Metrolink noise abatement

Dear Editor:
The comments of Jan Raithel and Stuart Kerridge, published in the April 1
COURIER, highlighted a serious quality
of life issue affecting many Claremont
residents: warning horns from freight
and passenger trains.
No less than 40 Metrolink trains pass
through Claremont every weekday, with
horns blaring at every crossing. As was
reported in the commentary, the Federal
Railroad Administration allows the creation of quiet zones. With certain improvements to public crossings, trains
passing through the zone are not required to sound their warning horns.
This is nothing new. The rules for establishing quiet zones have been in place
for over a decade and cities across the
country have established quiet zones.
The Claremont City Council should
seriously consider this improvement for
the crossings that affect the citizens of
our city.

The mayor got it right


[Editors note: The following letter relates
to the Tuesday, April 12 city council meeting regarding the location of the proposed
Pomona College Art Museum. It was sent
to Mayor Sam Pedroza, with a copy forwarded for publication. KD]
Dear Mayor Pedroza:
I am in complete support of your action last night.
You absolutely did the right thing.
Your clarification of the process, and
your vote, allow this process to continue
as it should. The purpose of planning
and land-use, and typically with govern-

ment in general, is to mitigate and amalgamate the varying legitimate and often
contradictory needs and desires of varying members of our community. This
process of mitigation and amalgamation
must reflect the consensus of the entire
community.
Clearly this community is split over
the issue of the location of the Pomona
College Art Museum, and therefore this
process should continue until some consensus is achieved. This consensus has
not yet been achieved. Your actions have
allowed this process of consensus building to continue.
The process of forging and cobbling
together an acceptable course of action
should continue until a consensus is
achieved, an acceptable compromise is
reached, or it becomes clear that a mutually acceptable conclusion is not possible.
If that last possibility becomes obviously the case, then a hands up or down
vote may be necessary, but often the best
course is no change at all. After all, the
current situation has been acceptable for
a long time.
I was equally impressed by the other
councilmembers, as well as city staff.
All four of the other councilmen expressed themselves respectfully and articulately. As staff presented
information, the issues became more focused as the evening progressed. This is
very important as this issue is very divisive.
In closing, I want to reiterate that I
firmly support Mayor Pedrozas action
last night.

Ad hoc committee wants the police station where it is

he Police Facility Ad Hoc Committee made important strides toward solidifying a future police
station in Claremont.

The committee agreed to look into building the future station at the current location at 570 W. Bonita
Ave. and zeroed in on a possible $25 million price tag
for the facility during Wednesday nights meeting at
the Hughes Center.
The staff report presented to the committee noted
that it may be possible for a new police station to be
built at-grade, or at street-level, on the site of the current police station. Committee chair Mark Sterba
agreed with the findings, using an airplane analogy to
illustrate making the use of the limited space available.
One thing I know about the bathroom that goes in
the airplane is the size, the envelope it goes into, is always the same, Mr. Sterba said. The airplane does
not get bigger just because we want to make the bathroom [bigger]. We have to force it into the location.
Committee member Betty Crocker agreed with the
location plan, stating that it is the communitys preferred location.
We need to be respectful of the current location
and what the community is asking us, she said, noting that Arcadias police station was built at the old
stations site.
The citys presentation claimed that an architect
would need to be engaged. A structural engineer is already looking into the current building to see whether
it can be retrofitted, according to the citys presentation.
Committee member Sally Seven emphasized that
the decision to focus on the current site is not a decision to use the actual station itself, rather the land it
sits on, a notion that was confirmed by Mr. Sterba.
The motion to focus on building the station on the
current site was passed unanimously.
The impound lot was given more scrutiny as the
city presented more numbers as to the value of the lot.
Assistant City Manager Colin Tudor noted the city is
willing to reduce the size of the impound lot from 80
spaces to 25 spaces.
Despite the reduction in spaces, the city cautioned
that the impound lot is still needed. According to data
released by the city, a police station without a 25space impound lot would result in a hit to the general
fund to the amount of $161,904 based on current fiveyear occupancy trends and $257,221 if the impound
lot stays at 85 percent occupancy.
The numbers presented were mined from more
than 15 years worth of data, Mr. Tudor said.
Committee member Paul Wheeler noted that the lot

The Police Facility ad hoc committee, seen here at a previous meeting, has narrowed the possibilities for the
new police station. The committee would like to see the station stay at its current Bonita Avenue location with
a target cost of $25 million for construction.

is really expensive real estate to run a junkyard, and


presented the idea of a stackable impound lot, which
could save additional space. Claremont Police Captain Shelley Vander Veen countered that it would be
difficult for people to obtain their impounded cars in a
timely manner and Mr. Sterba mentioned the importance of easy access for tow trucks.
The committee was unanimously in favor of the
citys proposal.
The committee also heard about more financing
options from Claremont Finance Director Adam Pirrie, including general obligation (GO) bonds and a
possible sales tax. Mr. Pirrie presented GO bond scenarios for a $20 million station, a $30 million station
and a $40 million station with structured maturities,
meaning payments for smaller elements such as furniture and electronics over the course of 10 years.
A major issue voters had with Measure PS was the
possibility of paying a 40-year parcel tax on equipment that could be obsolete in a fraction of that time.
According to the data presented by the city, the annual debt service within the first 10 years on a $20
million GO bond would be $1.32 million, with an annual property owner cost of $31 per $100,000 in assessed value of their property. Under a $30 million
bond, the annual debt service would be $1.97 million
within the first 10 years, with a cost of $46 per
$100,000 in assessed value. Under a $40 million
bond, the annual debt service would be $2.61 million
over the first 10 years, with $61 in annual property

owner cost per $100,000.


