As a teen-ager, Marjorie Popple, 92, used to hike from Pasadena past acres of poppy fields to the Scripps Home in Altadena, her arms loaded with Christmas baskets for the elderly residents. "They don't have any legs now," Popple said, referring to automobile-obsessed Californians. "Everybody walked in those days. You weren't going to hitch the horse up, anyways." These days, Popple resides in the home for the elderly she visited in her youth.

Folks at the Scripps Home retirement facility in Altadena will be the first to tell you that some things get better with age--particularly IBM stock. The nonprofit home for the low-income elderly announced Wednesday that it had inherited $4.5 million from a trust created in 1928 with 100 shares of IBM stock, when the fledgling International Business Machines Corp. was hardly a household name.

A Christmas tree too near a fireplace burst into flames, causing $120,000 damage to a Scripps Ranch home Monday and sending a man to UC San Diego Medical Center with severe burns. Donald Johnson, 50, was listed in serious condition late Monday afternoon in the hospital's burn center with burns over much of his head, chest and arms, a hospital supervisor said.

A San Diego businesswoman was shot to death in a morning attack at her Scripps Ranch home, police said. San Diego police found the body of Georgia Haggai, 42, on the living room floor just inside the front door. She had been shot in the head and chest.

Neighbors called police after they heard screams and gunfire coming from the house, police spokesman Bill Robinson said.

A 14-year-old girl arrested on suspicion of killing her mother with a hammer will be tried as an adult, prosecutors said Wednesday. Rebecca D'Aoust was arrested Sunday at her Scripps Ranch home. She is expected to be arraigned today in Superior Court. Her mother, Rebecca D'Aoust, 56, a school counselor, died Monday. The law allows prosecutors to consider the severity and circumstances of the crime before deciding whether to charge a minor as a juvenile or adult. -- Tony Perry

In its quest to create a sense of identity and escape the shadow of neighboring Pasadena, Altadena has created a Heritage Committee to involve residents in historic preservation. "We want to get the community involved in establishing an identity for ourselves," said Tim Gregory, chairman of the committee, which will hold a garden party June 27 to raise funds for a survey to identify the historically and architecturally significant buildings in this unincorporated community of 45,000.

I am writing in regard to Mike Granberry's article, "Top Architect Tapped for Tough Museum Task," (June 10). While I was very pleased to read the article and the quotes from our architect, Robert Venturi, I hasten to note several key factual errors. First and foremost is the statement about the architecture of Irving Gill, described in the article as the architect "who designed the existing building in 1941." As many scholars and all aficionados of local architecture know, our museum, as it now exists, is the result of the work of two notable architects: Irving Gill, who designed Ellen Browning Scripps' home on this site in 1916, and Robert Mosher, who skillfully expanded on the then-named La Jolla Art Center in three different renovations (1950, 1959 and 1979)
