It may seem like déjà vu all over again but on Tuesday the City of Claremont officially began the process of drawing new council district maps. City Council adopted the current map after voting in November 2018 to transition from at-large to district-based elections.

On Sunday, January 2, about 125 parishioners gathered inside Western Christian School’s gymnasium to attend the first service of Claremont’s new Christian church, Ignite City Church.

On Monday, what some residents on Bonita Avenue initially thought was some type of explosion turned out to be the demolition of a building at Mt.

Kicking off 2022, Claremont received troubling news. As of Wednesday, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health recorded 628 new COVID-19 infections in the city over the previous two weeks. The winter surge is likely driven by holiday travel, winter weather and the less dangerous but still deadly Omicron variant.

In our year-end edition, the COURIER expressed hope that high vaccination rates in Los Angeles County would somehow blunt the rapid spread of the Omicron variant and that the region would avoid the explosion of new cases seen in other areas. But, as usual, the virus had other plans.

As we look back at the year 2021 it’s not surprising that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic dominated the news. However, Claremont got back on its feet.

By most, 2021 will be remembered as the year we all got along with COVID-19 — interpret that either as humans learning to live with the reality of COVID-19 or just us being nice to a virus.