The amount set aside for furniture ranged from $3
million to $6 million, which was presented as a ballpark estimate
A possible sales tax hike, which was how Montclair financied its $26 million station in 2009, was
also floated by the city. A quarter-cent increase could
net $610,000 for the city annually, while a half-cent
could generate $1.22 million for the city annually.
Mr. Pirrie warned that money yielded through sales
tax is beholden upon market conditions and told the
committee that any shortfall would be made up by the
general fund.
Mr. Pirrie also mentioned the upcoming November
ballot measure that proposes a half-cent sales tax increase in all LA County cities to fund the Metro Gold
Line extension. If that measure passes and the city decides on a half-cent sales tax increase, Claremonts
sales tax could top out at 10 percent, the highest in the
immediate region, according to city data.
A sales tax would only need to be approved by a
simple majority at the ballot box, as opposed to a
two-thirds majority with a GO bond.
The committee was split on going forward with either a $25 million or $30 million GO bond. Ms.
Seven was in favor of $30 million, citing the need to
leave enough room for any additional elements that
may be needed, which was seconded by committee
members Michael Shea and Frank Bedoya. CommitPOLICE STATION/continues on the next page

Claremont named the coolest city in the state

ts officialClaremont is Californias
coolest city, at least when it comes to
conserving energy.

The City of Trees won the statewide Cool California Challenge, Energy Upgrade California announced
on April 14. The city won in a landslide, handily beating second-place Long Beach by over 1 million
points.
The Cool California Challenge pitted cities against
each other to motivate residents to reduce their carbon
footprint. Residents were encouraged to sign up online
and track their energy usage, gaining points along the
way.
In all, 514 Claremonters signed up, garnering the
city a whopping 2,444,920 points.
On behalf of the residents of Claremont, I am

proud to accept the title of Coolest California City,


Mayor Sam Pedroza said in a statement. This honor
speaks volumes to the dedication and initiative that
Claremont residents showed throughout the Challenge
to reduce our citys greenhouse gas emissions. By
working to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions all
year, residents are continuing the hard work needed to
help California stay golden.
Sustainable Claremont, which spearheaded the
campaign, praised the hard work by residents that
went into the citys winning run.
Thank you to everyone who saved energy (and
money) and participated in our community effort to
promote a healthy environment, Sustainable Claremont Chair Steve Sabicer said in a release.
The city won $51,663 of the available $150,000
prize. The money will go toward sustainability projects.

Overall, 22 cities participated in the challenge,


which ran from October 1 to March 30.
As part of the challenge, then-Mayor Corey Calaycay taped a humorous video to motivate Claremonters
to save energy. The videoin which Mr. Calaycay
suggest residents shower with each other to reduce
water usagehas been watched more than 1,200
times.
The top three citiesClaremont, Long Beach and
Burlingamewill be honored at the Green California
Summit on April 21.
Sustainable Claremont will be celebrating the victory at their Earth Day celebration on April 23, which
will take place in the Village along Second Street from
10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Kingsley Tufts winner is unabashedly thankful for CGU poetry prize

oss Gay, whose third book of poetry is called Catalog of Unabashed


Gratitude, has one more item to add
to the list of things for which he is thankful.
Earlier this month, he was awarded the coveted Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award.

The honor is tendered each year by Claremont Graduate University to a poet who has done great work and is
expected to do much more. It just feels really lucky, Mr.
Gay, 41, said of the win. It feels lucky to have people
seeing and reading the work.
The prize carries more than prestige. It comes with a
$100,000 purse, making it the worlds largest monetary
prize for a single book of poetry.
At the April 7 ceremony held in Pomona Colleges
Rose Hills Theatre, award chair Lori Anne Ferrell shared
a line from an Inside Philanthropy article about the
Kingsley Tufts Award. Sometimes, when the stars infrequently and magically align, it actually pays to be a
poet, she quoted.
Mr. Gay, whose day job is teaching in Indian Universitys MFA program, called the financial remuneration
an incredible gift. Asked what he plans to do with the
prize money, his answer is practical and, given the current political debate, timely. I have student loans.
Educational debt didnt make Mr. Gays litany of all
things that are good in a world where life is fleeting and
love is imperfect. What he has written about in his book,
published by the University of Pittsburg Press, are those
moments and memories that are imbued with purpose and

Flying backwards for a moment


by Jan Wheatcroft

just received a treasured birthday


present from my younger son. He
transferred all my old Greek cassette
tapes that I could no longer play onto
DVDs and sent them to me.
I lived on the island of Samos in the 70s. This was
the music I listened to in the tavernas at the bouzouki
evenings when we danced and partied. These were the
songs that poured out of cars and trucks as they passed
through the villages. This was what I listened to on my
tape deck in my small house. I consider those years as
my years of passionate living. Everything I did seemed
to be with great highs and lows. And now, listening to
these wondrous tapes brings back the memories and
feelings in great waves.
During this time, I lived with my two sons in a
small, very old house that was originally built for the
Greek families who were thrown out of Turkey (visible
from our Samos harbor). We had one room that held
two cots for the boys, two tables and chairs for them to
work at, and room for them to build with their Legos
and play with their friends.
My boys went to the local Greek school. I taught
English, painted signs in English for the tourists who
were just beginning to come to Greece in greater numbers and did my tapestry weavings, which I sold to
many of those same tourists. The boys spoke great
Greek and I learned enough street Greek to be able to
communicate. Every afternoon, we did English lessons
and they worked on their extensive Greek homework.
Now we are getting close to the Easter celebration.
Greek or Orthodox Easter is often at a different time
than Catholic Easter. This year it is later. Listening to
this music, I can see the women whitewashing the
stone walls and sides of the houses so that the streets
almost glow with the clean whiteness.
In those days, most people gave up many of the regular foods for Lent and a lot of grains and beans were
eaten. Every family took part in the preparations at the
church and in the homes, cleaning and scrubbing
everything, arranging flowers and preparing for the

parading of Christ through the village.


Of course, the highlight was midnight when the
priest announced that Christ has risen. Bells rang and
boys threw the small bombs they had carefully made
onto the freshly whitewashed walls leaving their Easter
marks. Then came the eating, drinking, partying and
dancing as well as the roasting of the lamb or goat. Village celebration was really the best and many citydwellers returned to their home villages to celebrate
with family. These are some of the memories that began to return as I listened to my Greek music.
I find that I can still understand a lot of the words
and their meanings. The songs I loved then are mostly
about love, sadness and pathos and are sung by huskyvoiced women and silken-voiced men. They are romantic and I remember why I loved living there. I
loved living on an islanda piece of land totally surrounded by water and a bit isolated from the rest of the
world. To get off the island was a project. Our island
had an airport and one could fly back to Athens, but the
cost for the three of us was high. There were ferry
boats with many stops along the route and often very
rough seas, making the journey rather unpleasant.
However, a calm sailing could be relaxing and wonderful. Each island had its own personality, flora, fauna,
traditions, foods and recipes. I found that each island
held its natural prejudices of them versus us.
They are thieves, it was said of those from the
neighboring island Ikaria and we were told to watch
out for our possessions on the ferries. But there was
comfort in being swaddled in the protective world of
ones home island. We were known to the islanders of
our village and cared about. People shared everything

with usfood, stories, invitations and their time. I became familiar with the personality and the life that
awaited me each time I moved to visit or stay on different islands.
My greatest passion came from the music and the
dancing. Greeks put themselves totally into the activities they are involved in and their happiest times are
during the celebrations, feasting and dances. In the
days I lived on Samos, we would go up to the dance
taverna where there was a big, cement area surrounded
by tables. At one end was the stage where the bouzouki
(similar to a mandolin) players sat and played. A singer
would join the group and sing sultry songs.
Sometimes a dancer danced the sexy, gypsy-like
dances that made the men shout. Dances were paid for
by someone in a group and only the people from that
group were invited to join in. Many a fight would start
if an outsider tried to participate.
To add to the passion, people threw their plates, bottles and glasses as the emotion rose, and young boys
rushed out to sweep up the broken glass. But still the
dancing continued. I loved these dancesthe passion,
the emotionand often I just let go and swayed along
with my friends when it was our turn to dance. I can visualize that time so clearly as I listen to Marienella
singing about today and tomorrow in her husky
tones. This was a time to lose oneself to the music and
the movement.
Times have changed now and only cheap plaster of
paris plates are used, sold to those who have a desire to
break. For me, the spontaneous and passionate flinging
of a plate one has just eaten from is far more real and
exciting.
I have seven DVDs that I can listen to as I remember
those wonderful days of more freedom and passion
than I have ever felt, either before or after. The later
years when I returned to Greece each summer and
stayed on the islands of Skyros and Skopelos were
happy and wonderful times. However, there is nothing
like the first awakening of a life that is so different and
rich and becoming immersed in the total experience of
a different type of life.

Hows your sense of humor?

