Dear Editor: On behalf of the residents of Claremont’s historic Arbol Verde neighborhhod, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all my fellow Claremonters for their support of Saturday’s June 16 El Barrio Park event. Attended by several hundred persons from throughout Claremont and surrounding Inland Valley cities, the “Sitting in the Park” public event was a remarkable success and everybody who attended left with a feeling of peace, harmony and happiness. The event would not have been a success without the unselfish and hard work of the following peple and institutions: Bill Pallotto, Amber Guzman and Mellissa Vollaro of the Claremont Human Services Department; Claremont City Councilmembers, especially Mayor Larry Schroeder and Sam Pedroza; Claremont City Manager Tony Ramos and Assistant City Manager Colin Tudor; Claremont McKenna College, most notably Brian Worley; Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church clergy Father Charles Ramirez and Deacon Bob Steighner; my
fellow Knights of Columbus brothers from OLA; and my indigenous and beautiful Mexica sisters Celia Gonzales and Elena Cardenas, who put together such a sacred, “preciosa” and magical spiritual procession through the Arbol Verde neighborhood that it will forever remain indelible in the hearts, minds and souls of the persons who prayed in it. A special thanks also goes out to my fellow Arbol Verde Preservation Committee member Lydia Falatico, and my mother Nellie Villanueva, who kept me sane by praying for me during the last month, especially during the controversy over the open-air Mass. But most importantly, I would like to extend Arbol Verde’s warmest “thank yous” to all my fellow Claremonters who attended the event, and especially those who came forward in Christian charity as private donors to put forth the money that enabled us to sponsor one of Claremont's most memorable events in recent history. In Christ’s peace and for all my relations,
Al Villanueva Chairperson, Arbol Verde Preservation Committee

Retail development in Village West raises concern
proposed 50-foot mixed-use building with retail and residential space may be the final piece to complete Claremont’s Village West.
The proposed property, vying to take over where the vacant Rich Products Corporation building currently resides, was given unanimous approval from the Claremont Planning Commission Tuesday night. The vote gave the project developed by Denley PLANNING Investment and Management Company the supermajority needed to pass COMMISSION on a favorable recommendation to the Claremont City Council. The council will cast the final vote, expected later this summer. If the development moves forward, it will fill in the final vacant parcel in Village West with a 4-story structure and internal parking garage as well as an adjacent 30-foot structure. Tentatively titled “The Village Lofts,” the project is geared at fitting the “urban environment” Village West’s expansion plan originally called for, which ultimately why the commission voted in favor. “This is an attempt to make a viable city reemerge in a time when densities are increasing,” said Commissioner Martin McLeod. “We are trying to manage those densities intelligently, and the flexibility that this project is proposing is wonderful.” The 1.66-acre parcel will include retail and live/work spaces on the first 2 floors, with residential apartments and a rooftop pool on the top 2 floors. A restaurant is proposed for the first floor of the building at the corner of Oberlin Avenue and First Street. A parking garage with 140 spaces will also be included, though 61 of those will be reserved for residents of the building. The adjacent 30-foot structure will include 5 two-story live/work spaces, similar to those found in The Packing House. The commission’s recommendation comes nearly a year after the project came up for public discussion. The planning commission first reviewed the project at a meeting in July 2011. The traffic and transportation commission reviewed the traffic and parking situation at a subsequent meeting in April. In addition to its approval of the overall concept of the Village Lofts development, the commission granted permission to change the maximum height of buildings typically allowed in the city’s commercial mixed-use zones. The new development will be allowed to exceed the usual 3-story or 40-foot maximum. The building was originally approved by the commission at 45 feet, but in order to accommodate the last level of the vertical, mixed-use design, an additional 5 feet were needed, according to Chris Veirs, senior planner for the city of Claremont. “It’s very expensive to build that kind of construction if you couldn’t pencil it without that extra level,” Mr. Veirs added. The city saw the change as a viable solution partially
Rendering courtesy of Denley Investment and Management Company The proposed live-work lofts to be built at the former Rich Products site will feature residential apartments, retail space and a rooftop pool. The height estimate is currently 50 feet, causing residents of the neighboring Village Walk condominiums to question the structureʼs impact on the area.
because the vacant parcel is the last available in this particular zone, which includes The Packing House, according to Mr. Veirs. The height of the building was already alarming to some residents at 45 feet, let alone the new addition, which represents a nearly 20 percent increase from the typical allowance. “It’s not entirely fair to ruin one person’s mountain view just to give another a mountain view,” Jason Ryan, a resident of the Village Walk townhomes, told the commission in July. Those present on Tuesday also remained concerned about their residences being overshadowed by the large design: “I’m concerned about the sunlight,” said Anna Cook, who grows tomatoes on her Village Walk patio and said she rarely gets enough sunlight as it is. Though Gwen Carr recognized the mountain views are not protected, her main concern was over-saturating Village West with retail space. “I can almost count the vacant shops that we have,” Ms. Carr said. “It bothers me, worries me, that we will maybe have more vacant shops.” Fellow Village Walk resident Karen Hall agreed, hoping city planners would consider a bowling alley or miniature golf course to appeal to Claremont’s youth instead of adding more retail shops.
“We need something for these kids to do. Instead of empty businesses, let’s talk about the recreational and leisure skills of Claremont,” she suggested. Despite multiple suggestions for recreational space, Commissioner Brenda Barham Hill said that the use of space for recreational purposes, though desired by members present, was unfortunately not an option. “I would love to see a park there, would love to see a soccer field there...but the fact of that matter is that this planning commission has to respond to proposals that are presented to it by developers,” Ms. Barham Hill said. “Using that property for some sort of open space, recreational space, is not an option that is being presented to us at this time. It’s a great idea, but it’s moot in the context of this proposal.” The live/work concept of the project will allow heightened flexibility for the developer and tenants should market challenges arise, added Commissioner K.M. Williamson. “I think that’s a very smart way to go for this project,” she said. Her fellow commissioners agreed. “Giving them [developers and tenants] the opportunity to make it retail or live/work is really important,” Mr. McLeod said. “This is an attempt to go back gracefully to more flexibility for the businesses.”

