So what are Claremonters really thinking?

City Reporter Tony Krickl

Education and Sports Reporter Landus Rigsby


very week to 10 days, COURIER Online posts a new poll question on our homepage asking for reader opinions on issues pertaining to Claremont and national news. We know from experience Claremont residents have a wide variety of opinions, many of which end up published in our newspaper.
The number of respondents varies depending on the question. Im happy to report we get anywhere from 30-60 people participating each week and the number continues to increase. Hopefully after this column, more of you will decide to take the plunge. So what are we thinking? The first thing to note is Claremont residents track closely to what America thinks on national issues. For example, the vote was split equally when asked whether you would support the current health care legislation. Our first poll question was whether you felt Mark McGuire deserved to be in the baseball hall of fame. Just like the writers who voted him in, Claremonters were 3 to 1 against it. Things got a little more interesting when we focused on Claremont-specific issues. Especially when the topic concerned spending. One of the biggest surprises for me was the feedback on city budget cuts and its impact on services. Only 38 percent of the respondents felt city services would be impacted a lot. The remaining percentage was split between somewhat to none. I guess only time will tell if those opinions change as the cuts go into effect. Did we think CUSD dealt with job reductions in an efficient manner? Given the emotions involved linked to so many teachers, only 29 percent thought the district did. But when asked what areas the school district should cut the budget, there was little consensus.

Support for teachers remained strong with only 5 percent voting for layoffs. It was not surprising that the areas receiving the most support were cutting administration and support staff (38 percent) and reducing extra curricular programs at 28 percent. Ending class size reduction was the other choice of note at 21 percent. Clearly in situations where resources must be trimmed, there are no easy or popular solutions. Other results covered a variety of subjects. Will Democrats and Republicans reach a compromise on health care? Claremonters made an accurate prediction (poll was conducted before legislation was passed) with an 84 percent no vote. Should the city seek damages from the lost elm tree on Indian Hill Boulevard? Many agreed with the city with 61 percent responding yes. After the police department released yearly city crime statistics, we asked what made the biggest impact on reducing crime. Better police work came in at 20 percent, educating residents at 25 percent. Maybe its just a sign of the times when 40 percent of those responding said it was just a lucky year. As with any poll, these results are from a small portion of the general public and cannot be taken too seriously. But they can give us a sense of how we are thinking in this fast changing world. I will continue to be a nudge and encourage all of you to participate. The more people who respond, the more accurate the results. And if you have any ideas for a poll question, please email me your thoughts at pweinberger@claremont-courier.com.

State awards League water conservation grant

he League of Women Voters has secured grant money that could significantly increase Claremonts use of local water.

The Rivers and Mountains Conservancy (RMC), a state bond agency, awarded the League a $200,000 grant for a feasibility study to explore groundwater recharge, habitat restoration and the creation of recreational amenities at the Thompson Creek Spreading Grounds in north Claremont. The 120 acres of spreading grounds are located just south of the Claremont Wilderness Park. The Pomona Valley Protective Association (PVPA) has owned the land for the last 100 years. What were trying to do is increase local conservation of water, said Marilee Scaff of the League of Women Voters. If we can spread more water there, it will reduce the need for importing water from northern California.

While nothing is set in stone, current plans envision the construction of low-impact walking trails, a wetlands area and a more efficient system for recharging rainwater. The feasibility study will also consider the use of water reclamation in the future, Ms. Scaff said. A wetlands area would be useful to wild animals and restore the natural habitat, said Freeman Allen, who has worked together with Ms. Scaff on the project. We could also establish a city park on flat land that would be easier for families and elderly people to use. The League applied for a total of $7 million for the project that would be used for purchasing land from PVPA and constructing the amenities. League water experts believe they have a good shot at securing the money for the project once the feasibility study is completed. This is exactly the kind of multi-use project the state is pushing for, Mr. Allen said. We have aspects of water conservation, recreational use for the public and preservation of open space.

