Borrowed money for current programming?
Dear Editor: Before moving to Claremont in August, I was a member of a board of education in Connecticut for the last decade I have experience in school board funding challenges, and in effective ways to communicate the needs of a district to the electorate. Foremost among those methods is complete transparency and a clear vision for spending taxpayer funds. I am a strong advocate for public education and believe that quality costs money. The entire community needs to be engaged as a partner; those who disagree are not enemies to be thwarted but partners whose ideas need to be embraced to create effective educational leadership. Given my experience, I have doubts about spending any portion of the Prop CL funds on current program funding. Capital projects such as roofing or HVAC are a proper use of long-term borrowed money. Computers and annual programming needs are not. Sports teams, special programming and staff are often accompanied by vocal supporters, but HVAC and driveway maintenance are orphans, meaning the easy path is to use an increased share for annual program needs, making capital projects require even more borrowed money in the future. I believe the district can do better. I believe that voters will support borrowing money for specific long-term projects that are identified within the bonding request, rather than a vague laundry list of potential uses. I believe that voters would also support additional school funding for annual needs, voted on annually, and urge the district to explore that option before borrowing money for short term needs.
Joe Farrell Claremont

Claremont the beautiful


Dear Editor: Just over 2 years ago my wife and I moved to Claremont as we were getting ready to start a family. Since then our home has lost value, I took a teaching paycut by leaving a neighboring district to teach in Claremont, and I voted for an additional paycut this past year. We dont second-guess our decision to move here because we are convinced that the city that focuses on education will continue to flourish. I love the educated debate taking place in the COURIER regarding Measure CL. Pretty much everybody is correct. Homeowners would benefit from a successful school district while some homeowners are struggling. The previous bond had problems with interest rates/construction costs while the proposed bond could benefit from low interest rates/construction costs. CEF is an irreplaceable group for giving to public education, however CEFs annual giving is approximately .3 percent of the desired $95 million bond measure. Grandchildren will be left with a tax burden while those same children would be left with an outdated school system. And the list goes on When you look at the 7 private colleges in our community, you will see schools that are always improving their

infrastructure. These schools want an infrastructure that will prepare their graduates to compete for jobs requiring 21st century skills. CUSDs vision is no different. So how should one vote if both sides of the argument are convincing? Each citizen should have their core values lead them. Do you believe that schools are important? The answer is easy for me, I want Claremont schools to flourish. Vote yes on Measure CL!
David Sawhill Claremont homeowner Pitzer/CGU alumnus CUSD teacher

Does this make sense?


Dear Editor: Does it make sense to spend increasing amounts of money on your car if it is going to break down more and more? The article in the Saturday COURIER showing that Claremont is not alone in seeking new money for schools seemed to illustrate this logic. It implied that, once again, the existing state and local tax and expenditure system has broken down. However, the state and local government are going to continue to take the same amount (or more) of our money, yet continue to fail. So we simply didnt borrow enough the first time and if we only borrow more this problem will go away.
John Roseman Claremont

Claremont since 1967. I am opposed to the bond measure for the following reasons: Debt financing will more than double the real cost of this bond ($95,000,000 will actually cost us more than $250,000,000) As of the 2000 census, there were 11,281 households in the city. The average liability, per household, for $250,000,000 of debt would be $22,000 over the life of the bond. Many of us would pay much more. Seventeen percent of the students who attend a Claremont school live outside our district (inter-district transfers). That means that $42,000,000 of this bond will go to benefit students who dont even live in Claremont and whose parents dont pay taxes in Claremont. We should have closed one elementary school years ago. That 17 percent of inter-district transfers represents the number of empty seats we actually have in this school district. How many of our kids already have computers and i-Pods at home? Do we really need another $20,000,000 for technology upgrades? In the midst of the worst recession in living memory, our community would be unwise to assume liability for a future debt of $250,000,000. We should wait until our economic situation improves. Then we should make a list of what we NEEDnot what we WANT.

Yao becomes finalist for re-districting commission

ouncil member Peter Yao is among the finalists being considered to serve on the Citizens Redistricting Commission of California.
Established by Proposition 11 and passed by California voters in 2008, the commission is tasked with re-drawing the lines indicating new legislative districts based upon the 2010 Census. Mr. Yao, a Republican, was notified in late September that he was among the field of applicants narrowed down to 60 final candidates. I think that the legislatures over the year have redrawn the districts to their own advantage and have lost sight of who they are really representing, Mr. Yao said. The districts today run across city lines and county lines. We need to start from scratch to have districts that are more representative of the community. Mr. Yao also said the chance to serve on the commission would be a great opportunity for him to learn more about the state of California. It would be a very interesting and challenging task that would take us across the entire state visiting counties and cities in order to redraw the districts, he said. Mr. Yao, a retired engineer with Raytheon Corporation, believes his professional background gives him a good

comprehension of the statistical tools needed to do the redistricting. As an elected official, he feels he has an understanding of the political nature of the boundaries and can be fair and impartial in doing the job. The 3-member panel to select the committee interviewed the final 120 candidates in August in Sacramento be-

fore narrowing the field to 60. During the 90-minute interview, Mr. Yao was asked questions about one of his 3 letters of recommendation written by Edward Lee, the former attorney with Best Best & Krieger who served as city attorney for the city of Bell. After news broke of the excessive salaries for city officials in Bell, Mr. Lee was not re-assigned to his position as city attorney and no longer works for Best Best and Krieger. Mr. Yao said the 2 became friends about 10 years ago while their children attended the Webb Schools together. When asked if his association with Mr. Lee might hurt his chances to be selected to the commission, Mr. Yao said the decision is not his hands. I believe Edward has done a good job for the city of Bell, and I dont believe he was involved in the problems there at all, Mr. Yao said. Thats not in his character. There were a total of 30,725 persons who submitted preliminary applications to serve on the commission. Of those, 24,915 were ruled eligible. Only 4,518 state residents completed the full application. The final commission will be comprised of 14 California citizens and will include 5 registered Democrats, 5 registered Republicans and 4 registered as Decline-to-State individuals. The final members of the commission will be selected by December 31, 2010.

Parking issues put dent in Cruise Night party

ruise Night has been a major draw for the last 15 years, attracting classic car enthusiasts from around the region to Claremonts Village.
But organizer Sandy Coglietti, owner of the Village Grille, says its time to call it quits after years of fighting the city and neighboring business owners over the event. I just cant do it anymore, she said. Ms. Coglietti and her late husband began Cruise Night as a way to attract visitors to the Village and drum up extra business for their restaurant. When he passed away 5 years ago, Ms. Coglietti wanted to keep it going despite the difficulties involved in running it alone. Over the years, the monthly event has attracted hundreds of classic car owners whose vehicles are put on display along Yale Avenue and nearby streets. But this past year, participation in Cruise Night has dwindled significantly due to parking problems that include a hired police officer giving out tickets. The word is out, she said. Nobody wants to come here and drive around in circles trying to get a parking spot or risk getting a parking ticket. I feel like Im paying to have someone here to give out tickets to my guests, she added. Thats not what I want and thats not what Cruise Night is about. The growing costs involved in putting on the event have become a burden. With a DJ, the hired police officer, extra restaurant staff and annual permits from the city, Cruise Night does not come

to lack of parking. Assistant City Manager Tony Ramos said the city is willing to work with Ms. Coglietti to try to resolve some of her concerns. I am shocked that she feels this way, Mr. Ramos said. We have been meeting this past year to try to identify ways to assist her. Mr. Ramos said Cruise Night is a great event brings that brings a lot of people to downtown and benefits numerous businesses. However some businesses, such as salons and boutiques, do not benefit and have complained to the city and Chamber of Commerce. We need to respect some of the wishes of the other merchants, too, Mr. Ramos said. Saturday night is a big night for them, so we need to hammer COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff out the details.

Parents demand expulsion of elemenatry school student

ome parents are calling for the expulsion of a student at Oakmont Elementary School after a spate of recent fights involving the 9-year-old girl.

A handful of parents believe school officials have not taken appropriate steps to protect the safety of their children and are rallying together to pressure the school district to take further action. Meanwhile, the parents of the girl in question have called for patience as they work with the school district to try to resolve the issue. The growing dispute received public attention on Friday morning when parent Cindy Summers, whose son was involved in a fight with the girl, passed out flyers detailing some of the incidents. Without approval from the school or district, Ms. Summers distributed the flyers, which called for the childs expulsion, to parents in front of Oakmonts normally quiet campus. Oakmont is supposed to be a safe place to learn for our children and right now its not, Ms. Summers said. School officials say they are working to resolve the issues and maintain Oakmonts safe campus, but declined to go into details, citing student confidentiality requirements. Our campus is very safe. Theres nothing unsafe about it, Oakmont Principal Adriana Garrett said. There are some special circumstances that Im not at liberty to discuss, but were putting measures in place and things are being taken care of. Police were called to the school on 2 occasions in the past few weeks. The most serious incident occurred on Thursday, September 16, when a student was stabbed in the hand with a pencil.

Claremont Police Detective Joe Maddox said the case is currently being reviewed by the District Attorneys Office for juveniles to see if criminal charges will be filed. The girl was suspended for 5 days because of the altercation. The father of the girl, Tom Larson, a teacher at Claremont High School, said his daughter was not even aware she had a pencil in her hand during the altercation. She felt awful about what happened, Mr. Larson said. The mother of the victim, Shamilla Pennington, disputed the claim, believing the girl purposely attempted to stab her son in the chest with the pencil, but connected with the palm of his hand as he tried to protect himself. She later took her son to the hospital for treatment of the injury. My son is terrified and he doesnt feel safe there anymore, Ms. Pennington said. As a parent, Im really at wits end over what to do here. Police were called back to the school last week because of another altercation involving the girl and Ms. Summers son. During the incident, the girl allegedly punched and kicked the boy, Ms. Summers said. Police took an incident report but will not file a criminal case with the DAs Office, Detective Maddox said. Mr. Larson said the family is currently meeting with professionals to determine whether his daughter is suffering from a psychological disorder that requires treatment. The family believes the girl is showing symptoms of autism, but she has not been diagnosed. We obviously dont want any other children being harmed either, Mr. Larson said. We as parents are doing everything we can for our daughter, and I think

the district is now being very proactive to prevent this from happening again. He said the school is attempting to resolve the problem by keeping the fighting children separated at all times and having a one-on-one aid monitor his daughter. Mr. Larson places some blame on the other children involved, stating that his daughter has reacted when she was being bullied. He believes the parents who are targeting his daughter are reacting like a vigilante group and are being extremely childish for passing out flyers outside of the school. According to Mike Bateman, director of student services for the Claremont Unified School District, the district is taking special measures in order to avoid future problems. The school and districts upmost priority is to maintain a safe campus, Mr. Bateman said. The principal, teachers and classified staff take student safety as our number one priority and because of all of their efforts I believe Oakmont is a safe campus. Ms. Summers said Tuesday that she will be meeting with District Superintendent Terry Nichols, Director of Human Resources Kevin Ward and Ms. Garrett when the district officials will explain how they plan to address the matter. I want to listen to their point of view and hopefully we can find a resolution and go from there, Ms. Summers said. Ms. Summers said parents may still attend Thursday nights Board of Education meeting to air their grievances, claiming his has been an on-going problem over the past 2 school years. Tony Krickl

A neighborhood turns on a light


by John Pixley

e need some love down here. Please give us some love! Well, the love has now been given. The new pedestrian light on Arrow Highway at Oakdale Drive between College Avenue and Claremont Boulevard was turned on and began working. Just as Id been told.
Yes, Ive been calling the city. And Ive been getting calls from the city, giving me updates. Really. It works. Our government at work. And now Im using the light, and it works. Wonderfully. It has been a long time coming. The lights went up in July, and there were the curb cuts and signs. But the lights and buttonsthe red light is triggered only by pedestrianswere covered with stubborn canvas, cardboard and knots. For weeks. When I first called the city, I was told that there was a problem with the company that was contracted to put the light on. Then get another company, I thought. But it was working. The process, that is. It actually had begun a year before, when I got the letter about a meeting with the city engineer about the proposed light, as well as the possibility of closing off Oakdale Drive at Arrow Highway. Included with the letter was an aerial photograph showing the proposed changes. After years of being frustrated with how difficult it is to cross Arrow in this area and to travel along Arrow in my wheelchair, I was most intrigued, and I was also fascinated with such changes being so graphically envisioned and then realized, so I went to the meeting. Thats where I heard the plea to give us some love. The us here are people who live south of Arrow Highway, particularly in this eastern section of Claremont. There has long been a feeling of being isolated from, if not also ignored by, the rest of the town, with Arrow being a virtual barrier or wall with its fast and nearly constant traffic. With it being so difficult to

