CUSD pools on last leg


Dear Editor:
Im writing to express my support of
Measure G. I am the parent of two students currently enrolled in CUSD. One is
at El Roble and the other at CHS. Both of
my kids are swimmers, and the deterioration of the pools at both school sites is a
concern for us.
I am not sure if the public is aware that
the pool at CHS, which is 36 years old, is
in jeopardy of closing. The average life
of a pool is 25 to 35 years. The CHS pool
has cracked and deteriorating coping, the
deck is peeling and there is exposed concrete where plaster is no longer in existence. The heaters and pumps break
down approximately every six months.
Because of the heaters age, it can take
weeks to receive the parts. The pool at El
Roble has been closed for quite some
time.
Recently, the LA County Public Health
Inspector, for a variety of violations as
indicated above, temporarily closed the
CHS pool. It is my understanding that
they have agreed to let us reopen the pool
for water polo and swim teams after
completing some patching of the coping.
Currently, recreational swimming, PE
classes and community use of the pool is
not allowed until major repairs are made.
If Proposition G does not pass, it is almost certain that the CHS pool will be
closed for good. With the loss of both
CUSD pools and no community pool in
the city of Claremont, the CHS water
polo and swim teams will need to look
elsewhere for practice facilities, league
home games and meets.
Its a shame when we have water polo
teams and swimmers that continually
perform well within the Palomares
League and CIF. They do so with pools
that are in total disarray. Niki Furstman
CHS Swim team booster secretary

We need Prop 59
Dear Editor:
I admire Ellen Taylor, but I must take
issue with her (and the League of Women
Voters) recommendation on Proposition
59. That proposition instructs California
officials to pursue the overturning of the
Citizens United Supreme Court decision
by means of a constitutional amendment.
That decision, involving as it does the
obnoxious principle that corporations are
people and the anti-democratic idea that
money is speechprinciples which lead
to the conclusion that limiting the amount
of money a corporation can spend on political activities is unconstitutionally limiting a persons right to speechis a
significant boost to the expenditure of
huge amounts of money in American politics.
Of course, Ms. Taylor (and the
League) are right that changing the constitution is a slow process and that in
order to prevent a further slide out of
democracy we need swift action. However, it does not follow that Proposition
59 ought to be rejectedpassing 59 is
not in the slightest incompatible with simultaneously pursuing other means of rejecting our excessive dependence on
money and thus monied interests.
In fact, if California were to vote overwhelmingly in favor of 59, it would send
a very strong message to the nation that
we in this state are serious about eliminating the billions spent by the rich and
powerful to seduce elected officials into
support for their policies.

An open letter to Democrats


Dear Editor:
After another shameful showing in
the debate, it appears that Donald Trump
stands a good chance of losing the election to Hillary Clinton. So why go out
and vote? Youll get what you want in
the end, right? The democratic candidate
in the White House, a woman in the
White Househow positively progressive!
The truth is, giving Hillary the presidency with a Republican majority in the
senate and house is really just another
wasted four-year term full of bickering,
concessions and threats to shut down the
government. Do you remember?
Well, this is a senate election, too. The
current US Senate has 54 Republicans
and 45 Democrats (including one independent). There are 34 seats up for
grabs, of which 24 are held by Republicans, 10 by Democrats. Donkey needs to
gain four seats to take control, assuming
Hillary wins. A few months ago, this
was considered unthinkable. Today,
most polls suggest that it might be a coin
toss!
So, my fellow Democrats, if you really want a victory, get off all of your
asses and vote a complete Democratic
ticket, especially the congressional
races. Vote in overwhelming numbers.
Make America Sane Again!

Active Claremont offers pro-and-con forum on Measure G

easure G was hotly


debated on the floor
of the Hughes Centers Padua Room, as proponents and detractors weighed in
on the local school bond.
The forum, held Thursday, October 20
during an Active Claremont meeting,
featured Richard Fass, a newly-retired
Pomona College administrator and chair
of the Measure G advocacy group RISE
(Renew Infrastructure and Sustain Excellence) in favor of the $58 million, 30year general obligation bond. Jay
Pocock, owner of Superior Trailer
Works, offered arguments against the
measure.
Both men are longtime Claremont residents with children attending CUSD
schools.
The crux of Mr. Fass argument is that
the schools are in disrepair, the state offers no funding for construction and
maintenance of facilities and Measure G
represents the districts only hope of tackling much-needed deferred maintenance.
While Mr. Pocock agreed Claremont
schools are in bad shape, he believes
CUSD needs not a bond measure but a
significant change in its policies.
He centered his argument on the
amount of interdistrict transfer students
(IDTs) that he said place strain on the
district. Mr. Pocock said IDTs crowd the
schools, causing the district to rely on
stop-gap measures like portable classrooms.
At one point, he said Condit Elementary looked like a FEMA center, due to
the amount of trailers at the school. Mr.
Pocock feels CUSD is operating like a
profit center, as opposed to an educational organization.
Now Im not saying they dont need
education or cant get an education here,
but why are we continually growing?
Weve grown 50 percent in six years,
Mr. Pocock said. This is a big issue, at
least to me and many other voters.
Mr. Fass said he wasnt prepared to
talk about IDTs, but said the students are
brought to the district in part to fill in the
blanks at schools with dwindling enrollment. Claremont has been able to avoid
furloughs and teacher layoffs, Mr. Fass
said, through a system of flexible capacity by bringing in IDTs to fill open
spaces in classrooms.
And the reason was that when enrollments were dropping everywhere, we
had the flexibility to bring in inter-district transfers and retain our enrollment

Claremont RISE chair Richard Fass, left, makes the argument in favor of voting
for Measure G. He and JayPocock presented the pros and cons of the school
bond measure last Thursday during a debate like forum sponsored by Active
Claremont.

to keep our programs going, Mr. Fass


said. We avoided the disruption and the
pain that was felt in other communities.
Mr. Fass noted the money brought in
from IDTs is channeled into programs
like performing arts and the International
Baccalaureate program. The flexibility
also allows Claremont families to enter
into the elementary school of their
choice.
It doesnt drain the program, Mr.
Fass added. It enriches the program.
In his closing statement, Mr. Fass said
that IDTs were only responsible for 16
percent of disciplinary actions by students last year and had a slightly higher
attendance record and GPA than resident
students. If IDTs were taken from the
system, he asserted, only about 26 portables would be taken down, or about half
of the current number.
The ballot argument against Measure
G for example used the term diluting our
kids education as a ballot argument that
Mr. Pocock signed, he said. And when
I hear something like that, diluting our
kids education, I dont quite know what
that means, but it is disturbing to me.
Mr. Pocock countered that most of the
IDTs are at what he called peripheral
schoolsschools like Vista del Valle
and Mountain View that are away from
the center of townand questioned why
resident parents move their children to

schools like Sycamore and Condit.


If you want to have IDTs, I am all for
it. I dont wait to pay for it, but they
should be equally dispersed at all schools
no matter what, he said.
Mr. Fass told the audience that the
bond was originally set at $111 million
and whittled down to $58 million
through a series of public meetings and
an electronic ThoughtExchange survey.
Mr. Fass said the $48 per $100,000 in
assessed valuation would amount to
around $130 annually for the average
Claremont family. He compared the
bond to similar measures in LA County,
noting that the 21 school bonds passed
since 2001 averaged about $90 million
apiece, or $14,000 per student. Measure
Gs $58 million bond, by comparison,
averages $8,200 per student, he said.
In the scheme of things, its a very
modest request, he said.
Written questions were then submitted
from the audience and were asked by
Claremont councilmember and debate
moderator Corey Calaycay. Questions
ranged from the option of a parcel tax as
opposed to a GO bond to the impact on
seniors with a fixed income.
Mr. Pocock lauded the parcel tax as an
acceptable alternative, calling it a pay
as you go system.
You pretty much get 11,000 households, I think, you get $200 a household,

