Judy Seckler VERDUGO WOODLANDS -- A recent two-day closure by the county health department of the Verdugo Park Stengel Field snack bar did not dampen the spirits -- or the appetites -- of its regular patrons who come to watch or play Connie Mack Baseball. In a routine, unannounced evening visit to the snack bar by an inspector from the county Department of Health Services, 15 to 20 fresh rodent droppings were found at shelves in the food preparation area, and on the ground adjacent the refrigerator, health officials said.

I am not a golfer. In fact, when I took golf as a physical education elective in high school, the only thing I learned was to reduce my divots from manhole-cover scale to the size of a small dinner plate. I?d never been to the Verdugo Hills Golf Course, so I was curious when I heard from a friend that they have a great snack bar that?s been recently remodeled. She sent out an invitation on Facebook to stop by last Monday for breakfast, lunch or dinner to show support for the golf course.

Jerry Lane Have you ever witnessed the realization of a dream that you saw long before as a tiny sparkle in someone's eye? I have, and, believe me, it is gratifying. This story starts a long time ago when I had just been discharged from the U. S. Navy. Jobs were scarce, but I managed to find a few little ones to tide me over until I could get settled in a big one. One of these little jobs involved opening up the Orange Drive-in on Sunday morning, making coffee and helping a young minister to climb a ladder onto the tar rooftop of the snack bar, carrying a wooden altar cross that he had made in his own garage.

Kathy Reger Souza, who spent many hours at Verdugo Hills Bowl in her youth, has fond memories of the now-demolished bowling alley. "It all started in 1970 with a brochure distributed by the city of Glendale Parks and Recreation Department at the end of third grade," she wrote in the June, 2010 Crescenta Valley Ledger, published by the Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley. Among the many offerings was "beginning bowling," which looked great to her mother, Norma Reger, who needed to get Souza, then 8, her two older brothers, Steve and Paul, and younger sister, Marianne, out of the house a few mornings a week, Souza explained in a recent e-mail.