observer
cross Arrow Highway into the rest of Claremont, there were calls, repeated at the meeting, for some sort of traffic calming, including different striping on the busy regional thoroughfare. The city had evidently heard these calls. In addition, a few people had been killed or injured when walking across Arrow at Oakdale. And, as the city noted, despite this fact and even after the crosswalk (but not the ped x-ing signs) had been removed, people kept crossing Arrow at this spot, rather than walk over to the light at Claremont Boulevard or College Avenue, on their way to and from the La West liquor store or College Park or perhaps the Montclair Plaza. Hence, the proposal and the letter and meeting regarding it. There was a bit of grumbling at the meeting when it turned out that islands or radically different striping werent an option on the county road, but the city could install the light and close off Oakdale Drive. Closing off Oakdale was something of a bonus. As was explained at the meeting, at which there were about 15 people gathered around a table in a room at the back of City Hall, a standard 4-way traffic light wouldnt work with Oakdale Drive, intersecting with Arrow from the south, being a significant distance from Elder Drive as it intersects with Arrow from the north. There were also other issues, such as vehicles turning into and out of Oakdale rendering the pedestrian light actually dangerous. (Who knew there was so much for the city engineer and planners to think about? I didnt.) So it was decided to block Oakdale at Arrow, leaving only the entrance on Mills Avenue. This was just fine with pretty much all of the Oakdale Drive residents. For years, cars and trucks had

sped up and down the street in order to avoid the traffic light where Arrow Highway intersects with Claremont Boulevard and Mills Avenue. It came up during the meeting that the use of Oakdale as a fast shortcut was especially alarming to the parents of young children. In fact, a few days after the meeting, a mother went doorto-door with a petition in favor of the closure. Indeed, the meeting turned out to be a swift kickoff, getting the ball really rolling. Over the next few months, the Traffic Commission held 2 hearings on the proposal. It scheduled a single hearing but then decided to invite people from a wider area to comment. Was there a concern that with Oakdale closed, Cucamonga Avenue would follow the same path as Oakdale and become a shortcut? (I suspect this was a moot concern with there being a sizable dip in that street.) Then there was the City Council hearing earlier this year. When the new lights and curb cuts and all were installed a couple months ago, in all their inoperable, almost ghostly splendor, it was actually some time after Oakdale Drive was closed off. I thought this was curiouswhy werent both done at the same time? but it made for a notably pleasant summer with a surprising number of children playing in the streets and Oakdale at last being the quiet street it should be. Pretty much. Last week, a car careened up Oakdale and drove right over the sidewalk closure. This was quite unusual, especially since the city placed cones along the closure. Before this, several cars drove over the closureincluding one driven by a friend of mine who visits regularly from L.A. and who asked me, Whats that thing at the end of the street? (Yes, the curb is painted red, but it is also slightly sloped, kind of like a driveway, presumably to allow for emergency vehicle access.) There may be some kinks to work out, and it took some time, but this is a light that was turned on not only in a neighborhood but very much by a neighborhood.

Local rule breakers

Dear Editor: Okay, Claremont, lets review. Gaspowered leaf blowers are banned in Claremont. Title 8 of the Municipal Code (health and safety) states that gasoline powered leaf blowers are prohibited in the city. It also states that 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. are the hours that electric leaf blowers can be used. It further states that Use of any type of leaf blower on any city owned or maintained property is prohibited. The school district disregards this (note that it is the health and safety section of the code), as well as the city itself, not to mention numerous yard maintenance people. I tried writing the school board, superintendent, city council and code enforcement people nearly a month ago. I got 2 responses, neither of which said anything substantive. This morning at 7:15 a.m., Condits front concrete area was being blown by a gasoline leaf blower. Last week, a city employee was towing a gasoline generator, into which was plugged an electric leaf blower, down the sidewalk at Larkin Park, doubly violating the municipal code. I am strongly in favor of this ban on gasoline leaf blowers for noise and air quality reasons. To see the school district and the city ignoring a regulation that is in place, a reasonable regulation, I find reprehensible. Residents, please talk to the yard maintenance people you employ to remind them that gas leaf blowers are not