Yay for Mitzvah Day


Dear Editor:
On Sunday, April 3, a beautiful sunny
day greeted the volunteers of our 17th annual Mitzvah Day.
Everyone enjoyed a sumptuous breakfast hosted by our Sisterhood. Following
a blessing and song by Rabbi Kupetz, the
enthusiastic group left to make our community just a bit better. Those that serve
the nonprofits we visited, and the many
who are served by them, once again realized that Temple Beth Israel knows that
they are there and that we care about
them.
Thanks to Lee Kanes group, 500
pounds of rice, grains, pasta and beans
were packaged for clients of the Inland
Valley Hope Partners food pantry.
Uncommon Good Executive Director
Nancy Minte supervised Shapiros large
group of families with children at their

TBI garden. They planted paper pots with


milkweed and marigold seeds that were
harvested onsite. They learned how milkweed flowers provide food for the
Monarch butterflies that visit the garden,
and how the marigolds provide local
beauty and much-needed revenue once
cut and sold.
The Foothill Aids Project volunteers
joined Jack Schuster and strolled Claremonts Sunday Village Market, where
they greeted shoppers and distributed literature about FAPS upcoming April 28
fundraiser, Dining Out/Fight Aids. The
group shared information about FAP, its
programs and how folks might become
involved.
At TBI, a dozen workers stayed home
to do a detailed spring cleaning organized
by our TBI president, Marc Kramer. By
noon, much grease, dust and fingerprints
had vanished from our walls, kitchen,
sanctuary, foyer and social hall.
Foothill Family Shelter led by Andy
Weissman now boasts newly-painted
metal fences at one of their four court-

yards. Thirteen enthusiastic helpers were


joined by the agencys groundskeeper
and executive director, who worked
along with them sharing information
about the shelters vital work.
Once again, our own talented Don
Bloch visited the sites taking pictures of
this wonderful day.
In addition to all the hands-on help, 15
TBI members generously donated more
than $400. This will be given to Foothill
Family Shelter to go toward the $800
needed to complete painting fences at
their three additional courtyards.
Our annual Foothill Aids Project Food
Drive was a remarkable success. Mr.
Schuster delivered 20 bags of groceries to
the FAP office along with many boxes of
mac n cheese collected by our Beit Sefer students. Thanks so much to the seventh grade class that once again organized this important mitzvah.
Todah Roba to everyone who participated in Mitzvah Day, honoring TBIs
amazing day of service andJudaisms
cherished tradition of making the world
a better place.

To spray or not to spray?


by Susan Schenk

eing rooted to one spot has disadvantages, like not being able to
evade others that want to eat you
or crowd you out. But how much help
should we give our garden plants?
For a sustainable garden, we need to balance what
our plants need to survive with what we want them to
look like. This is likely to mean embracing diversity
in the lawn and enjoying some holes in leaves as indications of caterpillars that will become butterflies,
food for insect-eating birds, and construction materials for native leaf-cutter bees. But if aphids overrun
new rose growth, or your citrus gets whitefly or sooty
mold, should you spray? What if dandelions and plantains start to invade your lawn?
The first thing to keep in mind is that pesticides and
herbicides are almost all toxic to people too, can affect beneficial insects and desirable plants as well as
invaders, and can contaminate water. Its safer and
cheaper to avoid them whenever possible. So how can
you minimize the use of chemicals in your garden?
Lawns: Weeds are generally the problem in lawns,
but regular dousing with herbicides can be avoided if
you have healthy, thick turf, since that will make it
harder for weeds to grow.
First, choose a grass that will be happy with
your light conditions. If your lawn area becomes
more than a little shady, reduce the shade, replace
the lawn with a more tolerant variety or make a
flowerbed.
Next, watering your turf to a depth of about 6
once a week is usually enough. Less frequent,
deeper watering encourages roots to grow further
into the soil, reducing the loss to evaporation that
occurs with shallow watering. Step on the grass and
if it doesnt spring back in about a half hour, it prob-

Demystifying
SUSTAINABILITY
ably needs water.
Fertilizing in spring will help replace the nitrogen used for leaf growth, but doing this regularly
will encourage growth during dry times of year,
which means more watering.
Keep the lawn on the long side, two to three
inches; dont remove more than a quarter-inch of
the height at a time; use sharp blades; and let the
clippings sift down to the ground and compost
there. Rake out dead grass once a year.
When you see a weed, pull it out.
Annuals, perennial, shrubs: How can you reduce
your gardens pest load without using poisons?
Grow plants or varieties that are naturally resistant; for instance, some roses are not subject to
black spot or rust.
Be sure the plants have good growing conditions: my euonymus with afternoon sun is fine, but
the one with too much shade gets mildew.
Keep a sharp eye out for little invaders. Take a
tour around the garden every few days. Remove infested leaves and toss them in the trash; squash
aphids; wash off upper and lower surfaces of leaves
with a heavy spray of water; hand pick snails; put
sticky barriers on trunks to prevent ants from farming aphids and scales whose secretions lead to sooty
mold growth.
Include plants that provide food and housing for
beneficial predators like ladybugs, praying mantises, parasitic wasps and lacewings.
If youve tried to grow a plant and it keeps getting eaten or diseased no matter what, replace it

with one that is tougher.