Trash talk leads agenda at Tuesday’s city council meeting
laremont residents may soon see a hike in sanitation fees. The Claremont City Council Tuesday night will discuss raising the fees because of a 2 percent spike in the Consumer Price Index (CPI). In October 2008, the council approved raising sanitation fees in accordance with CPI on July 1 every year, if approved by the community and human services commission as well as the council. This year is no exception. The commission found that the revenue generated by the CPI is necessary to provide the funding for ongoing operation and maintenance, labor and in-
surance, equipment and capital, facilities and debt. The public is invited to comment on the subject CITY prior to a council vote at COUNCIL this Tuesday’s city council meeting, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at the City Council Chamber, 225 W. Second St. Following the sanitation hearing, the council will also take a vote on adopting the city’s 2012-2014 budget. The council and the public reviewed the proposed budget at the last city council meeting with little negative feedback. Total expenditures assumed for 20122013 are estimated at about $40.3 million.
A bulk of that amount, about 85 percent, makes up operating costs with a small portion allotted for debt service and capital improvement. 2013-2014 expenditure assumptions are about $39.5 million, with ratios remaining essentially the same as the previous year. Though the budget shows a $1.2 million deficit in 2012-2013, the city expects to end with a surplus of about $463,000 in fiscal year 2013-2014. Alternative pedestrian pathways to the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park and the city’s policy on co-sponsoring community events are also up for discussion. Prior to their regular meeting, council members will meet in closed session
Tuesday, June 26 at 4 p.m. to discuss details of a potential water acquisition, according to City Manager Tony Ramos. A report will be brought back to the public at the regular city council meeting at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to comment on the agenda item at 4 p.m. sharp before the council recesses into closed session. View the full agenda for both the closed and regular sessions of the Claremont City Council at www.ci.claremont.ca.us.

Singleton arraignment delayed, still held without bail for probation
From the city managerʼs office
Biodeiesel fuel pump to be added at Arco The city’s Community Development Department has received an application from Propel Fuels Inc. to add a new biodiesel fuel pump at the ARCO AM/PM service station (701 E. Foothill Blvd.). This will be the first outlet for biodiesel fuel in Claremont. Propel proposes to sell Ethanol (FlexFuel E85) and Biodiesel (B5) in addition to the existing ARCO AM/PM operations, which will remain. The design for Propel’s new fuel canopy and associated signs will be reviewed by the architectural commission on July 27. Residential parking restriction reminder Residents may not be aware, but parking a vehicle on any unpaved surface or landscaped area, such as a front yard or unimproved area, is prohibited. Residents who have an overflow of parking due to visitors or a special occasion can legally park on city streets and apply for overnight parking permits from the police department, if needed. For more information, contact the Community Improvement office at 399-5467, or you can view Claremont Municipal Code Section 16.154.070.D online at www.ci.claremont.ca.us under the “City Government/Municipal Code” link. Wilderness Park parking lot project This project is currently out to bid, with a bid opening date of Tuesday, June 26. This project will accommodate approximately 137 parking spaces encompassing nearly 1.7 acres at the north end of Mills Avenue using Pomona Valley Protective Agency (PVPA) property. Access to the park will be made available during construction, except for limited periods for grading and paving. Notifica-
he arraignment of Tyler Singleton, a former Claremont High School football star arrested for alleged date rape, has been postponed until July 17, according the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office. It was originally scheduled to take place at Pomona Valley Superior Court last Wednesday, June 20.
Mr. Singleton was arrested in late April on 2 counts of suspected date rape relating to an occurrence reported in September 2011. An 18-year-old female came forward accusing Mr. Singleton of sexually assaulting her. Preliminary investigation including evidentiary items and a sexual assault kit revealed the presence of Mr. Singleton’s DNA, according to Claremont Police Detective James Hughes. Mr. Singleton is currently on probation for a previous statutory rape offense that had him sentenced to 180 days in jail in 2010. He pleaded no contest to the 2010 charges. The Pomona resident first made news in Claremont as the former starting running back for the CHS football team. Transferring to CHS midway through his freshman year, Mr. Singleton became the leading rusher in the Baseline League during the 2008-09 season and was twice named to the AllBaseline League. Mr. Singleton is being held without bail because he is already on probation, according to Det. Hughes.