Dear Editor: I saw Hamlet at Cal Poly Pomona, the night before it closed. We are lucky to have this theater company so nearby and so affordable (tickets were only $15). The play was staged in a small theater with room for an audience of only about 100 people. We were all close enough to see the sweat on Hamlet's face and the puzzlement in Ophelias eyes. The acting was strong, energetic and emotional. Robert Shields portrayal of Hamlet was wonderful. Hamlets famous speeches were well-orated and his demands to Ophelia to get thee to a nunnery were especially gripping. I know very little of Shakespeare and have not seen Hamlet before. Yet I recognized a few devices that obviously were not original to the play. A Cal Poly Post article said that the costumes were modern, but most of them they really were not. Some were con-

Great production, one reservation

temporary, but most of the principal characters, excluding Hamlet, wore early to mid-20th century jazz-era costumes. They looked great. But I wondered if the costumes were a deliberate allusion to pre-WWII politics or some other point that went over my head. This productions real distinction was Hamlets habit of writing on the floor in chalk. I thought at first it might become a distracting gimmick. But it worked well after all. A central point of the play is that Hamlet feigns madness to mislead his enemies. This production implies that his madness is not just an act. The chalk, along with Hamlets nearobsessive moving of chairs around the stage, were interesting presentations of his mental instability. He delivered his most famous line by writing on the floor, to be or not to be, pointing at it and saying, that is the question. As the play went on, Hamlet became increasingly disheveled and the chalk dust on his black clothes lent further to the portrayal of his madness.

Unfortunately for many would-be attendees, the Cal Poly Theatre Departments online reservation system is not functional. I made reservations through the website which told me that my tickets would be held at will-call. When my daughter and I arrived at the theater, we learned that the show was sold out, nobody had compiled the online reservations in several days, nor set aside tickets, nor even placed a message on the website explaining that online reservations are no longer accepted. We were second on the waiting list and were lucky enough to get seats 5 minutes before curtain. But most of the people we waited with did not get to see the play, even with their reservations. It was unprofessional, and the theatre department will be lucky to ever win back those patrons who made reservations but wasted their evenings hoping for last-minute no-shows. Congratulations to the actors, director and crew for an exciting, original production. I hope the theater department will correct its reservations procedure.

Sue S. Getts
Former 35-year Claremont resident Sue Starr Getts died in Oregon on September 11, 2010. Age 83, Mrs. Getts most recently resided at Bayberry Commons in Springfield, Oregon, having previously resided at the Willamette Oaks Retirement Apartments in Eugene, Oregon. Born to Delano Starr and Mary Wiley Starr on August 21, 1927 in Long Beach, Mrs. Getts attended Pomona College and earned her bachelors degree in 1948. After graduation, she moved to Hawaii and taught fourth grade at Punaho School for several years. She then attended the Katie Gibbs School in New York and worked for the president of the YMCA, followed by a return to California where she began working at IBM in the Bay Area. After her marriage to John S. Getts, MD, on January 29, 1955, Mrs. Getts became a homemaker and raised 3 sons and a daughter, all of whom graduated from Claremont High School. She later

nutritionist, active church member and community volunteer


returned to school and earned a masters degree in nutrition from Cal State Los Angeles in the early 1970s. This propelled her into a new career with Alpha Beta for which she served as nutritionist and home economist from 1974-82. In this capacity, she ran the grocery stores test kitchen and helped to develop new recipes. She also conducted outreach activities, giving presentations at local schools about nutrition and related subjects. At Alpha Beta, Mrs. Getts was highly influential in establishing the unit-pricing system in which a products price was broken down into priceper-unit, giving customers the opportunity to determine the most costefficient purchase. We used to joke that if life had been a little further down the road in the feminist movement, she would have been the first woman president of Alpha Beta, said longtime friend and former Claremont resident Mary Ellen Kilsby. They really appreciated her. ways welcoming, and always easy and comfortable to be around, said Ms. McManigal. Jil Stark, Mrs. Getts neighbor since 1965, appreciated the wise counsel of her decades-long friend. She could look at an issue from an objective point of view and encourage people not to get too overly upset or overly involved. She was a great friend in this way. Ms. Stark commented. And she really enjoyed hearing about other peoples livesthe book they just read, the trip they had just taken. She was a good listener and a great adviser; so willing to give time and personal attention to her friends. After her years in Claremont, Mrs. Getts and her husband moved to Las Vegas, followed by her 2003 move to Oregon to be near her family. Dr. Getts died in 1999. Though in declining health over the last several years, Mrs. Getts face would light up with joy when her grandchildren visited. Mrs. Getts is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law, David and Sarah Getts of Scottsdale, Arizona, Donald and Tami Getts of Santa Rosa and Roger and Diane Getts of Weed; her daughter and son-in-law, Claire and Jim Potter of Eugene, Oregon; and by her 7 grandchildren. A memorial service for Sue Getts will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday, October 9, 2010 at Claremont United Church of Christ.

Edith L. Cooper
A memorial service in the manner of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) for Pilgrim Place resident Edith L. Cooper will take place at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 10, 2010 in Decker Hall at Pilgrim Place. A reception will follow. Ms. Cooper died in the Health Services Center on October 1, 2010 after a very brief illness. A more complete account of Ms. Coopers life will be published in an upcoming edition of the COURIER.

While in Claremont, Mrs. Getts was an active member of the Claremont Methodist Church as well as the Claremont United Church of Christ. She also served on the board of directors for Mt. San Antonio Gardens, lending her skills with numbers and finance to the retirement organization. Longtime friends of Mrs. Getts noted how considerate she was, always generous and caring in conversation and gesture. Claremont resident Georgia McManigal recalled Mrs. Getts kindness when, years ago, she moved into a new home with several young children. There she was, with a full dinner for us, complete with lovely home-cooked blackberry cobbler. Thats the kind of person Sue was. Always thoughtful, al-

California Beer Festival coming to Claremont

eer connoisseurs will be happy to hear that the California Beer Festival is making its way to Claremont. The one-day event is scheduled for Saturday, October 16 just outside the Packing House in Village West.
About 30 beer booths will line the north and south sides of First Street between Oberlin and Cornell avenues. The beer vendors will offer craft beers from microbreweries around California. Each vendor will have about 3 or 4 different craft beers to sample, said event organizer Vincenzo Giammanco. Well have beer from San Diego to up north in Sierra Nevada. Participants can expect live music from 4 different bands, including Rey Fresco, Orlando Napier, the Blue Barron

Band and Claremonts own The Dogs. Food will be available for purchase from Eureka Burgers, which plans to open in the Packing House later this year, Tutti Mangia Italian Grill and Casablanca Mediterranean restaurant. Guests will have 5 hours to sample beers, food and music, with the event running from noon to 5 p.m. Event organizers are hoping to attract between 800 to 1000 people to the beer festival. The festival is really designed to help the local economy, Mr. Giammanco said. It will be right in front of the Packing House, an ideal location in downtown that will draw people from many surrounding cities. After the event, they will stick around and visit local businesses and restaurants in Claremont. The California Beer Festival has run successfully for 2 years in Ventura. If the event is successful in Claremont, the Festival may become a permanent annual fixture in the city.

Since alcohol will be served at the event, organizers are working to get discounted rates on taxi cab fares from the event and local hotels. Discounted designated driver tickets will also be sold to those who want to attend the festival but not drink. They will cost $25. The full list of participating brewers and Claremont businesses are: Dale Bros, Inland Empire, Bootleggers, Sam Adams, Guiness, CBF Brew, Stone, Wyders, Woodchuck, Firestone, Sierra Nevada, Jacks Pumpkin Spice Ale, The Big Cheese Pizza Co. & Brewery, Smokeys House of BBQ, Sudwerk, Craftsman, The Packinghouse Brewing Co., JT Schmids Restaurant & Brewery,

Chimay, Anacapa, Casablanca Bar & Grill, Eureka Burger. Hip Kitty, Espiaus, Omaha Jack's Grillhouse & Brewery, The Press Restaurant, The Packing House, Edible Arrangements, Craftsman Brewing Co., Doubletree Hotel, LoveSac, Heroes & Legends Bar & Grill, Village Marketing Group and, thankfully, Yellow Cab Co. General admission is for the event is $40. Tickets will be sold at Rhino Records, Hip Kitty or online at www.californiabeerfestival.com. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the non-profit Dyslexia Awareness Resource Center.

Candlelight Pavilion reaches their silver plateau

ore than 200 people attended a special black-tie celebration on Saturday night to mark this special 25th birthday.
The party featured a champagne reception, 4-course meal and highlights of both past and potentially future shows on the stage for its Silver Jubilee. More than 200 people attended the event that also featured an appearance by Candlelight Pavilion owner Ben Bollinger. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all youve done, Mr. Bollinger addressed the audience on Saturday. Many people told me to build in Glendora. But weve never received so much support as we have in Claremont. We came to Claremont to give these kids an opportunity. And we will continue to do more shows in the future. The Candlelight Pavilion originally opened on October 4, 1985 with the musical revue, Premiere Jubilee. The dinner theater was a joint venture for Mr. Bollinger and former Griswolds Hotel owner Sandy Sanford, who both penned a deal on the back of a napkin over dinner. In 1991, Mr. Bollinger became the sole owner of Candlelight Pavilion. Saturdays event was a family affair for the Bollingers as 4 generations of the family were present. Candlelight Pavilion general manager Mick Bollinger nearly teared up as he introduced members of his family in attendance. The general manager also thanked dinner theater staff, performers and season ticket holders for their contributions to the Candlelight for the past 25 years. Were really proud because weve been through changing ownership, different economic climates and changing city government and yet weve been able to beat those challenges and provide great entertainment that were really proud of, he said. The food and entertainment have kept us around, as well as partnering with organizations like IVRT. The entire thing is built around family and we hire people who are comfortable with our environment and we want them to stay here as long as they want to be part of the family. Performers from Centre Stage Inc., Citrus Singers from Citrus College, Inland Valley Repertory Theater and Karousel Kids graced the stage for the 3-hour show. Some of the actors from the Candlelight Pavilions first shows included Janice Lee, Michael Lopez, Beth Mendoza, Debbie Prutsman and Duane Thomas. The audience was treated to more than 20 musical performances featuring popular scores from popular productions such as Beauty and the Beast, Cats, Grease, Les Misrables, The Full Monty and

Wicked. Ontario residents Steve and Charlotte Kalla were thrilled to be a part of the dinner theaters historic anniversary. Their music is the tops, Mr. Kalla said. We love it because it is one of the few places left where you dress up. We get to 3 to 4 shows a year and really like the well-known Broadway shows that they do. John and Beverly Berdun, who sat with the Kallas during the champagne reception, agreed. Weve been coming for 6 years and we see between 6 and 7 shows a year, Mr. Berdun said. Weve attended a Buddy Holly show where everybody got up and started dancing. You dont have to drive into L.A.

to see a great show [because of the Candlelight Pavilion]. Claremont Mayor Linda Elderkin presented the Candlelight Pavilion with a certificate on behalf of the city. She also spoke about the dinner theater being a destination point in Claremont. We want you to know how much of an honor it is to celebrate what is becoming an ancient institution in Claremont, Ms. Elderkin said. Claremont is known for trees and PhDs but its also where the Candlelight Pavilion is. I cant tell how thrilled we are to be here to celebrate with you.

Local singers take the operatic stage


laremont resident John Dick retired from JPL 2 years ago as a world-recognized physicist, but is finding the stage a more compatible environment than the lab for the talent and passion hes exploring at this stage of life.

