Trash talk
Dear Editor: The recent request for proposal for contracting out trash services, with little or no public input, has raised my concern about the direction the city is taking. The city has been well served with delivery of quality trash service and managed costs as a city enterprise operation. Looking at options for city service delivery is a good management practice. I can envision situations when outsourcing of city services could make sense. However, such a change requires a thorough analysis of all business aspects to be sure our residents are getting the invested value and the quality services they expect. Claremonts trash services are a complete business that includes trucks, trash bins, trained personnel, facilities, equipment, customer lists and contracts for disposal, billing and finance. Such a business has a capital value. In any outsourcing decision a determination of the value of the business needs to be made to assure our residents that the city is not giving away the asset without getting value for it. As far as I can find out there has been no such evaluation of the value of the city trash services business. At best the [Reqeust for Proposals] RFP appears to be a hastily prepared document with some glaring inconsistencies. The incomplete nature of the staff work is obvious by the absence of any written reports available for the September 9, 2010 Community Services Commission meeting. Oral reports are inadequate when such a significant change is being proposed for city services. Unfortunately the RFP seems oblivious to the invested value of the city trash business. The RFP approaches outsourcing as if we would be changing from, one outside vendor to another with little or no EDITORS NOTE City reporter Tony Krickl is on vacation until Tuesday, September 14. Pat Yarborough is filling in. Photographer Steven Felschundneff is also on vacation, and will return Wednesday, September 15. Chris Guzman will serve as staff photographer this week.

consideration of the value of the existing city enterprise. In my opinion the incomplete background analysis of the business case for outsourcing and the poor quality of the RFP are glaring problems that necessitate dropping the current RFP and starting over. Algird G. Leiga

Privatizing city trash service

Dear Editor: With the celebration of Labor Day still ringing in our ears, the Claremont city council is considering privatizing our trash collection services and depriving our local employees of their jobs. Does this really make any sense to you? We have one of the most awesome and dependable trash collection services anywhere. The people of Claremont are happy with our current service. They have helped us to be a city committed to recycling a large percentage of our waste. Will a private service have the same commitment? They are very reliable. They always show up on time and have even made accommodations when we have screwed up. Will a private company be willing to do that? We have not had to worry about labor disputes, as other cities with private companies have. We have supplied these workers with a living wage, which in a place like Claremont is something to celebrate. This is an ill conceived idea. Please do not go down this road. We understand that times are tough and you have some tough decisions to make, but please do not take away one of the most well-run entities in the city.

vided an update of crimes that occurred in our city. Reporting allegations of crimes committed elsewhere by former Claremont residents is just tabloid gossip. Further, providing irrelevant personal details of this young mans life in the Police Blotter was intrusive and inappropriate. I hope that the COURIER will reconsider their policy on what types of activities are news-worthy in the Police Blotter and show some discretion in what is covered.

Dear Editor: I abhor the thought of someone burning, with forethought and malice, an artifact held holy by any religion. As revolting as this image is, we must remind ourselves that we are fortunate to live in a nation where our rights (to do sometimes poorly conceived acts) are protected by our Constitution. Throughout our history, the proud legacy of being a haven for immigrants fleeing religious persecution has co-existed with flagrant acts of bigotry and prejudice. So, on the occasion of a Quran-burning in Florida, I would like to take this time to honor the Americans of many religious and ethnic persuasions who have suffered thoughtless abuse over the decades. To mention a few throughout history my help us put this in perspective: those who sat at the back of the bus, those who went to internment camps in the U.S. during WWII, those who have had workplace issues because of headdresses. This letter is a show of support for those Jack and Vera Caselles Muslims in our community who practice Claremont their religion, but also for those who dont happen to practice their religion.

