Behind the



hether by walking, biking, driving or skateboarding, the history of Redlands is all around. No matter where you are in the city, you can behold overlays of our town’s past as it exists in the present. Streets in the south part of Redlands do not run truly east or west, but rather follow a grid that had to do with the early irrigation patterns of orange groves. On the north, west and east of the city, the same


| | summer 2013

Redlands’ rich history comes alive during a tour of the city

pattern continues but often with a more traditional square-block layout. Palm trees, introduced by Redlands co-founder Edward Judson in the early 1880s, are ubiquitous. There are many varieties, and thousands of them line our streets, but only one is native to Southern California. There are many stone curbs throughout the city, each featuring granite cut by masons more than 100 years ago. Look down at the sidewalk. In the older sections of town, logos stamped in the concrete reveal which construction company installed them. In downtown, especially, concrete walks are stamped with the letters

“WPA” — a legacy of the Depression and New Deal in the 1930s and early ’40s when the federal Works Progress Administration built buildings, sidewalks and walls around the country. The rock walls around the cemetery are by the WPA, and so is the post office at Brookside, as well as the old City Hall that now serves as the police headquarters at the corner of Vine and Cajon streets. Along Sunset Drive, the curves are there not because Alfred Smiley and a group of distinguished businessmen lacked the technology to lay out a straight road. Rather, in 1901 and ’02 they decided to create a public scenic drive — offering

a different view and perspective with every turn. When you travel on Cajon Street, look straight ahead and you will see it lines up with the beginning of the Cajon Pass across the valley floor. Church Street at Colton is where Terrace Park is located. Recently restored and replanted by volunteers, led by members of the Northside Visioning Committee, it is a testament to late 19th century philanthropy with a dash of self-interest. When it was discovered that houses could be built in front of the mansions (some of which survive to this day), the owners, wanting to preserve their views of the mountains, donated land to make a linear park and preserve the view. At the east end of the park, a plaque explains how Church Street also got its name. Redlands also has an abundance of different types of architecture. Victorian

homes line the streets in many parts of town. Some streets, including Buena Vista, feature Mission Revival homes, with an Egyptian style from the 1920s thrown in to stand apart from the rest. Some areas feature beautiful large and small Craftsman style homes. Normandie Court boasts small Norman style cottages, while hundreds of homes from the 1950s and ’60s reflect a variation on the California Ranch style. The Mid-Century (20th, that is) style may be seen throughout many areas of Redlands, especially in Smiley Heights and near Redlands Country Club. Curiosity about Redlands can lead to interesting discoveries about its past. To learn more, be sure to visit the Heritage Room at the A.K. Smiley Public Library. It’s stocked with the history of Redlands, its people and places, ready for you to discover more about where your feet took

Redlands’ present and past in pictures Palm trees date to the city’s early days; at the far left, these sentries stand tall and proud at the intersection of Nevada Street and Palmetto Avenue. Above, clockwise from top left, a cyclist rides a pathway through Terrace Park, beautifully restored and replanted in 2011. Entrances topped by cone-shaped roofs are hallmarks of cozy Norman-style cottages, including this one at Clark Street and Normandie Court. A plaque marks the site of Terrace Congregational Church. The Works Progress Administration put unemployed people to work during the 1930s and early ‘40s, and WPA stamps serve as reminders of the local projects they completed. The Morey Mansion, built in the 1890s, has a distinctive roofline and is one of the city’s most widely recognized Victorians. It’s on Terracina Boulevard near Redlands Community Hospital.

Jennifer Tilton, professor of race and ethnic studies at the University of Redlands, center, with two “outside” students facing the camera and two “inside” students during the spring 2012 class.

Unique program brings students and incarcerated youths together, changing perceptions all the way around By PATTY ZURITA


he chilly room’s blue doors are securely locked. There are no student desks or blackboards. Thirty one young adults, some of them wearing University of Redlands apparel, mingle on the cement floor with others with baby faces and tattooed arms as they select a place to sit in a large circle of folding chairs. Although the surroundings may seem sterile, the two groups appear comfortable and relaxed. They greet each other by shaking hands as if they are old acquaintances even though they have been meeting together for only three weeks. A thin woman with long brown hair — one of the few adults in the room — passes out papers and pencils. In a leather jacket and dark

glasses, she doesn’t look much older than her students, but she is clearly in charge — busy yet relaxed as she prepares for the beginning of class. “One inside student and one outside student next to each other in the circle,” says Jennifer Tilton, professor of race and ethnic studies at University of Redlands. Each spring, Tilton teaches a class that brings together University of Redlands students and young men in the San Bernardino County Probation Department’s Gateway Program in San Bernardino to share an interactive college class. The course, “Juvenile Justice: Coming of Age in America from the Inside Out,” examines the subject through the prism of the juvenile justice system, asking what forces shape the paths children take into adulthood. This spring, 15 young men and women from

