Claremont police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two men who broke into a home on January 4.

A multi-car collision triggered by a pursuit suspect going the wrong direction on the 210 Freeway eastbound in Claremont near Mills Avenue left one person dead and multiple others injured Monday, police said. The driver hit at least six vehicles and completely shut down the 210 freeway during rush hour. A crowd of onlookers stood on the freeway overpass, where several heavily-damaged vehicles were seen, including a silver truck reportedly driven by the suspect. California Highway Patrol were hoping to open the car pool lane to clear traffic which was backed up for miles. Traffic was also heavy on Base Line Road and Foothill Boulevard as drivers tried to find alternate routes. Police expect the eastbound 210 in Claremont to be closed well into the evening.

But the truth is, bridge is highly competitive and mentally rigorous, and its many enthusiasts may be getting the last laugh, literally.
“Playing games like bridge sort of forces your brain to lay down new linkages, new synapses, and it seems that the chemistry involved in making those new connections as you learn things, seems to combat the onset of Alzheimer’s,” said instructor David Ochroch. COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff
