Dear Editor: Here is the letter Golden State Water would write if they could tell you the truth: Dear Claremont residents, We regret to inform you that at our current rates, we will only make a 4 percent profit. In case you didnt know, we are entitled to a 9 percent profit, and therefore must raise rates. Theres no reason to point fingers because we are both to blame. You are part of the problem because you keep using less water. If you dont use water, we dont make money. We are to blame because we cant control costs and are going to spend $63 million more to provide you the same service. Unfortunately for you, we have no incentive to reduce our expenditures because the more we spend, the more we profit. Please understand that our bonuses and careers are riding on us squeezing every last penny out of you. Anyhoo, if its any consolation, we will be sending you some free showerheads. Sincerely, Your friends at Golden State Water

Golden State Water (GSW) is using a combination of lies and irrelevant facts in order to confuse, distract and create doubt among the community. Their objective is to keep the discussion away from rising water rates and instead blame us and our city council for the current situation. They accused our city council of being passive in the ratedeciding process. They threatened us with higher property taxes should we buy back our water system. They blame us for using too much water. But there is only one talking pointwhy are rates so high and why are they going up so much? There is only one reason why GSW is requesting rate increases and it is stated clearly in their application to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). At current water rates, their rate of return will only be 4 percent. However, the CPUC has authorized GSW to receive 9 percent. They were promised a 9 percent profit and now they are coming to collect. The system is nothing less than legalized mafia. They cite 5 reasons for the need to increase rates: 1. reduced sales, 2. increased general office expenses, 3. increased operating costs, 4. increased income taxes, 5. increased maintenance expenses.

This rationale highlights 2 fundamental problems. One is that we are being penalized for reducing our water usage. They state that predicted sales for 2013 are 13 percent lower than 2011. Claremont is partly to blame for this deficit because we have reduced our water usage by over 20 percent over the last 3 years. The second problem is that there is no incentive to control costs and improve efficiency. The more they spend on operating costs, raises, benefits and outsourcing, the more profit they will make. It is all part of the costs they are entitled to profit from. We have a broken system that does not incentivize lower rates or lower usage, overseen by an inept and/or complicit regulatory watchdog that has left us at the mercy of a dishonest, manipulative, profit-hungry corporation. It is no surprise that the only proposals they discuss are around how GSW can guarantee a 9 percent rate of return, regardless of how much water we use. This will only lead to mandatory rate increases that we will have no say in. There is no other viable option but to get our water back.

able to me that we should align our speed limits to the standards set in order to make those limits enforceable, said Commissioner Chuck Freitas at the June meeting. Several residents have voiced concerns about the proposed increases, particularly those to streets like College Avenue between Arrow Highway and First Street an area notoriously busy with school traffic and activity. While recognizing these concerns, Ms. Mustafa assured that laws regarding speed limits in school zones when children are present would still remain. Regardless of a designated speed limit, drivers will be required to drive 25 mph when children are going to or from school and during the noon recess, as mandated by state law. The council will also begin the process of reclassifying Scottsbluff Drive from a minor arterial roadway to a local roadway. If it goes unchallenged, the speed limit on Scottsbluff will be raised to 25 mph. The speed limit will remain unchanged during the reclassification process. In addition to the proposed speed changes, the council will review an agreement for services from the Chamber of Commerce through 2014 and an amendment to its criteria and procedures regarding historical property contracts. The city council will meet in closed session at 5:15 p.m. for a conference with legal counsel relating to anticipated litigation on one potentional case, according to the agenda. A closed report will follow closed session before the regular

Council to set speed limits to align with state standards

he Claremont City Council will vote on proposed speed increases to 10 city streets at 6:30 p.m. at the City Council Chamber this Tuesday, October 9.

Speed limit increases of 5 mph are recommended for the following streets: Street Street Existing Existing New New 30 mph 30 mph 30 mph 35 mph 50 mph 35 mph 30 mph 30 mph 30 mph 30 mph

American Avenue: Indian Hill to Mills Avenue 25 mph College Avenue: Arrow to First Mountain: San Jose to Arrow Mountain: Base Line to Thompson Creek Mt. Baldy Road: Padua to East City Limit Pomello Drive: Mills to Padua Radcliffe Drive: Indian Hill to Mills San Jose: College Avenue to Mills Scripps Drive: Indian Hill to Mountain Scripps Drive: Mountain to Towne 25 mph 25 mph 30 mph 45 mph 30 mph 25 mph 25 mph 25 mph 25 mph

Speed limit changes are needed in order to comply with state standards, according to Loretta Mustafa, senior engineer with the city of Claremont, in a recent report. The state of CaliforCITY nia requires that the speed limit on a COUNCIL street be as close as possible to the 85th percentile, or the speed that 85 percent of the traffic is actually driving either at or slightly below, regardless of the set speed limit. A recent Radar Speed Survey suggested that many of the citys streets are not in compliance with current standards. As a result, speed citations have not been upheld in traffic court, according to Ms. Mustafa, who told commissioners over the summer that changes are needed in order to enforce the law. The update is required to allow radar enforcement on these streets. The increases received unanimous support from the Claremont Traffic and Transportation Commission in June. I dont like increasing the speed limit in many of the areas being discussed. However, if the current limits are not enforceable in the courts, then it is reason-

League of Women Voters makes recommendations on ballot measures

he League of Women Voters of the Claremont Area will present the pros and cons of the 11 state ballot measures in the meeting room of the Claremont Library on Wednesday, October 17 from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m.

Speakers will present the basic content of the measures, as well as reasons to support or oppose the measures. There will be opportunity to ask questions. As part of the voter service work, the League will present about a dozen pros-and-cons sessions over the next few weeks to various groups in the area. For voting information go to www.lavote.net or www.cavote.org . The LWV-Claremont area has made recommendations on proposotions, which are listed below. YES Prop 30: Schools and Local Public Safety Protection Act Proposition 30 begins to move California toward financial stability and adequate funding for all the services we want from our government; we cant continue to cut vital public services like schools and public safety. This measure will provide some much-needed income from a temporary increase in income tax rates for the wealthy and a modest temporary sales tax increase. The plan is part of a balanced approach to eliminating our deficit that includes $8 billion in cuts, $6 billion in new revenues and $2.5 billion in loans, deferrals, etc. this year. Proposition 30 also guarantees a stable source of funding for counties to pay for their new public safety responsibilities such as housing lowlevel prisoners and providing substance abuse treatment.

NO Prop 31: Government Performance and Accountability Act Proposition 31 is based on good intentions and has some pieces that, taken alone, the League could support. However, Prop 31 has several significant flaws. There are questions about whether or not the provisions allow local governments to suspend state environmental requirements. What is clear is that there will be significant legal uncertainty, and years of litigation. In addition, the measure prescribes the specific manner of state and local government budgeting and puts this process into the state constitution. Prop 31 has other questionable provisions, such as establishing a significant shift of power over appropriations to the governor at times of fiscal emergency. NO Prop 32: Special Exemptions Act This measure is not the campaign finance reform measure its proponents say it is. Proposition 32 promises political reform but is really designed by special interests to help themselves and harm their opponents. It looks like a campaign finance reform measure but unfairly targets one set of large campaign donors while giving other donors unlimited power. Its ban on payroll deductions for political giving will affect unions but not corporations, and even the restriction it places on contributions to candidates by corporations is full of loophole exemptions. It does not fix the problem of money in politics; Super PACs and independent expenditure committees will continue to spend without limitation. YES Prop 34: SAFE California Act The SAFE California Act will replace the death penalty in California with a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. Convicted killers will

stay in prison for the rest of their lives, eliminating the possibility of executing an innocent person in California. This will save over $100 million every year, because the court and incarceration costs are so much higher for prisoners at risk for a death penalty. The $100 million savings will be allocated over the next 4 years to pay for increased investigation of unsolved rape and murder cases. Convicted killers will be required to work and pay restitution into a victims compensation fund. YES Prop 40: Referendum on Redistricting We strongly urge a YES vote on this referendum on the state Senate maps drawn by the independent Citizens Redistricting Commission. The question on a referendum is not intuitive; it asks if you want to retain the new law or, in this case, the maps drawn by the Citizens Redistricting Commission. So vote yes to affirm the maps drawn by the Citizens Redistricting Commission. Yes, in support of the Commission. Yes, to validate the open, transparent process. Yes to retain fair districts. No Recommendation on the Other Measures on this Ballot Adequate revenue to provide for the public good is critically needed. The League supports Prop 30 on this ballot as the best way to provide some relief from the endless cutting of vital government services. We see some merit in the following 2 measures, Props 38 and 39, but have taken a neutral position on them because of their earmarking of revenues.

Friday, September 28 College students are asked to be on alert for a suspected prowler last seen at Pomona Colleges Lyon Court Dorm, 173 E. Second St., Friday around 1:15 a.m. A resident advisor spotted the man fumbling through a backpack in the stairwell of the complex next to a computer room. The resident advisor did not recognize him as a student. When asked if he needed help, the man said no and immediately took off. Officers were unable to locate him. He is described as a Hispanic male in his mid- to late-30s with dark, buzzed hair and facial hair, wearing dark clothing and a dark-colored ball cap. Saturday, September 29 A Claremont man seen lying in the middle of the center divider at Claremont Boulevard and Ninth Street caught the attention of passersby late Saturday night. When police arrived at the scene, they found Everett Merrill, 22, kneeling in the gutter on the east side of the median with one shoe one and one shoe off, according to Lieutenant Shelly Vander Veen. Mr. Merrill was seen stumbling into the north lane and attempting to get into the back of a car stopped at the light. The driver told police that they had no idea who Mr. Merrill was. Mr. Merrill admitted to police that he had consumed a lot of whiskey and was arrested for public intoxication. He was held until sober and later released. Sunday, September 30 A Pomona couple under the influence of methamphetamine drew unnecessary attention to themselves when they decided to start knocking on the doors of a series of south Claremont residences at 3:20 a.m. Christopher Hansen, 21, and Rosemarie Moreno, 19, were spotted at BC Cafe and arrested. **** A phone-snatching couple wanted for several crimes in the Claremont area over the last week is finally behind bars. Ashley Peters, 20, and Brian Beauchamp, 22, of Corona, are being held for 2 counts of petty theft and one count of robbery. The first incident took place on Thursday, September 27, near Mills Avenue and Ninth Street. Ms. Peters jumped out of a black Honda Civic and asked to use the victims cellphone. When the victim agreed, Ms. Peters got into the car and Mr. Beauchamp drove off. The same incident happened the following day, but in this case the victim attempted to get the phone back from Ms. Peters. In the struggle, the victim fell and severely broke his arm. In the final incident, Ms. Peters stole a phone from a 16-year-old walking on Bonita Avenue near Yale. This time, police caught up with Ms. Peters and Mr. Beauchamp at Towne Avenue and Bangor Street in Pomona. The 16-year-old victim positively identified the pair, who was found in possession of her cell phone. Because of the injury involved in the second crime, the petty theft charge was increased to one of robbery. **** A grocery-shopping trip did not end well for a 20-year-old Altadena resident who attempted to take off with 2 bottles of Hennessy Cognac and a toothbrush. Laniea Robertson fought with Super King security guards, biting one in the leg, but was unable to get away. She was held at the market until Claremont Police could whisk her away to jail. Because of the bite mark given to the officerwhich broke skin, according to Lt. Vander VeenMs. Robertson was additionally charged with assault. ****

A male 9-1-1 caller claimed to Claremont police that his girlfriend was punching out windows Sunday night. When police arrived, they found the female with cuts to her arm and a contusion to her hip. She complained of pain to her head and was transported to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. While the male claimed he had suffered from a bloody upper lip, the officer reported not seeing any blood. Based on statements from both parties, it appeared that the couple had gotten into an argument regarding text messages the female has supposedly been receiving. The argument progressed into a wrestling match, which ended up on the floor. The female claims she had broken a window in an attempt to call for help. After speaking with both involved, police arrested the 25-year-old male from Rancho Cucamonga for battery. Monday, October 1 Police are investigating a successful PO Box theft and several attempted break-ins at the Claremont Post Office, 140 Harvard Ave. Sometime between Friday, September 28 and Monday, October 1, an unknown tool was used in an attempt to pry open 6 PO boxes that were supposed to be in a secured area, according to Lt. Vander Veen. No entry was made, but damage was done to the boxes. During the same time, in a different location of the post office, one box was successfully opened, and the victim believes several checks were stolen. Investigation continues. Any information should be reported to the Claremont Police at 399-5411. Tuesday, October 2 A trail of blood led Claremont police to their suspect Tuesday night. Officers were contacted about a man allegedly yelling at and harassing customers at King Kong Sushi, 300 N. Indian Hill Blvd. Though the man had left the loca-

tion before police could contact him, he didnt stay hidden for long as he had left behind a trail of blood droplets for police to follow. Austin Garza, 24, of West Covina, was located near the rear of the business with a bandaged pinky and blood on his hands and shoes. He refused medical treatment and was unsure how he had received the injury. It was determined that Mr. Garza was under the influence of alcohol. He was held for public intoxication and later released. Wednesday, October 3 A 37-year-old woman was busted for the possession and alleged sale of PCP at the Claremont Lodge Wednesday afternoon. An ongoing investigation has been occurring at the Claremont Lodge over the last month regarding the sales of PCP by an occupant of one of the rooms. On Sunday morning, a 34-year-old man associated with the room was arrested after being found under the influence of the hard drug. On Wednesday evening, his girlfriend, the primary suspect who was also staying in the room, was served a search warrant and was arrested. The womans 5 children were found to also be staying in the room, with ages ranging from one to 15. In addition to the drug charges, the man and the woman are also being charged with child endangerment, according to Lt. Vander Veen. **** A car thief may have gotten away from the scene of the crime early Wednesday morning, but his troubles arent over. Police set up a perimeter near Foothill and Towne after the driver of a stolen Honda Civic fled on foot. Though the thief was not found, he left behind a meth pipe and other evidentiary items in the car. DNA tests are currently underway. The thief is described as a Hispanic male, about 5-feet-8-inches tall, weighing an estimated 150 pounds.

Disinvestment in higher education at a critical stage

heres good news and theres bad news in higher education.

In bad news, higher education in California has been ravaged by cutbacks in the wake of the recession. In fact, support for the states colleges began slipping long before the recession hit. The good news is while it will take time to reverse the long downward spiral of Golden State colleges, it can be done. That was the message Jack Scott, who retired last month after 14 years as California Community Colleges Chancellor, delivered at Claremont Graduate University this past Tuesday. His talk, Californias Disinvestment in Higher Education, was CGUs 29th

annual Howard R. Bowen Lecture. The event drew an array of educators and CGU education students as well as representatives from the states beleaguered community college system. Mr. Scott began his presentation with a joke about his status as a CGU Scholar in Residence for the 2012-2013 school year. I was worried it might sound a little pretentious, he said. I didnt know if I was suddenly supposed to start wearing a tweed jacket and smoking a pipe. The details of the states educational woes he next launched into, however, were not a cause for laughter. Mr. Scott spoke of the challenges facing the 3 prongs of higher education in

School board endorses Prop 30, salutes outgoing CEF president

embers of the Claremont Unified School District Board of Education have unanimously voted to lend their support to Proposition 30.
At their Thursday meeting, each board member expressed frustration with the failure of state CUSD legislators to come up with BOARD a meaningful solution to Californias education funding crisis. While Governor Jerry Browns tax initiative is far from a permanent fix, it does buy the district time for maintaining crucial programs, said board member Sam Mowbray. I feel I have no alternative but to support this resolution, added board member Hilary LaConte. The vote came after a brief report on Proposition 30, which will be on the ballot this November, by CUSD assistant superintendent of business services Lisa Shoemaker. Ms. Shoemaker cited a few of the grim figures that have spurred the boards support of the initiative, which aims to raise taxes for Californians who earn $250,000 or more annually for the next 7 years. Proposition 30 would also raise the state sales tax by a quarter-cent for the next 4 years. If the tax initiative passes, it will net between $6 and $9 billion per year, Ms. Shoemaker noted. If it fails, K-12 schools will almost immediately be hit by a series of mid-year trigger cuts totaling $6 billion. California schools, including those in Claremont, stand to lose between $440 and $470 per pupil. Ms. Shoemakers report was followed by an appeal by Joe Tonan, Sumner Elementary School teacher and past president of the Claremont Faculty Association, urging the board to unanimously endorse Proposition 30. Claremont, he reminded the board, has

You, the board, know, and I trust the community knows, that in the Claremont Unified School District there is no more fat to cut. If there was any before, that was cut away years ago.
Joe Tonan Sumner Elementary teacher, past Claremont Faculty Association president

cut $4.5 million from its education budget within the past 4 years. Should the tax initiative fail, he warned, the district will have to make an additional $3.1 million in cuts. This will have a huge impact. If Proposition 30 does not pass, the board will be faced with fiscal decisions like you have never faced before, he said, noting worst-case scenarios such as a 3week reduction in the school year and a precipitous rise in class sizes. You, the board, know, and I trust the community knows, that in the Claremont Unified School District there is no more fat to cut. If there was any before, that was cut away years ago, Mr. Tonan said. In the last few years, it has been muscle, tissue and bone that have been sliced away. As an example of the damage to the CUSD budget in recent years, he shared that the size of freshman math classes at CHS has risen from 20 students to 37 students, precluding the kind of individualized instruction that comes with a smaller student-to-teacher ratio. Mr. Stark, earlier this year, you rightly said that teachers cannot continue to do

more with less. When cuts continue and continue, we will do less with less. We are at that point now, Mr. Tonan said. The CFAs current president David Chamberlain, a Claremont High School English teacher and debate coach, also spoke up at the meeting. Its time that CUSD made a more significant contribution to the health premiums of Claremont teachers, he said. This year, the district made a one-time agreement to pay more than they have in past years toward employee health plans, in acknowledgement of the austerities CUSD staffers have faced in recent years. That commitment needs to be made permanent, he said. Any cost of living adjustments employees have received for the past 20 years have been far exceeded by inflation, Mr. Chamberlain emphasized. In fact, in the wake of the recession, there have been no such adjustments. Healthcare premiums have been skyrocketing as well, he noted. Its a situation that is taking a distinct toll on Claremont faculty. More and more of your teachers are taking a second, part-time job to make ends meet, he said. Mr. Chamberlains comments were in response to a specific agenda item, the ratification of a new health care trust in which CUSD will participate called the Voluntary Employee Benefits Association (VEBA). A healthcare trust, Ms. Shoemaker explained, is a pool of school districts that have joined to leverage their purchasing power. The schools previous healthcare pool recently dissolved after the largest district in the association pulled out of the trust. Full-time employees will see no changes at this time to their health care premiums, Ms. Shoemaker explained. Some part-time instructors will pay more than they previously did for healthcare, she said, while others will pay less, depending on how many family members they wish to cover. Both the board and Mr. Chamberlain

thanked Ms. Shoemaker and her team for the time they put in while scrambling to find a new healthcare trust with the most competitive prices and the best benefits. Mr. Chamberlain also thanked Kevin Ward, assistant superintendent of human resources, and his team for going out to the school sites and working with the employees to ensure a smooth transition to their new healthcare plans. Apparently, delicious baked goods are worth a thousand words. On behalf of the CFA, Mr. Chamberlain presented Ms. Shoemaker, Mr. Ward and other district employees with boxes of treats from Some Crust Bakery in a show of appreciation for their efforts. Along with the cautionary financial notes, there was also cause for accolades on the board meeting agenda. The board welcomed and swore in Marantha Croomes, a Claremont High School senior who will serve as a nonvoting student board member for the 2012-2013 school year. They also bid a fond adieu to Liz Weigand, outgoing president of the Claremont Educational Foundation (CEF). Ms. Weigand was recognized for her outstanding efforts in raising funds to help support Claremont schools. CEF provides crucial funding for art and music instruction in the local elementary schools, and funds technology at El Roble and Claremont and San Antonio high schools. There are a number of people who strive to make Claremont better, and Id like to say that Liz Weigand is queen among these, Mr. Stark said. Teams from Condit and Mountain View elementary schools also reported on progress toward their respective educational goals, known as the Single School Plans for Student Achievement. More on their areas of progress and areas they need to work on will be included in a future edition of the COURIER.

Indian Hill Boulevard: The spinal cord of Claremont

by John Neiuber, president, Claremont Heritage

t is only fitting that the Claremont Heritage 30th annual Home Touron October 14will focus on Indian Hill Boulevard or what Judy Wright called The Spinal Cord of Claremont. It has played a part in the long history of the city. The neighborhood of focus for the Home Tour is bordered by Harrison on the south and Foothill to the north. This Historical Claremont neighborhood is known for its canopy of elm trees, its eclectic architectural styles and is one of the most well-known Claremont streets to residents and visitors alike.

The boulevard derives its name from the mesa that lies northeast of the intersection of Indian Hill and Foothill boulevards. Travel north on Indian Hill and the mesa is clearly visible to the east at Via Zurita Street. This was home to the Native Americans who first inhabited Claremont and what is now the Claremont Golf Course and Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden. The Indians were decimated by smallpox and in 1883 the survivors moved from the area to reservations near Palm Springs. The mesa remains largely undeveloped and open because of its special uses. It was along Indian Hill where the earliest settlers staked their claims. What is now Memorial Park was one of the points of Claremonts origins. In 1837, most of the present city became part of the Rancho San Jose. One of the owners of the rancho was Ygnacio Palomares. His sister, Maria Barbara Palomares de Alvarado, and her family lived in an adobe house at El Alisal, what is now the park, which at the time was just north of the rancho boundary. Later, the first Anglo settler, William Tooch Martin, filed a claim for 156 acres north of the park, near Eleventh Street and Indian Hill Boulevard. Recognized by many

as a mountain man, it is little-known that Mr. Martin served on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors from 1887 to 1889, and has the distinction of being the only person east of Kellogg Hill to do so. In 1884, Henry Austin Palmer bought 60 acres from Tooch Martin, along with the present Memorial Park site, from Charles French. Mr. Palmer built a house at Al Alisal that replaced the adobe built by the Alvarado family and lived in by Charles French. The structure was 3 Victorian cottages joined together to make one house. Later, the park site, then an orange grove, was purchased by Herman and Bess Garner, both graduates of Pomona College. Mr. Garner was the inventor of an air cleaner for truck engines and a successful businessman, His business, Vortox, still operates further south on Indian Hill Boulevard at Santa Fe Street. In 1926-27, the Garners built a 5000-square-foot home, one of the largest residences at the time, which remains today as a fine example of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture and the centerpiece of Memorial Park, as well as the home of Claremont Heritage. When Claremont was first settled, the boulevard ran south from Indian Hill and Mesa Avenue, now Foothill Boulevard, became a dirt path at Tooch Martins house and then continued south to Harrison Avenue. The name of the original boulevard that ran from Holt Boulevard to Harrison Street was Alexander Avenue. It was named in 1884 after S.T. Alexander, the vicepresident of the Pomona Land and Water Company. Although Alexander Avenue and Indian Hill did not connect, maps of 1887 were published showing that

Alexander Avenue extended all the way north of Foothill Boulevard in an attempt to bring settlers into the area. Indian Hill Boulevard was paved in the 1920s, but drivers still had to make a left at Harrison and then a right to go north on Indian Hill. Contrary to popular belief, Indian Hill Boulevard, north of Harrison, has always been so named. It was not until the early 1960s that Alexander Avenue was changed to Indian Hill, unifying the southern and northern sections under one name. It was at this time that Indian Hill Boulevard made its Millard Sheets connection, when the famous artist and architect designed the bend in the road at Harrison that remains today. Over the years and through various iterations of the City General Plan, management of the traffic circulation system has been debated and revised. During the discussion of the 1970 General Plan, a proposal emerged to widen Indian Hill north of Foothill. Fearing the possible widening of the boulevard between Harrison and Foothill, residents let their voices be heard. The city council voted to widen the boulevard north of Foothill, but to keep 2 lanes between Harrison and Foothill. This move proved to be beneficial to the entire community. It protected the historic neighborhood in its original state and scale. It saved the homes on Indian Hill from having a street at their doorsteps. It preserved the pedestrian access to the Village, the park, schools, churches and the Colleges. It protected and enhanced the small- town feel for which Claremont is known. In a society oftentimes plagued with an out with the old and in with the new mentality, it is a source of pride in Claremont that we preserve. We preserve the important things, whether they be houses, institutions of learning, art, open spaces, trees or streets. We strive to be good stewards of the city and that which we have inherited. Indian Hill Boulevard has persevered, starting in its infancy as a path, to a dirt road, to a paved boulevard. It has grown to become the symbolic center of our city, the strong back-bone of our heritage.

the state. These included steep spikes in tuition at Cal State and UC schools. Much of his talk centered on the state of community colleges, however, given his expertise in the area. Mr. Scott emphasized that its vital for the state to keep its community colleges operating, because they provide a stepping-stone to education and success for financially disadvantaged students. Mr. Scott delivered a slide presentation reiterating some of the more disturbing trends that have emerged since the 20082009 school year, during which time $809 million or 12 percent of the total operating budget has been cut from the California Community Colleges system. Community college course selections have been reduced by 24 percent, to the point where students are being turned away, while non-credit course offerings have shrunk by 38 percent. As a result, enrollment in the states community colleges has slipped by more than 485,000 students in just 3 academic years. Should Proposition 30 pass, he reminded the audience, community colleges in California would receive $210 million in additional funds in 2012-13. While much of that money would be used to pay off deferments, the increased funding would net an additional 20,000 seats in community college classrooms. Should the tax initiative fail, community colleges stand to lose more than the $210 million promised by the governor. They will face a series of mid-year trigger cuts totaling $338 million. Some 180,000 fewer students will be served as colleges are forced to redline more course offerings. Between tuition hikes, class cuts and an increase in unprepared high school graduates, the college graduation rate in in the state is slipping, Mr. Scott noted. Additionally, California students are increasingly seeking refuge in out-of-state colleges, he said. For the first time, more students are leaving California for 4-year

colleges than are coming here from other states. There are projections that by 2025, 41 percent of jobs in the state will require a college degree. At the rate were going today, only 35 percent of Californians will have the necessary training and credentials, the former chancellor said. The only job growth happening in America today are those jobs requiring higher education, he said. Thats why developing nations like China and India are pouring money into education. They know that in a global economy, you have to educate your personnel. An investment in education comes with a great pay-off, according to Mr. Scott. He cited a recent University of California study that found that for every dollar the state invests in a student, there is a $4.50 return. The return is the product of higher earnings resulting in higher tax revenue, as well as a reduction in the need for social programs ranging from unemployment to welfare to imprisonment. Causes have long history How did the state get to this point? According to Mr. Scott, support for California education began slipping in 1978 with the passage of Proposition 13, which seriously limited the amount of property taxes the state could impose. The change, seen as a boon by voters, caused an enormous decline in school funding, much of which is derived from property taxes. Funding for education, and state funding as a whole, began to shrink further with the 1994 passage of the Three Strikes Law in California. Under its terms, any person who commits 3 felonies is sentenced to life imprisonment. Since the laws enactment, the number of people imprisoned in California has grown by 8 times, Mr. Scott said. Safety in the state, he asserted, has not increased. The financial toll of overzealous imprisonment has been devastating, according to Mr. Scott. The cost of maintaining a person in a state prison for one year is $45,000. Over the course of 25