thats $2.5 million a year, times 12


years, he said. You can do a heck of a
lot of work on that money on a long-term
plan.
Mr. Fass cautioned against the use of a
parcel tax, calling it regressivethe
amount would be the same fixed rate for
a smaller parcel as it would be for a
larger business or home on another parcel. Additionally, Mr. Fass noted that in
spite of the dollar amount inflating over
time, Claremonters would be better off
paying on a bond for 30 years as opposed
to paying it up front.
Thats because when you pay it over
time, even though the nominal amount is
large, 30 years from now, the amount
youre paying is worth a lot less, Mr.
Fass said.
While answering a question regarding
seniors with a fixed income, Mr. Fass
called the tax not an enormous change
to existing property taxes and emphasized that better schools would add to rising property values in Claremont.
It may not help their pocketbook
grow tomorrow, but it doesnt mean
there isnt wealth being created, and the
schools are part of it, he said.
Mr. Pocock said the extra charge could
be difficult for those on a fixed income,
and brought up additional debt charges
by the district.
The school district is still paying on
that air conditioning loan for another 12
years, eight years, somewhere around
there for a loan that was around the same
time, he said. So its continually building more debt.
One question covered one potential
outcome of the bondits possible failure at the polls. What would happen if
Claremonters vote it down?
Nothing, Mr. Pocock said. Come
back in one year with a good plan, a reduction and an actually reasonable
amount of assets and put it on a parcel
[tax]. I will be 100 percent for it.
Mr. Fass painted a dire picture of a
cash-strapped district if G is voted down,
noting that a lot of the projects on the
measures list would not be funded.
I think what will happen is the school
board would have to sit down and say we
have no money, we cant do these
thingsor maybe a couple of minor
things that seem absolutely urgent, he
said. And we will limp along with a
school district, whose facilities are well
below the standard of the programs.
Claremonters will go to the polls to
vote on Measure G on November 8.

Council officially takes stand against Proposition 57

he Claremont City Council took an


official stance to an upcoming ballot
measure during a full agenda for the
last meeting in October.

Claremont Police Chief Paul Cooper presented the


staff report during Tuesdays meeting, recommending
the opposition to Proposition 57, which the city says is
not what it claims to be.

The proposition, proposed by Governor Jerry Brown


and titled the Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act of
2016, is seen as a sweeping change to
CITY
the states parole system and includes
COUNCIL
expanding parole and good behavior
credits for non-violent offenders. Its seen as the latest
attempt to overhaul Californias overcrowded prison
population.
But the real consequences of the proposition, Chief

Cooper said, would be an increase in crime similar to


the aftermath of Proposition 47, which was passed by
voters in 2014. Under one provision of Prop 57, Chief
Cooper said, felons would be eligible for release only
after the end date of their primary offense.
Felons who have committed multiple crimes against
multiple victims will be eligible for release at the same
time as inmates who committed one crime against one

victim, Chief Cooper said.


The result would be an immediate negative impact to
cities like Claremont, which has seen a noticeable uptick
in property crimes in the past year, Chief Cooper said.
The council was in agreement, noting that while reform is needed in the prison system, Prop 57 is not the
way to go.
Councilmember Opanyi Nasiali noted that Prop 57
would exacerbate the situation reportedly created by
Prop 47. When the citizens passed Prop 47, we didnt
realize what we were getting ourselves into, Mr. Nasiali
said.
Councilmember Corey Calaycay pointed out that he
usually wasnt comfortable with voting on a resolution
such as this one, saying he did not want to put the citizens of Claremont on record by voting for or against a
proposition.
This time, however, he made an exception, noting he
had been fielding phone calls from residents about residential burglaries and citing the need for people to be
aware of the ramifications of such a ballot measure.
I do feel its important, at least from an educational
perspective, to bring awareness to this issue, Mr. Calaycay said.
The resolution passed unanimously, 5-0
Organic recycling program
The council also unanimously agreed to create an organic food waste recycling program, which would
allow businesses to enter into a program to recycle and
compost their organic and food waste that they had previously discarded.
The program is in direct response to AB 1826, which
was passed in 2015 and requires mandatory commercial
organic recycling throughout California.
According to Director of Community Services Roger
Bradley, organics can include food waste materials,
landscape debris and food-soiled paper products, paper
plates, napkins or coffee grounds.
After getting the directive from the city council on
March 22, the city held workshops with commercial

owners to determine the best way to deal with organic


waste. A consensus was reached on a city-run food
waste collection program, which was also determined
to be the least-expensive option, the staff report said.
Basically what it requires is that businesses that generate food waste material or organic matter, that they
arrange for recycling that material, Mr. Bradley said,
noting that the material gets sent to a composting facility and then recycled into the soil.
Interested businesses will receive an additional 64gallon bin to collect the organic material, which would
be serviced by city employees on Monday, Wednesday,
Friday and Saturday.
While the city must report business compliance to
the state every year, there are no current penalties for
those who dont comply, Mr. Bradley said.
The overall cost of the program is $104,400 for 20162017 and $149,800 for 2017-2018, which includes material processing costs, disposal costs and
staffingClaremont would be hiring a full-time solid
waste operator to oversee the program.
In addition, a five percent increase in commercial
trash rates will be necessary over the next two years to
cover the costs, according to the staff report.
The city would need to enter into an agreement with
a local processing facility to accept the material, however, and that process continues. After fielding bids
from companies such as Burrtec ($74.47 per ton of
waste) and Grand Central Recycling & Transfer Station ($90 per ton), the city believes it can hold out
longer for better bids.
Councilmember Joe Lyons asked Mr. Bradley if
there were any local composting options, and Mr.
Bradley responded he had met with Sustainable Claremont over the past few months to create a potentially
small-scale compost facility in the community.
Freeman Allen presented an additional option during
public comment, stating that several compost plots
each about a half-acrecould be created for compost
sites to grow urban agriculture, similar to the Growing
Club in Pomona.
We could use this valuable material to actually bolster the income from the process while avoiding the ex-

An Upland man was arrested after an
apparently random act of vandalism at
the Chevron-McDonalds. Jeffrey Clarke,
40, pulled his truck into a parking stall
next to a tan Toyota Camry around 2:30
p.m. Mr. Clarke reportedly took out a
12-inch-long wooden-handled carbon
steel brush and began hitting the Camry
next to him. The Camry suffered
scratches to the rear trunk and the front
passenger hood before the driver pulled
the car out of the stall. Total damage to
the Camry was about $350. Mr. Clarke
never spoke to either victim, and did not
know them from a previous encounter.
Police were called, Mr. Clarke was found
at the location and he was arrested. According to police, Mr. Clarke told officers he was having a bad day.

in the car got out and punched the witness twice in the head. The driver and the
other suspect got back in the car to flee
the scene, and the witness held on to the
doorframe of the car. She was dragged
about 100 feet, sustaining several
scratches to her legs, hands, forearms
and feet, Lt. Ciszek said. She was transported to Pomona Valley Hospital for
treatment. The driver later went to the

Claremont COURIER/Friday, October 28, 2016

Claremont COURIER editorial staff says yes to Measure G

he editorial staff of the Claremont


COURIER newspaper urges a yes
vote on Measure G.
The need for funds to repair and improve public schools in Claremont is clear.
We feel that district staff has done a good
joba very good jobof outlining needs
and paring down the to-do list to only the
most critical projects.

As we have previously reported, this bond will be


used to address repair issues on the many older school
buildings throughout the district. Because of this, residents will see the impact for decades to come. And its
not just one school, or one particular facility. All
schools are included to address the numerous needs for
the aging school sites.
Despite the nearly 40 public meetings held by
CUSD, and the ThoughtExchange survey open to the
community, some questions about the necessity of
Measure G remain. Its not our typical endorsement
format but, this year, we thought wed simply address
some common questions and concerns weve heard
from community members.
The interdistrict transfer student (IDT) policy
hurts the district.

Those opposed to Measure G have argued that CUSDs liberal interdistrict


transfer policy has compounded school
site problems by forcing the district to
over-utilize trailers. We only partly agree.
It would behoove the district to carefully analyze the
IDT policy and look at why some school sites are so
heavily populated by transfer studentssome school
enrollment is as much as 50 percent transfer students,
while other sites host a more reasonable 15 to 25 percent. We believe there are adjustments that can be
made to enrollment so the district isnt spending funds
on portables when there is room at one of the other elementary sites.
District representatives have said that dramatically
reducing the number of transfer students would result
in either closure of an elementary school or reduction
to curriculum, like the International Baccalaurette program at CHS. We dont know if this is true or not but,
honestly, it doesnt really matter. IDT populations dont
change the fact that many of our schools are more than
50 years old and desperately need upgrading and basic
repair.
When sites like Sycamore Schoolwhich offers a
multi-age, alternative learning programhave no interdistrict transfers because they are at capacity, it is
probably time for CUSD to consider replicating the
schools model at another school site, like Oakmont.

