Helen Hed Dowlin, who grew up in Glendale and now lives in Camarillo, writes that Bettie Hammond Johnson, her friend since kindergarten days at Doran Street School (now R.D. White), sent her the Verdugo Views article about Agnes Tupper. "It brought back memories of 65-plus years ago. She was our sixth-grade teacher and we all loved her. Her family home on California Street was around the corner from where I lived on Adams Street.

Gary Moskowitz A lot of sniffling has been going on this week at Columbus Elementary School, Principal Kelly King said. "It's not just the students, either," King said. "I've been fighting off a cold for the past few days myself. And I have a lot of faculty members sniffing and soldiering off colds." Local hospitals have not seen a big jump in patients coming in with flu symptoms, but some local physicians say increased travel abroad in the past year or two could be one cause for an overall rising number of sick patients.

Gary Moskowitz There were many questions asked, but a shortage of answers available Saturday at a town hall meeting on the state budget crisis. About 300 people crammed into the Buena Vista Branch Library in Burbank for the meeting, co-hosted by State Sen. Jack Scott (D-Glendale) and Assemblyman Dario Frommer (D-Glendale). The two legislators explained to the crowd that the governor's proposed cuts of as much as $35 billion to the state budget is supposed to be passed by a two-thirds vote in the legislature by June 30. It is not likely a budget conclusion will be reached by then, Scott told the crowd.

The old house at 540 West Broadway has sheltered many people during its long life - first as a private home, then as a boarding house and now as Wellness Works, which provides a safe haven for veterans through a program called 'Welcome Home Veterans.' It all stems from the vision of Nancy Rez, who back in 1984 began looking for a place for her new project, Wellness Works. Rez had earned a degree in biology from Occidental College, married and had two children. When her children were older, she returned to work as an office manager at Hoover High.

Assistance League of Glendale members provide school clothing for students of low-income families with the philosophy that they do better academically and socially if they are dressed as well as their peers. The women's philanthropic organization began Operation School Bell in 1981. Students are referred to the program by their principal, nurse or teacher. Parents are asked to sign a consent form and optional photo release form. During a school day, students are bused to the league's chapter house via school district transportation to be fitted for three school uniforms or three shirts or blouses and three pants, shorts or scooters, and given five pairs of underwear and socks.
