Column: Extra pump of bad news as favorite hangout closes

In Sunday’s column, I write about a Claremont Starbucks that has closed permanently, and also was a favorite spot of mine.

I started writing this last Monday as a potential secondary item to appear after the lead item Wednesday about Trudi Blair’s birthday celebration. But as I wrapped up I realized I had enough to make a column and set it aside. Maybe a Starbucks closing isn’t column-worthy, I don’t know, but it’s a place I liked, and I’m sure others liked it too.

Column: Smoothie shop to close after 23 years of blending in

Podge’s Claremont Juice Co. in the Village is closing Saturday. Thinking it’d be nice to get an item into my column prior to that, I dropped in to inquire and found not only the owner but the previous owner as well. Also, a Pomona man will be on “Wheel of Fortune” Friday and the Pomona Christmas parade is Saturday. All this is in Friday’s up-to-the-minuteĀ column.