Does anyone want to deal with Claremonts trash?

hat if you gave a party and nobody came? That seems to be the way things are, at least for now, for the citys request for proposals involving possible privatization of the solid waste collection, recycling and disposal services.
Community Services department head Pat Malloy said because no bids have come from those involved in the process, any action on the possible switch of services would not be considered until proposals have been submitted. The new deadline has been extended to September 14. Communications described as invitations to bid were sent to the Burrtec Corporation, a mega-firm in San Bernardino county, Waste Management Inc. in

Baldwin Park, to Valley Vista and Republic services, both in the City of Industry, and Republic Services of Anaheim. Also involved in the process is the citys present sanitation services department, which, Mr. Malloy explained, is in the process of submitting a proposal on their own. After bids have been submitted to the Community Services Commission, an evaluation team will look at the proposals and make recommendations to city staff and/or the Commission and the City Council. The makeup of the evaluation team has not been explained. The matter was originally thought to be on the Commissions agenda for its September 9 meeting. The whole question of privatizing sanitation services has garnered considerable attention and a bit of controversy on its actual money-saving values.

Pedestrians hit by car after leaving church

wo pedestrians suffered moderate injuries after being struck by a vehicle Thursday evening.

Around 6:15 p.m., the pedestrians were walking in a crosswalk at Bonita and Cambridge Avenues. An elderly driver was leaving a church service at Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church when he hit the pedestrians. The driver said the sun was right in his eyes from the sunset and he could not see the pedestrians, Claremont Police Lieutenant Dennis Smith said.

The vehicle was not moving very fast, but the pedestrians were both knocked to the ground, Lt. Smith said. They were transported to a local hospital, suffering from non-life threatening injuries. No further information was immediately available. In November 2009, a Claremont resident died after being struck by a car in the same intersection. The 88year-old man was crossing the street in a motorized scooter when the accident occurred. He died 13 days after the accident in the hospital.

Police arrest several people under the influence

Friday, September 3 A 34-year-old Claremont resident was arrested for public intoxication after causing a disturbance during an outdoor music performance at the Old School House. Police received a call at approximately 9 p.m. regarding the intoxicated person, who was reported to have been pushing people in the courtyard. When officers arrived to the scene, the man was found dancing and stumbling from side to side. He also rolled on the ground holding a small child. Officers determined that the man was under the influence of alcohol and asked him to come off the dance floor. Initially, the intoxicated man refused and pulled his arm away from the officer who was trying to lead him away. After police took him into custody, Kirk Barnes was released hours later after sobering up. Saturday, September 4 Claremont police spotted a 19-yearold Claremont resident stumbling as he walked on Bonita Avenue at 12:45 a.m. According to the report, the male pedestrian almost fell into the street on several occasions. Police approached the man and asked him where he was headed. The 19-yearold stated he was going to Pomona Col-

police blotter
lege. When asked about how much he had to drink, he responded by saying, too much. The report also indicated the intoxicated man had dirt and leaves on his shirt and shorts as well as minor abrasions on his feet and ankles. Carter Ruff was arrested for public intoxication and was later released. ***** Officers arrested a Palos Verdes resident for driving under the influence around 1 a.m. when they noticed a vehicle heading east on Foothill Boulevard without its lights on. After making a traffic stop, police took Steven Fox, 22, into custody. He was later released. ***** A 31-year-old man was taken into custody after being deemed under the influence by police around 4 a.m. According to the report, an officer observed a vehicle on Foothill Boulevard swerving from side to side. After making a traffic stop, the officer arrested Upland resident Sungphil Cho. ***** Claremont Colleges campus safety enlisted the help of Claremont police after encountering a hostile 19-year-old man that was escorted from a party held near the intersection of Ninth Street and Mills Avenue. The disturbance occurred around 10:40 p.m. Once police arrived on the scene, officers deemed the man to be intoxicated. The 19-year-old used expletives in describing his hatred for police and also threatened to kill the officers. After pushing a female bystander away, he ran toward an officer and struck him in the chest and attempted to kick the officer. The officer detained the hostile man, bringing him to the ground. Still resisting arrest by hitting and kicking the officers, police then used a taser to bring the subject under control and put him in handcuffs. Claremont resident Walker Adams was arrested for resisting arrest, public intoxication and battery on a police officer. Mr. Adams was later released with a citation. Sunday, September 5 A man and woman avoided an attempted robbery while sitting in their vehicle in the parking lot of Howard Johnsons on Indian Hill Boulevard. At approximately midnight, 2 black men dressed in matching black hooded sweatshirts and black pants approached