Within the spreading grounds, the Thompson Creek Dam runs from east to west and a biking/hiking trail runs diagonally through the property from Mills Avenue to Pomello Drive. The underground aquifer currently provides about half of Claremonts water. League water experts believe that more efficient use of the dam and spreading grounds can significantly boost local water use. Were hoping [the project] can really decrease the citys and the Pomona Valleys dependence on imported water, Mr. Allen said. The League of Women Voters will hold a meeting to hear from residents and involved agencies about the future of the spreading grounds. The meeting will take place next Saturday, April 24, beginning at noon in the Padua Room at the Hughes Center. A complimentary light lunch will be served. Ms. Scaff said she hopes the meeting is well attended by the community. We want to hear from our residents what they think this land can best be used for, she said.

CHS students become the host in exchange program

Eighteen-year old Katharina Stechl, left, listens as Mayor Linda Elderkin answers her question about Claremonts street trees on Thursday at City Hall. A group of German exchange students met with the mayor as part of their educational visit to southern California.

fter a visit to Germany for 2 weeks last fall, Claremont High School students returned the favor to their German counterparts by hosting the very students who hosted them last November and December.
For the past 2 weeks, CHS students enrolled in German III and German IV classes have been taking their German peers all across southern California to give their partners a taste of American life. Just about every day weve had some sort of activity, said CHS junior Collin Pate. During spring break, we were doing an activity every day. I think there is a lot more involvement when we are the hosts. You have to do a lot more planning ahead because they are asking what were going to do next. Its [sometimes] hard because you want to always have something to do so they wont get bored. Yet boredom has been far from the mind of Collins counterpart, Roman Morgenweck. The German student from Munich has enjoyed the overseas journey that has featured stops in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Claremont and many southern California attractions. It has been amazing and Ive enjoyed it here, Roman said. Collin has a nice family and Ive seen so many things. Weve been very busy. I went to San Diego with his family and had an amazing time. Now I have a good impression of California. CHS German teacher Carolyn Spanier has overseen the exchange program for the past 5 years. She worked with 2 English teachers from GermanyUrsel Junitz and Beate Rotheapielerto make this years exchange a reality. The exchange program is available to CHS students

who take upper-level German courses. CHS students go to Germany in late fall while their German counterparts come to Claremont during spring. Claremont students also hold fundraisers during the school year to help cover the cost of the program. Its a great job for us to do, Ms. Junitz pointed out. We see how much they gain from this experience year after year. Some of the partners even become close and friendships develop. Over the 2 weeks, the CHS and German students have visited Disneyland, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Norton Simon Museum, Getty Museum, Huntington Beach and even Claremont City Hall. The German students also accompanied their CHS hosts onto the Claremont campus on Monday and Wednesday. I liked the high school because Ive always watched American teen movies and wanted to know if the cliches were true, said German student Katharina Stechl. Our school is much smaller and all of our classes are in one building. [At Claremont High School], people were sitting in class with their i-Phones and cell phones on the table. And the students seemed like they were closer to their teachers. Its not like that in Germany and you would never see a teacher and student hug. Out here it is more relaxed. Katharinas partner, CHS junior Devan Sexton, believes the exchange program helps students realize how big the world is and has appreciated both traveling and hosting. Its a learning experience because in America, we can become so isolated, she said. So we need to go out of the United States and really see how different people are. According to Roman, the United States and Germany represent 2 different worlds. Its a completely different lifestyle here, he said. In Germany, we always take our bikes to school but here, students drive their cars. There is a lot of fast food out here but Germany does not have much of that. And everything is big herehuge cars, huge streets and huge houses. America is also more open-minded.

Property issues highlight latest council meeting

Baseline Road property to be sold he city council approved the sale of Redevelopment Agencyowned land near Towne Avenue and Baseline Road with a unanimous vote. Purchased in 2005 and 2006, the land was intended for an affordable housing project. But in 2008, the project lost county funding due to its near proximity to the 210 Freeway and was abandoned. The 2.66 acres of land were purchased

for $1.96 million. The purchaser of the land, City Ventures of Los Angeles, plans to build a residential development at the site. The agreed sale price is $1.75 million. City staff argued the sale price, representing a loss of about 11 percent from the original purchase price, was not bad in the context of the residential housing market in Claremont. Mid-2005 was the peak of the housing market, with declines really starting in mid-2007 and continuing on in 2008, said Housing and Redevelopment Manager Brian Desatnik. The median home price in Claremont in mid-2005 was right about $600,000 compared to the median home price today of about $470,000, representing a drop of 22 percent. Resident Opanyi Nasiali was the only speaker to address the council about a potential residential development at the site, citing concerns about the impact of freeway pollution on residents. I still want to be on the record as saying that the city should not be allowing any new residential developments adjacent to the freeway, he said. At the last city council meeting, Joseph OToole, whose group Citizens for the American Dream blasted the Baseline site because air pollution from the nearby freeway would be harmful to residents and children living there, spoke in favor of building private residential housing. I agree to the market-priced housing on the area next to the strawberry patch, Mr. OToole said. We went through many years of fighting [the affordable housing project] and were very happy with market-based housing. The land is zoned to allow a density of 15 units per acre, Mr. Desatnik said. The money from the sale will go into the Redevelopment Agency Housing fund and then be used to repay an outstanding loan of $1.5 million to the citys General Fund due to acquisition of College Avenue affordable housing site. Escrow on the property will close after 18 months. Mr. Desatnik said 2 electrical poles on the land would be relocated at a cost of $200,000. The buyer will be responsible for those expenses.

Garden with a View event to honor renowned botanist

Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden will honor internationally renowned botanist Dr. Peter H. Raven at Garden with a View on Sunday, May 2, 2010, at 3 p.m., in the California Courtyard adjacent to the RSABG Garden Shop. Tickets are $150 per person. The reservation deadline is Tuesday, April 27. Described by Time magazine as a Hero for the Planet (April 1999), Dr. Raven is the recipient of numerous national and international prizes and awards. The Garden with a View is an annual fundraising event that benefits the gardens research, horticulture and education programs. Early in his career Dr. Raven served as taxonomist and curator of the Herbarium at RSABG. During his tenure, he worked with RSABGs first executive director, Philip Munz, on his research of Onagraceae (Evening Primrose family). The event begins with cocktails, hors doeuvres and a silent auction, followed by a three-course dinner, live auction and entertainment. Raven will present a 20-minute talk Importance of Botanic Gardens in Todays World. For information about this event, including sponsorship opportunities, contact call 625-8767 ext. 258.

case for the appeal, arguing against any development due to the educational benefits the Bernard Field Station has to offer. Harvey Mudds most recent development initiative, a green parking lot shows a general lack of concern for the well-being of their paying customers, the students, said student Miranda Holton. And the mere fact that they have allocated a portion of their parcel to be a buffer zone shows that they are acknowledging that their activities will negatively affect the surrounding environment. Council members voted unanimously to deny the appeal, citing liability concerns. This is privately owned land by the colleges and you cannot just zone private land with an open space designation, Councilmember Corey Calaycay said. He urged students to channel their efforts to pressure the college administration. If thats what the student body wants, you [will be] the alumni of the colleges, you are the ones who will be contributing over the years to the colleges, so vote with your dollars if thats the way you feel, Mr. Calaycay said. But in terms of what this council can do, we do have to follow the letter of the law. Mills Act home approved for funding home built in 1931 was approved for property tax rebates through the Mills Act. Located on Alamosa Drive, the home is a single-story Spanish Revival style home with a detached garage and a storage barn. Homeowners plan to make significant improvements to upkeep the historic qualities, including re-roofing and rewiring and repairing the wood windows and river rock walls. The Mills Act is a preservation tool created by the California state legislature to encourage the preservation and restoration of historic properties. Only 6 homes per year qualify for a Mills Act contract in Claremont to limit the citys financial responsibility as a result of the program.

Bernard Field Station land discussed n appeal to reconsider creating parcel maps on portions of land at the Bernard Field Station was denied by the city council. On March 2, the Planning Commission approved the creation of 4 parcel maps on 11.45 acres of the property, located at the western portion of the field station. Property owner Harvey Mudd College pushed for the partitioning of the land as it plans to sell half of the property to Claremont Graduate University. City Planner Lisa Prasse said neither institution has immediate development plans for the land. Resident Michael Keenan filed the appeal on the Planning Commission decision on the premise that the zoning and land use designations are inconsistent and inappropriate. A handful of students from the colleges attended the meeting to support the

According to a news release from the District Attorneys Office of San Bernardino County, Mr. Watson allegedly filed false insurance claims that his vehicle had been damaged and that parts had been stolen. Mr. Watson claimed the incidents took place while his car was parked overnight for several days at Ontario International Airport. According to airport records, the car may not have actually been there. According to the release, Mr. Watson withdrew his claim after being questioned by the insurance company, AAA.

Pomona College and unionization

Dear Editor: As reported in the April 10 issue, members of Pomona Colleges Dining Services staff are considering unionization and have asked the college to accept a card-check process. Pomona College is not opposed to unionization. We respect the right of our workers to unionize through a fair process with full information and a secret ballot election. We have publicly pledged that there will be no intimidation or retaliation against anyone involved in these efforts. Our dining services operation is, by its very nature, seasonal. In a given year, the dining halls are in full operation for 32 weeks out of 52. However, the College has committed to providing a full nine months of work for staff during the academic year and to making as many summer hours available as possible to those who wish to work during that period. In 2008-2009, the average number of hours worked by dining hall staff during the academic year was 1,722 (including overtime). Of the dining staff who wanted to work during last summers break, employees averaged an additional 385 hours (including overtime). In terms of pay and benefits, all wages in dining services are higher than the Los Angeles County living wage rate. Over the last four years, the average raise to continuing staff in Dining Services was 13 percent (total). All college staff, including dining services, are eligible for the same benefits, including health insurance on a 12month basis and tuition subsidies. The college is committed to maintaining a safe and fair workplace with open channels of communication. We have made many changes in the Dining Services area, over the past few years that have improved salaries and benefits, work conditions, staff and management communication, and the processes for resolution of workplace issues.

Contemplate the issues

Dear Editor: Wikipediadespite its sometimes disputed reputationdoes contain a few real gems. For example, the first paragraph of their United States Constitution article very succinctly establishes the context for understanding the significance of our Constitution: The Constitution of the United States of America is the supreme law of the United States. It is the foundation and source of the legal authority underlying the existence of the United States of America and the federal government of the United States. It provides the framework for the organization of the United States government and for the relationship of the federal government to the states, to citizens, and to all people within the United States. In his letter [Unacceptable theory, COURIER, April 7, 2010], Mr. Merrill Ring declares, Instead of addressing the grand theory behind it all, let me restrict my comments to two matters... Unfortunately, its not possible to engage in a serious discussion without addressing the grand theory. This dogged determination not to comprehend the theory has created the present-day public policy formulation environment, in which our elected representatives see no reason to comply with, or even to consult, the document which defines and limits their authority.

So....what does this mean to the current discussion of the commerce clause, and health care? Well, before we get there, we need to understand a bit more about the framers concept of the terms contained in the document they created. In the framers understanding, commerce meant the literal act of exchanging goods or services. Therefore, as they understood it, under the new constitution the proposed Congress would have the authority to regulate the process by which goods would be exchangedthat is, to establish uniform standards. Their intent was that the Congress would establish and maintain a level playing field, as we would call it today, so that one state could not set up barriers or other restrictions to commerce which would disadvantage citizens in other states. Their intent was not to dictate the nature or content of the commence, nor to require certain types of commerce. Much to our horror, however, as we

learn more and more about Obamacare, we discover, that (1) it does dictate the nature or content of the commence (it creates requirements for all health plans, and creates government agencies to make decisions about coverage and treatment), and, (2) it requires certain types of commerce (everyone must buy health insurance, or be fined). Therefore, as we now see, Obamacare is clearly unconstitutional. To Mr. Randall Gonzalez, who states in his letter [No constitutional objection, COURIER, April 10], ...Mr. Lyons appeal is based on the Constitution and yet he utterly ignores the words contained therein..., please see my letter of April 7, which specifically addressed the commerce clause (including the words contained therein). Finally, Im sorry, that Dawn Sharp [The rambling rants, COURIER, April 14] would rather shut down the discussion, than use it as an opportunity to contemplate the issues.

