A La Crescenta woman is on a mission to solve a mystery involving a man with three last names for each of the three countries he lived in. The inventor, artist, filmmaker, medical student and businessman was born in Russia in 1895, and he would eventually create the Bolex line of cameras. The cameras have been used by professional filmmakers as well as those who simply wanted to document their lives. Jacques Bolsey's desire to bring filmmaking capability to the masses first came to life in 1914 with the Cinegraph-Bol 35mm motion-picture camera.

Students huddled, smiling, their faces transfixed to the mounted television on their classroom wall. Kun Kin, 10, mouthed the words to his news report as he watched himself read out loud on the monitor. Dong Yoo, 10, giggled at a teacher's confession to thinking Ashton Kutcher was cute. The two are members of the Mann Action News Network, a closed-circuit, almost completely student-driven broadcast at Horace Mann Elementary School. Topics on Mann Action News range from teachers' celebrity crushes to new school uniform fashions.

Sometimes I get tickets to sitcom tapings and game shows. Most recently I got tickets to "Let's Make A Deal" at the Sunset Bronson Studios in Hollywood. I invited my wonderful dog-walker Julie Cummins and her 18-year old daughter, Nicole, an adorable actress trying to make it big in Hollywood. Julie and I are both struggling financially, and while waiting in the long line of other costumed hopefuls, we fantasized about what we would do if we got the unlikely chance to make a deal.

Leslie J. Eppick I read with dismay the Dec. 12 column of Will Rogers, wherein he is quite disparaging in his remarks regarding Mayor Dave Weaver's dog adoption show he co-hosts with me bimonthly. While I am not surprised at his sarcasm since it is always his general tone in any given column, I am troubled as to why he would single out a pet adoption show to air his laundry. Our shelter has been serving Glendale since 1923. In the ensuing 77 years, to our knowledge, only two council members, Larry Zarian and Ginger Bremberg (both of whom adopted dogs from us)
