ballot box, she started away with my ballot. I said, "Isn't this the
ballot box here?" She returned and said, "Oh -- yes." And put my
ballot into the box.
Can't we have English-speaking people and people who can see in
charge? Let the people of other languages be present if needed!
Doctor among several kind people deserving thanks
Last week, my daughter and I were driving past a senior retirement
home on Honolulu Avenue in Montrose. I glanced over only to see an
elderly woman lying on the sidewalk, receiving assistance. My
daughter yelled, "That's Grandma!" We quickly turned around, and sure
enough it was Grandma.
As soon as I could identify myself as her daughter-in-law, I
noticed several concerned and thoughtful citizens had come to her
aid. One woman recognized her as a hearing-aid patient and printed
out identifying information on her. One man, in particular, was
preventing her from trying to get up, as she hit her head extremely
hard on the sidewalk. As soon as I realized he was a doctor, I
inquired as to who he was. Someone responded, "Dr. Plance."
Even though the paramedics responded, Dr. Plance remained with
her, trying to keep her calm, explaining her condition to the
paramedics. Not only did Dr. Plance ensure her immediate medical
attention, but one hour later he appeared at Verdugo Hills Hospital's
emergency room to check her condition. Above and beyond that, he
availed himself to review her CAT scan, explaining in detail any
notation he could find to the family.
Fortunately, Grandma was able to go home that night, albeit
seriously bruised and sore. I would like to thank Dr. Plance, the
paramedics, and all the caring citizens who stopped what they were
doing to help an elderly lady. Thank you again, Dr. Plance -- for
your sense of duty, and for your kind and caring demeanor. What great
citizens work and reside in Montrose.
It makes sense for GUSD to maximize state funding
