Destroying California
Dear Editor: I was surprised at your editorial of May 22 [Peter Weinbergers My Side of the Line.] If Now is the time to vote incumbent in November, it must be because things are going so well. I, for one, am not happy with the way California is going. I am not happy that we are laying off our teachers at all levels, from elementary schools to the University of California. That is our next generation that we are selling down the river. We are running out of money even though we are the 7th largest economy in the world. We are running out of money because we love Proposition 13, dont we? Proposition 13 is ruining our state; we are dismantling California for a dream of a California that never existed. I have lived in California as an adult since 1948, and it was a pretty good state then; good schools, good universities and few prisons. By all means, vote the incumbents in if you are happy the way things are going. People, if you want to destroy California, no one is going to stop you.

comes from flushing toilets. Its estimated that these HETs will save thousands of gallons a month and hundreds of dollars per year for a household of four. Pulling off such a successful event requires help from a lot of people. Customers needed assistance as HETs were loaded into vehicles on the day of the distribution. Two weeks later, those same customers needed assistance as they dropped off their older toilets for collection at the high school. The Claremont High School Softball Boosters and Band Boosters worked hard and deserve recognition for their support of this project. For their efforts, Golden State Water Company made a financial donation to Claremont High School based on the number of toilets returned. And of course, our customers deserve recognition for participating. Each customer made arrangements to have their old toilet removed and the new one installed. Thank you Claremont customers and volunteers for your efforts. Together, we can make a difference and ensure a reliable supply of water for our future. More information about how to save water and save money is available at www.gswater.com.

Kudos to customers and local volunteers for supporting water conservation event
Dear Editor: A recent event in Claremont is a great example of how a community can work together to make good things happen to support water conservation. During a Golden State Water Company (GSWC) high-efficiency toilet (HET) exchange event at Claremont High School, local teens helped GSWC distribute 795 free HETs to Claremont customers. During a similar event in Claremont last year, 324 toilets were given away. About 27 percent of indoor water use

Unfortunately, there is no pain-free path to that goal. The district has only a few options in front of itthe state mandates a 3-year balanced budget, and all of our current available reserves will be depleted over the course of that budget. Because those reserves will only fund a portion of the districts ongoing deficit, the only way to avoid teacher layoffs and higher class sizes is through salary rollbacks or shortening the school year through furlough days. While it will undoubtedly be a hardship to teachers, parents and children, we fully support shortening the school year so that no teacher has to be laid off and class sizes can remain at current levels. We also support buying back furlough days as the first priority if the budget situation changes and additional money becomes available. We commend our teachers for speaking out in favor of preserving the quality of education in our district, and we commend our administrators for steering us through this economic crisis with sound, far-sighted financial decisionmaking, and for publicly committing to keeping all of our teachers with the implementation of 6 furlough days. We encourage the quick resolution of this issue through an agreement between the teachers union and the district administration.

In support of furlough days


Dear Editor: We were heartened to see such an outpouring of support for Claremonts wonderful teachers at the CUSD Board Meeting on Thursday, May 20. It was clear that as a community we prize our teachers and dont want to lose any of them due to the current budget crisis. The overriding sentiment at the meeting among teachers, parents and administrators was that maintaining current class sizes is of paramount importanceit is the by far the best option for our children.

City council getting closer to reaching budget goals

here were few words of encouragement at Saturdays budget workshop. The city council met to consider measures to address Claremonts remaining budget deficit over the next 2 years.

The city was still short about $235,000 for 2010-11 and another $750,000 for 2011-12. City staff presented its plan for addressing the shortfall before the council. Some of the deficit was covered by adjusted revenue and expenditure figures after considering cuts in staff and department budgets already approved in March. Staff recommended more cuts, such as travel expenses and medical benefits for city council members. Other savings came from anticipated concessions from city staff during their ongoing salary contract negotiations. Mayor Pro Tem Sam Pedroza stated the need for city employees to take benefits cuts in order to sustain ourselves in the long term. I keep hearing people saying, dont privatize our

services, Mr. Pedroza said. Well, its public employees and the public pensions and the benefits that make these costs so difficult. And thats where cost get out of control. How can we as a city maintain those services and at the same time work with our employees to have a long term sustainable operation? City Manager Jeff Parker said the city had set aside another $500,000 in anticipation of another state takeaway as it continues to deal with its budget mess. I think were still a target, even though the governors budget doesnt say that, Mr. Parker said. A handful of residents spoke out at the meeting, mostly critical of how the city has handled its budget problems. Katie Gereke of the League of Women Voters was concerned about the citys growing trend of contracting out services and its impact on quality of service and transparency in government. Police Commissioner Barbara Musselman questioned the accuracy of the figures produced by city staff as some of the numbers listed in city documents didnt match up, she said. Chair of the Planning Commission Bob Tener urged the council to create a committee dedicated specifically to examining economic development in Clare-

mont. The city needs a process that will enable our city to identify and energize needed strategies for obtaining future economic health, Mr. Tener said. Council members supported the idea of starting a blue ribbon Mayors committee comprised of council members, city staff and a handful of citizen experts. Today is just a step in a journey towards fiscal security for our community, Mr. Schroeder said. Whatever is decided here today, we have many further steps to achieve that goal. What we need is a process to analyze our current fiscal situation and a plan that can guide our community to improve fiscal health. The 2-year budget process began in February with public workshops including online surveys to gauge the publics opinions on city priorities. The council has already approved major cuts in order to balance the budget by eliminating 20 staff positions, postponing the design of a new police station and privatizing the citys Preschool and Tiny Tots programs. A final budget will be approved at a June 12 meeting before the beginning of the upcoming fiscal year.

Bank at Old School House robbed Friday


Claremont Police Department continues to search for suspect

itibank in the Old School House was robbed late Friday afternoon. Around 5:15 p.m., a man wearing a baseball hat threatened a teller and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
According to Claremont Police Lieutenant Shelly Vander Veen, the robber handed the teller a note that stated, Im armed. Remain calm and I will not hurt anyone. He demanded $5000 in cash from the bank. After receiving the money, the man quickly walked out of the bank. Witnesses did not see a getaway vehicle or observe in which direction the man fled. Jason Contreras of Ontario was standing in line behind the robber during the heist. He said the man was carrying a cash deposit bag with him. I thought it was a little strange because the bag was empty, Mr. Contreras said. Normally when you make a business deposit, the cash bag is full. It made me a little suspicious. After the man left the bank with the cash, the teller who was threatened became visibly upset by the en-

counter, Mr. Contreras said. She was just shocked, he said. She broke down in tears. Mr. Contreras was surprised to find the Claremont branch of Citibank does not have a bulletproof glass barrier between customers and tellers like many other branches hes visited. Witnesses and police described the robber as a

white male, late 30s to early 50s, 5 feet 9 inches tall, 180 pounds, wearing a baseball cap, a button down dark green shirt and blue jeans. Although no weapon was seen, the robber implied in the note given to the teller he was carrying a weapon. Police are currently studying forensic evidence left at the scene and reviewing surveillance video at the bank. Tony Krickl

Ontario resident Jason Contreras was in line at the Citibank branch in Claremont on Friday when the man in front of him allegedly robbed the bank. According to Mr. Contreras the man seemed suspicious because he had an empty merchants deposit envelope and appeared to be nervous.

City leaders gather to support Mi Casa, Su Casa

laremonts city and schools met Sunday evening as leaders converged on the Casa 425 hotel patio to raise funds for both the Claremont Educational Foundation (CEF) and the Claremont Community Foundation (CCF) through its annual fundraiser Mi Casa, Su Casa.
In its third year, Mi Casa, Su Casa has developed into a veritable whos who of Claremont community leaders. City council members, Claremont Unified School District board members and administration, as well as teachers and city staff were all on hand to enjoy samples from restaurants including Spaggis and Le Pain Quotidien, as well as select wines from vintners such as Far Miente, Franciscan, Nickel & Nickel and Robert Mondavi. We have sold out all 3 years, said Suzanne Hall, who was on the planning committee of this years event. Guests were encouraged to purchase $40 wine labels for an elimination raffleapproximately 70 were soldwhere labels were placed in a large bin and guests were eliminated as their labels were drawn. The 4 winners took home a case of wine each, much of which was donated by the Fairplex in Pomona. Part of the evenings proceeds will go toward a $1000 scholarship to a yet-to-be determined Claremont High School student to be used in furthering their education. CCF and CEF will present the Mi Casa Scholarship jointly at the Claremont High School awards ceremony on June 15 at Bridges Auditorium. Claremont High School representatives will be involved in the selection process, and the scholarship will be awarded based on both an effort and needs basis. This is the second year the scholarship has been awarded. Last years honoree was Helen Arase.

Proceeds from the $75 per ticket event go to support the work of both organizations. CCF and CEF representatives will meet next week to compile preliminary figures. CCF was established in 1989 to serve the long-term philanthropic needs of the Claremont community by donating on two levels, community impact and the arts. Programs of interest include those designed to improve or maintain living conditions for local individuals and families in need of support as well as projects intended to enhance the community aesthetically through public art installations or exhibitions. The Claremont Educational Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 1991 which according to its website, serves as a funding partner to CUSD. Casa 425 representatives were on hand to assist guests and wine representatives and to assure the evening went smoothly. We are happy to give back to the community, said developer Jonathan Tolkin. We truly appreciate being involved in the community. The Mi Casa Organizing Committee includes: Jonathan Tolkin, Glenn Loucks and Nicole Hofmans from Hotel Casa 425; Laura Dandoy, Linda Troyer, Suzanne Hall, Nickie Cleaves and Marilyn Bidwell from CCF; and Amy Mathieson and Karen SalterMoss from CEF. Joel Cinnamon of Cinnamon Design provided graphic design services for the event. Executive Director of CCF Nickie Cleaves indicated that while the formal planning began in January, a wrap up meeting was held shortly after last years event to begin to lay the groundwork for this years fundraiser. We shared the responsibility as we share the profits, Ms. Cleaves said in reference to CEF and CCFs joint effort. I was very pleased with it this year. The hotel has new staff that worked very well with our existing committees. We have a good collaborative effort between the hotel and both committees.

Adult fitness courses in danger of elimination

he Claremont Unified School District adult fitness program may be the latest victim of the districts budget cuts.

Claremont Adult School fitness teacher Mike Lepore is hoping to keep the resistance and circuit training classes alive through fundraising efforts to independently support the courses so they remain as part of the districts adult education offerings. This all used to be funded through Sacramento and our classes made money for the district based on the Average Daily Attendance, Mr. Lepore explained. If class attendance exceeded the salary I was paid, then it made money for the district. Then all of a sudden, Steve Boyd sends me an email saying that this is it. Mr. Lepore received the message from the Claremont Adult School Principal, Mr. Boyd, a few months ago. During that time, Mr. Lepore and the class participants raised enough money to continue holding classes until June 11th. In the meantime, Mr. Lepore has received $2000 in support from the InterValley Health Providers and the Claremont Kiwanis Club. The instructor is still at work to find other sponsors for the 2 courses. According to Mr. Lepore, the elimination of the classes will be a great loss to his adult students, ranging from the age of 21 to 97. The classes meet Monday through Thursday with the resistance training taking place at 5:30 p.m. at El Roble and the circuit training course beginning at 7 p.m. on the Claremont High School campus. I was really disheartened that the 50-60 people that attend the exercise classes wouldnt have this as a part of their lives anymore, he said. And these are not the type of people that are going to go and join a

gym because some of them dont have the money to do that. With the rates of diabetes, obesity and sarcopenia, all of that can be addressed with the resistance training we do. Concerns about the future prompted 4 class participants to speak before the CUSD Board of Education last Thursday. One of the speakers was retired El Roble Intermediate School teacher Cherryl Cook. After retiring in 2007, Ms. Cook underwent 5 dif-

ferent surgeries that included operations on her spine, hip, knee and gall bladder. Confined to the use of a walker, she was introduced to the adult school fitness program by Mr. Lepore in 2008. Ms. Cook told the board how the program helped her recover to the point where she no longer needs walking assistance. The results have been amazing, she explained. By the spring of 2009, I parked my walker. I use it now to cart my flowers around and its my little wagon now. Soon I was walking unassisted. Thanks to Mikes guidance, the program he developed for me, and the facilities available at CHS, Ive been able to resume activities and lead a normal life. Marcia Berry also voiced her concerns to the board regarding the fitness programs possible dismissal. She pleaded to the board to allow Mr. Lepore and the class participants more time to raise money to fund the program past the June date. Im not asking for moneyIm asking for time, Ms. Berry told the board. You dont have to give us money. Give a chance to get more money, let us pay for it. Could we have even 5 weeks? Mike is out there writing letters and pulling everywhere he can. Dont give us money, just give us time. Following the public comments, CUSD Board President Hilary LaConte requested the item be set aside for the board to look into. The board has not made a decision as of time of print. Dr. [Terry] Nichols is looking into the issue, Ms. LaConte told the COURIER. The equipment is there, the building is there and the cost is really for the fabulous instructors and electricity. Maybe if many people could pay a class fee and there is outside support to sponsor some of the people in each class, then it is something that can be done. Mr. Lepore plans to continue exploring options in hopes the courses will continue to be offered through the Claremont Adult School program. He is currently in talks with the Claremont Club and Kaiser Permanente. If nothing else, I will keep looking into fundraising, he said. But Im also waiting to hear what the board will do because I dont want to go wild doing fundraising and then its for nothing.

Bicycling in Claremont
by Carla Jackson

hat if someone offered you the opportunity to improve your health, help the environment, have fun, save money, accomplish your daily tasks, and easily find a parking place all at the same time? Its no gimmick; this opportunity does exist, and it comes in the form of bicycle riding. Whats more, during the coming months bicycling in Claremont will become even more convenient.
Switching to a bicycle for shorter trips, errands, or getting to work or school has many environmental, health and economic benefits for Claremont residents. From an environmental perspective, research shows that shorter trips in motor vehicles are the most polluting. Short trips are big contributors to our smog problem since emissions controls on motor vehicles dont begin to function until later in a trip. A WorldWatch Institute study showed that a short 4-mile round-trip bike ride could keep as much as 15 pounds of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. Around 40 percent of car trips that Americans take are within this distance. Improved health is another benefit to bicycle riding. Bicycling means less smog and fewer particulates, which can cause respiratory and cardiovascular health issues. In addition, bicycling is a wonderful form of cardiovascular exercise. People who engage in regular exercise enjoy better health, better sleep, and have better mental health, plus reduced risks of heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers, stroke, obesity, and depression.

Paving the way (or not)


Dear Editor: Im writing about John Pixleys proposal to pave the loop trail in the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park (Observer, May 19). I admire Pixleys efforts to explore nature in and around the Los Angeles area in a wheelchair. However, I think paving the trail is a bad idea. Im based in Sacramento now, but lived in Claremont for many years and visit there frequently. Ive been on that trail hundreds of times, often (a little too often, theyd probably say) with my grandkids. What attracts us and so many other people to the wilderness park is its relative wildness. The roughness of the trail, really a dirt fire road, adds to the experience. There arent many easily accessible places like it nearby.

readers comments
I work professionally in international nature conservation and lead an effort within the International Union for Conservation of Nature to push worldwide for better understanding of the connections and disconnections between nature and urban people (for details, visit www.citiesandconservation.org). In that role, Ive visited many cities around the world. In urban areas as diverse as London, Rio de Janeiro, and Cape Town, Ive seen how paving pathways in nature parks detracts from the experience of being in a natural or quasi-natural environment. Certainly there are places where pavement is needed because of very heavy use or a wet climate, but the Claremont trail fits neither category. As someone who can walk, it may seem unkind for me to note that Pixley admitted he made it around the 5.5mile loop in 2 hours in his powered wheelchair. Ive seen many oldsters huffing and puffing up the hill with canes. Its not an easy trek for anyone, even the regular runners, joggers, and bicyclists. The Claremont Hills Wilderness Park is a great asset for Claremont. Expand it, care for it, promote its use for education and research, as well as recreation, but please dont pave it.

