As a 1968 graduate of Chaparral Elementary School, I am so impressed with how great the school continues to look.

It may have been cold enough to snow, but Claremont's weekend storm brought just enough precipitation to give lawns a good watering. Most of the snow fell above 7000 feet, shown here during sunset Sunday at the top of Mt. Cucamonga, reaching almost 8900 feet. This work week will have no rain, plenty of sun, and high temperatures in the 70s. Is winter over? Not yet. More rain is due this weekend into Monday. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger

A change in regulation is coming to a ubiquitous presence in the city—back houses.

A letter from Claremont mayor Larry Schroeder extolling the benefits of an insurance service has left Claremont residents confused.
The letter, from SLWA Insurance Services, offers Claremont homeowners optional coverage in the event a breakage or bursting of the home’s lateral water line. The property owner is responsible for the line, the letter noted, and would be covered for a small fee if they signed up for the service.
Tuesday's storm left a nice blanket of snow covering the San Gabriel Mountains making a wonderful winter wonderland just minutes away. Looks like Claremont is going to get more rain Friday and Saturday, which could leave up to a foot of snow in the high elevations.

The Claremont Colleges have produced leaders in politics, industry, medicine, science and the arts for well over 100 years. And the quaint, leafy, progressive town with an abundance of retirement living options has long been a preferred later-life destination for many of these same folks.
Perhaps no duo represents this distinctly Claremont yin-yang of youth and experience better than Myrlie Evers-Williams and Amanda Hollis-Brusky.