Vote early through


the registrar
Early voting is available at the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Building,
located at 12400 Imperial Highway,
Room 3002, in Norwalk. Two weekends of early voting for the Novemberelection will be offered October 29-30
and November 5-6, between the hours
of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Early voting locations will be at the
Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk
Building in Norwalk, West Covina City
Hall, West Los Angeles College, the
North Hollywood Regional Library, El
Camino College and Antelope Valley

The result could realize a more even distribution of


IDTs, while offering a curriculum highly sought by
Claremont residents.
The bottom line is this: CUSD can reduce IDTs or
shift them to different school sites, but the roofs will
still leak and the El Roble pool will still be empty, a
symbol of the districts very real problem of widespread deferred maintenance.

because everything was going out of the country. A


shortage of products like rebar and concrete in the US
resulted in skyrocketing costs for materials, which unexpectedly ate up the bulk of Measure Y funds.
This time around, Ms. Shoemaker has said the district will move very quickly to take advantage of historically low interest rates, and will waste no time in
getting the projects completed.

What about Prop 51? If it passes, wont the district


get enough money to fix schools?

What about the surplus property money? Isnt


that enough?

Proposition 51, the first statewide education-related bond measure since 2006,
authorizes $9 billion in general obligation
bonds for construction and modernization
of public schools, as well as vocational
education and community college facilities.
Of the $9 billion available, should the measure pass,
only $3 billion will be available for K-12 modernization projects.
Prop 51 works like a matching grantschool districts that already have money will get money. As Lisa
Shoemaker, CUSD assistant superintendent of business
services, explained in a recent interview, passage of
Prop 51 could help the district but only nominally.
Its so small, I dont have a lot of high hopes it will
provide a lot of money for us, she said. We dont
have any way of knowing whats already in the
pipeline.
This pipeline refers to school districts that already
have money in hand from prior bond measures, with
projects already approved by the state. Districts in this
position get first dibs on any Prop 51 money and, with
1,000 school districts statewide, $3 billion for modernization will go very fast.
If Prop 51 passes, we will absolutely pursue it,
Ms. Shoemaker emphasized. But we need the local
bond measure to even qualify. If we dont have any
money, we dont qualify. We cant take advantage of it
unless we have a local bond passed already.
The district didnt get everything done on
Measure Y, and were still paying on it.
Some residents are troubled by the way the district
spent Measure Y funds. The $49 million bond measure
allowed CUSD to make some improvements, but not
as many as the district had planned.
The last time state money was available, districts
went for it and the cost of construction escalated because everyone was going out for projects at the same
time, Ms. Shoemaker explained.
Because of the influx of state money for school capital projects, California saw a dramatic spike in projects
going out to bid. This prompted contractors to raise
their fees. At the same time, China experienced an unprecedented building boom. As Ms. Shoemaker related, the supply chain was diminished in the US

Vote-by-mail dropoff at city hall


The city of Claremont offers a vote
by mail (VBM) drop-off program. A
ballot box will be accessible for the
public to drop off vote-by-mail ballots
in the city clerks office, located at city
hall, 207 Harvard Ave., from 7 a.m. to 6
p.m., Monday through Thursday.
Credentialed and identifiable teams
from the Registrar-Recorder/County
Clerk will exchange the ballot boxes
weekly. This service will be available

No, it isnt enough. Not even close.


The district sold the old service center and former
district office properties on Base Line Road in 2015,
bringing in nearly $11 million for the two parcels. So
far, those funds have been used to complete a steel
manufactured building at the San Jose Avenue service
center for $2.4 million. CUSD also installed a modular
building at a cost of $369,243 for a permanent library
at Sycamore School, spent $1.5 million on Common
Core curriculum, including the purchase of equipment
and iPads, and completed a roofing project at the high
school for $1.8 million.
Another $1.5 million was used to pay off a Career
Technical Education Grant from the state for completion of the Don P. Fruechte Theatre for Performing Arts
at Claremont High. The resulta source of pride to the
school and communityis an example of how a wellexecuted project can galvanize a campus.
The districts final surplus property, the former La
Puerta Intermediate School, was twice poised to sell
for a handsome profit, $19 million in December of
2013 and $14.35 million in June 2015. In each case,
the would-be buyers pulled out after residents near the
property expressed displeasure with the planned use of
the site. With this level of public outcry, it is uncertain
when the district will be able to sell the property.
The attempts to sell the La Puerta property illustrate
the districts commitment to spare residents the burden
of picking up the tab on all of its facilities needs. Our
hope is that consensus on appropriate use of the La
Puerta property will be reached in the near future.
Why now?
CUSDs last bond measure passed 16 years ago.
Claremont homeowners will average $48 per
$100,000 for Measure G, which, from our perspective, is a sound investment. We have confidence in
our current superintendent, Jim Elsasser, and believe
he, along with fellow district administrators, will
oversee Measure G funds with caution.
Measure G is a sensible bond coming at a time when
the district is fortunate to have sensible leadership. We
look forward to seeing a positive transformation at our
aging school sites and will rely on CUSDs continued
transparency and a vigilant oversight committee to ensure that residents money is well spent.

until Monday, November 7.

Nasty talk

by Mellissa Martinez

he latest cringe-worthy debate moment is fresh on everyones mind;


When Trump hunched forward
and loud-whispered into the microphone,
such a nasty woman!
I doubt he knew that he would be triggering a fullfledged feminine embrace of the word nasty.
To be fair, not all women have welcomed the word.
Trump ladies have been oddly quiet on this particular
misogynistic mess-upa sharp contrast to their reaction to his grab pussy confession. In that case, most
of his supportersmale and femaleran to his rescue
with a quick locker-room talk defense strategy. His
campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, even told democrats in an NPR interview later that week to stop
pussyfooting around.
Did Conway slip up? No way. Everything said by
both campaigns is carefully reviewed by language
consultants. She made a clear and calculated decision
to remind listeners that the word pussy isnt so bad
after all. And, when used as the compound pussyfoot,
its downright innocuous. Unfortunately for her boss,
almost everyone else felt differently. Journalists found
themselves fumbling for words when trying to report
on the event, actually replacing the offensive slur with
kitty cat, crotch, the P-word, private parts and
Im not allowed to say the word on television.
In the case of nasty, it was the Democrats who responded quickly, not so much in defense of their candidate (who took the insult in stride), but of the word.
Within minutes women were taking back the word
nasty with humor. Facebook lit up with videos of
Janet Jackson singing her hit song Nasty Girl and

LEX
IN THE

CITY
hashtags #nastywomanforHillary, #nastywomengetthingsdone and my favorite #makeAmericanastyagain!
The next morning, I was entertained by a fullfledged Saturday Night Live-style commercial for
Nasty Woman Perfume promising to ensure wearers
77 cents to every male dollar.
Nasty carries a connotation of being both morally
and physically reprehensible. The OED states its
meaning as filthy, dirty, annoying, contemptible,
spiteful, offensive, and repellent. Although its origin
is unknown, a connection has been suggested with the
Middle French nastre, meaning strange or of low social class. This was a shortened version of villenastre,
from villain + the suffix astre. According to the
OED, the connotation of nasty (and pussy for that
matter) is much less offensive in British English. It
suggests that the words are on their way to becoming
less abhorrent, and unfortunately for Trump, the transition is happening more quickly across the pond.
The amazing response to Trumps insult is a phenomenon known in the linguistic community as reappropriation, a method by which a stigmatized group
reevaluates a negative labelusually an ethnic or sexual slurand begins purposefully referring to itself

with that label. It usually begins as an act of courage


by a few, but later becomes an important tool for the
wider community. This happened with words like
queer, gay, nerd, geek, tree hugger and even
suffragette. Initially the diminutive suffix ette was
combined with suffrage to denote the smallness of
the movement. It was used to belittle women, and so
they reclaimed the word and proudly stood behind it.
It should be noted that Obama also reclaimed the intended derogatory term Obamacare when he famously
said, Theyre right! I DO care.
There are some words that have been going through
the process of reappropriation for many years, but still
havent been able to shed much of their negative
essence. In my opinion, the B-word and the N-word
still carry too strong a negative connotation for me to
write them.
One of the difficulties with reclaiming a word is that
the old group, which used the word in a stigmatizing
way, often continues to use it with hateful intention.
This keeps the word somewhere in the limbo zone of
being used by the oppressed group but shunned by the
wider public.
The incredible thing about nasty is that it seems to
have skipped over the lengthy time period that it often
takes to reappropriate a word. Rather than going
through years of back and forth, it got regenerated
overnight.
This week I have attended social events, elementary
school parties and work functions where someone has
inevitably cracked a joke about being nasty. It feels as
if everyone, even many Republicans, is chuckling at
Trump. Ironically, it was HIS nastiness that led to the
words fresh popularity and a brand-new, less offensive, place in our lexicon.