Fact or fiction?
Dear Editor: In the April 10th edition of the COURIER, Algird Leiga writes, we hear that businesses of all sizes are going to have to cut or cancel healthcare benefits for their employees and retirees because of the recently passed health insurance reform legislation. As a business owner, this is news to meI would have liked more information. Yet I couldnt help but note that Mr. or Ms. Leiga didnt offer any facts about specific businesses, specific cutbacks, and specific impacts being experienced due to this legislation. By making these assertions without citing facts, one is left to presume that the statements in Mr. Leigas letter are merely heresay and speculation, and perhaps even a politically-motivated attempt to discredit health insurance reform on purely ideological grounds. This is a sad sign of the state of our public discourse, where all too often opinion masquerades as fact, and truth is becoming that which you can make other people believe. This is dangerous for our democracy, the lifeblood of which is an informed citizenry (not a mis-informed citizenry.) In other words, merely stating that something is true, does not make it true. Here is one fact about the recently passed health insurance reform legislation: It will make health insurance available to Americans with pre-existing conditions who are ineligible for health insurance under the current system. This directly benefits members of my family.

readers comments
land generations ago for one purpose: to preserve it for the construction of new colleges. For many years it had no immediate educational use and therefore was subject to taxation. More than a quarter of a century ago the assembled presidents of the colleges had a money-saving idea: Establish the field station as an outdoor laboratory until it was built on, thus giving it an educational use and taking the land off the tax rolls. (One former college president remarked candidly a few years later, We outsmarted ourselves.) It was understood from the beginning that the field station was an interim use. Its ultimate use was as college campuses. It was named for the man who, with James Blaisdell, pioneered the Colleges group plan of continued expansion by founding new colleges. Through the years Robert Bernard fought the occasional proposal to sell the unused land, always insisting that the area must be preserved for the coming generations of new colleges. But when the first proposed new collegethe Keck Graduate Institute-came along to build on a portion of the land being held for exactly that purpose, a few faculty members and others who by then had established themselves at the field station organized a protest. They cleverly dubbed this fenced-off 86 acres Claremonts Wild Heart. They threw every block they could find against the Keck proposal. After months of battle and an expenditure of perhaps a million dollars, Keck gave up and established the college in an industrial park just north of Arrow Highway. The actual educational value of the Bernard Field Station is debatable, and Ill leave that for the academicians to sort out. But with the Keck experience to guide them, its doubtful that other potential college founders will ever come to Claremont to be part of our splendid Oxford in California. Its ironic that the field station keeping them out is named for the man who most wanted them to come.

A question of morals
Dear Editor: Most of those attacking the recent Health Reform law are Christians. And many of them deplore getting health insurance for millions of uninsured Americans who are desperately in need of medical help. How tragic that these Christians yield to greed and reject the path of compassion taught by their religion.

of Mr. Ed (the famous talking horse), starring Alan Young and former Brooklyn Dodger Manager Leo Durocher, who had returned to LA as its third-base coach. Mr. Ed, a huge Dodger fan concerned that several of the teams power hitters had suddenly gone flat, including Willie Davis and MOOSE Skowron, called Durocher on the phone with a few batting ideas of his own. While no one is exactly sure what Durocher relayed to Davis, Willie hit a tape-measure home run in his next at bat. Almost immediately Durocher invited Mr. Ed and his owner Wilbur Post (Alan Young) to a workout at Dodger Stadium. During batting practice, while holding a baseball bat in his mouth, Mr. Ed hit a hard line drive against the left field wall at Dodger Stadium against Sandy Koufax. By the time Mr. Ed was rounding third and preparing to slide into home plate for an inside-the-park home run, Dodger catcher John Roseboro had already left the batting cage en route to the safety of the Dodgers dugout. When Wilbur (Alan Young) suggested to Mr. Ed later that maybe he could play for the Dodgers, the horse replied: Why not? Theyve already got a MOOSE!

