When the media attacks: How to protect kids from bad news overload

hen James Holmes opened fire at a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises on July 20 in Aurora, Colorado, killing 12 people and wounding 58, it sent shockwaves across the country. In the days since, images of the orange-haired 24year-old assailant have seemed to be everywhere, from TV news to Yahoo headlines to YouTube clips.
Its hard to shield kids from this kind of ubiquity. The COURIER recently caught up with Claremont marriage and family therapist Ruth Aaron to discuss how to deal with kids troubled by this case, in which a night at the movies ended in senseless violence. Unfortunately, bad news is inevitable. So Ms. Aarons advice, which is to minimize and reframe discussions of frightening events, applies to any of the myriad crimes, wars and disasters permeating the media. Theres so much exposure to violence through television and the Internet, she said. Parents may be watching the news or older siblings may be discussing these matterstheres no escaping it. The media barrage of sad and scary stories is placed on top of pre-existing stress, which Ms. Aaron says seems to have increased among children in recent years. Their parents, who may be struggling with economic issues or facing divorce, are stressed. And their teachers are stressed because they have a lot of work-related pressure, she said. Since kids spend the majority of their time at school or with their parents, they can pick up adults concerns as if by osmosis. We underestimate the extent to which children mirror our stress, Ms. Aaron said. Its hard to address media-related stress in children when most adults dont recognize the way negative news impacts their own psyches, Ms. Aaron suggests. We greatly underestimate how what we see and hear affects us, she noted. We think, if we have a rationale, it balances or negates the emotional impact. As an example, Ms. Aaron cited the tear-jerking animal rescue commercial sponsored by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals starring singer Sarah McLachlan. We see those ads a million times, and its a worthy cause. But independent of our thought processes, the images of those poor neglected animals stimulate an emotional reaction, she said. Stress is a call to action, Ms. Aaron noted. When we see those mistreated animals, we want to defend them, to fend off the aggressor. Viewers can respond logically to the ads by sending money to the cause, or by volunteering at their local animal shelter at a later date, but it doesnt address the innate urge to go to the animals rescue. Children may feel especially powerless. What happens to all the built-up stress? We store it, Ms. Aaron said. It adds and adds and adds until it becomes symptomatic. The symptoms of stress occasioned by media exposure, like irritability, fatigue and impatience, may be difficult to recognize. Many of us chalk it up to simply having a hard day. But it is a very real phenomenon, Ms. Aaron emphasizes. She suggests getting proactive when disturbing images and narratives are looping on the television, acting to protect and redirect.

COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff Claremont counselor Ruth Aaron recommends that when children ask about acts of violence like the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado, parents reframe the context to make the child feel safe. She advises saying that it was a criminal act by a bad person but there are more good people than bad.

Parents can change the channel to cartoons or to a family movie. If an explanation is required, Ms. Aaron offers a sample script: Thats just a story on the news about something bad. We prefer to focus on good things. If kids have already been exposed to worrisome newssuch as footage of Mr. Holmes at his arraignmentand they have questions, Ms. Aaron suggests parents take a minimal approach, answering in general terms. You can just say, Hes a criminal and hes committed crimes, and were not really interested in crime, she said.

Ms. Aaron advises that parents answer only the questions raised by the child, instead of volunteering information. Its a departure from the parenting approach advocated by pop psychology, where openness and communication is stressed. Parents often consider newsmaking events as appropriate segues into broader topics like violence and policies such as gun control.
If your child sees Mr. Holmes on television and says, My friend said that man shot people, you might ask Is that worrying you? Ms. Aaron said. We can elicit what theyre thinking, which may be, Im wondering if we go to the movie theater is someone going to shoot us? Ms. Aaron also recommends parents avoid explaining incidents like the Colorado shooting in terms of the fact that the perpetrator is sick or mentally ill. It is an explanation that does little to assuage childrens fears, and instead may serve to stigmatize mental illness. We dont want kids to find peers at school who are getting special education or who have emotional issues and ostracize or bully or fear them, she said. After redirection, Ms. Aaron said, the next step is to reassure and empower kids. Parents can do this

by remaining calm, and giving kids a statistical reality check. A parent needs to present confidence and calm. If the parent is upset and gasping, the child will feel that way, she noted. Its like when a toddler skins his knee and looks to the parent to see how horrified he should be. If a child who has learned of a horrific event asks outright, Could this happen to me? Ms. Aaron says its important to give them what they are craving: reassurance. Say Thats not going to happen, she suggests. Someone might say, It could happen. Arent you misleading your child? But statistically, the chances are very remote. As for empowerment, Ms. Aaron suggests reframing bad news, whether in the form of a widelyreported killing spree or a natural disaster, as an emergency. Its a different spin. Instead of being out of your control, an emergency is something you can all be equipped for, she said. Whether children are worried about events at home or in a far away place, the most natural way for them to process their emotions is through unstructured play, Ms. Aaron said. If a child still seems to be having trouble dealing with stress, it may be time to seek counseling. Symptoms an overstressed child may display include unusual fearfulness, timidity or irritability, having bad dreams, and misbehaving at school or at home. Effective therapy for young children often includes facilitated play or art therapy, providing ways for children to process an experience without having to use words. The best form of therapy, however, is limiting exposure to media coverage of traumatic events, Ms. Aaron said. Looking at beautiful things, participating in enjoyable family activities and even just watching a comedy can help nurture a more positive worldview. Laughter is a natural counterbalance to stress, Ms. Aaron said. Sarah Torribio

COURIER photos/StevenFelschundneff Martin Maudal fits the resonator into one of his instruments recently in his Village area workshop. He named his guitars Carolann after his mother, who instilled in him the love of music. BELOW: The inlaid Carolann logo on the guitars headstock is one of the fine details of Martin Maudals handmade guitars. It takes months to create each instrument, with a large portion of the time devoted to letting the varnish cure.

Scrap wood keeps local guitar-maker flourishing

ahogany, ash, walnut and maple have literally become music to the ears of Martin Maudal, a local guitar-maker capitalizing on Claremonts bountiful tree population to bring to life his handmade creations.

Scrap wood gathered from his work for Claremont tree trimmer Chris Toovey has provided the local luthier with the makings for his guitars. Using what would have gone in the waste bin has in turn saved him countless dollars, helping to see his athome business, Carolann Guitars, flourish. Though only taking off in recent years, his work is now gaining the attention of local filmmakers, who are charting his work in a new documentary, not yet titled, which began filming this week. Mr. Maudal has found added value in his handson work with materials that have a special connection to his community. Theres amazing stuff growing here in Claremont, and there is nothing like working with your hands, making something you love and having people give you positive feedback, Mr. Maudal said. His passion for his hobby-turned-business, with the added bonus of locally-grown materials, is not lost on his customers. Its not just a musical instrument, its a piece of art, said customer Carol Hart, a former Claremont resident, of Mr. Maudals work. Its a lot more than

just picking up a beautiful guitar with factory parts, its hand-crafted and it all comes from Claremont. Its a piece of home that will always be a part of me. Mr. Maudals business started to boom within the past couple years as wood began to accumulate by the truckload in his 10th Street workshop. His fascination grew with the expanding pile of materials. Working with Chris, I started seeing what these woods were all about and finding out what they can do, Mr. Maudal said. I was always bugging him to learn more. Though now a tree and woodworking fanatic, its funny to think that the budding guitar-maker once despised what is now possibly his favorite material. Before working on his first guitar 9 years ago, his last memory of such endeavors ended with a less than favorable experience in seventh grade woodshop. I was horrible at it! Mr. Maudal said. I had no patience with it at all. But his desire for a new guitar and his lack of funds to purchase reversed his way of thinking. Now Mr. Maudal simply cant get enough. Its like opening a present, Mr. Maudal said of cutting a branch to find the intricate design of the wood inside, its swirling lines a piece of art in itself, and the process of shaping the wood is very meditative. His passion for guitar-making sprung out of his love for music, an affinity passed down to him by

Police pursuit ends in fatality, suspect arrested


Brian Vance Coleman, 33, faces an array of criminal charges including murder and vehicular manslaughter after his involvement in a fatal vehicle pursuit Sunday evening. The deadly crash came to an end just outside of Claremont borders. Charges filed by the District Attorney Tuesday morning, July 31, assert that Mr. Coleman may have been under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance during the time of the pursuit and fatal collision, according to Claremont Detective David DeMetz. Everything is preliminary, Det. DeMetz said in an interview following the preliminary hearing Tuesday. We do not have the [toxicology] results yet. In addition to murder and vehicular manslaughter, Mr. Coleman faces charges of driving under the influence causing injury, evasion of a police officer causing death, leaving the scene of an accident and stealing a vehicle with a prior conviction. Claremont police arrested Mr. Coleman Sunday night after a crash that killed another driver at the intersection of Towne and La Verne Avenues in Pomona. The devastating chain of events began near the intersection of Towne Avenue and Arrow Highway around 5:40 p.m. Claremont police officers received a hit on the truck driven by Mr. Coleman, indicating that it had been stolen out of Rancho Cucamonga. Mr. Coleman failed to stop for officers, leading them in a brief pursuit traveling south on Towne. Failing to stop at a red light at Towne and La Verne avenues, Mr. Coleman broadsided another car in the middle of the intersection, according to a statement by Claremont Lieutenant Mike Ciszek. The driver in the broadsided vehicle was killed. The Los Angeles County Coroner identified the man Monday afternoon as Jesus Bugarin Mercado, 54, of Pomona. Mr. Coleman crashed into a tree shortly after the initial collision and

,though he attempted to flee on foot, was arrested and turned over to Claremont police. Mr. Coleman was taken to a local hospital for minor injuries and later booked at the Claremont Police Department. Mr. Bugarin Mercado died at the scene, according to Claremont Lieutenant Shelly Vander Veen. Claremont police will continue to handle the criminal investigation as the Pomona Police Departments Major Accident Investigation Team investigates the fatal traffic collision. An arraignment was expected Tuesday afternoon, but a court date had not been set as of press time.

While working on of his custom guitars Martin Maudal uses the light coming in from the open bay doors to inspect the finish on Monday in Claremont. This instrument was on loan to a professional musician when the guitar suffered a fall and was returned for repair. Loaning the guitars gives Mr. Maudal valuable feedback about how they perform when played by a skilled guitarist. CAROLANN continued from the previous page

his mother Carol Ann, the namesake of his business. A folk musician herself, his mother immersed her son in the world of musical endeavors. Guitars were always lying around the house, Mr. Maudal recalled of his childhood. I cant remember a time we didnt have a guitar lying around. With his grandfather being a woodworker, the melding of both music and woodwork into Mr. Maudals professional lifestyle might have been inevitable. It was while living as a musician in New York that the 2 worlds finally collided. Desiring a new guitar, but unable to afford the purchase or find one that matched what he wanted, Mr. Maudal drew himself a configuration of his sought-after instrument and placed it near the entrance of his oneroom Brooklyn apartment. I dont know what took me over the edge to do something about it, but I put it where Id see it every day I walked in the door, and it just grew on me, Mr. Maudal said. With a plethora of New York luthiers at his disposal and tutorials online, Mr. Maudal found the task to be much easier and much more enjoyable than seventh grade woodshop. The biggest chal-

lenge was simply keeping woodchips from flying into my food, he joked of his small working space. Nine months later, his guitar was born and his career as a luthier began. It was like no song I had ever written. This [guitar] was a real thing that 200 years from now, if done right, someone could pick up and play. It was just this magic moment for me, Mr. Maudal, a professional musician, said. I could do this for the rest of my life. And so he did. He continued his creations after returning to Claremont a few years later, mostly building pieces for family members. Occasional difficulties arose with the expense of buying materials. Employment with Mr. Toovey provided Mr. Maudal with his initial idea to build from Claremonts trees, an idea he proposed to Mr. Toovey who admitted, I had no idea what a luthier was. But he consented to help his friend, even going so far as helping Mr. Maudal cart his wood scraps back to his workshop. The result is a piece of art worth noting, according to Mr. Toovey. His work can easily be defined as fine art. It takes so much attention to detail and craftsmanship, Mr. Toovey said. In addition to discovering his love for woodwork,

selling his first guitar to someone other than family provided another magical moment for Mr. Maudal. He remembers the details well, though it happened 4 years ago: an electric guitar made from black walnut. He still plays it, Mr. Maudal noted with pride of that first customer. The milestone moment was only equaled by finding a whole world of luthiers like himself in the Inland Empire. Mr. Maudal and a group of local instrument craftsman, including Folk Music Centers Richard Barnes, brought their handmade instruments together for the first time last December in a performance that showcased the artists instruments at the dA Center of the Arts gallery in Pomona. Mr. Maudal hopes the performance becomes a yearly staple that encourages others in the Inland Empire to find inspiration in the power of handmade masterpieces. To me, its more than just building guitars, Mr. Maudal said. Its about people learning to make things with their hands and to bring pragmatic value to art.