El Roble staff weighs in


Dear Editor:
Our public school facilities are in dire
need of help. If you have not already
seen the Claremont Unified School District facilities video by Claremont RISE,
it is worth watching. It gives a comprehensive view of the needs of all of our
schools.
As Claremont residents and teachers
we are writing on behalf of all of our
schools, but would like to share an example of the learning environment at El
Roble Intermediate School because it is
where we teach our students every day.
We have six portable classrooms that
are 30 years old and falling apart. Based
on their life expectancy, they should have
been replaced 15 years ago. Also, our air
conditioning and heating systems are in
need of repair and our roofs need to be
replaced.
The El Roble pool, built in 1958, has
been closed for two years now, sitting as
an empty gaping hole, unfit for use. Before its closure, the El Roble pool served
as a tremendous resource for our school
and the Claremont community. It was
used by the American Red Cross, Mt.
Baldy Aquatics, city of Claremont Learn
to Swim programs, water polo clubs,
CHS and the El Roble physical education
water safety curriculum. The joy of hearing students use the pool, while learning
in a safe and healthy way to stay physically and mentally fit, is greatly missed.
In addition, our PE locker rooms were
designed in 1958 for approximately 600
students. Almost 60 years later we have
roughly 1,100 students using the same,
now overcrowded facilities, without air
conditioning or heating.
All of our Claremont teachers take
pride in providing a positive learning environment for students to thrive and become tomorrows leaders. Our students
deserve schools with facilities that are
modernized and give them a feeling of
pride about their schools.
Please support our Claremont schools

Mountain View on Measure G


Dear Editor:
The following question was recently
raised in the COURIER: Its been six
years since the meltdown of community
support for Measure CL. Since that time,
what has changed?
The article discussed interdistrict
transfer students and the need to right
size our schools. Academic performance was related to transfer students and
enrollment numbers, with little talk
about the initial question regarding
change. After Mountain View Elementary was called a low-performing, IDT
heavy school, we felt compelled to set
the record straight.
What has changed is that the roofing
has become leakier, the energy systems
less efficient, the air conditioning faultier, the boards and beams looser and the
windows draftier. The walkways have
become worn, the wooden ramps have
weathered, casings have become worn
exposing electrical wiring, handles and
locks have become loose, concrete has
cracked, bathroom tiles have broken and
door hinges now hang.
Six years of change in the form of dayto-day wear and tear of school facilities
have occurred. Six years, beyond the
previous decades of wear that have
stretched every surface and structure to
its limit. The $58 million generated by
the passage of Measure G is to update
and restore these things. It is true that

portable classrooms are a part of facilities, but they are by no means the defining component of a glaring need to
renovate our schools.
The article stated that 7,065 students
attended CUSD schools in 2016, an increase from the 7,036 that attended
CUSD in 2010. Thats 29 more students
district-wide in six years. Certainly the
argument is not that 29 students spread
across the city are responsible for whats
changed.
It was also stated that IDTs in 2000 were
at 17 percent and are now at 25 percent.
This is an increase of 8 percent over 16
years or 0.5 percent per year. Is the argument that portable classrooms and facilities maintenance wouldnt be needed if
IDTs didnt grow by a half percent each
year?
Last weeks article also claimed that
IDTs are specifically funneled to the
low performing schools, specifically,
Mountain View, Oakmont and Vista.
This categorization is incorrect.
Spring of 2016 was the first time in
three years that state assessment growth
data was available. The California State
Standards Test (CST) was administered for
the last time in spring 2013. Approximately four months ago, the California Assessment of Student Performance and
Progress (CAASPP) was given for the second time and growth data became available. In the final years of the CSTspecifically, 2011, 2012 and 2013Mountain
Views Academic Performance Index
(API) scores were 863, 880, and 873 respectively. These were among the highest district-wide and we were recognized
at the state and federal levels for our ex-

cellence. During these years, our IDT percentages were also among the highest in
the district.
The recent results of the CAASPP test
given this spring were not on par with our
achievements of the past, but we have already begun the work of analyzing our performance to determine how we can improve student learning and attain higher
achievement.
We have not experienced a beat
down from the district level as was
claimed. We firmly believe that the three
portable classrooms (on our campus for
over 20 years) are not the cause for our
one-year decline in test performance.
Vista Del Valle, with its 56 percent IDT
population, ranked fourth out of the seven elementary schools on the CAASPP
this past year. In English Language Arts,
their performance score was just 1 percent
different from Condit.
Measure G is a bond to repair facilities,
so we are unclear how school test performance is related to its passage. Is the
argument that if all of our students had
Claremont residency they could attain
higher scores on future rounds of testing?
In regard to testing and school performance, the past six years have seen a lot of
change; however, IDTs do not and should
not factor into our performance data.
We are teachers and community members. We own homes in the city and our
own children attend Claremont schools.
Some of us are CUSD alumni. We are also
voters. We support Measure G to improve
and maintain the facilities we need to concentrate on the many changes that happen
every day.

Life among the canals

by Jan Wheatcroft

first visited Holland in l958 when I


was 18 on a student tour. I remember
that it cost $950 for the whole summer, including the transportation by ship,
Holland Americans Johan von Oldenbarneveldt, an old vessel once used as a
troop transport in WWII and then used as
a one-class student ship.

I immediately fell in love with a Dutch fellow who


was the ships hairdresser. When we reached Holland,
he spent much of his free time showing me around. I
loved Holland from that beginning. The feeling has
persisted since then.
While traveling in Holland this summer with my
friend Frances, we first spent four days in the countryside and then moved over to Haarlem for a few days.
We spent the last days in Amsterdam.
I enjoy the Dutch people, friendly but not overwhelming, the charm of the old houses next to the
canals, the huge population of bike riders and the
clever things they attach to the bikes for added room,
and the flatness of the land. The list is long.
In Haarlem, we booked a canal boat ride on an open
boat with a lovely guide, who backed in and out of
both large and small canals covered in flowers with
towering old houses looking down at us. The feeling
was actually one of openness, and there were quite a
few working windmills above us as we passed by. We
bypassed the clothing shops and boutiques but had fun
exploring cheese shops for a taste of local cheeses and
visiting a smoothie store, which made delicious

smoothies to order.
We could happily lounge in cafes and just watch the
variety of riders and bicycles. It seemed that there were
more women riders than men. Also, Dutch bikes seem
larger than what people ride here. And the clever attachments that people added on. Back and front side
baskets and leather bags, and additional wagons to
push in front or pull in the back. Groups of two or three
people riding together and laughing and chatting away.
Whenever I am on a bike, I have to set all of my concentration just to remain on the seat and upright. They
just zip along fearlessly swerving around corners.
By the time we settled into Amsterdam for our last
few days, we had developed great knowledge of bikeriding culture. It is obvious that bike riders have the
first right of way on the streets. Cars and people jump
out of the way when bikes come toward them. Then
come the cars and the last is the human. Parking can be
a big problem. There are signs in Dutch saying no bike
parking along this building or that bridge but no one
seems to care, and they fill the spaces with bikes and
walkers have to squeeze by. Then there are the bike
parking lots, some small and others huge with rows and
rows of bikes. How anyone can find their bike is a
mystery.