their car. One of the suspects walked to the drivers side window and pointed the blade of a short handled knife at the male driver while demanding money and jewelry. The victims noticed the second man standing near the vehicle holding a handgun. After the victims told the men they didnt have money or jewelry, the suspects ran off. According to the report, the faces of the suspects could not be described because they were partially covered by their sweatshirts. Police received no further reports on the suspects. Tuesday, September 7 A 20-year-old white male nearly made off with more than $900 worth of razor refill cartridges during an attempted theft from Vons on Base Line Road at 11:30 p.m. The suspect entered the grocery store and walked to the check stand to grab a bag before heading to the aisle with mens grooming products. After grabbing 45 boxes of razors, he attempted to leave the store. A clerk on duty observed what was taking place and confronted the suspect. Seconds later, the suspect dropped the bag and fled the store. The suspect was described as 5-feet, 8-inches tall, weighting 170 pounds and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a red hat. Police are currently reviewing surveillance video to try to determine the identity of the suspect.

Claremont Villas takes the lead in housing certification

here was definitely a reason to party at the Claremont Villas Senior Apartments. Manager Carmen Jackson and Villas residents celebrated the complexs certification as the first official member of the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program in the city on Thursday afternoon.

Mayor Linda Elderkin, City Councilmen Corey Calaycay and Sam Pedroza and City Manager Jeff Parker were on hand, as were a number of members of the Claremont Police Department and the volunteer Safe and Healthy Housing (SHH) Committee. Congratulations to Ms. Jackson and brief remarks were offered by Alice Ortiz, volunteer coordinator of the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program, Mayor Elderkin, Sergeant Aaron Fate of Claremont Police Department, and Jim Keith, chairman of the SHH committee, who introduced members of the group who were in attendance. In turn, Ms. Jackson introduced and thanked members of the staff at Claremont Villas. They included Kathie Ramirez, assistant manager, Evelyn Sanchez, head of housekeeping, and Nick Hernandez, head of maintenance. The program, co-sponsored by the city of Claremont and the Claremont Police Department, has been over 2 years in the making, germinating with the SHH committee and growing from the experiences of other communities. As noted by Ms. Ortiz, the process for Ms. Jackson and the complex to become certified was substantial. The belief is that the achievement of being a member of the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program is an asset to both owners and managers of housing complexes, as well as prospective residents looking for housing. Qualifications for becoming certified include completion of a 2-phase training program, offered in 4-hour

Almost in my own backyard

by Jan Wheatcroft

discovered the sculptures of French sculptor Niki de Saint Phalle while I was in Japans Hakone Open Air Museum about 5 years back.

There I stood, tiny me, next to a giantess made out of cement and mosaic in bright colors and was totally smitten. Over the years I have discovered other places where her sculptures are exhibited. In France next to the Pompidou Museum there is a circle of her sculptures. I discovered another one in Stockholm, Sweden outside a museum in the center of town. I have always longed to see more and imagined that they would be far away from where I live. Then in a magazine I read that there was a garden where a series of her sculptures were located. I imagined it was on a hill surrounded by trees with giant, colorful imaginative beings leaping out of the landscape. (Boy, was I wrong.) The only thing I gathered was that they were

actually located in Escondido in San Diego Countys Kit Carson Park. I did some online research, found out the location and with my friend, Hieu, planned an outing to discover for ourselves what was really located so close to home. It was hot the morning we left and I kept chanting, closer to the ocean, cooler temperatures which wasnt quite true in this case. We arrived at the park and followed the signs to Queen Califias Magical Circle which is the name of de Saint Phalles exhibit area. We walked and walked and I kept looking up on the hills for signs of mythical beasts or giants hiding behind trees. And then in the distance I saw bright projectiles of color amidst some trees. What we found was a large fence on the outside, a circle of trees inside the fence and then a 400-foot undulating wall of black and white mosaics topped with spectacular snake forms in luscious colors meeting head to head or tail to tail and enclosing the entire circle. The single entry is through a maze of mosaics and mirrors that are all very touchable. Inside. one finds 9 large scale sculptures of totem figures, and fantasy creatures and Queen Califia herself, standing on the back of a 5-legged eagle at the center. Entering this piece was like settling into a cool space under the sky as the interior is covered with stars and

