WASHINGTON — View has revisited some of the people and places it reported on in the last several months. Among them:
--Hollywood's Masquers Club, which because of declining funds sold its building and moved.
--Jimmy and Ricky Sperry, blinded in an accident 11 years ago, who received cornea transplants in August.
--Balu Natarajan, who triumphed over 167 other youngsters to win the National Spelling Bee in June.
Balu's biggest challenge has been filling the time he used to spend studying words with his mother and father, who were born in India. For three years, all Balu's spare time between January and June was spent studying words.
Asked if he missed all that studying, Balu said, "I think so. It's become a way of life in our household. It's a family project."