Upstaged by a horse
Dear Editor Of all the great baseball moments in the history of Dodger Stadium, perhaps none ranks higher than the pinch-hit home run that Kirk Gibson slammed for L.A. against the Oakland Athletics in the opening game of the 1988 World Series. Limping noticeably on his way to home plate on a bum leg, Gibson looked like veteran Hollywood character actor Walter Brennan at his finest. Well, looking back, Gibson was actually upstaged by a horse! It happened during a September 29, 1963 TV episode

Frances B. Zeff parapsychology professor, active volunteer, Scrabble champion

Frances Brown Zeff, a resident of Mt. San Antonio Gardens, died on February 22, 2010 at the age of 87. Ms. Zeff was born in Bebek, a suburb of Istanbul, Turkey, while her father, J. Wylie Brown, was working for American Express. When political turmoil increased in Turkey in 1924, the family moved to Paris, France where she began school speaking French, her first language. In 1929, the family transferred to El Paso, Texas, a very different world but one in which she and her 3 sisters, Jackie, Anita and Beatrice, thrived. In 1932, her mother, Anna Welles Brown, moved to California and settled permanently with her children in Altadena. Ms. Zeffs younger brother, Bob, a Webb School graduate, was born there. Ms. Zeff attended a series of schools as a girl, including Polytechnic in Pasadena, boarding schools in France and California and Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. In 1940 she entered Stanford University as a history major. She loved her years at Stanford and, after receiving her bachelors degree, she became a lifelong supporter of the institution. While at Stanford, she met the love of her life, James ODonnell, a promising son Phil and their 2 daughters, Anne and Beatrice, in Northridge. This marriage ended in divorce in 1965. Throughout these years, Ms. Zeff was active with numerous volunteer organizations, including the League of Women Voters, PTA and the local theater guild. In 1971 she wrote and published Voting Power, a book aimed at assisting and encouraging first-time voters. Ms. Zeff remained in the San Fernando Valley until 1978 when she moved with her husband, Ray Zeff, to the custom home she built on Balboa Island near Newport Beach. For the next quarter-century, she became widely known for her hospitality as she entertained many guests at her beach house. Meanwhile, her career as president of the Southern California Society for Psychical Research and as an instructor in parapsychology at Cypress College blossomed. She was especially interested in Kirlian photography, a method of photography that was thought to capture auras of living entities (plants, animals). Ms. Zeff frequently lectured on this subject and other psychic phenomena and held seminars and workshops in her Balboa Island home. During these years, she served as an active member of the United Church of Christ, Congregational, in Corona del Mar. She also became a first-rate Scrabble player, winning several tournaments. In June 2004, Ms. Zeff moved to Mt. San Antonio Gardens to be closer to her daughter Anne Stoll and her cousin, Carlotta Welles. She developed a wide circle of friends, supported many worthy causes, and organized the lunchtime French, Spanish, and German tables. She was a lifelong Democrat, an avid bridge player, a devoted music lover and, a few weeks before her death, was still winning games of Scrabble. Ms. Zeff is survived by her daughters, Anne Stoll and Beatrice Rector; her granddaughter, Aurelia Leroux; her grandson, Elliott Rector; her greatgrandsons, Xavier, Everett, Quentin and Tungsten; her sister, Beatrice ODonnell; her brother, Robert Wylie Brown; and her 6 nephews and one niece. A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. tomorrow, Sunday, April 18, 2010 in Kingman Chapel at the Claremont United Church of Christ, Congregational.

law student. They were married on October 24, 1942 and, a year later, he shipped out as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Marines to World War II activity in the Pacific, where he was tragically killed by a sniper on Peleiu Island in 1944. Widowed and with an infant son, Ms. Zeff lived in Los Angeles near the University of Southern California until marriage to writer Frank Quattrocchi in 1948. She and Mr. Quattrocchi raised

COURIER photos/Steven Felschundneff Former governor of Massachusetts and Republican Party leader Mitt Romney answers questions from the audience on Thursday at the Athenaeum at Claremont McKenna College. Mr. Romney spoke to a full hose about his political philosophy of fiscal responsibility and small government.