graphics and the blue is intense. All around the entire space are benches and places to sit and admire and enjoy. We walked about, engulfed in the size and color and design of everything around us. It was all touchable and touch we did. There were plaques of the handprints of all the artists and workers who created the art. Touch, touch, touch. There were large bits of glass mirrors embedded along with the rocks, pebbles, ceramic and glass pieces used for the mosaics. We stood in front and photographed ourselves and our feet in the mirrored fragments. We peeked out of the legs of creatures and grinned at our cleverness. We walked around the snake wall numerous times to gain the best perspective for color and texture and the best photo ops. For most of the time we were there, we were the only visitors. A small group of 3 women came for a few minutes, but otherwise we were alone to discover and delight in this totally secret garden. Apparently de Saint Phalle was inspired by Californias mythical and historical roots and by symbols and forms freely taken from Native American, PreColumbian and Mexican art which she then wove into her own fantastic imagery. We were told that this is the only American sculpture garden and the last major international project created by her. And imagine, it is just an hour away from us here in Claremont. The secret garden was completed in 2003. Surrounding the main sculpture of Queen Califia are 8 smaller pieces called totems. They have names such as Cathead totem, Yelling man totem and Kingfisher totem. I loved them all and best of all I loved that they were there hidden and waiting to be discovered.

Doug Wallace
Who? Doug Wallace, volunteer coordinator for the Claremont Forums Prison Library Project, and a former 27-year librarian in Istanbul, Turkey, working at a girls school founded in the 1870s. Reading in Turkish was very important to me. I got to where I could read it and speak it fairly well, but its been 8 years now, said Mr. Wallace, mentioning Ernest Hemingways The Old Man and the Sea as a prime example of a high interest and low vocabulary book he enjoyed. Currently reading: Beginning his Christian journey as a Pomona College student in 1960, Mr. Wallace has since immersed himself in studying the Bible, his primary reading source for many years now. Ever since then, Ive been on a trek to understand the deep sort of rebelliousness within me, and the deep sort of tendency to fly off in all sorts of directions that arent always good, said Mr. Wallace. Seeking a better understanding of his soul, he reads the Bible daily, combining the written word with meditation. He struggles with feelings of inadequacy as a Christian, often coping with a lack of motivation to live the Christian life. I have delved into Bible study for many years, and the further I get into it, the more inadequate I feel, he said. I dont have any sort of sense that Ive arrived. Mr. Wallace is particularly captivated by the sayings of Jesus in the Bibles Gospel of John, especially fascinated by Jesus consciousness about being the Son of God. The more I read, the more I am mesmerized by it, he said. Im at the place where I think its astounding, the power that the psychology that Jesus operated through had on his life and the lives of those around him. It was almost like the power of a hypnotist working with his patients, and they become mesmerized and completely changed by the encounter. Another matter of interest that compels Mr. Wallace toward the Bible is what he referred to as the dual aspect, or personality, of the same God: the Old Testament God of war; and the New Testament son of God, a peacemaker and pacifist. This is very interesting to me, because in the Old Testament, God seems unashamedly equated with war, and in the New Testament, Jesus said Blessed are the peacemakers, and All that take the sword will perish by the sword. And Jesus also says, He who has seen me has seen the Father, so the God of war and the God of peace seem to be 2 personality aspects of the same God. Viewing this as a conundrum, Mr. Wallace, who applied as a conscientious objector during the Korean War, is on a mission to reconcile his questions about this perceived dualism. The issue of a warring God perplexes Mr. Wallace, who is deeply troubled about how since the Neolithic time on, the violence of war has done nothing but increase, and the peoples, whenever they are and whenever they have a national consciousness about God, assert that God is with them and supporting their violence. I feel like this means in our day and age that religion is no longer valid, because the churches have been the greatest supporters of war, he continued. I do attend church because sometimes I get very valuable teachings there, but I feel the church is no more an aspect of the kingdom of God than any part of the secular world. On Fridays, Mr. Wallace posts himself on the corner of Indian Hill and Foothill boulevards with a sign reading, Blessed are the peacemakers. Recent reads: Mr. Wallace recently finished Left To Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust by Immacule Ilibagiza, whose entire family was murdered during the genocidal slaughter. For 91 days, she hid in the tiny bathroom of a pastor and escaped death. In addition to telling of the horror and terror of this time, the author describes her experiences of faith, prayer, miracles, unconditional love and, ultimately, how she sought out and forgave her familys killers.