tions will be made in advance for any closures. Construction is estimated to start early August. This project is partially funded by a Los Angeles County Regional Parks and Open Space District Grant. The primary construction for this project will be completed in October and also calls for the installation of parking meters. The grant calls for utilizing the California Conservation Corps (CCC) for the installation of the landscaping, which will occur later this fall. The CCC is a state agency that puts together young people and the environment, to the benefit of both. Corps members—young men and women between the ages of 18 and 25—sign up for a year of working outdoors to improve California’s natural resources. Indian Hill storm drain improvement/Indian Hill and Auto Center Drive widening project This project will add approximately 0.5 miles of new storm drain to stop flooding during heavy storms and accommodate drainage on Indian Hill Boulevard from Vista Drive to American Avenue. This project is funded mostly with a Highway Safety Improvement Program Grant (HSIP) and will start in early August. Pedestrian and vehicular access will be accommodated during construction. Street and/or lane closures will be done on an as-needed basis. Night work will also be done on this project to accommodate drivers’ commutes from San Jose Avenue to American Avenue. The city of Pomona is also planning to extend the storm drain from American Avenue to San Bernardino Avenue as a separate project.
Wednesday, June 13 The occupant of a vehicle near Indian Hill Boulevard and San Jose Avenue was startled when a man with a bloody lip began pounding on his car door and threatening to beat him up. Police located the bloodied man—George Rivera, 19, of Ontario—at the Rancho San Jose Park basketball court and determined he was under the influence of alcohol. He initially gave police a false name and it wasn’t until he was at the jail that they determined his actual identity. Mr. Rivera was arrested for public intoxication and giving false information to an officer. Saturday, June 16 Police arrested a 34-year-old male is accused of threatening and assaulting a homeless man. Anthony Gomez allegedly told the man that he was going to kill and eat him, according to Claremont Police Detective David DeMetz. The altercation took place Friday night, June 15, at College Park, 100 S. College Ave. In addition to criminal threats, Mr. Gomez is accused of physically assaulting the man, causing minor injuries. Reportedly, Mr. Gomez had gotten into a previous altercation with the same person at Claremont City Hall last September. Mr. Gomez was arrested for criminal threats. **** A set of vehicle break-ins was made simple for a burglar in the 3800 block of Williams Avenue between Friday, June 15 at 11:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 16 at 10 a.m. Each of the 3 cars found broken into had been left unlocked. The burglar, who remains unknown, stole an estimated $350 of property from one vehicle, including an iPod and navigation system. About $3 in change was stolen from another vehicle with nothing reported missing from the third. The cars were parked in separate residential driveways. Sunday, June 17 A vandal used a BB gun to damage to 3 cars parked in the 800 block of W. Bonita Avenue Saturday night. The vehicles were discovered Sunday morning, each with damage to the rear passenger side, according to Det. DeMetz. One also had a shattered window. There are no witnesses or any substantial evidence at this time. **** Sumner School, at 1770 Sumner Ave., was subject to a break-in sometime last weekend, according to Claremont police. The unknown person or persons had attempted to enter all of the rooms located in the school’s 500 quad by sliding open windows, according to Det. DeMetz. Access was gained to only one classroom, and nothing was reported as missing or damaged. Tuesday, June 19 An afternoon fraud scheme left a Vil-
Housekeeperʼs quick thinking leads to arrest
On Saturday, June 16 a routine room check for a housekeeper at the Claremont Lodge turned into what could have been a fatal attack. The housekeeper found Charlie Clark, 47, of Moreno Valley, washing his hands in what was supposed to have been an unoccupied room at the Lodge at around 5 p.m. on Saturday. Mr. Clark looked at the housekeeper, putting his finger to his lips to gesture her to be quiet, according to Det. DeMetz. However, the housekeeper left the room and reported Mr. Clark’s breakin to her manager. Later, Mr. Clark allegedly approached that same housekeeper, took 2 knives found on her lage West business down more than a thousand dollars. An anonymous woman, claiming to be an employee of California Edison, called Bua Thai Cuisine, 450 W. First St., to inform management that they were behind on their electricity bill payments. The woman, who claimed she was also an officer with the Los Angeles Police Department, requested the owner go to the local CVS store, purchase 3 pre-paid money cards and give her the numbers over the phone. The amount totaled approximately $1450. If the owner failed to do so, the woman claimed the restaurant’s electricity would be shut off within 20 minutes. The owner did as instructed. It wasn’t until later after reviewing the company's bank account and seeing that the payments were up-to-date that the owner realized the scam. A report was filed cart and came at her moving his hands in a downward motion to attack. The housekeeper was able to move backward and ran to her manager’s office to call the police. Though he attempted to flee, police were able to locate Mr. Clark and positively identify him as the attacker. He was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and for being under the influence of a controlled substance. Mr. Clark had been staying at another room of the Claremont Lodge with Rosemary Johnson, 57, of Perris, who was also arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance.

The woman, driving an older model white Nissan 4-door, struck a 15year-old pedestrian near the intersection of Bonita and Cambridge Avenues. The teenager landed on the hood of the car and rolled off, but the woman continued to travel east on Bonita without stopping. The police and fire departments responded, treating the teenager for minor injuries. The woman is described as being in her late 90s, according to Det. DeMetz.

Shifts in key positions highlight board meeting
t was hello and goodbye at the latest meeting of the Claremont Unified School District Board of Education, held Thursday, June 21 at the Richard S. Kirkendall Education Center.
The school board and the community bid farewell to Interim CUSD Superintendent Gloria Johnston who stepped in after the previous superintendent, Terry Nichols, traded Claremont for the Duarte school district after less than 2 years in office. “We were so fortunate to find you at this critical time in our history, at a time when morale wasn’t as high as it could or should be,” said board member Sam Mowbray, who said that Ms. Johnston had managed to “wow” the community. Ms. Johnston, who maintained residency in Claremont during the course of her supervisory role here, will return to her home in San Diego. Her grandchildren, she notes, will be happy to have their grandmother to play with again. Board member Hilary LaConte shed a few tears as she thanked Ms. Johnston for making her “a better school board member,” sentiments echoed by the board vice president and the board president, Mary Caenepeel and Jeff Stark. Despite the brevity of her time in Claremont, 16 months, Ms. Johnston seems to have forged some lasting connections. Former CUSD school board president Beth Bingham attested to her admiration for Ms. Johnston, a fellow midwesterner who was the first to ring her doorbell and give her a hug after the death of her husband. She said that Ms. Johnston has been “a champion of all our students.” “Interim positions are not easy,” Ms. Bingham said, noting that the role always comes with “tough decisions.” “A strong leader will probably ruffle some feathers,” she continued. “But as you all know, if a bird’s feathers aren’t ruffled, they will never fly.” Ms. Johnston received a standing ovation from those in attendance. ***** Greetings were in order for Kristin Robinson after the board approved her as the new principal of Sumner Elementary School. Ms. Robinson comes to Claremont from the Chino Unified School District, where she served as principal for Oakridge and Hidden Trails Elementary School, among other posts. Before moving onto school administration, she was a classroom teacher for the Covina Valley and Snowline school districts.
A district news release notes Ms. Robinson was selected to replace former Sumner Principal Frank D’Emilio—who will be returning to a CUSD classroom as a teacher this fall—by the unanimous agreement of 2 interview panels composed of district administrators, teachers, classified staff and parents. “Her recommendation is due to her exceptional leadership in building strong relationships with students, community,” notes CUSD families, staff andrelease. “Through a CUSD press BOARD these relationships, she is able to impact every student by addressing their social, emotional, physical and intellectual needs.” Kevin Ward, assistant superintendent of human resources for the Claremont Unified School District, said that all who have worked with Ms. Robinson, who begins her tenure on July 1, have high praise for the administrator. “She had some of the highest recommendation I’ve seen in my career,” Mr. Ward said. Ms. Robinson noted that one of her children is already attending a school in the CUSD, and her second will be doing the same this coming year. She looks forward to strengthening her ties with the Claremont community. “I’ve left behind a great district, with sadness, but I’m very excited to join the team,” Ms. Robinson said. There was one more goodbye as faculty union president Joe Tonan announced he would be stepping down from his role. Mr. Tonan, a teacher at Sumner Elementary School, hands the reigns over to Claremont Faculty Association Bargaining Chair David Chamberlain. Mr. Chamberlain is an English teacher and speech and debate coach at Claremont High School. Mr. Tonan thanked Ms. Shoemaker, Mr. Ward, Bonnie Bell, assistant superintendent of educational services, and Mike Bateman, assistant administrator of student services, for the way they have worked with the CFA over the past few years. At Thursday’s meeting, the board approved an agreement between the faculty union and the district, which union members had earlier passed by a 99 percent vote. Changes to the previous agreement included the institution of a new system in which to evaluate the performances of school nurses, counselors and psychologists. Previously, they were evaluated with the same criteria used for teachers. A more uniform evaluation process for teachers has also been instituted. At each CUSD school, criteria will be selected via a joint effort by the site administrator, the teacher being evaluated and the teacher’s peers. The former category might represent a consensus of the entire faculty at the school or among colleagues who teach
the same grade or subject matter. “We have accomplished much this year,” Mr. Tonan said. He shared that, by sacrificing his time to serve fellow faculty member, he had gained insight into the job undertaken by the school board. “This experience has maybe given me some insight into the sacrifices that each one of you board members make—time taken away from your family and jobs, your passions and interests, in order for you to give your time and talents to the staff and especially to the students of Claremont.” Budgeting amid uncertainly The rest of the meeting was dominated by budget concerns as Lisa Shoemaker, assistant superintendent of business services, delivered a report on the CUSD budget for 2012-2013. It represents her 16th such report, she noted. The budget features 2 main themes: conservatism and contingencies. The Claremont district is currently solvent, which “is an enviable position,” said Mr. Stark. The board agreed the district’s financial health is due to frugality and the collective decision to “hunker down” until the economic climate improves. With this in mind, the new budget aims to preserve programs rather than expanding them. The current budget allows for $5,207 per student. Although that figure should be about $1,500 higher, Ms. Shoemaker said the district should be able to continue to serve students and employ personnel at current levels through 2015. Governor Jerry Brown has proposed a tax initiative, which has qualified for the November ballot, that would increase the sales tax by a quarter-cent on the dollar and raise taxes among individuals who earn $250,000 and above or joint filers who earn at least $500,000. Should the measure pass, it will generate an estimated $8.5 billion in the current budget cycle. That amount would allow for additional education funding to help bridge the beleaguered state’s $15.7 million deficit. If it does not pass, Ms. Shoemaker said CUSD will face “a little trouble,” and can expect cuts of $3 million per year. Ms. Shoemaker said the next election’s high stakes with regards to education make it crucial that local voters head to the polls come November. The COURIER will explore the latest CUSD budget in greater details in a future edition of the newspaper.