Once when I was eating my favorite meal of raw


Maatjas herring on a bun with onions from a corner
kiosk, someone knocked over a bike at the beginning
of a row of bikes and they all fell like dominoes with a
loud resounding crash. Another of my favorite bikes
was the beer-drinking bike table. The table was on
wheels and there were four seats along each side which
were actually bikes. A canopy provided protection and
a head man rode on the front bike. Everyone sipped
and sang and peddled along the canal in the most carefree of ways.
Along the canal are tables and chairs just across
from a restaurant. How restful and pleasant it was to
sit, eat, drink some wine and chat, all while watching
the roads and the boats passing by. Along the canals are
houseboats where people live year-round. I have always longed to stay in a boatel.
One evening as we were enjoying our evening drink,
a young lady brought her bulldog to the restaurant. She
sat down on one chair and her dog hopped onto the
other chair, content to watch the life pass in front of
him. Amsterdam is full of things to see. The museums
are excellent. Street markets are fun. The different
areas of the city have their own personalities. Side
streets are cobbled and full of plants and flowers, even
in the tightest of spaces. There is an overall cheeriness
just being there.
Once when I was traveling in Europe, I developed
sciatica and was in pain and it was hard to walk. I decided to come to Amsterdam where I could enjoy life
and still walk around, as it is so flat. Holland is a lovely
place and I enjoyed it as much this past summer as I
did when I was 18 and discovered it for the first time.

Robert Paul Weatherton

OBITUARIES

Concrete pipe pioneer, family man


Robert Paul Weatherton, a longtime
Claremont resident known affectionately
as Big Bob, died on October 22, 2016
after a courageous battle with cancer.He
was 84.
He was born in 1932 in New Kensington, Pennsylvania to Paul and Ruth
Weatherton. He was raised in Latrobe,
Pennsylvania where he occasionally double-dated with Arnold Palmer. After their
father was injured in a coal mining accident that left him a paraplegic, Bob and
his brother Clay worked two jobs in order
to maintain the family farm. It was while
working his second job in construction
that Mr. Weatherton was exposed to his
lifelong professional passion: the concrete pump. His personal passion was his
wife, Nancy McCullough, whom he married in 1954. Two sons, Dan and Tim,
soon followed. Although he moved to
Claremont in 1961, he remained an ardent
fan of Pittsburgh sports teams, especially
his beloved Steelers.
With a background in engineering from
the University of Pittsburgh, Mr. Weatherton revolutionized the concrete pumping industry by developing new technology including the articulating boom arm
for concrete pumps. Over the years, he became a sought-after manager for various
concrete pump manufacturers and companies, not just because of his extensive
product knowledge, but mostly due to his
savvy and affable nature with people. Bob
never met a stranger, and always made it

a point to personally connect with each


and every person with whom he came in
contact.
In the early 1970s, Mr. Weatherton was
instrumental in founding the American
Concrete Pumping Association, which
co-sponsored World of Concrete, the
largest annual trade show in the world
for concrete and masonry professionals.
He was an expert in industry safety, crisis
management and negotiations, and was a
sought-after public speaker. Most of all,
he took great pride in mentoring people
who later went on to management positions in the concrete industry and helped
many more open businesses in this new
field.

In 1986, Mr. Weatherton went into


business for himself and started the Concrete Pump Store, headquartered in
Claremont. The Store was not only a
broker for all types of concrete pump and
material handling equipment, but also offered management and safety consulting
services and company and equipment appraisals, as well as expert witness testimony. Concrete pumping companies all
over North America contacted Mr. Weatherton on a regular basis for his expert advice in helping them better manage their
businesses.
In 1991, Mr. Weatherton was the recipient of the American Concrete Pumping Associations Achievement Award for
his outstanding contributions toward the
advancement of the concrete pumping industry. He also received the first-ever
Presidential Award in 2014. That same
year, he was named the most influential
person in the concrete industry by Concrete Construction magazine and received
the first Legacy Award from the World of
Concrete. Last year, WOC established a
scholarship fund, the Bob Weatherton
Award, to keep this legacy alive.
Mr. Weatherton treasured his personal
and professional relationships, and was a
longtime member of Purpose Church
(Pomona First Baptist). He was known
to all as a man of God, his family shared.
If being a man of God means creating
community and infusing relationships
with truth and love, then he accomplished

his purpose.
Mr. Weatherton was also a founding
member of the Claremont Club, a member of Redhill Country Club, a Shriner, a
32nd degree Mason and beloved customer to the businesses in the Claremont
Village. Many Claremont residents know
Big Bob as the man who walked the
Claraboya Hill every day.
Bob was known as a loyal and faithful
husband to his wife Nancy, who predeceased her husband in 2008 after a prolonged illness. In 2011 he married Jane
Goodfellow, whom he met while walking
the Hill. They happily shared the last five
years of his life. He was heartbroken
when his son Dan died suddenly in 2012.
He is survived by his wife Jane Goodfellow, son Tim, grandchildren Kirk and
Kelsey, brother Clay and nieces Sharon
(Ken) DeMichela, Judy Kita and Carol
Johnson.
Visitation will be held on Thursday,
November 3 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Todd Memorial Chapel, 325 N. Indian Hill Blvd.,
Claremont. Funeral services will be held
on Friday, November 4 at 10 a.m. at Purpose Church (Pomona First Baptist), 601
N. Garey Ave., Pomona.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be
made to the Bob Weatherton Scholarship
Award through Concrete Industry Management (email jackie.james@informa.
com for information) or to Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center Foundation,
1798 N. Garey Ave., Pomona, CA 91767.

CUCC celebrates 125th anniversary, offers pipe organ concert


Claremont United Church of Christ, the oldest continually operating church in Claremont, is celebrating its
125th anniversary after services on Sunday, October 30.
The congregation and guests will be treated to a cake and
punch reception on the Cree Memorial Plaza in front of
the church.
CUCC was founded in 1891 as Claremont Congregational Church. Many of the founders were connected to
Pomona College, which was established four years earlier by the Congregational Churches of Southern California. For the first 15 years, the congregation met on the
Pomona College campus.
The first church buildings were erected in 1908 and

Guild Hall, which is still in use today, opened in 1928.


The current sanctuary was dedicated in 1955, and the
Kingman Chapel in 1963.
The church is home to a number of pieces of art, including those by artists such as Millard Sheets, Albert
Stewart, Malcom Cameron, Sam Maloof, David Scott,
Phil Dike, Jean and Arthur Ames, Harrison McIntosh,
Paul Darrow, Douglas McClellan, Betty Davenport
Ford, Peter Scott, Bess Reid and Ottavio Mastrovito.
CUCC will also host a Glatter-Gotz pipe organ concert on Monday, October 31 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Costumes are welcome by both children and adults. Treats
will be provided. CUCC is at 233 W. Harrison Ave.

OBITUARIES

True lady, beloved wife, mother and grandmother


Marjorie Malooly, or Nanny as her
family called her, died peacefully on October 10, 2016. She was 91.
She was born December 17, 1924 in
Chicago, Illinois to Michael Francis and
Clara Jane Storen. Mrs. Malooly was
generous in her love and her gifts to charities, her church and her family and
friends. She was universally revered for
her warm and giving spirit.
Mrs. Maloolys family was paramount
to her and she will be greatly missed. Besides her devotion to her family, she was
a devout Catholic. She spent many years
in service to her community through her
faith.
No writing of Nannys history would
be complete without a joyful nod to her

enjoyment of playing cards. Throughout


her years she gathered with family and
friends, at times even six days per week,
to practice her hobby and usually win. At
the age of 82, with minimal vision, she
played her last poker game and beat the
table!
Nanny was predeceased by her sisters,
Noreen Gillotte and Dorothy Hutchinson, and by her dear husband Thomas
James Malooly.
She leaves behind her three children,
Thomas Michael Malooly (Mary Beth),
Marjorie Kathleen Hanna (Joseph) and
Michael Francis Malooly (Jan). She will
also be missed by nine grandchildren,
Thomas, Mary Claire, Meghan, Joseph,
Kathleen, Adam, Shannon, Chelsea and

Scarlett, and by six great-grandchildren,


Jason, Joseph, John, Connor, Lola and
Evie.
Finally, Mrs. Malooly and her first
cousin Kevin Storan of Lisduff, County
Limerick shared a close relationship
throughout the years. He and his wife
Christina Storan travelled to America to
visit with Nanny six times in her last
years. The Storans held a mass in her
honor on October 19 in Kilfinny Parish,
where she worshipped when in Ireland.
A memorial service for Mrs. Malooly
was celebrated on October 14 in Claremont, and a Catholic mass and burial
service were held on October 15 at
Queen of Heaven Cemetery.