COURIERphoto/Chris Guzman Doug Wallace, volunteer coordinator for the Prison Library Project, on the porch of his Claremont home.

Right now, even though Im Protestant, this Catholic author is speaking to me very much, Mr. Wallace said. Books of importance: Leo Tolstoys War and Peace has long been an extremely important book for Mr. Wallace. The classic novel touches upon one of his primary contemplative interests, that of struggling to find meaning during terrible times. It does one of the best jobs of almost any book I have seen in dealing with these deep sorts of spiritual issues as they touch human lives, he said. In addition to Tolstoy, a number of classics authors remain important to him even years after reading their work: John Steinbeck, Charles Dickens, William Makepeace Thackeray, Gustave Flaubert. Favorites: Again noting the common subject of people searching for ethical meaning in devastating circumstances, Mr. Wallace cited Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck as one of his all-time favorite books. It follows people through the Depression and their attempts to make meaning out of a senseless and hopeless historical situation. That is a theme that has been really important to me my entire life. Favorite book nook: With little surprise, Mr. Wallace mentioned the Thoreau Bookstore as his primary source for books. Profits from the store, which is located in the

Packing House, benefit the Forums Prison Library Project dear to Mr. Wallaces heart. He also finds books at Honnold/Mudd Library at The Claremont Colleges, and the library at Pilgrim Place, where he is a resident. Favorite place to read: One of my favorite places is an easy chair in a little closet area where I have a lamp right at my shoulder, and a space heater in front of me, and I close all the doors and keep it warm, and I dont have to heat the whole house. I feel very comfortable there. And I always have my favorite cup of green tea. A last thought on reading: Mr. Wallace shared concerns about the negative impact of rampant Internet use for quick and abridged information, in contrast to the mastery of information contained within a longer, heartier read. My feeling is that people are getting too used to using the Internet as a tool, getting a summary without reading extensively or reading the classics, Mr. Wallace expressed. This has the danger of throwing us into another dark age, where people have no interest in or ability to deal with complex cultural matters. Reliance on this technology without the buffer of really understanding the philosophy, history or broader context is a real danger.