Tidbits...short commentaries on travel
by Jan Wheatcroft
shall share some short ideas about traveling and spending those free hours that fall into my lap when I should be working. The first is about choosing which airline to use for travel. For me, flying used to be a rather luxurious experience, whether I was traveling within the US or going abroad. Nowadays, I find traveling on American domestic airlines quite trial-filled with all of the things that are no longer offered and all the boring limitations.
When I fly to a foreign country, I want the flight to count as part of the journey as well as the trip itself and so I choose a foreign carrier. At this moment, my favorite carrier is Air New Zealand as I find the comfort level and service to be top notch. I also have enjoyed Singapore, Virgin, Japan and British Airways. Mostly, I try to combine good service with a good price but it is not always possible to get both together. Since my trip begins with the flight, the airline I choose is important to me. There are some things I try to have with me whenever I travel. My passport, of course, even needed for trips to Canada and Mexico now. I always have some extra passport-type photos with me. They come in handy for things like a weekly Metro pass in Paris and a visa application in case I change my itinerary. One never knows what might develop. Comfortable shoes, medicines, a scarf and cheerful jewelry, a few good books (I still like real books), which I can leave for others when I have read them, my camera and now my iPad; all are important. I do not take a phone when I travel abroad. If one is necessary, I’d buy a cheap one wherever I am. I like a small notebook to keep all my information in one place. I write down what I spend, where I go, addresses, things I like, recipes, phone numbers...it’s all there in one place. I used to travel with huge wads of cash and travelers checks until I came up with a system which now works well for me. No more travelers checks. I don’t know if they are even sold anymore. I carry some cash espe-
cially if I know that Bureau de Change outlets are easily found. For instance, they are all over London with various exchange rates but hard to find in Sweden, especially outside of Stockholm. Many banks do not change money. In Cambodia, the dollar was the currency used. Dollars were accepted in Vietnam and in Laos. So I carry dollars, but I leave money in my checking account that I can withdraw at ATM machines. I make notes in my notebook regarding how much I leave in and how much I take out so, that I won’t go over my limit. I also send extra money to my charge card and then feel comfortable using it for special purchases or treats and I keep careful record of whatever I charge as well. Claremont is a very pretty town and I walk many mornings a week with my friend, Helen. Helen and I often begin from my house and walk over to Bridges and look for hawks and their nests. I love the trees there. Then we might meander into the Colleges and see what changes are being made. There is always a new building going up with underground parking attached, old familiar buildings being torn down, new dorms being built or nice landscaping that changes with the seasons. The summer is a great time to see what is happening as the Colleges get ready for the returning students, as well as hosting many visiting groups of guests. We leave earlier in the warm months to beat the heat. We have wandered into the old “barrio” area just south of First Street and enjoyed all the older, small cottages and the lovely gardens. West of Indian Hill. we enjoy the alleyways as much as the streets. It is fun to discover just how many small cottages and rentals exist that are hidden from the street view. These walks are good for a bit of a stretch as well as for chatting and planning projects and just to enjoy the town before the day gets busy.
I have an orange bike that I am proud of—or at least I am proud of having mastered the art of riding it. I have never had a great sense of balance and it took me years to learn to ride a bike and to stay on one. As a child my mother took me to a Beverly Hills bike shop, Hans Ort Bike Shop, to have the man there teach me how to ride. After several lessons on the horse path, I was pronounced a failure. My sons, who seemed to just hop on a bike and ride off, found this story very funny, however, it always made me sad. I was 65 before I was able to stay on the seat and actually get somewhere. I still wobble but I am back on the bike, riding in the early morning while it is still cool, up and down the streets near my house and around and around the empty parking lots of the Colleges. I ride for exercise and to learn to feel safe and in control. I watch people zip about on their bikes as if they are without a care in the world. Claremont is a lovely place to ride a bike and it is one of the things I wish I felt more comfortable doing and something I will keep working on to try to conquer my fears and develop my strength. Summer is a time for vacations, travel, visitors, relaxation and life lived as usual. It is my least favorite time to travel as everyone else is doing it too, it is hotter and the prices are higher. But often we have to go when it works best with other peoples’ schedules, the weather, time off and children. I usually like to get my art work attended to during the summer. For those who stay at home, there are many summer pleasures like various park concerts and a peaceful quiet atmosphere. Perhaps those moments include reaping the rewards of spring gardening or enjoying al fresco coffees at the local cafes while imagining oneself in an exotic location for a moment. Maybe it is the time to explore one’s home turf, the local mountains, bike trails or close by beaches. Summer also offers the chance to take classes or short courses or indulge in a sport or share the time with a close friend or family member. Whatever I choose to do, I make it something special and pleasurable and, above all, relaxing. I also believe in doing everything I can to stay cool and not let the heat get to me: fans, air conditioning, cool drinks, cold showers and cold bodies of water. Let’s drink a toast to this summer with something cool, fruity and refreshing.