ome people grow up with the burning desire to do one thing in life, and they follow a straight path to do it. But Jennifer Julian Johnson, a recent graduate from Pitzer Colleges New Resources Program for students of non-traditional college age, with her insatiable appetite for variety, approaches life with a little more zigzag.
After struggling with the perception that society views her life as scattered, to her own meandering self she can finally be true: I am the plate spinner, the juggler, the multitalent. And so, energetic, ebullient Ms. Johnson, JJ to many, has fluttered in many directions, crisscrossing the world and finding thrilling ways to express her creativity and help others do the same. A native to Montana and a resident of Claremont for the last several years, she has collected nectar as a radio personality, voice-over artist, spokesperson, Broadway actor, non-profit co-founder, at-risk youth teacher, dance instructor, documentary maker, consummate volunteer and soon-to-be Fulbright cultural ambassador to Slovakia. It took a lot of heartache and a long time to realize that I cant just pick one thing, I shouldnt pick just one thing, she said. I am like the hummingbird that rules the garden. If you watch hummingbirds, they flit from flower to flower, getting nectar, and they get that nectar and move on to the next flower. My path was always what to do, because I wanted to do so many things, she said. Choosing has been my problem. With early flair for entertaining, teenage Ms. Johnson made quite a stir imitating celebrity performers and winning lip sync contests. But when she was kicked out of a cover band whose members thought her voice wasnt good enough, it became time to stop mimicking others and get real. I believe theres a real difference between imitation and finding your own voice, said Ms. Johnson, whose reaction to her band mates dismissal was, Fine, Ill show you.
JULIAN JOHNSON continues on the next page COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff Claremont resident Jennifer Julian Johnson has spent years in the entertainment industry both on stage and behind the scenes. Ms. Johnson will spend the next two years as a Fulbright Cultural Ambassador in Slovakia and then begin the next phase of her career as a documentary film maker.

JULIAN JOHNSON continued from the previous page

And she did. Im very tenacious, I never say die, Ms. Johnson said. If you want something so bad, you can do or be anything you want. Beyond finding success in behind-the-scenes media and entertainment work, (including great fun as a voiceover artist: remember the ditty, Hot Pockets?), Ms. Johnson has wowed the world as a star-quality stage performer. So far, her highlight experience was playing the irreverent female lead alongside Monty Pythons Eric Idle in his Exploits Monty Python and Greedy Bastard North American tours from 2000-2003. Not originally a fan of the cheeky British comedy, upon receiving the chance to audition for the Sexy, fun singer with comedic timing needed role, Ms. Johnson watched every episode of Monty Pythons Flying Circus as well as all of their movies. Among 50 actresses auditioning, Ms. Johnson sang her guts out and landed the part, along with a debut at Carnegie Hall. Ill never forget the standing ovation, she said. I remember looking out over the crowd thinking, Im a singer. Ive arrived at Carnegie Hall. Im doing this. So many times has Ms. Johnson stood on stage, looking out at the audience, but it is the rare moment that she is thinking me. More often, she is feeling deep gratitude for her mentors, and for the opportunity to touch peoples lives through the arts. A few years ago, taking a bow on the Hollywood Bowl stage after a Hall of Fame Tribute to Monty Python, she saw just how transformative art can be. I will never forget looking out at this sea of people and seeing this huge banner, We love you Miss J, she recalled. Holding the sign were students from a Baldwin Park continuation high school who Ms. Johnson had worked with as an artist-in-residence for several Los Angeles

theater companies. She remembers the rocky start. Most of the girls were pregnant and there were a lot of gang-bangers. They did not want me there. They didnt want this little white chick telling them how to better their lives, she remembered. But 6 weeks later, after listening to them, really listening to them, she said, not only had they written and performed a play, their sense of self-concept (and their opinion of the little white chick) had drastically changed. And for many of the teenagers, the Hollywood

My beast has been self-criticism. I call it my gremlin.


Julian Johnson Pitzer College Graduate Fulbright U.S. Cultural Ambassador in Slovakia

Bowl trip was their first venture beyond the borders of Baldwin Park. Its a testament to the power of art, she said. It can help people cross boundaries in every way. This September, Ms. Johnson will cross a major boundary herself, fluttering her wings all the way to Slovakia in Central Europe, fulfilling, for one year, the Fulbright ambassadorship she was recently awarded. At Matej Bel University in the city of Bansk Bystrica, she will empower students through theater education, helping them write and perform a play in English.

