By just about anyone's standards, it's going to be darn right hot in Claremont this week. And if you thought Monday was hot, wait until Tuesday where the high temperature should reach 107 degrees. Unfortunately, that high number will be sticking with us through Friday. Don't look for it to cool off a lot in the evening either, with low temperatures hovering around 80. The good news is city pools are open, and Raging Waters, above, is always a good option, along with the Puddingstone Reservoir sporting plenty of cool water. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger

On Wednesday, June 28, Madison Weigand’s day began as many did this summer, rising early so she could ride her bicycle.
When the day ended long after dark, she had spent 12 hours on the bike, suffered through wind and freezing rain, climbed an 8,432-foot pass, and ridden over 100 miles. But this big effort was just one of 70 consecutive days, of which a mere seven were rest days.

Although every graduating class at Claremont High School is unique, with many graduates going on to productive careers, the class of 1961 was a very special group of people.
Already profiled in the COURIER after their 50th reunion in 2011, these CHS grads have continue to meet every year, although moved their meeting place away from Claremont to Newport Beach for logistical reasons. Now after just finishing their 56th reunion, the group has become close friends all over again.
In 1889, not long after Pomona College’s founding, Claremont as a city was essentially nonexistent.
“The railroad station, the picturesque hotel, a single farmhouse and two or three diminutive houses half hidden in the brush constituted the material attractions close at hand. No other sign of cultivation appeared except a Chinese garden in an apparently swampy tract half a mile distant,” Pomona College founder Charles Burt Sumner wrote.
