Comedian-ventriloquist Dan Horn has earned a reputation as one of themost technically adept ventriloquists in the business, working with a cast of hand puppets whose arms he manipulates with a rod in his free hand. As one newspaper critic said, Horn's "visual effects are almost as stunning as the vocal ones." But Horn, an Irvine resident, is careful about how he is introduced on stage.

Good-deed doers are the darndest breed. They're never quite what you'd think. You hear about a corner of the city where people are making a difference, and you expect, I don't know, some father figure in Hush Puppies who makes good eye contact. Instead, here comes an ex-actor in a T-shirt who won't shut up. "So hello! Are you lost? Welcome to our neighborhood! Nice to see you!" Principal Dan Horn bounds down the sunny, bougainvillea-flanked sidewalk toward St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church.

Re "A school transformed," Aug. 26 I'm proud to be a 1966 graduate of St. Genevieve High School in Panorama City. My parents sacrificed to send me and my three brothers to this progressive educational institution.The primary focus then, as it is now, was on an exemplary education. We were taught discipline, values, character and a work ethic. Those educational and life lessons live on today with Dan Horn at the helm. Go Valiants! Suz (Rooney) Montgomery Ventura I can attest to the comportment of the students of St. Genevieve.
