Re "Reporter Says She'll Conquer Burn Injuries," July 27. I have been following the story of Adrienne Alpert ever since her tragic accident back in May. That she survived to go on with her life and her loved ones is a blessing. Still, now is the time for her employer, KABC, to step forward and demonstrate the vaunted liberalness of our public media and make sure that her . . . injuries do not in any way hamper her media career. Even more, why not allow her to become a showcase of this life-valuing precept: No matter what happens in life, we can go on to our original success.

As she was released from the hospital Wednesday, TV news reporter Adrienne Alpert said she hopes to return to work as soon as possible, despite having been burned so severely in a news van accident in May that parts of her left arm and right leg had to be amputated. "From the knees up and the elbows in, I'm the same person," Alpert told a news conference of reporters and cameramen she has worked with for years. "I'm hoping to be standing on the other side of these cameras one of these days."

TV news reporter Adrienne Alpert, who suffered life-threatening burns in a May 22 accident, was listed in good condition Tuesday after what doctors said could be her final surgery.

Television news photographers from every station in the city circled the Grossman Burn Center on Monday to show support for KABC Channel 7 reporter Adrienne Alpert, who is expected to have her left arm amputated today as a result of a freak accident.

Without the support of thousands of friends and sympathetic strangers, Barry Paulk said Wednesday, he is not certain how he would have made it through the long days and nights since May 22--the day his wife, TV news reporter Adrienne Alpert, suffered life-threatening burns in a broadcasting accident. As Alpert's life hung in the balance, Paulk said, every card and each bouquet of flowers that arrived at the hospital kept hope alive.

Blame it on Bree Walker. The former KGTV (Channel 10) anchor, currently working in New York, established a new tradition for women in San Diego television news. Her hair looked simply mahvelous. "Her hair was the talk of the town for a while," KCST-TV (Channel 39) reporter Rory Bennett said. Walker's hair, carefully coiffed every weekday by Merle of Hillcrest, set the standard. Yes, it's unfair, silly and superficial.