years, that figure rises to $1 million. Its time for those in higher education to speak up, he said. Educators often abstain from politics, but weve got to desert our books for a little while and go to the legislators and say we need more money for higher education, he said. Along with emphasizing that California colleges need to become more efficient, Mr. Scott advocated for the passage of Governor Jerry Browns Proposition 30, a tax initiative that would bring in an estimated $6 to $9 billion annually to fund education in the state. Should the measure pass, 11 percent of revenue collected would go to fund the community college system. Proposition 30 may be a Band-Aid, but we need to stop bleeding some way, somehow, Mr. Scott said. He also advocated for the passage of Proposition 36, which would limit the

types of crimes that can be considered a strike toward a penalty of life imprisonment to those that are serious or violent. With fewer classes, higher tuition and less support services like child care and financial aid, times are hard for todays college students. Nonetheless, Mr. Scott who holds a PhD in history from Claremont Graduate University and a Master of Divinity from Yale University remains convinced that higher education is worth the sacrifice. Its about math, he said. High school graduates earn an average of $27,122 annually, while those with a college degree garner $52,248 per year. The salary for someone with a graduate degree is even higher, $74,423. Youll earn a million dollars more if you stay in school, he said.

Margaret Edwards-Brown
Mother, Jungian analyst, music lover
Margaret Edwards-Brown, a longtime Claremonter, died on September 27, 2012 at the Mount San Antonio Gardens retirement community, where she had lived for the last 10 years. Ms. Edwards-Brown was born on July 5, 1924 in McLouth, Kansas to Harold and Ellwyn Steeper. The daughter of a banker and a homemaker, she grew up with one younger brother and a proud family legacy. Ms. Edwards-Brown was the great-niece of Orville and Wilbur Wright, the inventors of the airplane. She knew Orville throughout her youth and was quite proud of her famous uncles, participating in many Wright Brothers events throughout her life. As a college freshman, Ms. Edwards-Brown left McLouth for Baldwin, Kansas, where she attended Baker University. When her family moved to Lawrence, Kansas, she transferred to Kansas University, where she graduated with a bachelors degree in music education. While at Kansas University, she met her first husband, Robert Woolf Edwards, who was studying to be a physician. They were married in 1946, with Uncle Orville Wright in attendance, and had their first child Paul in 1948, followed by a second child, Cynthia, in 1952. They moved west later that year, first to San Diego and then, in 1954, to west Los Angeles, where they lived for the next 8 years. In 1962, they moved inland to Claremont, where Dr. Edwards became one of the physicians for the Claremont Colleges. Ms. Edwards-Brown had a lifelong love of music, from classical to jazz. She enjoyed singing and playing piano, and delighted in performing with her husband and 2 children in a barbershop quartet known as The Edchords. The Edwards family also enjoyed traveling and once spent an entire summer touring through the United States and Canada in their RV. Faith was also central to Ms. Edwards-Browns life. She was an original member of the Claremont Methodist church until 1970, when her spiritual interests led her to the Quakers (Religious Society of Friends), of which she was a core member for the rest of her life. Dr. Edwards died at 56 in 1981. By that time, Ms. Edwards-Brown was an active Jungian analyst, having attended Claremont Graduate University and Pitzer College for her masters degree in educational psychology and received certification through the C. G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles. She had a private practice until 2002, counseling clients in Claremont and Los Angeles. Ms. Edwards-Brown traveled avidly, from the Galapagos Islands to Europe, and even studied briefly at the Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland. In October of 1990, she met the next love of her life, Robert James Sidford Brown, in a folk dance group. They wed on February 13, 1993 and remained happily married for the rest of her life. Mr. Brown worked in research as a physicist with Chevron for 33 years. Since retirement, he has worked in research with colleagues at the University of Bologna, Italy. The couple lived in Claremont until moving to Mt. San Antonio Gardens in 2002. Ms. Edwards-Brown continued to live an active life up until the very end, traveling this past June to Dayton, Ohio to attend a commemoration of the centennial of Wilbur Wrights Death. My mother was a person of many dimensions, her son Paul said. She had a rich life full of discovery, love and growth. Ms. Edwards-Brown is survived her husband, Bob Brown, by her 2 children, Paul and Cynthia Edwards, and by her grandchildren, Brian and Leana Edwards. Services will be held on October 20 at 2 p.m. at the Claremont Friends Meeting House, 727 Harrison Ave., Claremont.

Marcia Louise Osborne

Homemaker, avid card player
Marcia Louise Marcie Osborne died peacefully on Wednesday, August 29, 2012 in Fort Worth, Texas with family members by her side. She was 86. Ms. Osborne was born April 15, 1926 to Keith and Gladys Huntwork in Riverside, California. Her father worked in a cement plant and her mother owned a small local eatery.

As Robert and Henry J. went through local schools, Ms. Osborne made sure to be there for sports and school functions. Between work and an early marriage, Ms. Osborne had left school early.