I am stepping into the abyss of complete and total unfamiliarity and newness, she said of her impending adventure. I dont know what to expect, and thats the great adventure. With its enticing amenities and a landscape closely resembling Montana (minus castles on every corner), Ms. Johnson expects to feel right at home. Slovakia has spas and wineries. I think Im going to be okay, she joked. Despite the many credits and successes to her name, upon learning of her Fulbright award, a former, unsavory character in Ms. Johnsons life made its presence known once again. My gremlin, she said. My beast has been self-criticism. I call it my gremlin, she said. Ive masked it with an overly confident attitude, while inside Ive felt inadequate, not good enough. When I got the Fulbright, I went back to my inner demon. But then, calling upon what she knows to be true about herself: I know I am capable, she put duct tape over its mouth and sat it in the corner. Youre not helpful anymore, she told her gremlin, opting for authentic self-assurance instead of its faade. Before flying to Slovakia, Ms. Johnson will drive Bart, her motor home, to Montana where she will study the Slovak language and facilitate a 6-day theater workshop, Empowerment Through Performance (ETP), designed to foster self-esteem in teenagers. ETP, co-created by Ms. Johnson is part of the Share Your Voice Foundation, a non-profit she co-founded in 2007. After returning from her 10-month adventure in Central Europe, Ms. Johnson intends to land an internship with the Discovery Network or the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) while completing her masters degree at Claremont Graduate University. But who knows. Im trying not to have the road trip planned out for the rest of my life. Brenda Bolinger

Eduardo A. Bestard
Eduardo Antonio Ed Bestard, MD, died on May 20, 2010 at his home in Upland. Dr. Bestard was born in Asuncion, Paraguay on September 11, 1921. After his mother died he was 4 years old, his father, Antonio Basil, a renowned doctor, chemist and medical professor at the university in Asuncion, and his aunt, Panchita, raised him. In 1946, he completed a medical residency program at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia before returning to Paraguay where he married Merry Carisimo-Pfannl in 1947. Following the Paraguayan Civil War, he immigrated to the United States in 1954, bringing along his wife and their 3 young boys, ages 5, 3 and 2 (William, Antonio and Edward). They lived in Pensacola, Florida while he completed a second residency at the military base there, later moving to Santa Barbara, and then Upland, where he spent the rest of his life. He had 2 more children, Mariana and Stella. Dr. Bestard worked as an orthopedic surgeon for Kaiser Permanente from

orthopedic surgeon, university instructor, lively conversationalist


method to correct recurrent posterior dislocation of the shoulder. His glenoplasty procedure is still used and taught today. In 1969, while driving home in the rain from an evening event, Dr. Bestard came upon the scene of a horrible traffic accident. He performed an emergency tracheotomy on one of the victims using a penknife and ballpoint pen. He was later recognized by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Department for his life-saving efforts. He had indomitable spirit and a great sense of humor, noted his family, and a fondness for loud and lengthy political and philosophical discussions, evolutionary theory, space and time continuum, crossword puzzles, chess, good food and wine. Dr. Bestard is survived by 5 children, William F. Bestard of Claremont; Antonio J. Bestard and his wife Karen Orr Bestard of Claremont, Eduardo H. Bestard and his wife Tyler Westland Bestard of San Clemente, Mariana Bestard Lamb and her husband David W. Lamb of Upland, and Stella Bestard Cruzalegui and her husband, Augusto R. Cruzalegui of Claremont; and by 15 grandchildren, Nicole Bestard and her husband Nathan Hill, Antonio M. Bestard, David Lamb, Robert Lamb, Margeaux Bestard, Logan Bestard, Hunter Bestard, Blake Bestard, Erin Bestard, Barret Bestard, Ariana Lamb, Merry Bestard, Carolina Cruzalegui, Augusto E.

Run for the Red inaugural attracts runners and support for Claremont Red Cross

Winners and stories galore prevailed throughout the morning, but perhaps none more important than the support garnered for the Claremont Chapter of American Red Cross, beneficiary of the apDonald Garner proximately $23,000 raised (beheads for the fore expenses) from entry fees, finish.