Cover the ground with plants or mulch so that
weed seeds have trouble getting to the soil.
Pull weeds as soon as you see them and never
let them go to seed.
And if you do decide to resort to chemicals? No
matter what you use, be sure you follow directions
and check to see that it is safe for the plant you want
to treat (and not too bad for you!). Also, to avoid
killing bees, dont spray when they are out foraging
and dont treat the blooming plants they are visiting.
These pesticides are not too bad: (these all
smother the insects)
Insecticidal soap.
Horticultural oil (petroleum-based).
Neem or canola oil (plant-based).
But these should be avoided:
Pyrethroids such as permethrin (toxic to aquatic
organisms).
Organophosphates such as malathion (toxic to
many beneficials).
Carbaryl (kills bees, beneficial predators, and
earthworms).
Metaldehyde snail bait (toxic to other animals
such as dogs).
Neonicotinoids such as imidacloprid (move
throughout the plant into the flowers and kill pollinatorsask local nurseries to stop selling plants
grown using these common pesticides).
Enjoy the diversity and entertainment that a
(mostly) chemical-free garden provides! You can find

Claremonts 8th annual Earth


Day celebration
Get ready for Claremonts Earth Day celebration. The
educational, family-friendly street fair takes place Saturday, April 23 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. along Second Street
in the Claremont Village.
The event features green products and demonstrations,
a paper shredding recycling truck, a Tesla display, rescued
wolves, local schools and colleges exhibits, local and
sustainable food trucks, Copali dancers, acoustic music
and many kids activities. Ride your bicycle to the party
for free bicycle valet parking.
The theme for the celebration is Trees: Rooting for our
Community. Trees sustain our quality of life. They provide shade from sun, shelter from wind, and harvest rain.
They assimilate carbon dioxide, release oxygen and filter air. They provide habitat for birds and a voice for the
wind. Communicate with your trees. What are they telling
you? Speak up for trees, and the silent majority of people who benefit from our urban forest every day.
Earth Day was founded in 1970 by Senator Gaylord
Nelson to increase environmental education in response
to pollution. It has grown into a global time of teaching
and acting to support the earth. In Claremont, the Earth
Day celebration is hosted by the city of Claremont and
Sustainable Claremont, run by volunteers and is sponsored by partners such as the Claremont Village Marketing Group and IKEA. Join Sustainable Claremont to engage in local environmental activity and have fun. See
you there.

OBITUARIES

Teacher, loving matriarch


Patricia Rohrs, a longtime Claremont resident, died
on March 17, 2016 after a short illness. She was 96.
She was born on September 11, 1919 in Colorado
Springs, Colorado to Freda Muly and Everette Peterson. She moved to Los Angeles when she was in high
school and graduated with a degree in education from
UCLA. She later earned a Master of Education from
Claremont Graduate School.
She moved to Ontario to begin her teaching career,
where she met her husband Fred Rohrs, a fellow
teacher. They moved to Claremont with their three
children in 1952. Mrs. Rohrs taught at Oakmont
School for two years and then moved to Sycamore
School, where she taught until 1981 when she retired.
She loved being a teacher and continued to substitute
teach, home teach and volunteer in classrooms. Over
the years, she enjoyed many visits and letters from
former students and their families.
Mrs. Rohrs was an avid gardener and an animal
lover. When her children were growing up, she kept a
menagerie of pets, including dogs, cats, goats, chickens, many rabbits and even a myna bird. Her daughter

Pamela, who attended Sycamore while her mother


taught at the school, recalls her mom bringing the
myna bird, the goat and other animals to school to
students delight.
Patricia was creative and excelled at artistic pursuits like flower arranging and painting, taking
classes in genres like Chinese brush painting and watercolor to hone her skills. She was also prolific at
knitting and crocheting, making many blankets for

her grandchildren and scarves for friends. As she got


older and her eyesight failed, Mrs. Rohrs was no
longer able to undertake larger pieces. Still, she would
make posies, crocheting little flowers she presented
as gifts to friends. She attended United Church of
Christ in Claremont and was a doting grandmother
and great-grandmother. Her life was all about doing
things for other people, her loved ones shared.
Family wishes to extend their deep gratitude to the
wonderful and caring staff at the Claremont Manor
Assisted Living (The Lodge) as well as to staff at the
Manor Care Center for all they did for Patricia during
her recent illness.
She was predeceased by her husband, Fred Rohrs,
and by her son, Fred Jr. She is survived by her daughters Susan Lightfoot and Pamela Kohler; her grandsons Charles Bentley and Christopher Kohler; and by
two great-grandchildren, Korbin and Carter Kohler.
No services were held, per her request. In lieu of
flowers, donations may be made to the charity of your
choice.

