Dr. Lillian Seitsive has spent a lifetime bucking the odds. The daughter of Jewish immigrants who fled the pogroms in Russia, Seitsive entered medical school in 1927, a time when women typically became housewives or teachers. Still, she persevered. In time, she became a founder physician of Northridge Hospital, a member of the World Health Organization and an active supporter of medical facilities in Israel.

It is generally accepted as a universal truth that no one dies wishing he or she had spent more time at the office. Cy Breen, 83, and the happy holder of two jobs, doesn't buy it. His thrice-weekly commute, 2 1/2 hours in each direction, brings Breen from Cathedral City in Riverside County to the Encino office of Executive Car Leasing, where he has worked as a salesman for 32 years. A little self-pity would not seem out of order in someone half his age regularly enduring a drive half that long.

Many people look at their 80s as a time to enjoy retirement. Cy Breen, 83 years young and the happy holder of two jobs, thinks otherwise. His thrice-weekly commute, 2 1/2 hours in each direction, takes Breen from Cathedral City in Riverside County to the Encino office of Executive Car Leasing, where he has worked as a salesman for 32 years. A little self-pity would not seem out of order for someone half his age regularly enduring a drive half that long.

Dr. Lillian Paula Seitsive came to California with her late husband, Dr. Morris Rood, in 1953. They opened an office in Northridge before there was a bank, a post office or a hospital. All that has changed, but Dr. Seitsive, a general practitioner, still keeps office hours four days a week. She and her husband, Robert Epstein, live in Northridge. I was born in Manhattan in 1906 and was brought to Brooklyn when I was 6 weeks old. We had a very unfortunate family history.

At a time when California state universities are facing unprecedented budget cuts in the millions of dollars, a small group of Cal State Northridge students are hustling to get some of it back: $10, $20, $100 at a time. Like many other public schools, CSUN is starting slowly to raise private funds now that the state has become a stingy benefactor. But much of the fund-raising work is not being done at black-tie dinners, silent auctions or over drinks after the Big Game.
