News of Claremont from India

Editor's Note: The recent news that the Pasadena Now website has outsourced its Pasadena reportage to India prompted us to look into our own cost-cutting measures. Adapt or die, as they say--Claremont Buzz

--Compiled by Anand Gupta.

Greetings from Bangalore to all of our new readers. The Insider has contracted with Bangalore Poom Puhar News Source PLC to having us provide news of the luscious City of Claremont to its readership and to the World by means of the World Wide Web. We hope to demonstrate by our actions and writing that news of Claremont gathered and edited in India can be as timely and hard-hitting as news gathered by your own cadres.

Without further consternation, Here is today’s news of Claremont:

Mayor Scott Pope of Claremont issued a proclamation inviting and welcoming all probable visitors in October to see the Fall Foliage in the hills and river valleys outside of Claremont town from Newport all the way to the Ascutney State Park in Vermont.

The Claremont Resort and Spa has initiated special summer Rate Plans. The Resort and Spa has a distinguished history going back to the 19th Century a.d. and has hosted the Saudi Royal Family in connexion with the Founding of the United Nations in 1945. Excellent views of the Bay Area are to be had.

City manager Glenn Southard very recently was criticised for releasing the police records of Mr. Obie Landrum, uncle of the unfortunate motorist shot and fatally murdered by the Claremont police department.

The Claremont Colleges entertained parents and guests over the weekend at their Commencement Exercises. Pictured is the outdoor setting of one of the events. Although dampened by an unseasonable May rain, the stately Palladian mansion built in 1708 provided a magnificent setting for the graduating students.

Some churlish College Students are heard to complain that Claremont is “dead” at night and on the weekend. This entry from Wikipedia should scotch that rumour: Claremont Main Road is regarded by many as the clubbing capital of the Southern Suburbs. The road is dotted with clubs and bars and is a lively hotspot almost every night of the week. Bars on Claremont Main Road include Lizzards, Stones and Caps. Clubs on this road include Sobhar, Tin Roof, Town, Springboks and Tiger Tiger.”

The Claremont football club squad takes on the East Freemantle Sharks on Saturday, 19 May, 2007, at the East Freemantle Oval. Come out and cheer our squad and support youth sports in Claremont.

More on Claremont College is taken from Wikipedia:

Claremont College opened in 1990 as a senior secondary Government school for students in Years 11 and 12. It provides a full range of courses, preparing students for university, TAFE, traineeships and employment. Its 900 students study either on-campus or off-campus. The college is located at Claremont, Tasmania, in a picturesque setting overlooking the Derwent River, 15 km from Hobart. It particularly targets students living in Hobart's Northern Suburbs.

This is all for now from your faithful reporter, Anand Gupta. I shall look forward to serving you again in future with choice news of Claremont.