perfect for a personal best

Seventeen minutes and 26 seconds
later, four Claremont boyssenior Sergio Espinoza, junior Owen Bishop, senior Tab Backman and junior Ryan
Renkencrossed the finish line in first
place, shattering the Claremont High
School record by 24 seconds and setting the fourth fastest time nationwide
for 2016.
Something was definitely in the air
during this years Mt. SAC Relays,
which were held at Cerritos College
due to extensive remodeling of the athletic field at Mt. SAC.
On Friday, junior Annie Boos continued her dominance with a new school
record of 4:56:86 in the mile, which
was fast enough for fourth place in the
prestigious Brooks Invitational competition. She is the first female athlete in
CHS history to break the five-minute

Claremont junior Ryan Renken, senior Tab Backman, junior Owen Bishop and senior Sergio Espinoza set a school record in the 4 x 1600 relay during the Mt SAC Relays on Saturday. Their time of 17:26, which averages to 4:21 per runner, is the
fourth fastest time nationwide this year and earned them a gold medal in the event.

longer than the 1600-meter race.
Renken also broke a school record in
the mile with a time of 4:15:97.
Considered one of the premier meets
in the United States, the relays have divisions for high school and collegiate
athletes, which also includes endorsed
and international teams.
It was a pretty exciting Saturday,

Leahy was out four months with a
back injury partly brought on by not
stretching properly. Since then he has
been gaining strength and getting back

He has a strong forehand with lots of

him apart. When I am down a few

That was quite a relief actually,
said Leahy on Tuesday as the Pack took

Tennis is having one amazing season
and they piled on the victories in the last
week beating Bonita, 17-1, last Thursday; Diamond Bar, 10-8, on Monday;

We played some great singles,
Christian [Settles] went 3-0, which he
has not done yet this year, doubles

Kathy Settles following the Bonita

While waiting for the 800-meter race


to begin on Tuesday, Boos spoke
briefly about her big weekend.
I was seeded to get last place so I
was nervous about that, but when I
started I told myself to keep going and I
ended up getting fourth, said Boos.
Im doing more mileage than last
year, so I think it [the record] had to do
with fitness as well as mental strength,
she said. Im hoping to get to the state
championships this year for the mile.
The boys success in the 4 x 1600
may have been unexpected even for the
runners themselves. The last time we
did it as a group we ran a 17:59 so to
run a 17:26 was a bit of a surprise,
said Renken on Tuesday.
Asked about what made the difference, the boys echoed the remarks of
Coach Reeves.
Confidence and environment were
the key factors according to Renken. It
was eight at night and you know it will
be a fast race. You have people right behind that can get you if you are not
staying focused. So we were all ready
to run faster, he said.
There is the Arcadia [meet] and then
the next week is Mt. SAC and that is
what you are training for until CIF,
Renken said.
The Pack has a couple more league
meets and then will head off to the
Palomares League prelims and finals.

We have good chemistry and play
well together, according to Bojalad. He
also said that they are hitting their stride
at this point in the season.
To get ready for CIF, Coach Settles
has scheduled a match against Troy
High School so they boys can compete
against a completely new opponent.
They are going to see a lot of competition they have never seen before and
that will test them to see where they

One kids trash provides a lesson to treasure in new animated feature

ts been a long journey, but Joel


Harpers brainchild has finally made
it all the way to the screen.
His childrens book All the Way to
the Oceanwhich teaches kids and
families about how careless littering can
wreak havoc on sea lifehas been
turned into an animated feature, set to be
debut tomorrow, Friday, April 22.
The release, planned to coincide with
Earth Day, will be celebrated with a
launch party held this evening from 4 to
6 p.m. at Walters Restaurant in Claremont. For more information, visit the All
the Way to the Ocean page on Facebook.
Mr. Harpers message of environmental consciousness will extend far beyond
the City of Trees. The movies April 22
premiere includes a worldwide release
on Vimeo.com. You can rent the 14minute film for 24 hours for $1.99 or buy
a digital copy of the movie for $4.99.
Music fans will be happy to hear that
Mr. Harper has enlisted the talent of
older brother Ben Harper for the project.
Bens song With My Own Two Hands,
recorded with Jack Johnson, serves as a
centerpiece for the film. Another track,
The Time is Now, features the musical

talents of Joel Harper and reggae group


Burning Spear.
Actresses Marcia Cross and Amy
Smart provide the voices of the narrator
and mom in the story, respectively, while
Australian musician Xavier Rudd portrays the crane.
The story is a simple one, which aims
to show how simple acts of mindfulness
can make a world of difference. When a
kid named James tosses a bottle into a
storm drain, his friend Isaac is there to
warn him about how, after it rains, our
junk can make it All the Way to the
Ocean.

The book was produced by Mr. Harper


under the auspices of his Freedom Three
Publishing Company and released in
2006. It has already made its way all the
way to the oceanit has long been
stocked in the gift shop at the Aquarium
of the Pacific in Long Beach, among
other venues.
Goals have a way of breeding new
goals, and it wasnt long before Mr.
Harper started dreaming of an animated
version of his book. Work on the project
began in earnest in 2012. It was funded
and produced by Mediatavern and Faro
Media Group in conjunction with Free-

dom Three Publishing.


