Amber Willard GLENDALE -- Seniors and baby boomers have a new voice on the radio. This month, Glendale-based KIEV 870-AM debuted "Senior Focus," hosted by Joseph Solomon. Solomon, 54, got the idea to write a book about senior and baby boomer issues like financial concerns and health care after working with them as a certified elder planning specialist. "The book led me to the media," Solomon said of how he ended up with his own call-in show on the radio.

Joseph Solomon One of the most upsetting things I have encountered is the targeting and scamming of our senior citizens. Today's senior population has accumulated more wealth than any other population group and any other generation in our history. This makes them an attractive target for financial exploitation. It can start with the senior allowing a trusted caregiver to move in, ostensibly to look after them, and after a period of time they lose control of their property.

I watched the rebroadcast of the Sept. 11 program on local youth issues the other day. One thought that occurred to me is that there seems to be a contradiction between the actions of the Glendale Unified School District, and concerns for youth culture and welfare expressed on that broadcast. As I understand it, GUSD has one magnet school for high school students. This is the relatively new Clark Magnet High School specializing in technology and computer science.

Four of them -- Sgts. Ron Allison and Howard Singer and officers John Beltran and Charles Darensbourg -- will retire within a week of each other. The fifth, Officer Robert Boehlert, worked his last day June 1. Allison, who will retire July 3, joined the department in 1974.