I realized a month or so ago that I actually identify more as a musician than as a physicist, which was kind of surprising, because Im a scientist with an international reputation, said Mr. Dick. Mr. Dick is one of 11 Claremont residents among a much larger cast who are performing Mozarts famous opera, The Magic Flute, as members of the Pomonabased Repertory Opera Company (ROC). Opening night at Pomonas First Christian Church last Saturday received a standing ovation, and performers will delight audience members with 2 additional shows, October 9 and 16. To date, the company has performed over a dozen fully staged operas throughout southern California. Theres a kind of grandeur coming across here. Im really part of something grand, Mr. Dick said of his experiences with the ROC, which also include singing in Elixir of Love in Pomonas Fox Theater and La Traviata last year. This is really something lovely. Pomona resident LizBeth Lucca founded the opera company in 1991 and serves as its well-respected artistic director. I really have to give LizBeth credit for putting the entire show together, the amount of time it takes, the professionalism and the warmth she brought to the show, commented Pomona College student Eddie Sayles who performs as second priest in the production. Mr. Sayles also sings in the Pomona College Choir and serves as co-president of the colleges Glee Club. A student and professional performer John Hansen, as Papageno, and Sashell Beck as Pamina cower after being disof both opera and acting, Ms. Lucca has covered by the villain Monostatos, on September 28 during rehearsal for The

Composed in 1791 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, The Magic Flute is a fairy tale opera, complete with a queen, prince, princess, dragon, spirits and other fantastical elements: love, worth-proving trials, heroism, magic and other-worldly realms. In Germany, within a year of its debut, the lauded opera celebrated its 100th performance, a milestone missed by Mozart who died 3 months after its first staging.

theyll recognize many of the melodies, said Ms. Lucca. The lead performers are extensively trained and experienced opera singers with award and credit lists a mile-long. Claremonters take the stage primarily in small roles, but join the cast with their own impressive singing history and talent. Lauren Jorgensen, for instance, a Claremont Community School of Music student and first spirit in the production, at age 13 has already received many accolades for her singing. She sang as the lead vocalist for the Upland Elementary School Jazz Band in sixth grade and received Chorister of the Year in 2008 from St. Marks Episcopal Church, whose choir she joined at age 8. I love to perform! exclaimed Lauren. Theres something about singing in front of an audience that is so much different than singing alone in your room. You get to see the people in the audience who appreciate the same type of music that I do. Lauren began voice lessons 3 years ago, studying under Christina Linton, Papagena in the production and chairperson of the voice department at the Claremont Community School of Music. With a wide age-range represented in The Magic Flute, from teenage Lauren to senior Mr. Dick, and everything in between, Ms. Lucca is thrilled with the

companys multigenerational composition. Were not taking a high school kid and putting make up on them and saying, Heres an old guy. We have an old guy, she said. Mr. Dick, age 71 and the eldest cast member hailing from Claremont, is wonderfully pleased with his Magic Flute associates of all ages. Its a very rich social environment, with everyone working so hard to put on the show. Everybody respects everyone else and is ready to give fellow performers support, said Mr. Dick, also the tenor soloist at Pomonas Pilgrim Congregational Church. To be able to spend time with talents like this is a lot of fun. Im having the time of my life.

HARVEY MUDD MAKES FORBES TOP 10 Forbes.com recently published its Top Ten List of most expensive colleges and universitites in the nation and Harvey Mudd College placed 7th out of 10. Forbes puts Harvey Mudds annual cost at $53,588 (Tuition and fees: $40,390; room and board: $13,198.) Forbes goes on to state, With an enrollment of about 200 students, [Harvey Mudd] is part of the Claremont University Consortium, a group of seven schools located near Los Angeles. Its expensive, but 80% of all students receive financial aid, and 30% receive merit awards. The focus at HMC is math and science, with a dose of liberal arts. The number one spot went to Sarah Lawrence College in New York with a total annual cost of $57,556 (Tuition and fees: $43,556; room and board: $14,000.) Harvey Mudd was the only California university to make the top ten.

ITS A SMALL WORLD John and Naomi Howland of Claremont were taking a driving tour of Virginia over the summer and stopped in Monticello, Thomas Jeffersons former home near Charlottesville. Just before Mr. and Ms. Howland began a docentled tour of the grounds, the tour guide asked where visitors were from. Upon learning that the Howlands were from Claremont, the docent replied that she had lived there and taught at Sycamore Elementary. Not only was the docent, Olivia Ellis, from Claremont, but had taught Mr. and Ms. Howlands two daughters when they were students at Sycamore some 20 years ago. According to the Howlands, Ms. Ellis sends

warm greetings to all her friends here in Claremont. She can be reached through The Docent Program at Monticello, Thomas Jefferson Foundation, PO Box 316 Charlottesville, VA 22902.
Until next time, Sammy
