Trader Joe's to Open: The Trader Joe's specialty food market is opening a new store in San Clemente. The chain, which sells wine, gourmet foods and cheeses at discount prices, said it thinks that the seaside community has the kind of upper-crust, wine-sipping clientele that will make the store an instant hit. "San Clemente, with its highly educated and well-traveled customers, is an ideal spot for Trader Joe's," President John V. Shields said.

Good thing for Rialto Eisenhower that the Southern Section boys' basketball playoffs don't start for another two weeks. It may take the Eagles that long to figure out how to move the ball past midcourt late in a tight game after they nearly collapsed in the fourth quarter of a 73-65 Citrus Belt League victory Tuesday over visiting Fontana Miller.

The family and friends of Mabel Shields, who turned 100 on Sunday, think maybe so. For the last 31 years, Shields has been an Avon Lady, selling cosmetics, skin-care creams, fragrances and other items to faithful customers in her Glendale neighborhood and in the school district offices where she was long ago employed.

For more than 20 years, Joseph H. Coulombe has blazed his own trail as founder and operator of Trader Joe's markets. While other food markets opted for bigger stores, he kept his small. While the supermarket chains catered to the mass market, Trader Joe's set its sight on serving well-educated and well-traveled consumers.