Charles Richard Mitchell


Pastor, counselor, distinguished veteran
Charles Richard Dick Mitchell died
on Friday, October 14, 2016. He was 90.
He was born on July 24, 1926 to
Charles Louis Mitchell and Nora Helen
Mitchell in Richmond, California.
Mr. Mitchell began his distinguished
military career in 1944 as a private in the
US Army. He was a combat infantry
paratrooper with the 11th Airborne Division during World War II.
After the war he returned to the states
and attended college, receiving a bachelors degree from the University of California, Berkeley and both a bachelors
degree and a Master of Divinity from
San Francisco Theological Seminary. He
then completed a seven-year post-graduate program with a triple doctorate in
theology, sociology and psychology. He
became an ordained Presbyterian minister in 1955 and was associate pastor at
Westminster Presbyterian Church in Ontario until 2011.
He returned to military service as a
chaplain for the US Air Force. He con-

tinued 30 years in the US Air Force reserves and retired a colonel in 1986.
Throughout his years of service, he received more than 30 military awards and
decorations including the Philippine Lib-

eration Medal, Combat Infantry Badge,


Distinguished Unit Badge, Legion of
Merit and the Bronze Star Medal.
Mr. Mitchell was in private practice as
a marriage and family counselor for 44
years until he retired in 2016. From 1978
to 1993, he was executive director of
West End Family Counseling in Ontario.
He is survived by his wife, Claudette,
four daughters, Ann Martin, Jane
Mitchell, Tracie Cornelison and Michelle
Menes, eight grandchildren and eight
great-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held on
Saturday, October 29 at 1:30 p.m. at
Westminster Presbyterian Church, 720
N. Sultana Ave., Ontario.
Interment will be part of a military
ceremony on Wednesday, November 2 at
2:15 p.m. at Riverside National Cemetery, 22495 Van Buren Blvd., Riverside.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be
made to the Disabled American Veterans.

Thompson
Glenn Vernon Thompson, a longtime
US history teacher at El Roble Intermediate School, died on October 18, 2016.
He was 87.
A celebration of his life will be held

life will be featured in a future edition

Dear Editor:
The Little Red White and Blue Hen
cried:
Who will help our world village work
better?
The Sleeping Dog barked, How?
How? How?
The Brown Cow mooed, How now?
The Fat Cat meowed, Not me-anyow!
The Black Horse snorted, Nay, nay!
The Undecided Crows cried, Cawnt,

The Elephant trumpeted, If not only I,

Yet the Little Red White and Blue Hen
looked at the broken glass ceiling and
smiled:
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can,
But better, together, we can!
And, do you know what? They listened!
And joined in as the Little Piggies cried,
We, we, we! all the way home.

Pentagon should forgive


National Guard debt
Dear Editor:
The Democratic Club of Claremont
condemns the attempt by the Pentagon
to claw back the money given as signing bonuses to members of the California National Guard. If the money was
given mistakenly, it was through no
fault of the individual members of the
Guard and was the sole responsibility
of the officials who authorized it.
Yet the attempt to have the money returned inflicts pain only upon the innocent. Therefore, the Pentagon must
drop the attempt to recover the money.

Vista del Valle principal sets


the record straight
Dear Editor:
I am a Claremont resident and a parent of two children who attended Vista
del Valle Elementary School. I graduated from Claremont High School and
am also the current principal of Vista del
Valle Elementary School.
As an educator and homeowner, I
would like to share another point of
view and respond to your article Its
time to right-size our school district by
Jay Pocock.
Mr. Pocock infers that Mountain
View, Oakmont and Vista del Valle are
inferior schools when he states that they
are low performing. However, each of
these schools has been recognized by the
Campaign for Business and Education
Excellence as an Honor Roll school.
On behalf of my staff and, more importantly, Vista students, I must point out
that Vista del Valle is not a low performing school. In addition to being an
Honor Roll School and Title I Achievement Award School, the 2016 CAASPP
results show that 11 percent more of our
students met or exceeded standards in
English language arts than students did
statewide and in mathematics, 4 percent
more of our students met or exceeded

READERS COMMENTS

standards statewide.
In fact, test scores have steadily increased at the same time interdistrict
(IDT) transfers increased, and Vista del
Valle students performed comparable to
the schools that Mr. Pocock listed with
fewer IDT transfer students.
The community also needs to know
that the CUSD Board of Education, district administration and I take great pride
in the hard work our teachers do to support children. Vista teachers place a
great deal of pressure upon themselves
because of their commitment to our students.
As a principal and parent in the community, I feel it is important that the
Claremont residents recognize each of
our elementary schools has a unique and
different learning community. I dont
want your readers to be misled into believing that transfer students weaken
these communities when, in fact, they
allow us to have more choice in selecting an elementary school that matches
our values and interests.
For example, Vistas multicultural
community focus was one of the reasons
my wife and I requested that our children attend the school. The elimination
of children on transfer would reduce the
ability for Claremont residents to have a
choice in selecting an elementary school
for their children.
Being able to add in some transfer
students to fill a class is fiscally responsible and helps us preserve our school
programs to meet the needs and interests
of Claremont residents. In many situations, these students are grandchildren or
relatives of Claremont residents and
people that work in the Claremont community.
Most of the families that attend on an
IDT take an active role in our school and
often become some of the most active
parent volunteers. Children that attend
CUSD on a transfer are not the reason
we need a bond to maintain our schools.
I am disappointed that a bond is a requirement to keep up on the basic needs
of our schools, because this creates inequities throughout the state. However,
California voters came up with this
funding process, therefore, it is critical
that we do not let Claremont fall into the
have-nots group.
Measure G ensures that our children
have access to a quality and safe learning environment. I consider roofs, air
conditioning, upgraded wiring and items
like working lockers as basic needs. I
also support Measure G because quality
school facilities and instructional programs with the best teachers add value
to the community and, as a result, increase home values in Claremont where
I live.
After being an administrator for 15
years, I can say that Vista has a faculty
that is always looking for ways to improve their practice and they would be
highly sought-after in neighboring
school districts. Therefore, it is important to have good working conditions for
our staff so we are able to continue attracting and retaining teachers of this
caliber.

Mr. Pocock has every right to not support Measure G. However, I am disappointed that he paints Vista del Valle as a
low performing school when, in fact, it
is a very high-performing school. I am
even more disappointed that he frames
his argument in a manner that infers that
the children are low-performing.
Vista del Valle is filled with hard
working, high-quality staff members and
wonderful children.

A real solution or a real mess?


Dear Editor:
Can you imagine a woman, shut away
on death row, in one cell with two
guards, while her boyfriend is out in the
general population of prisoners?
He told her to stay put" in the car or
hed kill her. Instead, he robbed and
killed the storekeeper. She was sent to
death row. He had a different court and
judge and was given a lighter sentence.
I have visited death row for the past
10 years and am convinced that its time
to replace our failed, unfair death
penalty. Its filled with the poor, the
black and Hispanics.
Prop 62 is the real solution. Life without the possibility of parole cuts out the
costly appeals that re-open grief for victims families. It requires inmates to
work and pay them restitution.
Many have been wrongfully committed and later proven innocent. Think!
Prop 62 can guarantee to never execute
another innocent person. And, it will
save our state $ 150 million a year. Say
yes to Prop 62.
Lets not be deceived by the promise
of Prop 66 to reform the death penalty.
Instead, they will move appeals from
State Supreme Court to local County
Courts leaving no room for other Criminal and Civil cases. The plan is to absorb
all 747 death row inmates into these
county facilities and budgets.
It rushes our Constitutional process
and risks executing innocent persons.
Also, theyll use unqualified and inexperienced attorneys that have to be paid by
local counties. What a mess! And if you
read the fine print, they will also be allowed to hide the drugs they use to execute persons. We must say no to Prop 66.