Im excited to have another vehicle
to educate and inspire another generation
of ocean stewards, Mr. Harper said. Its
a huge sense of accomplishment. A lot of
blood, sweat and tears went into this.
Mr. Harper is also the author, in collaboration with artist Erin OShea, of a
book called Sea Change. The wordless
picture book encourages kids to pick up
beach trashpreventing it from harming
animalsand turn it into artwork. This
coming fall, he will release another book
through Freedom Three Publishing
called Frankie Finds the Blues.
Mr. Harper feels passionate about getting young people engaged in the world,
whether they are cleaning up or celebrating a unique American art form. He
believes children are capable of far more
than we sometimes give them credit for.
Kids need to see their impact, that they
are making a difference, he said.

These insect facts might just bug you

he largest insect ever known to


have flown is Meganeuopsis or
the griffinfly. This ancient dragonfly, which lived 290 to 250 million
years ago, had a wingspan of two-and-ahalf feet! It ate other insects and small amphibian-like critters.

Some cicadas can make sounds nearly 120 decibels loud. Thats the equivalent of rock music heard
through an amplifier, or the peak of an exciting classical song.
Eating certain foods makes you more attractive to
mosquitoes. These include items that are rich in potassium, like bananas, potatoes, prunes, raisins, lima
beans, avocados and spinach, as well as salty snacks.
Eating garlic is said to discourage mosquitoes from biting.
Only female mosquitoes bite, and only male crickets chirp.
The venom of a female black widow spider is
more dangerous than rattlesnake venom.
A cockroach can live a whole week without its
head.
When ants discover something good to eat, they
mark the area with a pheromone or chemical scent so
their fellow ants can find their way to the food.

There are worms in Australia that are over four feet


long.
Spiders sometimes pluck the strings of their webs
like a guitar. They can get a lot of information from the
ensuing echoes, including what kind of insect is tangled in their web.
In some cases, a male spider will pluck a mating
song on the strings of a female spiders web, letting her
know he is looking for love. Most spiders have poor
eyesight and rely almost exclusively on the vibration
of the silk in their webs for sensory information,
Beth Mortimor, an Oxford University researcher, explained.

Dear Ady,
My mom and dad have so many rules its
ridiculous, and my friends parents have
hardly any. I cant have a Facebook account or watch R-rated movies or wear
any makeup, even though Im in sixth
grade. I cant even have a cell phone until
Im in eighth grade! How do I get them to
loosen up?
Signed,
Left Out of Everything
Hello, Left Out of Everything.
First, I want you to know that I am in 6th grade
and am not allowed to do or have most of those
things either. But I have learned that parents have reasons for rules, which Ill get into later.
One option for you is to talk to your parents.
Maybe if you can state your case and the reasons you
feel you are responsible and mature enough, they will
be open to negotiation.
I would love a cell phone, but I dont have one either. A lot of my friends do, so I talked to my parents
about it. They are considering it this summer, so
maybe yours will too. But if they dont, no big deal,
you will get one in less than two years since they said
eighth grade. A lot of kids dont even get one until
high school.
As for the R-rated movies, sometimes they have a
lot of violence and things you really dont even want
to see. I can see why parents dont want us to see
these things. Maybe if you have a movie that you really, REALLY want to see, you can ask your parents
to watch it first and see what they think. Maybe that
will get you the permission you want.
Also, makeup is a rite of passage and a lot of parents dont think that sixth grade is the right time for
it. Theyre just trying to go take care of you and make
sure youre not growing up too fast. Theyll let you
when they think its the right time, trust me.
A lot of kids our age dont have Facebook, which
is geared more toward adults. If you want to want to
social media, maybe talk to your parents to see if
theres a different social media site for you that is
right for your age. That could be a compromise.
Like I said earlier, you can talk all of this over with
them. I do this all the time. Just make sure you are
ready to explain why you believe you are responsible enough. Of course, they may still keep their rules
and, as kids, even though its hard, we have to follow
them. But if you do respect the rules and your parents, theyre more likely to give you the things you
want in the future because you show them responsibility and maturity.
When you talk to them, try to find out why your
parents have those rules. They are probably just to
protect you. They will probably explain the reasons
they have these rules, and you might find it will be
something like they dont want you to see that because its inappropriate, or they dont think its necessary or they think you will grow up too fast. I hope
this helps you. (And I hope we both can get a cell
phone soon!)

Spread your wings at the RSABG Butterfly Pavilion

he Butterfly Pavilion at the Rancho


Santa Ana Botanic Garden unites science education and hands-on fun for
visitors of all ages. Hundreds of butterflies
call the temporary enclosure home during the
spring and summer.
Visitors can walk among the butterflies,
caterpillars and the California native plants
that they depend on for food and nectar. The
pavilion is open from May 7 through August
7, when RSABG will host a Butterfly Release
Party. Admission on Sunday, August 7 is free.
As a steward of native plants of California,
RSABG actively promotes the appreciation,
understanding and conservation of native
flora. Native plants are ideal for butterfly gardening because they provide food sources and

in turn butterflies aid in flower pollination.


