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.

Janine Marnien "Good morning, St. Francis. Today is Tuesday, Feb. 25. Please stand for the prayer and pledge of allegiance." The same message greets St. Francis students every morning from KNIT host Terence Huntoon. KNIT is the school's television station, which hosts the daily morning news broadcast. It is pronounced K-Knight, after the school's mascot. "Most schools have some way of broadcasting their announcements," KNIT director and Co-president Morgan Underwood said.

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.

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)

As a photographer, you have to take care of your eyes. This means annual checkups, new contacts, new glasses, etc. You also have be careful when you?re shooting. Especially when it?s arc welding. Arc welding results in an incredibly bright point of light ? so bright that welders wear a special mask to protect their eyes. One of my assignments this week was to photograph a teacher at Glendale Community College who teaches welding. I knew my best shot would be of him demonstrating his craft.

Roosevelt Middle School and Glendale Unified's headquarters will be among the first sites in the school district to receive new camera systems in a district-wide effort to enhance security on campuses. The Glendale School Board approved allocating $3 million in Measure S funds in late 2012 to bolster security at its 30 schools. Since then, crews have made improvements to perimeter fencing and have installed panic buttons at the majority of school sites that allow school staff to make calls to 911 with a single push.

Police are looking for a man who allegedly stole a surveillance camera that had filmed him standing outside a pet clinic early on Feb. 14. The man was apparently loitering about 5:47 a.m. in the rear of Parkview Pet Clinic in the 1500 block of Canada Boulevard, according to Glendale police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot. But then he spotted a mounted security camera, which happened to have filmed him. That's when police said he approached the camera, removed it and stole it. While no similar thefts were reported that day in the neighborhood, Lightfoot said police are unclear about what he was doing in the area.

Last week, I found myself in a vaporetto, or water bus. The pistachio-colored waves gently rocked it back and forth as I climbed on board. After a day of rain, the sun had emerged, albeit cautiously, allowing me to fully revel in the history dripping from the brick-and-mortar buildings. I was in Venice, a city with eons of history, spectacular art and breathtaking scenery where more than 20 million people visit per year, making it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

Should we take at face value the comments by Glendale Police Capt. Carl Povilaitis indicating that the red-light camera program was not cost-effective (“ Police shut down red-light camera program ,” March 14)? If the reasoning behind installing the cameras was to improve traffic safety and the article mentions that citations dropped by half due to motorists being more mindful of traffic safety, then the logical conclusion is that a successful program should remain. So what gives?

Glendale police will no longerissue citations for red-light violations caught by cameras set up at four intersections throughout the city, officials said. The decision, which took effect Feb. 24, was made because the program had become a burden on resources, and police needed the officer assigned to reviewing violations out in the field, officials said. In short, the nearly 4-year-old red-light camera program became “cumbersome” and not “the best use of our resources,” Capt.

While overall on-location film production in the greater Los Angeles area was up last year, Glendale has had a hard time competing with neighboring areas in attracting film shoots. There were 234 film permits pulled in Glendale last year, down roughly 21% from almost 300 permits in 2010, according to City Clerk Ardy Kassakhian. Of those, 26 were for feature films, 91 involved television shows and 57 were for commercials, he said. The rest were for other types of film work, such as student films or music videos.

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.