Following a move forward to go back to community


by John PIxley

I have a confession to make. Im a day behind. That is, most of the time Im a day behind. At least during the week. Its an unusual thing for someone in journalism to admit, but its true: I usually dont get to the Wednesday COURIER until Thursday. Make that Thursday afternoon. By the time I get done with my writing, going out to the gym and wherever else Im going, looking at my email and whatever else I have to look at online, reading the Los Angeles Times and a bit of the novel Im currently reading and watching the news and another television program or 2 on Wednesday, I am normally ready to call it a day before I can look at more than the front page of the COURIER. In the morning, I dont read more than the headlines in the Times; otherwise, I wouldnt get any work done. Occasionally, this being a day behind and not reading the Wednesday COURIER until Thursday afternoon means I miss out on something, like an event on Wednesday evening or Thursday morning. But, every once in a while, it actually turns out to be a good thing. Take one Thursday about a month ago. In the morning, as I was eating breakfast, I saw that there was an article right on the front page of the Los Angeles Times about something called the Little Free Library project. People are setting up small shelves with books, usually in front of their homes, and then encouraging others to take a book and replace it with another. As the sub-headline stated, it can lead to conversation, friendship and community. Then, in the afternoon, when I was done with my work and my errands, I settled into reading the previous days COURIER and found there was an article about a Little Free Library being set up in Claremont. All of a sudden, with this order of reading, I saw once again that what makes Claremont so unique is in how it does its own thing, even as everyone else is doing it.

An island of snobs

Dear Editor: On the pages of the COURIER about a year ago, editor Peter Weinberger memorialized his father, Martin Weinberger, shortly after he passed away. Peters tribute to his dad was obviously deserved and heartfelt. However he cited a quote of his fathers in which he putatively championed Claremont by stating that Claremont is an island of culture in a sea of slobs. Ironically this quote does not so much illustrate our towns virtues as much as it brings into high relief the snobby elitism for which our city of trees and PhDs is widely-known throughout our area. Worse, this attitude demeans the accomplishments of the decent, hardworking citizens of surrounding cities while seeking to elevate our own residents purely on the basis of their intellectual achievements which, to me, is a questionable measure of anybodys real worth. The difficulty lies in the fact that a PhD is earned in an insular academic setting and often has little to do with real-life situations. Some holders of advanced degrees dont seem to understand that their opinions on other issues (particularly politics) have no more legitimacy than those of a San Dimas

READERS COMMENTS
medical doctor, an attorney from Glendora or an electrical engineer living in Upland. Paradoxically in Claremont, it is especially difficult for local intellectuals to keep elevating their collective noses against a constant backdrop of silliness and over-the-top political correctness that sometimes gain the attention of even the national media. Among such stories have been: Even Diversity Has Its Limits: Claremont is a city that prides itself on its appreciation of diversity. In fact, Claremont schools are almost required to celebrate diversity whenever possible. However, diversity fans draw the line when it comes to one distinct groupconservatives. Witness the attacks the Preserve Claremont campaign made some years ago against a candidate for city council who was, gasp, a Republican! This did not sit well with local liberals so they, with the support of a prominent local pastor, launched a vile smear campaign in an attempt to defeat him. Diversity is ok but not on the city council for Gods sake! The campaign reached new lows of dishonesty and mean-spiritedness with each passing day, but fortunately clear thinking residents were turned off by these tactics and the Conservative won the seat. No Flag Waving Allowed: Just before Independence Day a few years ago, a sitting school board member (and teacher) liberated scores of American flags from the neighborhood in which he lived with the assistance of his adopted son. That was bad enough, but, in a sad display of blatant antiAmericanism, he had the gall to desecrate the flags by throwing them into the trash where they found company with banana peels, eggshells and adult diapers! Amazingly, he later ran for reelection on the school board and won. For many Claremonters extending support and tolerance to those residents having an alternative lifestyle excuses even the most egregious behavior they might commit. I wonder if these voters felt a greater obligation to reelect such a man to office because of the guilt they might feel if it appeared they defeated him solely because of his personal orientation. To Protect and Serve: One story which gained national attention was the infamous Cookie Monster episode in which a Claremont Mayor turned away girl scouts from selling cookies at a site she felt was unsafe even though the girls mothers were there to supervise. Just to make sure the girls didnt set up shop there, the mayor even called the police! Lesson? Claremont elitists always know whats best for us. Oh my God, hes killed a tree! Remember when the city put new traffic lights on the corner of Indian Hill Boulevard at Tenth Street? During the construction, a worker damaged a nearby shade tree seriously enough that it had to be removed. Local tree huggers went berserk with grief over the loss of this one nondescript tree. In fact, their outrage was so disproportionate that I think they would have felt better if the laborer was killed doing his job rather than to have lost a common shade tree. In the final analysis, these Claremonters need to be reminded that it was only a tree. Grieve for humans or even your pet dog if you need to, but expressing so much grief for a tree is an excessive response. Other stories come to mind such as the local Indian activists wanting to

