In the late 1920s, the fledgling Lockheed Aircraft Co. was in horrible financial shape. Although its competitors Boeing and Douglas struggled mightily just to stay in the air, both companies had commercial aircraft that dominated the domestic market. Lockheed had none. Things were so bad for Lockheed that by 1932, the Burbank-based company was bankrupt and in federal receivership. The company needed a savior and needed one right away.

I could not help but chuckle when I read Robert Gross' letter "Preserving Pierce College." Gross noted that "the campus and farm land at Pierce College is a public asset that must be preserved for the educational opportunities of current and future generations." I agree. Why then does Gross object to Pierce College property being used for the Arts Park Project or the Children's Science Museum, Discovery Pavilion? Are these not educational? Would they not benefit current and future generations?

Robert Gross, president of the Woodland Hills Homeowners Organization for five often stormy years, said Monday he will resign after his current term expires at the end of this year. "I've been involved in the organization for eight years, and I've been president for the past five, so I guess it's time to bring in some fresh blood," he said. "I'll still be on the board, probably as one of its two vice presidents. The nominating committee is working on that."

Bob Gross, a Woodland Hills neighborhood activist, has little patience for residents who complain that Los Angeles police officers share part of the blame for rising crime rates and violence. As far as Gross is concerned, officers are doing a fine job but need additional help and better equipment. "They are good people, some very dedicated people, but they are terribly understaffed," said Gross, a purchasing agent for an aerospace firm and president of the local homeowner association.
