She purchased her home when the area was all residential except 469 Burchett, which was built in 1925 to accommodate the area with a corner store complex.

Gary Moskowitz Students and faculty members at Glendale Community College this fall are putting themselves completely into the game of chess. Chess players this semester routinely gather around a new, life-size chessboard in the Plaza Vaquero at GCC.
