, Friedman

and Fulfrost—at an Angels baseball game that were posted to Facebook on April 6, during the time of the investigation. A Thursday morning call to Interim CUSD Superintendent Gloria Johnston as to whether she considered this off-the-job association appropriate had not been answered as of that afternoon. As part of the investigation, Mr. Saucerman interviewed and collected written documentation from Sumner School staff, with Claremont Teachers’ Association President Joe Tonan sitting in on at least one interview. Mr. Tonan contends the interview included leading and hypothetical questions, and the teacher was told that she could be fired depending upon the answers given. “The teacher was in a tough bind,” Mr. Tonan said. Mr. Saucerman denies the claim. “I was very shocked when I was reading [in the newspaper] that I had threatened someone, a teacher or a party. I didn’t threaten anyone,” Mr. Saucerman said. “That’s a fabrication. I treat everyone with respect.” Lita Abella, a current board member of the California Association of Licensed Investigators—a professional association of private investigators—has known Mr. Saucerman for many years. She also owns her own investigation firm and spent 20 years with the Los Angeles Police Department. “If you’re a good investigator, you don’t need to threaten anybody. That’s not what a professional does in any industry,” Ms. Abella said. Mr. Saucerman’s LinkedIn page states he completed the LAPD police academy in 1989 and, beginning in 1997, acted as a field-training officer with the Pasadena Unified School District for 8 years. Although not noted on his LinkedIn page, Mr. Saucerman also worked as a school police officer with Fontana Unified School District beginning in 1994 and ending with his resignation in May 1998, according to a Riverside Press-Enterprise article. Dates of employment with LAPD and the Pasadena Unified School District Police could not be verified. “What I can speak to is, first of all, I’ve been doing this for 23 years. I’m a retired police officer of 16 years,” Mr. Saucerman said. “I retired from the Pasadena Unified School District police department. I’ve taught police officers and I’ve trained officers on interview techniques and investigative techniques.” A request for Mr. Saucerman’s formal resume from Fagen, Friedman and Fulfrost was not fulfilled. The report and the Sumner staff The use of a private investigator in what was considered a personnel matter exacerbated an alreadytentative situation among Sumner staff. The report itself raised concerns with Mr. Tonan, who felt some of the responses to questions were not accurately re-

flected in the report. Additionally, terms like “founded,” “unfounded” and “sustained” were used liberally throughout the report to establish credibility or to discredit those who were interviewed, according to Mr. Tonan. At one point, Mr. Saucerman’s report expressed the following conclusion about Mr. D’Emilio. “This investigator did not find Mr. D’Emilio credible during the investigation…Although he admitted to being dishonest with [redacted], this investigator must question the overall integrity of Mr. D’Emilio.” Mr. Bock explained that Mr. Saucerman applied “the legal standard of the preponderance of evidence” to make a determination about the credibility of Mr. D’Emilio and other parties involved. “This preponderance standard is dictated by California courts and in layman’s terms means that it is ‘more likely than not’ that something occurred or did not occur,” Mr. Bock said. Jan B. Tucker, a private investigator out of Torrance and 7-term chairman of CALI, noted that this kind of legal terminology would be used more appropriately in police disciplinary actions, not in personnel investigations. “The use of terms like ‘sustained’ makes me think that Saucerman is running it like an internal affairs investigation at a police department,” Mr. Tucker said. “It’s a little like a kid playing dress-up. It is ridiculous for investigators to use terms like that. We are not judges.” Mr. Tucker, who has been a full-time, licensed private investigator in California since 1979, added that investigators are typically hired to conduct investigations and collect data through interviews, but not to draw conclusions. However, Mr. Saucerman contends that a private investigator’s task goes beyond just fact-finding, as investigators are paid to collect information and make a recommendation to the client based on what is gleaned. “We’re hired to do an investigation and make a determination,” he said. “Collecting evidence is part of the investigation, but it’s not all of it. An investigation is to make a determination on whether or not something occurred.” Mr. Bock stands by the report and investigation, stating, “It is a standard and proven practice to hire an outside, impartial investigator to thoroughly examine the situation, gather and report the facts.” Through community support and reconsideration by the board, Mr. D’Emilio will begin to put the ordeal behind him and return to the classroom. The methods used in the investigation, by CUSD and the board of education have undoubtedly impacted the community, but the lasting effect this has on future personnel matters remains to be seen.