Haugh theater says hello yellow brick road, catches up with Peanuts gang
A duo of theatrical performances are coming up at Citrus Community College. The first of these is a family-friendly production of The Wiz, a soulful adaptation of Frank L. Baum’s Wizard of Oz. Featuring music by Charlie Smalls and a story by William F. Brown, the musical follows Dorothy as she is blown by a tornado into Munchkinland, where she meets the Tinman, the Cowardly Lion and her beloved Scarecrow. They all go off to see the Wizard of Oz, who turns out to be a phony, but she starts believing, and they all live happily ever after. The Wiz is produced by the Citrus
Summer Conservatory, a 5-week program offered to high school and college students interested in musical theater performance training and performance opportunities. Performances will be held Friday, July 27 at 8 p.m. and Saturday, July 28 at 2 p.m. A show aimed at slightly more mature audiences, Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead, will be performed in the Citrus Little Theatre on Sunday, August 5 at 2 p.m. Dog Sees God is an unauthorized revisiting of the popular Peanuts comic strip that imagines them as dysfunctional teenagers. It is a dark comedy with some adult language and themes. The Citrus Theatre production was chosen as one of the featured perform-
ances at the American College Theatre Regional festival in Ogden, Utah in February of this year. The standing-roomonly performances received high praise. Performances of Dog Sees God will be held adjacent to the Citrus Little Theatre, which is being remodeled this summer. A number of performances are planned: Friday, July 17, Saturday, July 28 and Friday, August 3 and Saturday, August 4 at 8 p.m. There will also be a matinee held on Sunday, August 5 at 2 p.m. Tickets for both shows will be available online beginning Sunday, July 1. They can be purchased at the Haugh Performing Arts Box Office at Citrus College (1000 W. Foothill Blvd.) beginning Tuesday, July 3. Tickets cost $12 for general admission, $10 for students and seniors.

CMC, Pomona College earn architectural awards
he 42nd annual Los Angeles Architectural Awards, hosted by the Los Angeles Business Council, recognized both Claremont McKenna and Pomona College for “the very best architecture in Los Angeles and Los Angeles County.”
Selected by a jury of 20 notable design and building professionals, the winning projects encompass a wide range of building types, from museums to affordable apartment complexes to single-fam-
ily homes. The call for entries went out in January 2012 to thousands of industry leaders, of which the jury selected 32 winning projects. In the private education category, the 169,000 square-foot Kravis Center at Claremont McKenna College, also known as the “glass living room,” was deliberately designed without a central public space or lobby, but shares an outdoor, all-glass space with the rest of the west campus. A critical design component was the facility’s transparency, according to judges, both as a way to use southern California’s natural daylight to greatest advantage and to visually integrate indoor and outdoor activities. The
Sontag Hall and Pomona Hall at Pomona College were recently recognized by the Los Angeles Business Councilʼs LA Architectural Awards.

building also earned a LEED Silver rating. Rafael Vinoly Architects and contractor Bernards were recognized by the LA Business Council for their efforts. Sontag Hall and Pomona Hall, both student housing facilities at Pomona College, house 150 students in a variety of dorms: single room, double room and suite-style living. Project judges noted that the college’s progressive sustainable agenda catalyzed the complex’s new ar-
chitecture, resulting in a LEED Platinum-certified facility. The project is the first student residence in California to receive such a rating. Throughout the design, special attention was paid to the indoor environmental quality of the building as well as the well-being of its users. Ehrlich Architects and contractor Hathaway Dinwiddie Construction Co. earned the distinction.

