Cheerleaders hard work pays off as honors roll in

Some hardworking kids have given El Roble Intermediate School something to cheer about. The El Roble Cheerleading Squad recently won the Cheer Pros State Championship at the Ontario Citizens Bank Arena, and then went on to be named Best of the West in the subsequent finals held at Cal State Long Beach. The proud 7th and 8th grade girls came home from the championship wearing sweatshirts commemorating the competition and carrying a banner to hang in the gym. “They were very excited. It was a good moment for them,” said cheer advisor Vanessa Mejia-Rapp.

Biking proves to be age elixir

Claremont resident James “Jim” Beasom III woke up on the morning of his recent 90th birthday and did what he has done nearly every day for more than a decade: He embarked on a 20-mile ride along the foothills on his bicycle. He finished his exercise before many Claremonters were even out of their beds. Picking up speed around the local hills has become a staple for the nonagenarian, who was one of the founding members of the Claremont Senior Bike Group (CSBG). The retired surgeon may be growing older, but he has no plan to change his routine. Where some fear age, Dr. Beasom welcomes it. “It keeps me young,” he said of staying active and riding alongside his CSBG cohorts. COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff
