Around Town


The Claremont City Council will hold another in its series of neighborhood forums tonight. Councilmembers Linda Elderkin and Larry Schroeder will be on hand at the city's Joslyn Center from 7pm to 9pm to meet and greet residents and to hear their concerns. The City's website gives the lowdown on the forums:

City Council Neighborhood Forum - Joslyn Center
7:00 PM
660 N. Mountain Avenue
(909) 399-5460

Council Members are also hosting a series of Neighborhood Forums. Neighborhood Forums give residents from different neighborhoods the opportunity to talk with City Council Members in a relaxed and informal setting. Neighborhoods can discuss issues that are important to them, air concerns, share ideas, ask questions and get the latest information about topics and projects that are specific to each neighborhood. Although forums are scheduled for specific neighborhoods, you do not have to live in that immediate area to attend.


Claremont's soon-to-be ex-Village Trolley
seeks a new home. We wrote last week week about some of the possibilities for repurposing the poor mini-bus. Troop transport wasn't one of them, but we could see that happening. A reader sent in this photo of some potential buyers from far, far away checking out the trolley not too long ago (as far as we can tell, no photoshopping here):

Driver, does this stop at Tatooine?