Romney sounds like a 2012 presidential candidate

here is no longer an off-season in American politics. After an election, pundits begin to speculate about who might run in the following election and not long after, candidates declare themselves to the public.

On Thursday evening, Mr. Romneys busy speaking calendar included an evening stop at Claremont McKenna College to discuss his recent book, public policy and the challenges facing the United States. Former Republican governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney ran unsuccessfully for his partys presidential nomination in 2008, but he has continued his political activism into the Obama era. He has not said anything about a repeat run in 2012, but he is widely viewed as a Republican front-runner. March brought the publishing of his book No Apology: The Case for American Greatness, a bestseller that discusses perceived missteps on the part of the Obama administration and Mr. Romneys proposals to lift America out of its current malaise. Mr. Romney interspersed his lecture with jokes and personal anecdotes, and reiterated his optimism about Americas future. However, according to him, America had arrived at one of its great inflection points where the role of government was rapidly changing. This change, unlike the American Revolution, the Civil War, and the turn of the 20th century, Mr. Romney did not welcome. President Mitt Romney speaks with a group of students during dinner on ThursObamas policies, domestic and foreign, day at the Athenaeum at Claremont McKenna College.

would lead to Americas decline if not stopped, he warned. The title of Mr. Romneys book asserts his belief in American exceptional nature and alludes to Obamas many official visits abroad, which Mr. Romney believes to be a series of unacceptable apologies that undermine national prestige. The first half of Mr. Romneys speech attacked President Obamas domestic economic policies, which he felt would dangerously enlarge government and undermine the American entrepreneurial spirit. His pre-political career in consulting gave him much of his

rhetoric. Half of the audience made its support for Mr. Romney vocal, while the other half maintained respectful silence. Tax increases, emissions trading, increasing the power of unions, and especially health care reform were targets of Mr. Romneys displeasure. He criticized his generations bequeathal of debt and unfunded entitlements to their successors, warning that President Obamas health care policies would lead to poverty. During the question and answer session at the end, however, Mr. Romney was asked about the similar health care reforms in Massachusetts he signed into law. He said he regretted the state legislature approved expensive mandates. On foreign policy, Mr. Romney attacked what he perceived as President Obamas resistance to promoting American values abroad and undermining military strength. The military threats from Iran and Russia and economic threats from China were not adequately addressed, he mentioned. He ended his speech with a call to (conservative) political activism among the nations youth and declared, This is a time calling for America to be strong. Half of the crowd visibly supported his cause at the end. After an extended discourse of his social conservatism that marked the question and answer session, he left suddenly. There was always campaigning to do. Earlier in the day he had given a speech in Costa Mesa. Copies of his book, pre-signed, sat out front, awaiting buyers.

