On Thursday, November 12 an unnamed driver clipped a dump truck and another car at two different intersections, which led to his car getting overturned.

Rosemary Adam, a longtime Claremont resident and former teacher at Claremont High School, died on November 11, 2015. She was 82.
She was born on June 19, 1933 in Bangor, Maine to Louis and Amelia Ferris, the oldest of three children. Rosemary was valedictorian of her junior high school class and was a cheerleader and voted “Most Popular Girl” at John Bapst High School. In a 1971 profile in Claremont High School’s El Espiritu yearbook, Ms. Adam wrote with humor about her auspicious beginnings. “Once, I won a drawing at a dance and my prize was a live goose. My life could only go up from there.”
A fast-moving storm brought more snow to higher elevations around Mt. Baldy earlier this week. Wind gusts also hit upwards of 25-30 mph around the Claremont area, clearing out the clouds and bringing cooler temperatures, especially at night. The weather will remain clear and comfortable through the weekend, with highs in the mid-70s and lows around 50 degrees. There is no rain in the long-range forecast. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger
Get ready to laugh—and possibly cringe a little—as Ophelia’s Jump puts on a play about things you’re not supposed to talk about.
The local theater company will present Honky, “a darkly comedic look at advertising, race, romance and basketball shoes,” from November 27 to December 5.
The troupe, which is in the midst of a campaign to fund a theater of its own, will perform the play at the Theatre Company Performing Arts Studio in Upland.
