North Shore Drive will be Closed Thursday for Pro Cycling Time Trial

Big Bear, CA, April 8, 2015 – Big Bear Cycling is proud to host, for the third straight year, the Big Bear Time Trial of the 31st Annual Redlands Bicycle Classic. The Classic has the distinction of being the first race on the 2015 USA Cycling National Racing Calendar. Craig Smith of Big Bear Cycling said, “The North Shore of Big Bear Lake to the town of Fawnskin provides a spectacular setting and is the perfect location to host such a top domestic time trial event; plus along with our Amgen Tour of California Time Trial in May, it solidifies Big Bear’s position as Southern California’s cycling capital.” The Time Trial will cause some traffic issues that motorists should be aware of, however. Highway 38, North Shore Drive, will be closed from Stanfield Cutoff west to the Fawnskin triangle on Thursday, April 9, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Also, please be aware of heavy bicycle traffic on the southbound lane of North Shore Drive between Stanfield Cutoff and Division from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., as professional riders will be warming up for the races. The East Boat Ramp will be closed as well, but you may launch free at Big Bear Marina on Thursday only. Spectators wishing to watch the race and visit the team parking lot, are asked to park in the North Shore Elementary School...

Dental Screening Day Coming to Big Bear Elementary Schools

Big Bear, CA, February 19, 2015 – The Rotary Club of Big Bear Lake will conduct its annual dental screening program at all three local elementary schools on Wednesday, March 4. The program will be held from 8:00 am until noon at Big Bear Elementary, North Shore Elementary, and Baldwin Lane Elementary schools. All Kindergartners and 1st graders who have not previously attended public school, along with all 3rd and 5th graders are eligible to be screened. Parent permission and information slips have been sent home with students. The program was started in Big Bear by Dr. Bob Davies, a long time Rotarian and a prominent local dentist. Dr. Davies passed away in 2011, and the program is now named in his honor. This year, seven local dentists are donating their time to the program with Dr. Kristine Yoshida coordinating those participating. This free program provided by the Rotary Club of Big Bear Lake easily allows parents to comply with California state law requiring all new kindergarten or first graders to receive a dental screening during their first year of public school. For many students it will be their very first visit with a dentist, and the information derived from each dental screening will be passed along to...