Board reinstates former principal Frank D'Emilio as teacher

F

ormer Sumner Elementary School Principal Frank D’Emilio will continue his employment with the Claremont Unified School District, returning to a Claremont school as a classroom teacher in the 2012-2013 school year.

This announcement—made at a special school board meeting called on Wednesday, May 30—was a reversal of the CUSD board of education’s earlier decision at a May 3 school board meeting to dismiss Mr. D’Emilio from the district entirely. “The board believes you have much to offer to our future students,” CUSD Board President Jeff Stark said, addressing Mr. D’Emilio publicly after nearly 2 hours of closed-session deliberation. “I know it has been a stressful period for you and your family. Welcome home.” Mr. D’Emilio’s dismissal stemmed from a situation in which 2 female students, ages 7 and 8, reportedly engaged in activity that was sexual in nature. After learning of several inappropriate incidents that took place while her daughter was at school, the 8-year-old’s mother contacted the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) and was told to notify her daughter’s principal. Once notified of a case of abuse, it’s a school administrator’s sworn duty to report the incident to the DCFS.

Our tree heritage
by John Neiuber, president, Claremont Heritage

T

he spring equinox has passed and the days are growing longer as the summer solstice approaches. The sun has begun its trek northward and everywhere we look, trees are budding and spreading their canopies over streets, neighborhoods and parks. Spring is upon us, and one is hyperaware that “The City of Trees” is coming alive with the lush green foliage for which it is known.

Trees are one of the defining features of Claremont and its neighborhoods. They are loved for many reasons. They define the character and charm of a neighborhood and its homes; they offer a pleasant pedestrian experience; they absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen; they cool our homes; and they provide shade in our parks and public places. They are part of our way of life and have been so since the city was first settled. The history of tree planting in Claremont is long and storied. Before the city was named in 1887, the site now known as Memorial Park was first a section of the Mission San Gabriel. It later became part of Rancho San Jose and was owned by Ricardo Vejar and Ygnacio Palomares. Palomares’ sister, Maria de Alvarado, and her family lived in an adobe house in what is now the park. The area was then known as “El Alisal.” A natural spring was adjacent to the home. This allowed for the planting of trees, creating a lush retreat and oasis for travelers in the middle of an arid landscape of rocks and sagebrush. On the property, one could find weeping willows, sycamores and live oaks. The early settlers of the town were mostly from New England and the planting of trees was a nat-

ural step—it brought a touch of familiarity and a sense of comfort. During the first town meeting in 1889, citizens were invited to bring rosebushes, shrubs and trees to plant at Pomona College. In her book, Claremont: A Pictorial History, Judy Wright informs us: “It was only 6 days after the first town meeting that a 3-member committee on sidewalks and shade trees reported a gift of 250 trees with the suggestion that the residents meet and decide what trees should be planted on each street.” This was an important event for the city, because from this committee sprang the idea of lining selected streets with certain types of trees, many of which survive today. It was also emblematic of the early form of governance, the town meeting, another import from New England. Today, we still enjoy the town meeting approach—city government uses the town meeting to gather input on issues. From records, it is clear that the street tree committee was the most active, appearing in the archives of city minutes more often than any other committee. College Avenue was planted with eucalyptus, and they grew so well—reaching a height of 15 feet—that they were featured on the cover of the 1898 college yearbook. The trees were planted by Henry A. Palmer, the president of the board of trustees of Pomona College, and his young assistant, teacher-sur-

veyor, Frank Brackett. They planted the trees with wide spaces in between, not in rows as was the custom, to preserve the view of the mountains. They could be seen walking the avenue with a horse-drawn wagon, watering the trees. The New England influence appeared again when a species found commonly in the east, the American Elm, was selected for planting. The decision was made to locate the majority of these elms along Alexander Avenue, what is now Indian Hill Boulevard. Although many of these trees have been taken by disease and age, many of them currently remain standing. The most notable of the surviving trees form a high canopy on Indian Hill Boulevard between 8th and 10th Streets at Memorial Park. It is the quintessential image of our tree heritage. In 1944, the Postwar Planning Committee was created by the Chamber of Commerce to promote good city planning. One of the subcommittees was concerned with street trees. The guiding light of the street tree committee was Mary Ilsley. They raised over $3000 and struck a deal with the city that if they planted the trees and watered them the first year, then the city would take over the care and maintenance thereafter. The crepe myrtles on Berkeley Avenue were one of the first projects for the committee. The tradition of tree planting has carried over from generation to generation and is part of the culture of the community and the city. Our trees are as deeply rooted in our heritage as the rest of our history. So when you are walking the dog, or out for a leisurely stroll, and you find yourself gazing up at the elms on Indian Hill, or the crepe myrtles on Berkeley or admiring the height of the eucalyptus on College, give a nod to the Alvarado family, to Henry Palmer, to Frank Brackett, to Mary Ilsley, and, yes, to the trees.

CHS Theatre renovation kicks off with groundbreaking hoopla

In December 2008, the State Allocation Board awarded a $1.5 million matching Career and Technical Education (CTE) grant for modernization of the facility. CTE funding is designated for projects providing students with career and technical education. Along with an upgrade of the electrical wiring system, expansion plans include a 1600-square-foot lobby with a ticket window and handicap-accessible restrooms and 3,500 square feet of classroom space. That addition will create backstage space for set construction, a costume shop, storage for scenery and props, dressing rooms and student restrooms. In the years after the award of the grant, theatre department staff, students and boosters have not remained idle. Between vigorous fundraising and some generous gifts from community members, they rallied to raise $400,000. Despite their best efforts, the renovation project faced a gap of $1.1 million

as the grant’s June 30, 2012 deadline loomed. Had the matching funds not been provided by that time, the school would have had to forfeit the state funding. It came as a relief to project supporters when it was announced at the May 3 CUSD board meeting the district would provide a $1.5 million bridge loan, funded largely through the sale of the old district property on Base Line Road and Mountain Avenue. With funding in place, the Paul C. Miller Construction company, which comes with high recommendations for work on schools in nearby districts like Etiwanda, Fontana and Chino, is ready to get started on the Don F. Fruechte Theatre for the Performing Arts. Five hundred students, a quarter of the CHS student body, participate in the theatre department and its productions. The choral music department also uses the theater for its shows, so a large number of students will benefit from the expansion. Not yet, though. The theatre renovation project has a 240-day construction schedule, during which time staff and students will have to find other performance venues through next spring. The theatre department is renting the Candlelight Pavilion for one of its shows and will perform at Bridges Auditorium twice next year, once more than normal.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the Don Fruechte Center for Performing Arts is scheduled for Wednesday, June 6 at 5 p.m. Mr. Fruechte is seen here with CHS Theatre Director Krista Elhai at last yearʼs Curtain Raisers fundraiser.

Even with these efforts, students will be impacted next year by performing 5 less shows than most years. The staff and students of the CHS choral department are also feeling the pressure as they look for substitute performance venues. CHS Theatre Director Krista Carson Elhai says she feels badly about the curtailed season, especially for the seniors who will endure the displacement with-

out getting to enjoy the new theater at its completion. With this in mind, she is taking pains to plan enrichment activities that will leave students with fond memories and stronger portfolios at the end of the year. The students will participate in more festivals, and Ms. Elhai is planning a New York theater trip during next year’s spring break. In addition, students will have an opportunity to work with a theater luminary for a show to be performed at Bridges next February. Award-winning performer, director and choreographer DJ Gray will lend her expertise for a production to be named at the upcoming theatre department end-of-year banquet. Ms. Gray was associate choreographer for the Tony Award-winning Broadway production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and for the Tonynominated Xanadu. The CHS theatre department will have plenty to celebrate at their banquet. With a new theater, a famous collaborator and the success of their recent performance of All Shook Up, the present and future look bright for the department. Want to show your support at the theatre project’s groundbreaking celebration? The June 6 event will be held from 5 to 5:45 p.m. in front of the theatre at Claremont High School at 1601 N. Indian Hill Blvd.

Leo A. Crosby, Jr.
Pilot, veteran, citrus grower, dancer, family man
Longtime Claremont resident Leo Arthur “Bud” Crosby, Jr. died on May 24, 2012 at Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Ontario. He was 95. Born on April 24, 1917, Mr. Crosby grew up with his sister and brother, Margaret and Charles, in Harvard, Illinois and Pueblo, Colorado. In 1943 in Pueblo, he married Marion E. Dyer from Pomona. After graduating from Pueblo High School, Mr. Crosby attended business college and pursued his interest in flying. He became a pilot and owned 2 airplanes before joining the US Army Air Corps in 1942. In the Army Air Corps, he earned the rank of first lieutenant and served as a flight instructor at bases in Kansas and Texas during World War II. After the war, Mr. and Mrs. Crosby moved to Pomona where he went to work in the office of a citrus fruit-packing house in Walnut. Shortly thereafter, he bought a 15-acre orange grove in Claremont, which was known as the DCC John Crosby in 1955. In 1959, Mr. Crosby sold the grove to a contractor who built a housing tract on the property. The contractor also built a major addition and remodeled the home to change the back of the house to become the front, facing the new housing tract street of DePaul Road. Throughout his primary career, Mr. Crosby worked for Sunkist Growers at their offices in Upland, Claremont, Riverside and Ontario. During the early 1960s, he returned to school at Mt. San Antonio College and earned an associate of arts degree. In the late 1950s, Mr. Crosby and his wife started their dance career by joining the Foot 'n Fiddle Square Dance Club in La Verne. They square- and rounddanced for years, and Mr. Crosby gradually shifted toward round-dancing only. Eventually, he taught and cued the round dances, something he enjoyed immensely. He became well known in the

OBITUARIES
dancing community and began receiving requests to teach and cue at dance conventions across the western United States, Canada and Alaska. He wrote a number of dances over the years, with several achieving the high honor of “Round of the Month.” He finally retired from the almost full-time work of dancing at the age of 82. In 2011, the Crosbys moved to the Claremont Manor. Mr. Crosby is survived by his wife, Marion; his children, Connie, Robert and John; his grandchildren, David, Monica, Chris, Caitlyn and Natalie; and his greatgrandson, Brandyn. He was preceded in death by his brother, Charles; and his sister, Margaret. Funeral services will be held at 11:30 a.m. today, Saturday, June 2, 2012 at Todd Memorial Chapel, Claremont, followed by burial at Oak Park Cemetery in Claremont. Viewing took place yesterday at Todd Memorial Chapel.

Grove. Mr. Crosby helped in the construction of the house on the property that he and his wife would live in for the next 64 years. During these years, they had 3 children: daughter Connie Quesada in 1947, son Robert Crosby in 1950 and son

Craig F. Keenan
Native Claremonter, cherished son and brother, uncle to many
Former longtime Claremont resident Craig Francis Keenan died at age 57 on May 15, 2012. Born July 19, 1954, Mr. Keenan grew up in Claremont, attended Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic School and graduated from Damien High School in La Verne. He attended Arizona Automotive School and worked as a mechanic most of his life. “Our hearts are broken,” expressed his family, “but he is now in heaven with his father, Peter Keenan, who passed away in 2011, as well as his partner of 25 years, Alene Abraham. He will be with us always.” Mr. Keenan is survived by his mother, Rita Keenan; his brother, Tim Keenan; his sisters, Janet Cirone, Mary Peluffo, Kathy Keenan, Patty Patterson and Peggy Steevens; his brothers-in-law, Dominick Cirone, Steve Peluffo, Rick Patterson and Dave Steevens; his nephews, Michael Patterson, Brian Peluffo, Jake Steevens and Danny Steevens; his nieces, Kimberly Patterson, Dominique Cirone, Alyssa Peluffo and Maddie Steevens; and his great-nieces, Rylee Patterson and Brooklynn Patterson. A memorial mass will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 7, 2012 at Our Lady of the Assumption Church in Claremont. Burial will follow at Oak Park Cemetery in Claremont.

Barbara B. Davis
Community volunteer, devoted mother of 7, gardener, creative hobbyist
Barbara Buschmeyer Davis, affectionately known to many as "Babs" or "Barb," died on May 15, 2012 in Claremont. A Pilgrim Place resident, Ms. Davis was 83. Born on November 24, 1928 in Boston, Massachusetts to Frederick S. and Myrna (Ebert) Buschmeyer, she grew up in Durham, New Hampshire and Washington, DC. After graduating in 1946 from Central High School in DC, Ms. Davis attended Wellesley College where she earned her bachelor's degree in biblical history in 1950. On December 29, 1951, she married William Edward Funcke in Montclair, New Jersey. They lived in Iowa City, Iowa and Grand Rapids, Michigan before moving to Beaver Dam, Wisconsin in 1959. The mother of 7 children, Ms. Davis was a very active parent. She also participated in book clubs, belonged to various groups at Trinity Church United Methodist, served on the YMCA board of directors in Beaver Dam and, in the late 1970s, coached the YMCA swim team. In April 1973, she was elected to the Beaver Dam school board and eventually served as president. She enjoyed keeping a large vegetable garden and She and Mr. Davis moved to Attleboro, Massachusetts for several years before retiring to Pilgrim Place where Barbara's mother, Myrna Buschmeyer, resided until her death in 2000. Ms. Davis enjoyed Pilgrim Place’s lively community, especially her close friends and caring staff members. She enthusiastically learned the art of pottery there from her mentor, Hal. Besides her beloved family and friends, creative pursuits and community involvement, Ms. Davis relished being at her special summer place among the pines on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire, a place of respite that she visited almost every summer since the late-1940s. Ms. Davis is survived by her husband, Walter Davis of Claremont; her children, stepchildren and their spouses, William "Ward" and Christy Funcke of Lincoln, Nebraska, Peter Funcke of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, Eric Funcke and Ann Simmons of Evanston, Illinois, Craig Funcke of San Mateo, Jean Funcke and Sam Pocernich of Baraboo, Wisconsin, Neil and Joan Funcke of Manchester, New Hampshire, Martha Davis of Los Angeles and Tom and Kat Davis of Salina, Kansas; her 12 grandchildren and their

She was preceded in death by a son, Kent Andrew Funcke; her brother, Frederick “Bud” Buschmeyer, Jr.; and her sister, Myrna Marshall. A memorial celebration was held yesterday, June 1, 2012 at Decker Hall in Pilgrim Place. Wishing to repeat the sentiments of Gordon Sorensen, an important pastor in her life, in lieu of flowers or memorial gifts, Ms. Davis suggested paying visits to housebound persons or persons with special needs, sending thank you letters for intangible gifts perhaps received some years ago, mailing letters of justice and peace issues or forming new connections that will lead to a better world for future generations.

was known for providing free haircuts for her sons and their friends, her chili suppers, playing the piano and making artful fabric banners for church. In 1981, after a divorce, Ms. Davis moved to Winchester, Massachusetts. There, she married Walter Bond Davis, a minister at the First Congregational Church in Winchester, on September 10, 1982. She embraced 2 stepchildren, continued her church involvement and took up quilting and knitting.

Claremont Optometry relocates to Foothill Boulevard
The optometric practice of Dr. Ann Johannsen and Dr. Brad Baggarly recently moved from its Indian Hill location to 695 W. Foothill to better serve patients. The practice, Claremont Optometry, began in the Village on Yale Avenue in 1972 before relocating to the blue-gray, Cape Cod-style building on Indian Hill in 1985. The new Foothill Boulevard location is the former home of the Betsy Ross ice cream parlor and restaurant, a place that still holds fond memories for longtime Claremont residents. Later, it was the offices of Century 21 Prestige Properties. While keeping with their boutique tradition, style and service, the new office has plenty of parking and a showroom more than twice the size of the previous location. Claremont Optometry now offers one of the largest frame selections in the Inland Empire for those looking for the best in designer eyewear. “Patients that have come in are absolutely thrilled at what they see when they come through the door,” said Dr. Johannsen. “This was a big move for us and for me personally. My daughter is married and my son is in graduate school and they don’t remember their mom

OUR TOWN
working anywhere else. But we realized we needed to grow so we could offer more to our patients, a better environment for our employees and more options to those who didn’t want to drive to Newport Beach or West LA for the best selection in designer eyewear.” Claremont Optometry has expanded its staff, hiring 3 new, experienced opticians to assist patients. But while having a larger selection of eyeglass frames was an important goal for the move, adding space to accommodate new instruments and testing capabilities was also important. “We now utilize the Marco Total Refracting system with computer-controlled testing which uploads directly into the patient’s electronic medical record,” said Dr. Baggarly. “We are almost completely paperless. Patients can fill out information and history forms online, which also import directly. When someone comes to this office, they know they are getting the best optometric care available and service they’ve come to expect.”