Public invited to review Dial-a-Ride service plan
The public is invited to take part in a review of the Claremont Dial-a-Ride cab service this Thursday, June 28, at 6 p.m. at the Alexander Hughes Center, 1700 Danbury Road. This is the first in a series of community workshops gathering stakeholder input on the local nonprofit organization. The past several years have reflected an increase in Dial-a-Ride’s ridership and cost of service. With the way the program is growing, the city’s designated funds will only be able to maintain the program for the next 2.5 years. To address these concerns, the Claremont City Council suggested the community and human services commission analyze potential changes to the service to bring the program in line with available funding. Those unable to attend Thursday’s meeting may also take part in review sessions to be held Thursday, July 19 at 7 p.m. at the City Council Chamber (225 W. Second St.), and Monday, July 23 at 9 a.m. at the Joslyn Center
(660 N. Mountain Ave.) Comments may also be submitted to Cari Sneed, management analyst, at 399-5306 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail to the Dial-ARide Ad Hoc Committee, 1616 Monte Vista Ave.
Wilderness Park bear sightings
Claremont city officials are alerting residents of recent bear sightings at the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park. Officials say the bears are not aggressive, but urge hikers and cyclists to avoid any contact. The warm summer weather brings other animals out in search of food and water, especially in the early mornings and evenings. Hikers and cyclists may encounter snakes, coyotes, tarantulas, raccoons and opposums in the Wilderness Park. Staying in groups and making noise will help minimize encounters. If you see a wild animal behaving aggressively or attacking, contact the California Department of Fish and Game. During regular office hours, call (310) 590-5132 or contact their 24-hour dispatch at (916) 445-0045.

Butterfly Pavilion lands at local botanic garden
he author Robert A. Heinlein once wrote, “Butterflies are not insects. They are self-propelled flowers.”
Regardless of your taxonomic view, both flowers and butterflies are visible in abundance this summer at Rancho Santa
Ana Botanic Garden (RSABG). Visitors can view the latter up close through July 29 in the Garden’s Butterfly Pavilion. Now in its third year, the living display features a host of area-native butterflies in all stages of development, from egg to caterpillar and from chrysalis to fluttering adult. Their names are nearly as colorful as their wings: California dogface, monarch,
COURIER photos/Steven Felschundneff Claremont resident Isaac Fang tries to coax a monarch butterfly to land on his finger Wednesday in the butterfly pavilion at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden. Isaac was visiting the pavilion for the second time this week with his mother Elizabeth and his sister Anna. The Gardenʼs annual butterfly exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily and costs $2 in addition to Garden admission.
pipevine swallowtail, gulf fritillary, mourning cloak and cabbage white. There are currently 50 to 100 butterflies flitting from plant to plant in the 24by 36-foot net enclosure located near RSABG’s Walter Lantz classroom. They often alight on visitors as well, particularly those who opt for white or light-colored clothing and move slowly. “Look, he’s on your hat!” exclaimed 5year-old Isaac Fang to a COURIER photographer who served as an unwitting host to a monarch butterfly. Isaac visited the Butterfly Pavilion on Wedneday, June 21 with his mother, Elizabeth, and his 4year-old sister, Anna. “He’s so cute,” he said of another specimen who landed on his own hand. The Butterfly Pavilion is a smaller display than the one currently on view at the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles. But the number of butterflies at the attraction hosted by the Claremont botanic garden is growing daily. Eggs dot the leaves of the native plants growing in the pavilion, spiny orange and black pipevine swallowtail caterpillars squirm in a terrarium and cocoons dangle like earrings from twigs attached to a square of Styrofoam affixed near the pavilion’s entrance. (The monarch butterfly cocoons, which are jade-colored with gold points here and there, are particularly striking.) “You get to see the full life cycle of the butterfly,” notes pavilion coordinator Bill Gendron. “Most pavilions buy their butterflies as chrysalises from Costa Rica. We offer local fare.” At $2 per visit, the neighborhood Butterfly Pavilion is also a bargain compared to the LA museum’s enclosure, which costs adults a $15 entry fee. (Butterfly Pavilion visitors must also pay for RSABG admission.) For the love of butterflies The local butterfly habitat is very much a labor of love. Beginning in March, Mr. Gendron

began roaming the Garden with a net, scooping up caterpillars and capturing butterflies. His living harvest is now drawing about 90 visitors per day, a 90 percent increase from last year. Apparently, word is getting around. “I like the pipevine swallowtail,” said 10-year-old Claremonter Amelie Cook, who was wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with a butterfly during her Wednesday visit. “It’s a really nice blue color.” Another local girl, Gabriella Armijo, 9, was also entranced by the show of color. “I think it’s pretty exciting,” she said. “You could learn a lot about butterflies. This is the most I’ve seen at one time.” Some kids never outgrow that excitement. Mr. Gendron collected and curated

the course of the exhibit, providing bits of “I didn’t know that!” wisdom to all who care to learn more about these prettiest of bugs. “They’re a little delicate,” he said. “Their exoskeletons can’t take any crushing force. But their wings are remarkably flexible. You can almost tie them in knots.”

He drifted away from the hobby while pursuing his career as an engineer, then rediscovered his entomological passion upon retirement. “A lot of my engineer friends are butterfly collectors,” he said, noting that both pursuits require close attention to detail. You can see that conscientiousness in the displays outside of the Butterfly Pavilion, which include children’s books about butterflies and boxes of carefully pinned specimens of southern California butterflies ranging from the size of a quarter to the span of a hand. There’s a certain poignancy to the vibrant display of delicately-inked wings, considering their lives were cut short mid-flight. However, while most of the smaller butterflies only live a week, the educational displays can be enjoyed for years to come. Inside the pavilion, life is in full, quivering bloom. The butterflies get all the nutrition they need from the smorgasboard of plants that has been provided. Still, they delight in sticking their noses—called a proboscis in the world of insect study—into sliced oranges that have been arranged on hanging feeders to provide additional calories. During Wednesday’s visit, another creature hoping for a snack was spotted, a lizard lying on the roof of the net enclosure, staring hungrily at the butterflies inside. It couldn’t help it; the insects are lizards’ natural prey. “We are torturing them,” joked Pauline Nash, public relations and marketing specialist at the Garden. Ms. Nash hopes many in the community will take advantage of the pavilion, and also invites the public to the attraction’s closing day. Those who visit the RSABG on July 29 will get into the Pavilion for free with Garden admission. Guests may well want to be a part of the daylong “release party,” helping a fluttering or crawling bug back into the wilds of the preserve. Of course, participants will want to use a soft touch, said Mr. Gendron, who is stationed at the pavilion for

Music event added to plethora of city July 4th activities
he city of Claremont is well-known for its grand Independence Day celebrations, engulfing the entire city in festivities from dawn to dusk. The staple Freedom 5000 race, parade and patriotic fireworks display are just a sampling of how Claremonters do Fourth of July up in a big way.
This year’s celebration, however, is getting a little bit bigger. Claremont will ring in the red, white and blue a few days early with its first patriotic musical event at the Clare-
mont Depot from 6 to 7:30 p.m. next Sunday, July 1. The concert is free and open to the public. The star-spangled review, presented by members of the Celebration Choir and Orchestra of Pomona First Baptist, presents a collection of spirited tunes honoring American heritage both past and present. From “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” to newer numbers, it is giving choir members a chance to explore the country’s history with Claremont, a city in-tune with its past. “Our country is just steeped in tradition and heritage and so is Claremont,” said Claremont resident Bob Stollmeyer, part of the congregational choir. “The heritage and the history of patriotism goes a long way, and I think

it can reach down into the roots of Claremont itself.” Though presented in Claremont for the first time this year, the patriotic musical has been a biennial tradition at Pomona First Baptist for more than a decade. “It’s a wonderful send-off for the Fourth of July,” said Pam Cameron, a Claremont resident and choir member. “It makes a nice beginning to any Independence Day celebration and brings everyone’s focus to the right spot, which is our country.” Being asked to bring its spirited music to Claremont felt like a natural extension of their choir program, according to Choir Director John Burroughs, whose goal has been to bring more of the church’s productions beyond the pews of the choir loft. “We are always looking for opportunities to do things outside of the church walls in our community,” Mr. Burroughs said. Claremont is one of more than 10 local regions represented at Pomona First Baptist. “The event is kind of a regional draw for the church and as Claremont does such a great job with the Fourth of July and since we have [the production] prepared, we thought it would be neat,” he added. Mr. Burroughs began the patriotic musical program in 1996 after moving to the area from New Jersey several years prior. “We have a really exciting Christmas program and Easter at the Fairplex. Adding a Fourth of July presentation just made logical sense as another area to celebrate
our country and our patriotism as well as our Christian heritage,” said Mr. Burroughs, who began his all-volunteer position as choir director of the church soon after joining the congregation. In its first year, the choir performed a musical, but has since stuck to piecing together musical selections from various musicals and other sources. “That way it is always something a little new and doesn’t get old,” Mr. Burroughs explained. Prep work for the large production, comprised of about 70 choir members and 40 musicians, begins months, and several holidays, in advance. The moment Easter pastels are packed away, choir members get out their red, white and blue to begin patriotic preparations. Weekly rehearsals started right away. “The main thing is finding the music and helping the choir memorize it,” Mr. Burroughs said. Mr. Stollmeyer, a veteran of the US Navy from World War II, finds the event can be moving to the point of tears for him and many others.
“It simply helps get you into the impact of what serving our country means,” Mr. Stollmeyer said, “and the tradition of what our nation has been through to become the nation that it is. The framers of our Constitution are a model of what we try to sing about.” The public is invited to bedeck the Depot with picnic blankets and lawn chairs for the musical presentation. While the performance at the Depot, 200 W. First St., will have a more limited orchestral accompaniment, those unable to attend the Sunday evening production can view the regular event in its full glory that morning at the 8:30 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. services at Pomona First Baptist, 601 N. Garey Ave. They will also be streamed live at www.pfblive.tv. “I just feel honored to give credence to our tradition, our culture and our heritage, and Claremont fits into that perfectly,” Mr. Stollmeyer said.