NORIDAN continued from page 3

60-member group that seeks to help solve social issues through musical performances and workshops that teach about sustainability. All of the groups instruments are made out of discarded materials such as scrap metal, car wheels, Polyethylene (PE) pipes and used bicycles. The group also uses the discarded materials to create giant cyborg clowns that accompany the musically-fitted vehicles. According to Ms. Koo, the success of each event is based on whether the group has been able to connect with each community it visits. We dont measure our success the same way other organizations do, she explained. Instead we measure our success by how well we communicate with the citizens. If they enjoy it, then we have been successful. The South Korean social entrepreneurs have been honored with the Drucker Society of Koreas 2009 Social Innovation Award for their efforts. It was then that Drucker Institute Executive Director Rick Wartzman thought about including the group in a Drucker Centennial event. I learned about them last summer when I was in Seoul for a conference, Mr. Wartzman recalled. They combine sustainability and social entrepreneurship with arts, innovation and creativity. The stuff that people looked at as junk were the same materials they used to turn the junk into instruments. Its really exciting to have them here and its a great day. Along with the parade, noridan held a workshop on Tuesday to teach participants how to make musical instruments from recycled materials, including one-liter Coke bottles filled with enough air pressure to play the key of C when struck together. The group also hosted a forum on social entrepreneurship with students from the Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management. In another show of unity between noridan and the Drucker Institute, several CGU students performed in the parade alongside the South Korean performers on Wednesday. MBA student Kalib Kersh believes the experience was an inspiration to his own endeavors in business development. It was awesome, he said. At first, I was resistant about being in the parade and doing things with my body Ive never done but they [noridan] taught us how to do everything. I think in play is where discovery and innovation occurs and at Drucker, those concepts are really critical. I think some of the things Ive learned here will help me in my business development work. They bring together the arts and sciences and yet still have a consciousness of business and strategy. Wednesdays event attracted hundreds of Claremont Unified School District students from the elementary through high school levels. The field trip turned into a memorable occasion for students, many of whom merely observed the unique experience. Its really coolIve never seen anything like this, said CHS junior Femi Abon. Something like this encourages us to explore our interests and learn about another culture. Fellow CHS junior Kheder Alrazaa agrees. They showed us how to make instruments on Tuesday and then we had the parade today, he said. I hope everybody experienced what I experienced because I cant even put it into words. Now I feel like I dont need to throw everything away.

Claremont track yields mixed results in dual meet

ad the Claremont High School boys track squad won just one more race, the Wolfpack may have swept Los Osos in Wednesdays dual meet.
The CHS girls team emerged victorious over the Grizzlies, 85-51, but the Wolfpack boys team could not overcome Los Osos in a 72-64 loss at Claremont High School Stadium. The Pack and Grizzlies went back and forth in the boys competition, but the relay results proved to be the difference as Los Osos took first in both the 4x100 and 4x400 meter relays. It was a heartbreaker, said CHS boys track coach Veronica Amarasekara. Had we won the 4x4, we might have won the meet. Injuries slowed CHS as Khayree Wilborn-Jones did not run due to a hamstring injury he suffered at last weekends Arcadia Invitational. Claremonts AK Metoyer injured his hip at the same event but still competed in a

the mile run at 4:38.60 and placed 2nd in the 800. Other first place finishes for the CHS boys team included Jordan Scott winning the 400-meter race (50.21) and Andrew Ingalls topping the high jump category with a leap of 5-feet, 10-inches. Ross said this years team is the best its been since hes attended CHS. So far, this is the best weve done, the CHS junior said. During my freshman and sophomore years, we got whomped by Rancho [Cucamonga] and this year we beat them. We also were a lot closer to beating Los Osos this year. Were certainly better than last year and I think that with this being our last year in the Baseline League, we want to go out with a bang. I hope that we can go undefeated for the rest of the season. Katie LaVeaux and Elizabeth Yoon were both double winners for CHS in Wednesdays meet. LaVeaux posted wins in the discus throw (93-7.5) and shot put (31-2.5) events while Yoon took first place in the triple jump (30-2) and the long jump (14-0.5). Kori Carter won the 100-meter hurdles dash (14.50) before hamstring discomfort kept her out of action for the rest of meet. Teammate Bailey Sanin crossed the finish line in the 300-meter hurdles at 51 seconds flat to complete a Claremont hurdles sweep for the girls team. Alana Shine and Katja Whitham also recorded wins in the 1600 meters (5.36.0) and pole vault (10-3) respectively. This was a team effort and we really came together, Whitham said. I think we can definitely finish first [in Baseline League]. If we put in hard work and we dont suffer any injuries, we can do it. We have a really good team. Minus Kori Carter in at least 2 other events, CHS girls track coach Jose Ancona believes his team performed even above his expectations against the Grizzlies. I thought we had a good chance to win but I thought it would be closer, Coach Ancona said. It was great to see the team come together.
