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.
It's hard to pin down an angel. Just ask Jacob.
And true to form, Los Angeles' own Heavenly Host is poised for flight once again.
The angels, created by Tony Duquette (or vice versa; who chose whom is still a matter of conjecture), have graced Immanuel Presbyterian Church, 3300 Wilshire Blvd., for a year now. They may be seen--"experienced" is a better word--at the church through February, when they will take wing for wherever it is that angels go once the word has been spread. (Japan is a possibility. So is France. Florida is out. Angels, particularly Los Angeles Angels, do not winter in Miami.)
About 200,000 souls have communed with the angels at Immanuel, bringing the total to 800,000 since their first appearance in Los Angeles (the "celebrational environment" is a "gift of love" from Duquette to the city). The Duquette Foundation has yet to secure a permanent home here, but has not abandoned its efforts. Heaven can wait.