the University of Redlands — “outside students” as they are known in this class — shared a classroom with 16 inside students, a group of incarcerated youths in the Probation Gateway Program, an 18-month commitment program for male juvenile offenders that has been described as a more modern and effective approach to juvenile rehabilitation. The students meet for 12 weeks to fulfill their reading and paperwriting requirements. Tilton visits Gateway once a week in addition to class time to have office hours for her inside students. Once the students are settled, the class begins with sharing exercises. Both inside and outside students pour their hearts out. They talk about what their neighborhoods looked like when they were 8 years old, what their eyes have seen, what their hands have touched, what their hearts have felt. The class explores both the similarities and the differences in the schools, neighborhoods, and experiences of inside and outside students. Drugs, violence, equal opportunity for children, socioeconomics, growing up, and maturing are some of the topics discussed in class. “There is definitely a culture of drugs in all neighborhoods,” says Rosa, an outside student. “There’s fear of violence and drugs in poor neighborhoods. Richer neighborhoods also have drugs and violence but [it is not as obvious and] it is not cracked down upon by police.” When it comes to the role of the police, perception differs greatly among the inside students. “I grew up believing that cops were not there to serve and protect,” says Makio, an inside student taking the class in the spring of 2013.

“They were there to harass.” Inside and outside students share their experiences from different perspectives, but all their stories are filled with pain, laughter, and occasionally unexpected similarities. “The excitement of just being involved with college students makes my ego tingle. I say this because I can feel the unity that we have. I want so bad to be a college student, and I will not give up until I am one day,” says Anthony, an inside student who took the class in 2012. The class has changed the views of University of Redlands students about growing up. “I have always felt that blaming an environment or circumstance for involvement in crime is a big time cop out,” says Chris, an outside student who participated in the class in 2012. “In some ways, this is still true. I think that a person, should they truly commit 100 percent of themselves to it, can achieve success no matter where they are born. But that is not fair, and it isn’t even close to being fair. … “When I started to really listen, I couldn’t help but think of myself in their

Outside students from the 2012 Inside Out class

neighborhoods. As opposed to growing up in a safe suburb in Washington, [if] I were to grow up in a ’hood [in] Southern California, there is no way I wouldn’t be in juvenile hall right now.” The Inside Out model was developed at Temple University by Lori Pompa, founder and director of the Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program, which brings college students together with incarcerated adult men and women to study as peers in a seminar behind prison walls. But Tilton’s class is unique in the country since it brings incarcerated underage youth into the classroom with college freshmen and sophomores close to their age.

This unique class is made possible by the REACH collaboration between the University of Redlands, the San Bernardino County Schools and the San Bernardino Probation Department under the innovative leadership of Probation administrators Brenda Perez and Anesa Cronin, and Bobbi Caldwell, teacher and REACH coordinator for the county schools. Caldwell, who was fundamental in getting approvals to have outside students at the Gateway facility, brings her own brand of optimism to the program, telling her students, “If you believe, you will achieve.” When Perez visited the class in the spring of 2012, the change in all students’ behavior, level of understanding, and compassion had been such that she couldn’t tell who were the inside and outside students. Other University of Redlands faculty members are getting trained in the program and will help expand the model program in the near future. “This is definitely the most powerful class I’ve ever taught,” Tilton says. “It transforms both inside and outside students in at a level I didn’t expect.”

June 28 Casting Crowns Youth minister-musicians nationally acclaimed, sell out show By GEORGE A. PAUL


he Packinghouse has hosted several high profile Christian music artists in the past, but Casting Crowns’ debut at the Redlands church on June 28 tops the list. “This is the biggest one we’ve had,” said Jason Dean, youth pastor and concert coordinator at The Packinghouse, adding that it is “absolutely an honor” to have the band play here. “I definitely respect what they do and what they bring. I’ve heard nothing but phenomenal things. “They have an appreciation for the musicianship and what they’re singing about,” Dean continued. “I just can’t help but love and fall right into it and be a fan.” Lead singer/songwriter Mark Hall and other members of the Christian pop/rock group are youth ministers at Eagle’s Landing First Baptist Church

in McDonough, GA. The musicians work their tour schedules around church responsibilities. “I’m excited to see some of the things that (Hall will) be sharing and saying and glean from them,” Dean said. “When somebody is able to travel the country and see so many people, they tend to have a larger scope and perspective. Some of the simple phrases they communicate go a long way.” Formed in Florida in 1999, Casting Crowns initially came to the attention of country music vet and Sawyer Brown vocalist Mark A. Miller, who signed the band to his record label and became their regular producer. Over the past decade, all the albums have resonated on a national level. Hall, plus guitarist Juan DeVevo, bassist Chris Huffman, drummer Brian Scoggin, keyboardist Megan Garrett, violinist

Melodee DeVevo and new lead guitarist Josh Mix, can claim plenty of impressive achievements. These include more than a dozen top 10 Christian singles (chart-toppers such as “Who Am I,” “Voice of Truth,” “Praise You in This Storm” and “East to West”), five gold or platinum-certified studio releases, 15 Dove Awards, a pair of American Music Awards and a Grammy. Crowns songs often stem from Bible studies, devotions or talks during worship time. 2011’s “Come to the Well” album was inspired by the way people can serve as a well and how we draw from the opinions of others. No. 1 single “Courageous” sprung from an idea in Robert Lewis’ book about fathers and sons, “Raising a Modern Day Knight.” Matthew West, Steven Curtis Chapman and Tom Douglas co-wrote some tunes with Hall for “Well.” The latter collaborator