Dorothy D. Aldrich
New Englander, artist, executive secretary
New England native Dorothy D. Aldrich, most recently a resident of San Dimas, died on August 22, 2010 following a stroke and heart attack in June. Ms. Aldrich, age 93, died with her son Win Aldrich of Claremont by her bedside. Born to Luther Claude Dizney (18881973) and Anne Isabel Shea Dizney (1899-1982) in Walpole, Massachusetts on March 3, 1917, Ms. Aldrich grew up in nearby Quincy, Massachusetts. After graduating from Quincy Point Junior High School in 1932 and Quincy High School in 1935, she studied secretarial science at Boston University. At the university, she belonged to the Zeta Chi Delta Sorority. On September 28, 1940, Ms. Aldrich married John Winthrop Aldrich (19151991) whom she had met through the matchmaking efforts of their mothers, both members of the Quincy Womens Club. Before divorcing in 1967, the couple had 3 children, John Winthrop, Jr.; Priscilla, who died at birth; and Bruce Elliott, who died in 1993. From 1940 to 1970, Ms. Aldrich resided in Woodbury, Connecticut, subsequently living in other parts of Connecticut until her 1983 move to New Mexico. During World War II, she volunteered as a member of the Gauze Girls, who convened regularly to roll bandages for wounded combat soldiers. And gossip with a number of women who became lifelong friends, said her son, Win. Ms. Aldrich took pride in her New England heritage and ancestry, As only New Englanders can, said Win, and belonged to a number of related associations including Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and the Society of Old Plymouth Descendants. A standing rivalry in the Aldrich home deemed Ms. Aldrich as the original New Englander because her ancestors arrived earlier than her husbands: hers came on the Mayflower; his not until 1631. In her younger years, Ms. Aldrich enjoyed swimming and boating in the numerous lakes and streams of New England, photography, horseback riding, tobogganing and ice-skating, vegetable, flower and herb gardening and spending time outdoors. In the late 60s in Connecticut, Ms. Aldrich began working, first as the secretary to the headmaster at Forman School in Litchfield, Connecticut, and then as the secretary to the headmistress at the Wykeham Rise School for Girls in Washington Depot, Connecticut. She enjoyed both positions and was particularly fond of the girls school. For many years after, she maintained contact with a number of the young women she met there. Prior to retiring in 1982, Ms. Aldrich maintained membership in the International Association of Administrative Professionals. She also belonged to the University Club of Waterbury, Connecticut and, earlier, the Woodbury Club, a social club comprised of young couples that formed during WWII. A skilled, professional artist, Ms. Aldrich immersed herself in Early American Design endeavors, taking workshops at the Fletcher Farm School for the Arts and Crafts in Ludlow, Vermont and creating original works in her studio in Morris, Connecticut. She was involved in teaching and the production and restoration of Early American decorative craft activities, including glass reverse painting, fabric design painting, stenciling of Hitchcock chairs and tray decorating. Numerous times, she entered Early American craft competitions and won several awards. In 1983, Ms. Aldrich moved to New west, the Caribbean and other locations. For the last 4 years, while living locally, she spent much time in Claremont with her family, attending concerts at The Claremont Colleges and enjoying the nostalgic feel of the tree-shaded town, so similar in personality and atmosphere to New England. New England gave Ms. Aldrich not only roots she took pride in, it also gave her a subtle sense of humor: kindhearted sarcasm, straight-faced puns, which were always totally unexpected, and a frugal and self-sufficient lifestyle, explained her son, Win, who added that his mother was also a woman of grace, dignity and charm. Ms. Aldrich is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, J. Winthrop Aldrich, Jr. and Carole (Mehlig) Aldrich of Claremont; her grandson, Elliott F. Aldrich and his wife, Ellen Dektar of Oakland; her great-grandchildren, Benjamin W. Aldrich and Phoebe C. Aldrich, also of Oakland; and by many nieces, nephews and cousins in Massachusetts and Maine as well as many wonderful, caring friends in Rio Rancho, New Mexico and at Atria Rancho Retirement Park in San Dimas. She was preceded in death by her brother, Leonard C. Dizney (1927-2000). A celebration of life will take place at 3 p.m. on Sunday, September 12, 2010 at Atria Rancho Park, 801 Cypress Way, San Dimas. On October 8, 2010 at 10 a.m., Ms. Aldrichs ashes will be scattered in Rio Rancho at Vista Verde Memorial Park in New Mexico.

Mexico to live near her son, Bruce, finding immediate delight in the Land of Enchantments sweeping vistas and beautiful landscapes, the food and the mix of Native American, Spanish, Mexican and Anglo cultures. Such love for the state perhaps arose from and engendered a long-overdue connection with her own ancestry, as both of her grandmothers were Native American. Plus, said her son, Win, it was just a new beginning for her. In retirement, both in New Mexico and, later, after she moved to San Dimas in 2006 to be near family, Ms. Aldrich made many dear friends. Over the years, she enjoyed adventures to Bermuda, Switzerland, Hawaii, California, Utah, Arizona, the Pacific North-

