Paying for our community
Dear Editor:I am grateful for Steven Harrison’sletter (The Teacher Tax, COURIER,June 5th) suggesting the need for citi-zens to rethink their relationship to thewider community.It brought to mind Oliver WendellHolmes’ dictum that “every time I paymy taxes I feel that I have bought ashare of civilization.” Such a sentimentmay draw hoots in our cynical age ex-clusively devoted—it often seems—to“me” and “mine,” but it deserves con-sideration.We are, in fact, herd animals. No onegets there by himself or herself. Thereare always individuals or institutionsthat provide the necessary direction andinspiration for achievement.As we hack away at our lifelines(education, environment, welfare) wewould do well to recall another importantobservation—that by Arnold Toynbee:“civilizations do not die, they commitsuicide.”

The Almanac has always been our most inspired annualundertaking. At around 100 pages, it can certainly test ourpatience, and the fact that it’s published in the hot summermonths certainly doesn’t help matters. Yet the thrill of seeingour work in print certainly makes up for the added pressure.It’s a labor of love, as they say.Our tradition will continue this year, but we’ve opted tospin it a bit. In addition to the typical community listings, weinvite community input on what we, Claremonters, like bestabout our fair town. Night spots, galleries, parks and coffeeshops are all on the ballot. See page 3 of today’s COURIERfor your entry form.Ballots can be mailed, emailed or hand-delivered to ouroffice at 1420 N. Claremont Blvd., Suite 205 B. If you are soinclined, stop by our booth at the Wednesday Night FamilyFestival and let us know what you think. And, the very tech-savvy Peter Weinberger has set up an email address atbestof@claremont-courier.com where the younger set (or theyoung at heart) can simply email ballots.We’ve added a feature for 2010 and are hard at work todetermine the top ten Claremont newsmakers this year. Thisdecision will ultimately be left to the editorial staff, but wewelcome suggestions. If you have a nominee, I encourageyou to email me at editor@claremont-courier.com.My hope is that this year’s journal will be one for all of us.I invite you to take part in the Almanac.
With summer, comes the Almanac

Police still searching for kidnapping suspect
P
olice have issued a public warningover an attempted kidnapping thatoccurred early Friday morning inthe city.
At about 12:00 a.m., a 20-year-old Claremontwoman was walking to her car in the parking lot of the Plum Tree Apartments in the 800 block of WestBonita Avenue.The woman saw a man near her car when he askedher for a cigarette. He then approached and grabbedher by the elbow asking her, “to come hang out” withhim, Claremont Police Lieutenant Shelly VanderVeen said. The woman pulled her arm away from theman and told him to leave her alone. She immedi-ately walked back to her apartment.Believing the man left the area, she walked back toher car a short time later. The man was again sittingnear her car and grabbed her with both arms, pinningher up against a vehicle.The woman struggled and screamed but was notable to free herself. The attacker dragged the womanby the arms for about 7 feet before she punched himin the face.“He grabbed his face and stumbled backwards,”Lt. Vander Veen said. “During that time, she was ableto get away.”The victim ran to her car and drove around forabout 45 minutes before returning home and callingpolice. She was not injured as a result of the attack.The suspect was described as a white male, 6 feettall, 200 to 240 pounds, in his late 20s, wearing ahooded sweatshirt and jeans.“The victim did the appropriate thing by not goingwith the suspect and by doing what she did in orderto get away,” Lt. Vander Veen said.Lt. Vander Veen also recommended that residentsalways carry a cell phone when walking alone atnight and report suspicious individuals to police.Anyone with information about this crime is askedto contact the Claremont Police Department imme-diately at 399-5415.