Freedom Up Spring Fest Last fall, The Packinghouse put on a concert series that was so well-received, the church decided to do another one this spring. “The outdoor amphitheater we have is one of the most beautiful places in town, enthused Jason Dean, youth pastor and concert coordinator at The Packinghouse. “There’s a grassy area, seating and a concrete area to put beach chairs. It gives artists an opportunity to do a half hour concert. “Redlands people love being outside; they just do,� he continued. “To be outside at a church service, have a concert mixed in with it and skateboarding for the teenagers is a great atmosphere.� The final performance in the Freedom Up Spring Fest schedule will be June 16 featuring renowned fingerstyle acoustic guitarist Doyle Dykes, who once toured with Elvis Presley backing group J.D. Sumner & the Stamps.

is an award-winning country tunesmith whose credits include hits by Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw and Lady Antebellum. Hall has said he believes there’s always a need for music that encourages people through psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. A few months ago, the band did shows in South America as well as a short, stripped-down U.S. tour in support of live album “The Acoustic Sessions: Vol. 1.� The sold out Redlands gig (a headline appearance at Fishfest follows the next day at Irvine’s Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre) is expected to be a regular electric performance though, with lyrics projected on screens. Additionally, the septet is featured in the spiritual independent film “Ring the Bell,� co-starring Chapman (now available on DVD) and a new CD, “Jesus Firm Foundation: Hymns of Worship,� alongside Chapman, Chris Tomlin, Michael W. Smith, Matt Redman and others.

Heart and soul

at the Bowl in Redlands



o me, the Redlands Bowl is more than a landmark. It’s more than its designation as the longest running free arts venue in the nation. It’s more than its role contributing to the character of the community. It’s a lifetime of happy memories. It’s holding my grandfather’s hand as a preschooler heading for our bench to see “The Sound of Music” (the first time) and getting ice cream at intermission. It’s doing skits as part of my fifth-grade end-of-the-year “Olympics” as a McKinley Bear. It’s getting Carl’s Jr. brought to me as a teenager if I was willing to hold seats. It’s standing backstage and nervous on dress rehearsal night of “The Music Man,” about to walk into the Procellis to sing and dance in front of hundreds of my neighbors.


| | summer 2013

It’s swaying and singing with my family and friends’ families before a Tuesday evening concert. It’s beaming with pride as my 9-year-old son filed onstage in his dress shirt and tie to play clarinet in the district honor band. It’s the joy my grandmother got from us taking her to every event, every summer, after my grandfather died. It’s holding onto strangers and crying during the ceremony marking 9/11’s 10th anniversary. And, it will be seeing my daughter sing a solo part at her graduation. For me, it has always been a place for making togetherness out of the people who are Redlands. It welcomes all. Long live the Bowl. Redlands native Toni Momberger is the editor of the Daily Facts and a contributing editor of Redlands Magazine.

Showing talent well beyond their years By JERRY RICE


ight talented performers — four string players, three pianists and a vocalist — will have important roles during the 90th Summer Music Festival at the Redlands Bowl on July 2. They’re the winners of the 62nd annual Young Artists Auditions, and after being selected from a field of 50 applicants they’ve each earned the right to play on the venerable stage under the stars before a large audience. “All eight will be able to say they’ve performed at the Redlands Bowl in solo,” says Ardyce Fowler, competition chairwoman. “It’s a magnificent career-launcher, to get them into schools (or to follow other pursuits). It’s a way to validate them in so many ways.” This year’s winners are Kathleen Chen, 18, Temple City, junior violin; Emily Dyer, 21, Cypress, junior vocal; Alexander Knecht, 21, Loma Linda, senior viola; Kevin Knowles, 15, of San Dimas, junior piano; Joel Oswari, 12, Moreno Valley, junior piano; Evan Pensis, 19, Phoenix, Ariz., senior piano; Mai-Li Putrasahan, 11, of Redlands, junior violin; and Philip Sheegog, 18, of Anaheim, junior cello. Besides the opportunity to perform, senior level winners also receive a $1,000 scholarship to use for music lessons, tuition or other expenses. Juniors receive $500 scholarships. All of them will join an impressive list of past Young Artists

This year’s Young Artists Auditions winners include: front row from left, Kathleen Chen, Mai-Li Putrasahan and Joel Oswari; and back row from left, Emily Dyer, Evan Pensis, Philip Sheegog and Alexander Knecht. Not pictured is Kevin Knowles.

winners that includes guitarist John Jorgenson, a longtime member of Elton John’s band; and Brad Little, who has played the title role in “The Phantom of the Opera” on Broadway and in national and Asian tours more than 2,250 times. There’s a good reason why so many Young Artists winners find success, Fowler says. “It happens because they’re already pursuing excellence. They’ve got their eyes on the goal. They know what they want and they pursue it and take the steps to make it happen.”