Fastest to cover the 10K course that began just south of Strehle Track on the Pomona College campus was Robert Sager, 17, of Apple Valley. The Granite Hills High School senior covered the 6.2 miles in 34:43.5, setting the standard for future races. Winning the 5K race with a speedy 16:50.3 was Josh Bolliger of Anaheim, a senior at Canyon High School who plans to continue running at California State University at San Marcos. Jesse Tracy, 26, lead female runners for the 10K and came in 6th overall with a time of 43:01.2. Lizette Dinsay, 30, of Rancho Cucamonga was the first female finisher in the 5K, placing 25th overall in that competition. The achievements led one bystander to comment that the event was the rare occasion when you can mention a womans age without being killed for it. Perhaps not the fastest, but a star in his class with some definite Claremont connections, was Donald Garner, who at a young 90 years of age, completed the 3.1 miles of the 5K for a bronze award in his age group. Mr. Garner, accompanied by his son and daughter-in-law, Van and Virginia Garner of Claremont, is the son of Homer Garner. As a child, Mr.

Garner grew up in the noted Garner House in what is now Memorial Park. He covered the course in a brisk hour and 10 minutes and seemed to be thoroughly enjoying the challenge. The younger Mr. and Mrs. Garner were taking part on behalf of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Societythe team in training for endurance events. Adding an interesting and impressive touch to the proceedings was a 36-member contingent of cadets from the Rio Hondo College Police Academy, running and chanting in unison behind their banner. Senior Tactical Officer Robert Termath explained that the cadets are in the midst of the colleges 22-week training program. Another sizeable presence in the 5K competition traveled a considerably shorter distance from Pilgrim Place in Claremont. The senior athletes work out during walks every Friday and enjoy entering various events. Members taking home medals from that group included Bill and Grace Moreman, both first place finishers in the 75 and up age group; Kay Brown, who topped the 70-74 male 5K finishers; Sue Gallagher, a gold medal winner in the 65-69 age group; Anelise Smith, tops in the 70-74 women, and a number of their fellow active Pilgrims. Claremonters Leo Bister and Susan Nee did the heavy lifting as co-race directors among Red Cross volunteers (with a significant assist from Rosie Bister). Other volunteers included Kathy Anderson in charge of first aid; Bill Buehler (assisted by Tinker Belle in a sporty pink racing ensemble) was in charge of logistics. Dennis Smith was the race registrar and Frida Ross-Palomino worked with sponsors and inkind donations. Volunteer course marshals were Chuck Freitas and Gary Troyer, and Rich and Fran Laughton coordinated a small army of volunteers. Mike Conley, Claremont Red Crosss Chief Executive Officer joked that he just walked around and enjoyed myself. Race results were compiled by Prime Time and can be accessed online through ClaremontRedCross.org to check details of individual times.

ITS A SMALL WORLD Claremonter Sharon Hightower was busily touring the Victoria and Albert Museum in London last week with her daughter Elizabeth Putrino when they happened upon COURIER columnist Jan Wheatcroft who was, of course, viewing a special quilting exhibit. Earlier that week, Ms. Hightower reported running into a former colleague from Rancho Palos Verdes in the Avignon Rail Station . IN ACADEMIA Haverford College announced the graduation of Nicholas Vechik, son of Anne and Terry Vechik of Claremont, and a graduate of the Webb Schools. One of just 291 members of Haverfords Class of 2010, Mr. Vechik received a bachelors degree in astronomy during commencement ceremonies in Haverford, Pa. on Sunday, May 16. Founded in 1833, Haverford is the oldest institution of higher education in North America with Quaker roots and today considers itself a non-sectarian and highly diverse institution that retains many of the guiding principles of its founders, such as emphasis on community and respect for individual conscience. In other academic news, Michelle Pastrano of Claremont was recently named to the deans list at Lycoming College. Ms. Pastrano studies archaeology and anthropology To make the deans list, a student must be carry a full-time program and earn a grade point average of 3.5 or higher for the semester. GIVING BACK The Girl Scout Council of Greater Los Angeles and KidCare International

back page
on Sunday presented Claremont Junior Girl Scout Troop 2044 with the Bronze Award, the highest honor a Junior Girl Scout can achieve. To win the award, the girls were required to learn the leadership and planning skills necessary to follow through on a project that makes a positive impact on their community. The 17-member troop won the award for opening the Community Clothing Closet at the KidCare CARE Center in Montclair last October. Since then, the girls from the Claremont community and Granite Creek Community Church have volunteered at the closet, distributing clothing to needy families. Once a month, we are able to serve more than 100 families with gentlyused, donated clothing that the girls collect from family and friends and the local community donates, said Claremont resident Dena Anderson, coleader of the Troop 2044.