The 24-foot-by-36-foot Butterfly Pavilion,
erected near the Lantz Outdoor Classroom, is
a temporary enclosure that combines science
education and interactive fun for visitors of
all ages. Visitors can walk among the butterflies and caterpillars as they feed and see
caterpillars pupate into chrysalises and
emerge as butterflies.
The pavilion is open daily from 10 a.m. to
3 p.m. (closed July 4). Tickets are $3 per person in addition to standard garden admission
of $8 for adults; $6 for seniors (65 years and
older) and students; and $4 for children age 3through 12 (under 3 free).
For more information, visit rsabg.org or
call (909) 625-8767.

KINGSLEY TUFTS/continued from page 5

beauty.
In one poem, he recalls how, as a child, he and his father would companionably devour a bucket of KFC
chicken wings, silently cleaning the bones while the
laugh track of some rerun ebbed and flowed.
In another, he describes the time he and a group of older
men won a pickup basketball game against a bunch of
snot-nosed kids. He relates the moment of triumph,
when a 61-year-old guy made a basket to win the game.
The aging athlete ripped off his shirt and threw punches
at the gods/and hollered at the kids to admire the pacemakers scar/grinning across his chest.
In other poems, Mr. Gay praises the joy of sharing figs
with fellow city-dwellers when they come upon a fruitladen tree, sleeping in his clothes and buttoning and unbuttoning his shirt, drinking water from his hands and
spending a lazy day outdoors. In some cases, his communion with nature is two parts pleasure and two parts
pain, as when he poured his fathers ashes into a hole and
planted a tree there.
Mr. Gay says focusing on gratefulness for the sake of
his book has been useful. He recently attended a spoken word reading full of poets as green as they were eager to express themselves. He was struck by the pessimism of the work.
I felt like I would like to hear more gratitude, more joy.

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.
Note: Because the Beneficiary reserves the right to
bid less than the total debt owed, it is possible that at
the time of the sale the opening bid may be less than
the total debt.
NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale
date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed
one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary,
trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the
California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made
available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to
those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn
whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if
applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale
of this property, you may call (866)-960-8299 or visit
this
Internet
Web
site
http://www.altisource.com/MortgageServices/DefaultManagement/TrusteeServices/Sales.aspx
using the file number assigned to this case 201224713. Information about postponements that are
very short in duration or that occur close in time to
the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected
in the telephone information. The best way to verify
postponement information is to attend the scheduled
sale.

SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF
THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING
AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A

appointed Trustee, under and pursuant to the power of
sale contained in that certain Deed of Trust Recorded 09/16/2014 as Document No.: 20140979432, of
Official Records in the office of the Recorder of Los
Angeles County, California, executed by: JAMES D
DOLBACK, A MARRIED MAN AS HIS SOLE

association, savings association, or savings bank
specified in section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state). All right, title

principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed

04/15/2016. Accrued interest and additional advances,
if any, will increase this figure prior to sale. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be
less than the total indebtedness due. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding
on this property lien, you should understand that there
are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You
will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the
property. You should also be aware that the lien being
auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence,
priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist
on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may
charge you a fee for this information. If you consult
either of these resources, you should be aware that the
same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed
of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY
OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale
may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee,
beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section
2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires
that information about trustee sale postponements be
made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy
to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn
whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of
this property, you may call, 1-800-280-2832 for information regarding the trustees sale or visit this Internet Web site, www.auction.com, for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, T.S.# 9986-8339. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale
may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet Web site. The best
way to verify postponement information is to attend
the scheduled sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey
title for any reason, the successful bidders sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to
the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. NBS Default Services, LLC 301 E. Ocean

TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee
auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction
does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that
the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you
are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may
be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien
being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate
the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that
may exist on this property by contacting the county
recorders office or a title insurance company, either
of which may charge you a fee for this information.
If you consult either of these resources, you should be
aware that the same lender may hold more than one
mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE
TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on
this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times
by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.
The law requires that information about trustee sale
postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you
wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date
for the sale of this property, you may call 888-988-6736
for information regarding the trustees sale or visit this
Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan.com, using
the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the
Trustee: CA-14-630925-RY. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or
on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled
sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability
for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no
street address or other common designation is shown,
directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary
within 10 days of the date of first publication of this
Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder's sole and
exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid
to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have
no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any
reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled
only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the
Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagees Attorney. If you have previously been discharged
through bankruptcy, you may have been released of
personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holders rights against
the real property only. As required by law, you are hereby notified that a negative credit report reflecting on
your credit record may be submitted to a credit report
agency if you fail to fulfill the terms of your credit obligations. QUALITY MAY BE CONSIDERED A
DEBT COLLECTOR ATTEMPTING TO COLLECT A DEBT AND ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE.