Measure A
Dear Editor:
Measure A is on the General Election
Ballot. November 8 is your only opportunity for input. Measure A is a tax on
improved private parcels throughout LA
County. The tax thwarts Proposition 13
because it is not based on assessed value
or length of home ownership. It is based
on the square feet of our homes and
rental properties.
It will be collected through your property tax bill. It has no expiration date;
your tax bill each year is the only notice
required; and the board alone decides
which cities areas receive the money
generated by the tax and the issuing of
bonds. The rate can be raised each year

Measure A will benefit the


Wilderness Park
Dear Editor:
We strongly urge you to vote for LA
County Measure A on the November 8
ballot. It will protect clean water resources, upgrade urban parks and
beaches, and preserve natural areas for
wilderness parks in our hillsides.
The cost is minimal: $22.50 per year
for a home of 1500 square feet (1.5
cents per square foot). To assure that
funds are wisely spent, the measure
provides for citizen oversight and independent audits.
Why is this measure on the ballot
now?
It replaces funding from two propositions county voters passed in the 1990s
that support parks, rivers and natural
areas until 2019. Measure A is designed
to extend the funding for these efforts
for the next 30 years.
How may Claremonters benefit from
it?
It could provide hundreds of thousands of dollars over the next 30 years
to upgrade Claremonts parks.
It could help us develop and maintain trails and facilities in the Wilderness Park.
It could help us preserve much more
open space from development and expand our Wilderness Park by funding
the purchase of small, private lots in
our foothills that may be for sale in the
future. Claremont has more than 10
such parcels. Since state funds are often
inaccessible for small lots, the main
funding sources are the county and the
city. Measure A would help us add
them to the Wilderness Park while sharing the costs with LA County.
It could supply local funds to leverage for large state and federal grants.
It could extend the wilderness corridor along the San Gabriel foothills by
funding the purchase of natural areas in
neighboring communities. Such projects may relieve congestion on our
Loop trail and would provide additional
recreational opportunities to Claremonters. Please join us in voting for Measure A.

District, students collaborate to raise money for Our Town

he latest Claremont High School


production tells you a lot about our
town. Its the kind of place where
teachers, administrators and school board
memberseven the superintendent of
schoolsare willing to join teen actors on
stage for a good cause.

The result, a moving production of Thornton


Wilders Pulitzer Prize-winning 1938 play Our Town,
will be performed Friday and Saturday, November 4
and 5, in CHS Fruechte Theatre.
Tickets are $20 and $50 for premium seating, with
proceeds going to local programs benefiting students
including Claremont After-School Programs (CLASP),
ArtStart, Sustainable Claremonts school garden efforts
and the Claremont Faculty Associations Epic Win program.
For those unfamiliar with the production, its a playwithin-a-play, set at the turn of the 20th century. The
main character is the Stage Manager, who serves as narrator as he immerses the audience in the everyday life
of a fictional American small town called Grovers Corners.
In a case of typecasting, the role is played by CHS social sciences teacher Tony Webner. Mr. Webner is gregarious, has a background in theater and serves as MC
for events like the theater departments annual FOOT
Auction.
CHS English teacher and speech and debate coach
Dave Chamberlain not only plays the role of Dr. Gibbs.
The production is his brainchild.
Last winter, he approached me with the idea of performing Our Town and raising money for some organizations in town, CHS Theater Director Krista
Elhai said. It was kind of funny. The first thing he said
is, Now dont say no. Just listen to what I have to tell
you.
The play selection was appropriate, given CHS sophomores were assigned to read the play last year. Ms.
Elhai thought Mr. Chamberlains idea was great, it was
just a matter of finding time for the effort.
Its very challenging, squeezing in all of these adult
schedules, she said.
Dave Nemer, a school board member who plays the
role of town undertaker Joe Stoddard, agreed. Still, he
says taking part in the production has been eye-opening.
Its been partly terrifying for any of us who have
never done this before, he said. Its kind of a late age
to be starting a career, even a hobby, as an actor. But
its been fascinating to see how the Claremont High
School Theater Department actually brings a production from nothing to what they ultimately do on stage.

Tony Webner,
plays the Stage
Manager, who narrates the action in
the play Our Town
currently in rehearsal at CHS.
The play will be
presented on November 4 and 5 at
Claremont High
School.

CUSD Board of Education Member Dave Nemer, CHS Principal Brett OConnor and Superintendent Jim Elsasser prepare for their upcoming roles in the Claremont High School production of Our Town.

The Basics
WHAT: Our Town
WHEN: Friday, November 4; Saturday, November 5
WHERE: Fruechte Theater, Claremont High School
COST: $20 regular, $50 premium.
INFO: chstheatre.cusd.claremont.edu

As Our Town dress rehearsals approach, Ms. Elhai


is also in the thick of directing a benefit, to be held in
Los Angeles, for a national theater organization. The
day after the benefit, the CHS Theatre Department will
hold its annual FOOT Auction, with students performing selections from the musical Newsies.
The auction will be held Tuesday and Wednesday,
November 15 and 15, at the Candlelight Pavilion. Tickets for the show, which starts at 7 p.m. each night, are
$7 presale and $8 at the door. Coffee and dessert will be
served.
First, though, comes Our Town, a production thats
a completely new experience for CHS Principal Brett
OConnor. The administrator has a small but significant

role as Sam Craig, a former Grovers Corners resident


who returns to attend a cousins funeral.
Its uncomfortable, because Im really the student
and the students are the teachers, he said. Thats a different role than we normally have here on campus, but
its a good one. I want my students to be lifelong learners, and this is an example of me having to be a lifelong learner.
Hes learned theres a tremendous amount of behindthe-scenes work that goes into a show, from costume
design to orchestrating audio and lighting to construction.
We even had an articulation coach come in and
work with us, he marveled. We learned to speak a little more like they speak on the east coast, like Fahma
McCahty instead of Farmer McCarty.
CUSD Superintendent Jim Elsasser will also showcase his thespian skills in a bit part as one of the people
at the cemetery. Other small parts are played by school
board members Beth Bingham, Hillary La Conte and
Steven Llanusa. Faculty members making their CHS
Theater debut include El Roble English teacher Jenny
McGourty Riggs as Mrs. Gibbs, CHS English teacher
Allison Evans as Mrs. Webb, CHS English teacher
Maria Zavala as Mrs. Soames and CHS science teacher
Ryan Pettibone as Simon Stimpson.
Actor and comedian W.C. Fields famously declared
that his policy was to never work with animals or children, because, through sheer cuteness, they upstage
even the most seasoned actor.
This opinion is borne out in Our Town, as many of
the student actorsmost notably Carly Sanden and
Riley Polanski as Emily Webb and George Gibbs
steal the show. Over the course of the production, the
pair goes from high school sweethearts to nervous bride
and groom to bereaved spouses.
Its an effective and affecting performance that underscores the theme of the play. Life, with its beauty
and affections as well as its travails, is short. We may as
well take time to enjoy it, and to really look at one another.
If youre ready to look at district luminaries and
staffers acting side-by-side with high school thespians,
you buy Our Town tickets at the door. Presale, though,
is strongly recommended. For more information, visit
chstheatre.cusd.claremont.edu or call the Claremont
High School Theatre at (909) 624-9053 ext. 30463.

When it comes to black widows...


watch out for the female spiders
Most people get the creeps when they spot a black widow spider,
particularly a female spider with that telltale hourglass shapebright
red against their solid black bodiesscreaming look out!
Theres good reason for that fear, because the
female black widow is said to be the most venomous spider in North America. The venom
of the black widow spider is 15
times as toxic as the venom of
the prairie rattlesnake, according to an
article on DesertUSA.com.
Male black widow spiders are half the size of the
females, who are about 1.5 inches long when the legs are spread.
They are harmless and so are black widow juveniles or spiderlings
(what a word!), which are white or yellowish white.
Fortunately, black widow spiders usually dont inject any venom
when they bite. No one has died of a black widow spider bite in more
than 10 years.
If a bite does occur, wash the wound with soap and water to keep
way infection. Black widow bites are more dangerous for young children. If muscle cramps develop, experts suggest you take the victim
to the hospital, just to be careful.
The female black widow spider may pose a relatively small risk to
humans, but to someone else they can be positively lethal. On occasion, the female black widow will kill and eat the male after mating.
Some goodbye!

Woof! I mean hi.