LA Galaxy kickstarts popular youth soccer clinic

he professional soccer team Los Angeles Galaxy hosted a Claremont clinic on Wednesday, with more than 200 youth players between ages 5 and 14 turning up to receive world class coaching. The event signified the continuing efforts of the Claremont American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) and the LA Galaxy to develop talent and promote health in children of all ages.
Present at the event was Clint Mathis, first-year development academy coach and former US National Team and LA Galaxy striker. Mathis retired from soccer almost 3 years ago, and made the decision to become an academy coach in order to give back. Many kids only way out is through soccer, and it is my duty to give back to the [general] community after receiving so much from it at a younger age. Mathis played for various Major League Soccer teams, beginning his first-team career in 1998 with LA and ending it back where he started. Mathis talked about the US youth soccer programs in comparison with European programs, as he spent a year in each during his playing career at Hannover 96, Germany and Ergotelis FC, Greece. We dont compare to Europe; were behind but were catching up slowly. In Europe, it is customary for players to forgo school and concentrate only on football, while in America children are typically pushed into a variety of activities.

As a result, American soccer players are a few years behind in development by the time they become serious about the sport. This particular event was one day only, but the Galaxy holds 8-week clinics in 3 LA-area cities throughout the year. The team is hoping to add Claremont to that list, and local product Netza Bravo is pushing that concept. We divided the kids up into appropriate age groups today and worked with them on shooting and passing, before splitting them into teams for small-sided games against each other, he said. Bravo is a fourth-year academy coach who graduated from the Bill Swartzcoached Pomona-Pitzer soccer program. Also present were 2 players from the Galaxy first team. Sean Franklin is LAs current right fullback and is competing for a national team spot. Hes in his fourth year after coming out of Cal State Northridge. Juninho is the Galaxys talisman behind David Beckham in central midfield. He began his career in the So Paulo, Brazil club youth team and is in his third year in Los Angeles, having scored 13 goals since he came on loan to the team. The children also took away tickets to Saturdays upcoming LA Galaxy game against Real Salt Lake. With these youth events, the Galaxy hopes to develop lifelong fans for their team, as well as training young players who might have a future competing at higher levels of play.

Dale Bros. Brewery in Upland, a local favorite since delivering its first keg in 2003, is growing bigger and better with the opening of its new, 8000-square-foot facility in Cable Business Park. Owners Curt and Andy Dale will host a grand opening Oktober-Fiesta party from 3 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, October 13 in Dale Bros. new tap room and outdoor beer garden at 2120 Porterfield Way, off of Foothill Boulevard between Central and Monte Vista Avenues in Upland. General manager Karen McMillen said the new location, which is nearly triple the size of the original brewery, will allow the company to expand its capacity and provide patrons with quality, comfortable surroundings. The tasting room is a beautiful space and a nice place to hang out and taste really great beer and watch the planes taking off from Cable Airport, Ms. McMillen said. Dale Bros. Brewery is open 2 to 9 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Ms. McMillen said the company plans to have food vendors available most weekends.

Dale Bros. brews 3 beers year-round, including Pomona Queen, an amber lager that is its flagship brew; Runway IPA, a pale ale, and California Black Beer, a black lager.

We focus on session beers that pair well with food and are designed to be consumed over the course of an evening, Ms. McMillen said. Currently, Dale Bros. brews are served at more than 70 restaurants, bars and retailers in the region including The Press and Eureka Burger in Claremont, Liquorama in Upland and dba256 in Pomona. Ms. McMillen said the plan is to concentrate on growing outlets in local communities and then radiate out to Chino, Glendora, Redlands and beyond.

The program begins at 2 p.m. followed by tea in the Vita Nova courtyard. Guests are encouraged to visit the exhibition now on view at Williamson Gallery through October 14.

Home tour focuses on one of Claremonts oldest neighborhoods

or Claremont Heritage board members, the architecture that defines the citys homes is as notable as the culture and history of the people living within them. From the historic Arbol Verde to modern Claraboya, Claremonts neighborhoods are an integral part of its heritage.

This years Claremont Heritage Home Tour, set for Sunday, October 14, looks to capture the essence of closeknit Claremont by providing a glimpse into its early homes and inhabitants. Focusing on Indian Hill, one of the citys first and most notable neighborhoods, the Heritage board hopes to help guests relive some of that history. Indian Hill is the backbone of Claremont, said David Sawhill, Heritage board member and co-chair of this years home tour. When people think of Claremont, they think of Indian Hill. Each year the boards president selects a theme, or area of focus, in which to carry out Claremont Heritages mission of educational outreach. Neighbors and neighborhoods was selected as Claremont Heritages overarching theme this year in an effort to strengthen its community profile and relationships. Our goal is to be more involved and have a higher profile in the community, Mr. Neiuber said of Claremont Heritage in a March interview. Focusing on different neighborhoods throughout the year, Claremont Heritages educational programming culminates with a history lesson on Indian Hill. In many ways, Indian Hill Boulevard is the quintessential Claremont neighborhood: the walkability, the stately elms, the parks and perfect sampling of early 20th century residential architecture, states this years Home Tour brochure. In keeping with this years concept, each house on the home tourlocated between Harrison Avenue and Foothill Boulevardwill be within walking distance in an effort to have guests interacting like neighbors, walking over and knocking on the door, said Mr. Sawhill. Six homes on historic Indian Hill Boulevard will be opened for this years tour, each with its own unique story. Among them is the Stover House, built by one of early Claremonts master builders Clarence Stover, who would later build many of the commercial buildings found along Harvard Avenue in the Village. Many of the houses played host to similar key historic players in Claremonts development. One home on this years tour, for example, was the residence of the founder of Claremont McKenna College.

Co-chairman of the 30th annual Claremont Heritage Home Tour David Sawhill hands out thank you gifts to volunteers attending the final meeting of the home tour committee on Thursday in Claremont. Below, Mr. Sawhill answers a question. The tour, titled, Neighbors and Neighborhoods on Historic Indian Hill Boulevard, will be held Sunday, October 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Basics
WHAT: Claremont Heritage Home Tour WHEN: Saturday, October 13 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. WHERE: Indian Hill Boulevard PRICE: $30 members, $35 non-members INFO: www.claremontheritage.org

The tour is a combination of entertainment and education, said Denny Gambill, home tour co-chair along with Mr. Sawhill. To further education and interaction among guests, a highlight of this years tour will be an exhibit of historic aerial photos and maps of the Claremont community in the Ginger Elliott Exhibition Space, located to the rear of the Garner House. The result is a timeline that moves from the 1800s to the 1980s with bios along the way, said archivist Amy Berssen. Features of the exhibit include a Claremont cityscape and a restored map of Pomona and Claremont from the 1930s.

Retired lesbian judge to give guest sermon at CUCC
Martha E. Bellinger, a former minister in the United Methodist Church and later the first open lesbian appointed to the bench in California, is the guest preacher on Sunday, October 14 at the Claremont United Church of Christ. The event is being held in conjunction with National Coming Out Day, recognized on October 11. Ms. Bellingers sermon is entitled, So Whats Your Closet? The service will also mark the addition of the rainbow flag, a symbol of the LGBT community, to the other flags on display in the main sanctuary of the church. Afterwards, Ms. Bellinger will sign copies of her book, From Robe to Robe: A Lesbians Spiritual Journey. She is donating all sales of the book to Claremont United Church of Christ, in recognition of the churchs ministry to the LBGT community for the last 21 years. Ms. Bellinger was ordained into the United Methodist Church in the late 1970s, after attending Princeton University. She served as pastor to a congregation in New York. Although she kept her sexual identity concealed, Ms. Bellinger was disenchanted with the gender discrimination she experienced within the clergy. She left the ministry and moved to California, attending law school at Whittier College. Ms. Bellinger then worked for the Los Angeles County District Attorneys Office, first as a prosecuting attorney and then later in the appellate division, where she represented the State of California before the US Supreme Court. After serving as a Los Angeles County Superior Court commissioner for 14 years, Ms. Bellinger was appointed a Superior Court judge by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. She served as supervising judge in the juvenile court in Pomona, and later sat on the bench in criminal court. Ms. Bellinger retired from the bench in July 2011, but remains active as a mediator for Inland Valley Arbitration and Mediation Services. She is also an advocate for helping the LGBT community maintain its spirituality. I want gay and lesbian people to know the God that I know, Ms. Bellinger said. The God that created them to be the way they are. Using the Bible to condemn gay and lesbian people is the height of hypocrisy, and a poor way to treat people in the 21st century.

on Monday, October 8 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Mudd Theater. Claremont Lincoln University Provost Philip Clayton moderates the panel, which includes: Dr. Paul F. Knitter, Paul Tillich professor of theology, world religions and culture, Union Theological Seminary; Rabbi Nancy Fuchs-Kreimer, PhD, director, department of multifaith studies and initiatives, associate professor of religious studies, Reconstructionist Rabbinical College; Dr. Azizah El-Hibri, professor of law, T. C. Williams School of Law, University of Richmond, founder and president of KARAMAH: muslim women lawyers for human rights; Dr. Henrietta Mann, founder and president of Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribal College, Southwestern Oklahoma State University; and Dr. Anantanand Rambachan, department chair and professor of religion, philosophy and asian studies, Saint Olaf College. The leaders are in town for a parliament conference that brings together 17 religious educators from a variety of faith traditions to discuss how interreligious training can be enhanced for preparing leaders in their own religious tradition and stimulated in religious communities around the world. The project builds on a program at the Parliament of the Worlds Religions in Melbourne, Australia in 2009. Initial sessions of this phase of the study are funded with a grant from the Arthur Vinning Davis Foundations. The panel is hosted by the Claremont Lincoln Univeristy and is free and open to the public.

Pomona College, the founding member of The Claremont Colleges in 1887, will mark its 125th annviersary on Sunday, October 14 with a festive celebration and open house from 1 to 5 p.m., centered on the Marston Quadrangle. The guiding theme of the occasion is community, and Pomona College invites the public to join in its Founders Day festivities.

Pomona College launched the celebration of its quasquicentennial on the first day of classes, September 4, with its annual opening convocation ceremony followed by the performance of Chart of Landing, a dance/music event and, in the evening, a Native American ceremony that offered an opportunity for the college community to honor and connect with individuals whose ancestors inhabited the site long before Pomonas founding. Anniversary observances will continue with special events throughout the year. Pomona College will launch an interactive timeline on the colleges website on October 14. The website will provide in-depth information about Pomonas history, personalities and life on campus through the years. Once the site is live, alumni, students, faculty and staff will be invited to add their photos and memories to create a vibrant record of life at Pomona, in the past and today. To learn about the day-to-day life of current Pomona College students, visit the 125 Days Blog at www.voices.pomona.edu, a social media time capsule of student lives during the 125 days of the fall 2012 semester. Pomona College offered its first classes in September 1888, less than a year of its founding in 1887, in a smallhouse located at the corner of Fifth Street (now Mission Boulevard) and White Avenue in Pomona. Today, the college has approximately 1560 students and offers more than 600 classes in a range of disciplines, offering 47 major fields. The campus encompasses 140 acres and 63 buildings, including 14 residence halls. As a member of the Claremont Colleges Consortium, Pomona College offers its students the personal experience of a small liberal arts college and the range of resources normally associated with major universities.