As a resident of Claremont, I would want outsiders to regard us as a friendly, welcoming community in a beautiful setting. I think Martin Weinbergers comment didnt champion Claremont at all but rather drove a wedge between us and other communities. But the most troubling aspect connected to his words is that it conveys the juvenile perspective that one way we Claremonters feel good about ourselves is to put down others who live outside our borders. Calling the residents of surrounding cities slobs is no way to extol the virtues of Claremont, and such namecalling only serves to turn off fairminded people everywhere.

Claremont COURIER/Wednesday, August 1, 2012

James Leigh
Musician, writer, professor
James Jim Leigh, an award-winning writer and internationally-noted jazz trombonist who performed for nearly 20 years with the Baldy Mountain Swing Band in Claremont, died on June 18 of an uncommon lung disease. He was 82. Mr. Leigh was born on May 28, 1930 in Santa Monica to Lily King Westervelt, an artist, and Jack Leigh (born Leonardo Valles), a London-born actor and director who starred in a number of British silent films before relocating to the United States. When he was 12, Mr. Leighs sister Barbara gave him a copy of American Jazz Music by Wilder Hobson. Soon, he began rifling through the offerings at the Jazz Man Record Shop on Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood. As a young adolescent, Mr. Leigh snuck into a number of gigs at hopping Hollywood joints like the Jade Caf, the Apex Club and the Swanee Inn. The first of these underage excursions involved taking a streetcar to Watts and tiptoeing in to the Tip Toe Inn to see legendary jazz trombonist and bandleader Kid Ory. Riding the streetcar home that night, I felt as if I had just celebrated a rite of passagemy first live jazz. The music had its hooks in me for keeps, Mr. Leigh noted in an article he wrote for the Frisco Cricket. Mr. Leigh took a hiatus from jazz fanaticism while he turned his attention to high school, but the separation was brief. When Mr. Leigh became assistant sports editor for the Santa Monica Evening Outlook in 1949, he took his earnings to Jacks Record Shack in West Los Angeles. He later recalled that while browsing through records there, the fever hit me again, immediately and hard. When the Shack changed hands in 1950, its new owner, a pianist named Ellen Hertel, took it upon herself to start a house band. She gathered a group of green but eager jazz musicians, including Mr. Leigh who, having taught himself the ukulele, transferred the chords onto a 4-string tenor guitar. The group played a few amateur shows at Georgias Playroom, billed as Santa Monicas Number-One Fun Spot, before Mr. Leigh found his true instrumental calling when a friend was drafted, leaving his trombone behind. Mr. Leigh, who was excused from service because he was supporting his mother and sister, borrowed the horn. With their new trombonist, the ensemble, dubbed the Costa del Oro Jazz Band, made its first paid appearance at a gig sponsored by the Southern California Hot Jazz Society. In 1953, he married his first wife Carol, who would go on to become a noted jazz singer. Mr. Leigh, who by that time had moved to northern California, went on to become part of the San Francisco jazz scene, playing at venues like the legendary waterfront restaurant Pier 23 and with luminaries ranging from Turk Murphy to Bob Helm to a young Janis Joplin. Over the years, Mr. Leighs musical taste would expand to encompass many genres, but New Orleans-style jazz was his specialty and his passion. When a musician friend advised Mr. Leigh to find a backup career so he could always put food on the table, he decided to go back to college. He enrolled at San Jose State University, where he earned a bachelor of arts degree in English and American literature in 1957. With the help of a Woodrow Wilson fellowship, he earned a masters degree in English literature from Stanford University the following year. There, he made lifelong writer friends like Philip Levine and Bill Broder. Some people just seem to have more energy. Mr. Leigh, whom longtime friend Leonard Gardner said was a cheerful and invigorating companion, was one of these. He had a rich teaching career, serving as a professor of writing at San Francisco State College from 1958 to 1964 and from 1972 to 1980. He also wrote extensively, winning the Joseph Henry Jackson Award for fiction in 1961, the Playboy Prize for Short Fiction in 1969 and penning 4 published novels: Downstairs at Ramsys, The Rasmussen Disasters, No Mans Land and What Can You Do? The latter novel was made in to a feature film. Mr. Leigh also wrote reviews, articles and columns over the years for publications like the San Diego-Union Tribune and the Mississippi Rag. In 2000, Mr. Leigh published his memoirs, Heaven on the Side: A Jazz Life. Of Mr. Leighs jazz-drenched life story, Michael Steinman of the Jazz Lives blog, wrote:

OBITUARIES
ing with a small jazz ensemble called The Real-Time Jazz Band at the nowshuttered Nicks Caf, a friend introduced him to Claremont artist Martha Estus. The pair hit it off and became companions for the rest of his life. Ms. Estus loved Mr. Leighs sense of humor and talent, and says her knowledge of music increased exponentially during their time together. He was an extremely bright person, always engaging, and always had something interesting to say about world politics, she said. He was certainly opinionated and very liberal. He really believed in the people on the bottomhe grieved for them. Music, though, always lifted Mr. Leighs spirits. He had an incredible memory for tunes and lyrics from years and years ago, Ms. Estus said. He would come out in the kitchen and sing me some little ditty. The Real-Time players expanded and eventually became the Baldy Mountain Swing Band, a staple for 20 years at The Press restaurant in Claremont. Mr. Leigh spent the last years of his life doing what he loved most: writing prolifically and playing jazz. Along with performances with the Baldy Mountain Swing Band at The Press restaurant twice a month, he played with a traditional New Orleans jazz ensemble called Gremoli, which has played at the Montrose Farmers Market for many years as well as at an array of gigs and festivals. Mr. Leigh had a send-off worthy of the lifelong jazz connoisseur that he was. After a memorial gathering at Oak Park Cemetery in Claremont, The Press restaurant hosted some 100 of Mr. Leighs friends in a celebration of his life featuring jazz played by musicians he knew. Baldy Jazz has always been part of the spirit of The Press, said Robin Young, operations and entertainment manager at the popular venue. Jims humor, talent and intelligence will be sorely missed. Mr. Leigh is survived by his partner, Martha Estus; by his son, Gabriel Leigh-Valles; by his daughter, Alissa Leigh-Valles; by his sister, Penelope Leigh; and by his grandchildren, Misha and Remy Leigh-Valles.
Sarah Torribio

The book is full of these brief moments of revelation, quietly persuasive but never self-congratulatory. Any of us might have encountered Herb Flemming, and perhaps with similar results, but only Jim Leigh would have come to understand that moment as he has...and only Leigh would have written of it in such a sweetly understated way. What compels me is the steady, often amused, man and writer, experiencing his life and learning from it, every chorus, every day. One thing music and writing have in common is that they are portable professions. In 1965, Mr. Leigh traveled to Spain where he met his second wife, Ria Loohuizen, a native of the Netherlands who went on to become a writer of books on cooking with wild, gathered plants. The pair settled in Amsterdam for a few years before returning to San Francisco for Mr. Leighs second stint at San Francisco State, with 2 young children in tow. In 1980, the family moved back to the Netherlands. There, Mr. Leigh became part of a jazz orchestra called the La Vida Band, which toured throughout the Netherlands and in Belgium, Italy, Switzerland and Sweden. The bands performance at the 14th Annual Festival of New Orleans Music, held in Ancona in Switzerland and drawing 27 groups from 9 countries, was a highlight of that time period. Mr. Leigh returned to the United States in 1988, settling in Claremont when he was offered a job as a visiting professor of writing at Pomona College. Soon after, while he was perform-