My name is Cody and Im a Siberian Husky puppy who
lives with COURIER reporter Sarah Torribio and her family. I was 11 weeks old when I came to live with her. Now
Im much older: 13 weeks!
Im just a little guy now, but Ill get to be as big as 60
pounds when Im older. My breed is known for its good
looks and, with my white-and-gray coat and black eyeliner
around my blue eyes, Im no exception. I look like a wolf.
I also act a little like one, particularly now that Im a puppy. I like to chew on toys and sometimes get carried away
nipping at people with my sharp teeth and jumping on them.
My household includes a boy, Alex, whos nearly 8, and
a girl, Savannah, whos almost 3. Savannah goes back and
forth between crying when Im too rough and being rough
with me. People are weird.
Im supposed to keep away from parks until Im old
enough to risk mixing with dogs that havent been vaccinated. Puppies can get a virus called parvo, which, even
though it starts with the same sound as my favorite treat,
Pup-peroni, is something I want to stay away from.

Last weekend, though, I played with one dog, Charlie,


who belongs to Sarahs sister Andrea. I was so tired afterwards I lay down for a couple hours, with only my ears moving. Savannah thought that was funny.
In another couple weeks, I can get out and about for walks.
My owners are even planning to take me to the Claremont
Pooch Park to see if I can make friends. In the meantime,
Im getting used to my new family and theyre getting used
to me.
I think they like the way I listen when they tell me to sit.
You know why? They call me a good boy and give me a
little piece of, you guessed it, Pup-peroni. Ow-wooooo!

Claremont goalkeeper Kellan Grant gets a key save on Wednesday during the Packs 10-5 defeat of Diamond Bar in Claremont. Claremont has one last home
game against Glendora next Tuesday before the start of the CIF tournament. The Pack lost to top-ranked Ayala the day before and will end the regular season
second in the Palomares League.

CHS water polo


team readies for
league, CIF play

laremont High School water polo


easily defeated Diamond Bar
Wednesday, but remains in second
place in Palomares League standings after
falling to Ayala on Tuesday.
I think yesterdays game was draining both emotionally and physically, Claremont coach Kristin Rodriguez said
SPORTING
about the loss to Ayala. It was
LIFE
competitive the whole way, back
and forth the whole time. We had some unfortunate
calls against us and got beat up pretty bad in front of
the cage. Thats a bummer, because we then would be
a little bit tired, and recovering from that was tough.
The Bulldogs handed the Pack their only two
league defeats this year and are a very athletic team.
They will be a tough foe when the CIF tournament
begins November 8. Claremont has a record of 11-8,
4-2 in league play.
The game had just started when the Pack scored
three times in less than a minute, two from junior Ian

Waasdorp and one from junior Jack Kruze.


But if it seemed like Claremont would cruise to an
easy victory, that notion was soon dismissed as Diamond Bar found their legs and started to increase their
defense, followed up by a solid goal from the Brahmas Diego Hammond during an exclusion.
Penalties were an issue for the Pack all afternoon
with several exclusions, including two for Kruze.
However, Claremont was just too good for Diamond Bar and never trailed on their way to the 10-5
win. Waasdorp and Snow ended up with hat tricks
three goals eachand were supported by another
solid performance from goalkeeper Kellan Grant.
We usually have a day of practice between games
so our starters werent as crisp. We relied more on the
guys who dont start, which left them kind of shell
shocked, which is good for them, Coach Rodriguez
said.
The Pack has a tournament this weekend and the

HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP

GIRLS VOLLEYBALL
Claremont has claimed the Palomares
League title, winning all but one league
game, capped with a spectacular 3-2
marathon victory over Glendora last
Thursday in Claremont.
The Pack lost the first set 20-25 and
only barely took the second at 26-24 and
the third, 25-21, only to see Glendora tie
it up, 20-25. However, Claremont was
able to secure the win with the 15-12
tiebreaker.
[It was] probably one of our best
games of the season, said Coach Daniel
Reighter.
Simone Bliss played a key role with
her 18 kills and 22 digs followed by
Emilee Rohrer with 17 kills. Also having
a good night were Bel Grabowski with
25 digs, Merisa Marquez with 29 assists
and Kylie Robinson with 27 assists.
The Pack had an easier time in their
league match last Tuesday defeating Diamond Bar 3-0 at home. The Pack also

final league game Tuesday at home against Glendora,


which is also senior night.
Claremont has seven games over the weekend and
coach Rodriguez likes to play this tournament precisely because it previews CIF play. A lot of our division teams are in this tournament, so that give you
one last look at them, she said.
CHS goes into CIF ranked ninth in Southern Section Division 3 and number two in the Palomares
League, which is a bit of a switch from the past two
years during which they have enjoyed a top ranking.
However, this could be a positive change.
They re-organized all of the divisions the way that
they set it up this year, I think even the wild card
games are going to be tough. Everybody is on equal
turf now our division across the board is pretty competitive, said Coach Rodriguez.

defeated Ayala, winning in straight sets


25-21, 25-21 and 25-19. Bliss had nine
kills and 20 digs, Rohrer had 10 kills and
Marquez had 17 assists.

CROSS COUNTRY
Both Claremont High School and The
Webb Schools participated in the Mt. Sac
Invitational over the weekend. The competition is the biggest local race of the
year outside of CIF. With nearly every
school in the Southern Section participating, and many from around the state,
this is an important race for the teams as
they attempt to get seeded for CIF prelims.
The CHS boys took second place behind Great Oak in the Division 1 and 2
Sweepstakes race, with Ryan Renken
earning a second place finish with a time
of 15:07. Renken was just four seconds
shy of setting a school record on the
course and the boys team time of 78:20
was the fifth fastest record for the Pack.
The girls took third in their Division 1
and 2 Sweepstakes race behind Great

Oak and Palos Verdes. Annie Boos set a


new school record on the course at
17:53. Behind her was a very fast sophomore, Sydney Hwang, who would have
set a school record at 18:03 if Boos had
not been in the race.
Both the boys and girls teams clocked
faster times than all other Division 2
teams in the race.
Claremont boys and girls varsity
teams are now ranked first in CIF Southern Section Division 2 and are likely to
also be at the top of the state rankings
when they are announced later in the
week, according to coach Bill Reeves.
The Pack will be in action again on
Saturday for the Palomares League Finals beginning at 8:00 am at Whittier
Narrows Park.

FOOTBALL
Claremont High School lost Fridays
away game against Ayala 38-3 and now
has a 1-2 record in league, 2-6 overall,
good enough for third place. This Fridays home game may go better for the

Pack as they host last place Diamond Bar


at 7 p.m. The final game of the regular
season will be next Friday against second place Glendora at Citrus College.

WEBB BOYS WATER POLO


Webb varsity water polo captured the
Academy league championship Tuesday
with a 9-8 win at Sage Hill. The Gauls
held off a late rally for the win. Three
boys, Will Donahue, Mitchell Fargo and
Phil Kraus scored three times, and goalkeeper Max Sapozkhov had six saves.
Webb, 8-14, hosts Chino Friday at
3:15 pm.

WEBB GIRLS VOLLEYBALL


Vivian Webb lost its senior night season finale to Upland Christian 3-1.
Scores for the sets were: 25-15, 17-25,
14-25, 25-19 on Tuesday in Claremont.
The Gauls finished their regular season 8-14, 3rd in San Joaquin League, and
await playoff seeding.

If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you
should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien,
not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a
trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free
and clear ownership of the property. You should also be
aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior
lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are
or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to
the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear
title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate
the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that
may exist on this property by contacting the county
recorders office or a title insurance company, either of
which may charge you a fee for this information. If you
consult either of these resources, you should be aware
that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage
or deed of trust on this property. NOTICE OF
TRUSTEE'S SALE Note: Because the Beneficiary reserves the right to bid less than the total debt owed, it is
possible that at the time of the sale the opening bid may
be less than the total debt NOTICE TO PROPERTY
OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may
be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of
the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not

are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will
be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing
the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically
entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property.
You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned
off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at
the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off
all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you
can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged
to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding
liens that may exist on this property by contacting the
county recorders office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information.
If you consult either of these resources, you should be
aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on this property. NOTICE OF

the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. 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

are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will
be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing
the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically
entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property.
You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned
off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at
the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off
all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you
can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged
to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting
the county recorders office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should
be aware that the same lender may hold more than one
mortgage or deed of trust on this property. NOTICE OF
TRUSTEE'S SALE Note: Because the Beneficiary reserves the right to bid less than the total debt owed, it is
possible that at the time of the sale the opening bid may
be less than the total debt NOTICE TO PROPERTY
OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may
be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of