Webb student surprised to be winning prestigious award


eventeen-year-old Dakota SantanaGrace was shocked to learn that he won an award that he never applied

In May, Dakota was informed that he had won the David W. Armstrong Paleontology Prize, the Webb School junior was also surprised to learn that he was a 2010 recipient of The Rensselaer Medal from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The award is given to a high school junior who represents the schools most promising science and mathematics student. I was completely taken back because I had only gotten a museum award but never an award for science and mathematics, Dakota recalled. I was frozen in my seat before I got up to receive the award. I had no idea anything like this was coming. Dakota was one of more than 2200 students to be surprised this year with the Rensselaer Medal. Along with the prestige of the award, medalists who enroll at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute also receive a scholarship $60,000 payable in 4 yearly chunks of $15,000 each. Founded in 1824, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is the oldest technological university in the United States. The university specializes in architecture, art, business and management, engineering, humanities, information technology and social science.

Cross-country on the trail for state championship

he Claremont High School boys and girls cross country teams will finally start the road to the CIF State Championships with its first meet of the season at Laguna Hills today. With the transition into the Sierra League, high expectations for the boys team to equal or surpass its state championship efforts from 2009, and with a more determined girls team, the 2010 season will have plenty of thrills and challenges for the Wolfpack. Im excited to see if the girls team can join the boys team deep in the postseason, said CHS cross country coach Rob Lander. Our girls team is going to turn heads and they are stacked with young talent. The boys wont have the competition they had in the Baseline League but it will be challenging nonetheless. Its not going to be a cake walk by any means.

SPORTING LIFE continued from the previous page

Eyeing a return to Fresno The boys team is coming off a memorable 2009 season. Paul Ross, Henry Falotico, A.K. Metoyer, Colin Domonoske, Ryan Solis, Miles Moreno and Keenan Gilson paced Claremont to a 4th place finish at the CIF Division II State Championships last November. This season will be the last hurrah for senior captains Ross, Falotico and Domonoske. The 3 runners believe this years team is capable of an even bigger finish than 2009. Were returning our top 4 runners from last year so thats definitely a good thing, Ross said. Were looking at getting a podium spot in Fresno by finishing in the Top 3 this year. One of the reasons the captains believe Claremont can get a higher finish this year is because of the switch from the Baseline League to the Sierra League. Whereas the Baseline League had one contender in the Division I state championship last year, the Sierra League had Glendora as its only representative in the Division II state championship. Glendora is now in the Baseline League. Yet Domonoske feels the Claremont runners hold their destinies in their own hands. The boys team had 2 months of productive practices to prepare for the season. We put in our time during the summer, Domonoske said. The big factor for us will be staying healthy. We need to [be able to] run our best towards the end of the year. We have to keep up our motivation and training because its going to be a long season. Ready to make an impact The girls team plans to be alongside the boys team in the state championships this year. With plenty of young talent joining the team along with the experience of the upperclassmen, senior cap-

tain Quinn Alkonis believes her squad will have a successful season. We have a lot of sophomores and we recently got a lot of talented freshmen, Alkonis said. We have a young team that is really good. Were going to go out and do our best and see where we end up. The journey to the state championships wont be easy for CHS. The Sierra League is known for highly competitive cross country in the girls division. Yet the idea of competition does not deter the Wolfpack from its goal of competing in Fresno this November. The girls already started taking steps this summer toward reaching that goal. The Sierra League is a lot more competitive than the Baseline League but if we do well, well have a better chance of reaching the state championships, said senior captain Ashley Riggle. We are the fittest we have been since Ive been here and I think this league will push us where we need to be. It would be really cool if we can get to the state championships with the younger girls. Senior captain Charlotte Selters agrees. Everyone wants to do well and try their hardest, she said. We have a lot of talent and want to see our hard work pay off. The cross country season will continue through November 2nd. On that date, Claremont will compete in the Sierra League Finals. The CIF schedule includes the prelims on November 13th, the finals on November 20th and the state championships on November 27th. For more information, visit
