For Mary Moore Young, a longtime supporter of the Rehabilitation Institute of Southern California and a recent booster for the Pacific Symphony, bringing the two organizations together was a natural. "I had this idea of merging the two entities somehow," Young said recently. "I just didn't know how." But she and officials of the two organizations quickly figured out a way: a family concert by the orchestra to be held Sunday at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre.

For many runners, a 5K race is challenge enough, a 10K even more and a marathon incomprehensible. But Peter Strudwick of Buena Park isn't like most runners. He began running at age 39, and now, at age 55, has competed in about 250 10K runs and 50 marathons. Strudwick was born with virtually no hands or feet, but, "I've participated in so many (races) I've lost track of the number," he said. Strudwick's disability was the result of German measles his mother contracted during pregnancy.

The city has acquired a wheelchair lift for the City Gym and Pool that will enable the disabled to more easily use the pool for rehabilitation. Money to buy the lift came from a $95,000 Community Development Block Grant. The hydraulic lift cost about $15,000. The rest of the federal grant will be used to improve heating and for a filter and tile work at the indoor pool. The gym and pool, built in 1931, had lacked easy access to the water for people who can't use the pool steps.

Small is beautiful. That might have been the theme of Saturday's low-key benefit at the Santa Ana Country Club for the Rehabilitation Institute of Southern California, or RIO. In past years, RIO, which is in the city of Orange and provides a broad range of services to physically and functionally disabled people, has hosted larger and more elaborate benefits. But "this time we had a different emphasis," RIO Executive Director Praim Singh said as he extended warm greetings to arriving guests.