The doctors also wanted to make a statement with the new building. As part of the construction, 85 percent of all materials removed from the building during demolition were recycled. The building interior was gutted down to the perimeter stud walls and rafters, and then totally rebuilt with the latest in sustainable products. They elected to use environmentally friendly features such as LED lighting throughout, and flooring made entirely of recycled materials. The new sign on Foothill is a larger and fresher version of the original, with its now famous gold eyeglasses on top. Claremont Optometry offers fashions by designers including Prada, Versace, IZOD, Gucci, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Kate Spade, Calvin Klein, Kaenon, Ray Ban, Oakley, Michael Kors, Juicy Couture, Fendi, Giorgio Armani, Maui Jim, Tag Hauer and more. Dr. Johannsen and Dr. Baggarly welcome new patients and all glasses and contact lens prescriptions to be filled by their in-house lab. A ribbon-cutting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 6 at 5:30 p.m. at 695. W. Foothill Blvd., with refreshments and door prizes. The public is invited.

District veteran keeps learning, earns ‘Teacher of the Year’

A

fter 29 years with the Claremont Unified School District, Chaparral Elementary School teacher Karen Corrette has been named Teacher of the Year. The only surprising thing about the honor, say her colleagues, is that it didn’t happen sooner.
“She’s someone who should have gotten this years and years ago,” said fellow Chaparral teacher Leanna Prokop. Ms. Corrette is considered a paragon of teaching, largely because of her refusal to rest on her laurels. Given her experience, she could almost teach her current crop of kindergarten and firstgrade students with her eyes closed. Instead, she approaches the job with eyes wide open, always seeking new ways to instruct and inspire. “Karen is constantly evolving. She’s never satisfied with just the regular thing she’s done,” Ms. Prokop said. Ms. Corrette received her teaching credentials from UC Irvine and a master’s degree from Azusa Pacific University, but her education has not stopped there. Her thirst for best teaching practices leads her to embrace innovative instruction methods and state-of-the-art technology, like the interactive white

COURIER photo/Amanda Rhoades Karen Corrette, whoʼs taught kindergarten through fourth grade for 29 years, won the CUSD Teacher of the Year Award for the first time. “Itʼs a big responsibility to represent elementary school teachers,” Ms. Corrette said. “There are so many of us that deserve to be recognized for the work that we do every day.”

board and associated software. When she’s not teaching, Ms. Corrette is poring through the internet for lesson plans and great ideas. “I have to tear myself away,” she admits. What spurs Ms. Corrette’s continual focus on professional development? Her motivation can be found on her attendance sheet. While the students listed are

at varying levels of proficiency, all are immersed in the technology that permeates our culture. “I think teaching today requires you to constantly engage kids at their own level,” Ms. Corrette said. “You have to be more engaging than just being in the classroom with books.” That’s not to say that Ms. Corrette has

anything against reading. A self-professed children’s lit junkie, she’s got books by the hundreds. During independent reading time, her students love to pick out a book and repair to a specially-constructed wooden two-story reading loft. Throughout the year, Ms. Corrette and her class transform the cozy structure to reflect the seasons. This winter, they decorated it like an igloo and, for Christmas, like a gingerbread house. For open house, the loft became a tree house and, for Halloween, it became a haunted house. From the loft to the colorful student projects that pepper nearly every inch of wall space, Ms. Corrette’s commitment to art education is evident. This focus is in keeping with the atmosphere at Chaparral, where art is emphasized as a way to enhance the “whole child” educational mission. For the students who—along with 2 pet turtles—call Room 2 home, the space is a refuge where they learn to love learning. The end of the school year is approaching and so is the wide-open expanse of summer. Like many kids, Cynthia Peters’ son Zachary is counting the days until the school year ends. Unlike many kids, though, the kindergartener isn’t looking forward to the end

Event will raise funds, rally enthusiasm for youth mentor program
The community is invited to a fundraising event for Phoenix Rising— an organization dedicated to raising high school and post-secondary graduation rates among Pomona Valley students— to be held this Sunday, June 3. Founded 3 years ago, Phoenix Rising is comprised of students, parents, teachers and community members dedicated to the success of local youths. Many participants in its mentoring and tutoring programs, which take place at the La Casita teen center in Pomona, hail from the Claremont Colleges. Along with academics, the organization focuses on gang prevention, drug and alcohol education and intervention, and non-denominational spiritual growth. Phoenix Rising founder Gustavo Ramirez, who was raised in Pomona and Claremont, knows firsthand the power of positive mentoring. After descending into drug abuse, he says he turned his life around “into sobriety and education,” ultimately earning his bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Berkeley and becoming a teacher at Pomona High School. At the end of the summer, he will begin pursuing a master’s degree at Harvard. The fundraiser, which Mr. Ramirez

says will be “dynamic,” includes food, poetry, music, raffles and a magic show. Dignitaries like Rancho Cucamonga Mayor L. Dennis Michael will be in attendance. A $5 donation is suggested for the event, which will be held at a residence located at 10132 Hampshire St., in Rancho Cucamonga. For information on the upcoming fundraiser, or on Phoenix Rising’s tutoring program, which will be offered twice weekly beginning in August, call Gustavo at 243-5148.

Gar Byrum to discuss the 2012 election at club meeting
Speaker Garland Byrum, JD, political scientist and author, will bring his perspective on the 2012 elections in his address to the Democratic Club of Claremont on Friday, June 8 at noon. Lunch begins at noon with the presentation from 1 to 2 p.m. The public is invited. The luncheon will be held at the LYL Gardens Restaurant (at the west end of the Sprouts shopping center), 921 W. Foothill Blvd. Cost for lunch is $10. For information, call Merrill Ring at 626-8467, email m36ring@earthlink.net or visit www.claremontdems.org.

TEACHER OF THE YEAR continued from the previous page

of his time with one of the district’s most charismatic teachers. “He really, really hopes he gets Ms. Corrette next year,” she said. Ms. Peters is crossing her fingers that Zachary gets his wish, because she loves the way Ms. Corrette fosters her son’s excitement about learning. “She is absolutely amazing,” Ms. Peters said. “She brings in learning in so many ways and the kids all love her. They want to do well for her.” It’s not just kids that have benefited from Ms. Corrette’s zest for education. She spent 4 years imparting teaching strategies to education students at the University of La Verne, and has mentored a number of student teachers. Burnout does not seem to be a word in Ms. Corrette’s vocabulary. After school ends this summer, she will spend 2 weeks at a school in Kenya, sharing instructional techniques with teachers there and working with a crew of volunteers to set up a computer lab. Her philanthropic plans came about because her husband, also an educator, is on the board of Providence Ministries, the nonprofit organization that supports the school. Traveling to Africa for the first time represents quite an adventure. Ms. Corrette is undaunted, though, partially because of her enthusiasm for education in all its forms but also because she is taking along a friend. Ms. Prokop, who is retiring at the end of this year after 30 years with CUSD, is coming along to help with the training. The 2 women became close friends when they both taught fourth grade for many years, and after having their children grow up together. Ms. Corrette is organizing Ms. Prokop’s retirement party. Though she’s only one year away from the same landmark, it’s likely that at least a few more groups of students will learn and thrive in this remarkable teacher’s classroom. “I still feel inspired to teach every year. I’m still excited to start a new year,” Ms. Corrette said. “I’m not quite ready to give that up.”

CLAREMONT HERITAGE continued from page 3

at the Historic City Depot since the inaugural event in 1996 up until last year, when Padua Hills Theatre was selected. Both sites were chosen because of Claremont Heritage’s role in saving and preserving the buildings. This year the venue will switch again, this time set along the backdrop of Pomona College. Pomona, the first of the 5Cs established in 1887, will be the recipient of the organization’s lauded Bess Garner Historic Preservation Award, recognizing the best of preservation by either an individual or an organization. The college was unaware it would be the recipient of the award at the time it agreed to host the event. Considering the exceptional contribution the college has made to maintaining historical integrity, their award is not surprising, according to Mr. Shearer. “We hold them as a shining example of what the other colleges should be looking at when thinking about expansions or master plans. Pomona College has been a steward in maintaining its original architecture,” Mr. Shearer said. “That is something that really does not get the attention or credit that is due.” Guests will be able to appreciate the reasons the college is being honored, as the courtyard is surrounded by some of this standout architecture. “We’re thrilled that Pomona’s sensitivity to our past and continuing efforts to maintain our campus’ architectural gems is being recognized,” said Pomona College’s Karen Sisson, vice president and treasurer. “Pomona College has a rich and distinguished architectural history that we are very proud of, and we are dedicated to preserving the architectural integrity and heritage of its buildings and landscaping.” In addition to the preservation award, Claremont Heritage implemented the Cultural Heritage award 3 years ago to honor those embodying what sets Claremont apart beyond the architecture. This year’s recipient is the longstanding Folk Music Center, which draws in crowds from across the country, and the globe, to sample the local music scene. The music center’s offerings and cultural scope is vast, from a potpourri of musical instruments and a highly-regarded concert series to workshops and educational classes. “It brought a truly American art form to Claremont, and an outlet of teachers like Ben Harper who have gone on to make a major impact in the music scene internationally,” Mr. Shearer said. “People come from all over to visit it and not only to buy or restore instruments, but take classes. It has really become an institution.” The store’s mission to spread an appreciation of music hits home for store manager Ellen Chase Harper, whose parents Charles and Dorothy Chase were the original owners, opening the store in the back of a real estate office in 1958.

COURIER photos/Steven Felschundneff Jerry OʼSullivan helps Paul Phillips select a harmonica on Thursday at the Folk Music Center in the Claremont Village. Mr. Phillips, who is visiting from Illinois, has been thinking about learning how to play for some time. AT LEFT: Folk Music Centerʼs manager Ellen Chase Harperʼs parents, Charles and Dorothy Chase, opened the store in 1958.

“I

t’s certainly meant everything to us, from family to friends,” Ms. Chase Harper said, reflecting on fond memories of her mother teaching music classes in Memorial Park to students who have gone on to teach her style of music across the globe. “It’s had such a big influence.”
Furthering its desire to teach music to students ranging in ages and levels, the Folk Music Center opened its own museum in 1976 as an educational and cultural tool that continues today. In economic times that are challenging for many, being honored for what they continue to provide to the music scene is particularly gratifying for Ms. Chase Harper. “I think validation is important, for every person and every institution,” she said. While recognizing these organizations that further the Claremont Heritage ideal, Heritage strives to raise

the funds necessary to continue to update its archives, and, a step further, bring those archived works of art into the homes of people across the globe. Heritage is working on creating a digital archive library of all its art pieces, photographs and more, which will be available on the group’s website and linked with other museum archives through a national database. Mr. Shearer hopes to further preservation efforts such as this through grant funding and gala proceeds. Beyond looking for the necessary funds to continue its operations, Mr. Shearer looks forward to bringing together a group of people dedicated to Claremont’s history both now and for years to come. “It is just a nice evening of music and dining with other Claremonters concerned about preserving our city,” Mr. Shearer said. “It is a wonderful time for a good cause.” The Pomona College Smith Fountain Courtyard is located at 150 S. College Ave. Tickets to the gala can be purchased on the Heritage website at www.claremontheritage.org.

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. On June 22, 2012, at 9:00am, Cal-Western Reconveyance Corporation, as duly appointed trustee under and pursuant to Deed of Trust recorded February 05, 2010, as Inst. No. 20100167271 in book XX, page XX of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of Los Angeles County, State of California, executed by Sunja Park, A Married Woman As Her Sole and Separate Property, will sell at public auction to highest bidder for cash, cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank Behind the fountain located in civic center plaza, 400 civic Center Plaza Pomona, California, all right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and State described as: Lot 151 of tract no. 28579, in the city of diamond bar, in the county of Los Angeles, state of California, as per map recorded in book 862, page(s) 40 through 46 of maps, in the office of the county recorder of said county. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1770 Autumnglow Drive Diamond Bar CA 91765 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be held, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, condition or encumbrances, including fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to pay the remaining principal sums of the note(s) secured by said 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: $381,363.49. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder's sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (619)590-1221 or visit the internet website www.rppsales.com, using the file number assigned to this case 1317242-10. 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. For sales information:(619)590-1221. Cal-Western Reconveyance Corporation, 525 East Main Street, P.O. Box 22004, El Cajon, CA 92022-9004 Dated: May 23, 2012. (R-411096 06/02/12, 06/09/12, 06/16/12)
