After a difficult search process, a veteran Los Angeles principal who later started a local charter school has been chosen the newest leader of the downtown visual and performing arts high school. Norman Isaacs, 67, was not the first or second choice of Los Angeles Unified School District officials, but he has long been viewed as a leader within and outside the school system for his role in developing and managing arts programs. "The challenge was extremely exciting," said Isaacs, who is exiting formal retirement and will set aside his six-hour-a-day workouts for an upcoming triathlon.

Tom Frandsen, the smooth-talking but affable TV host and newsman on the Los Angeles scene for nearly 40 years, has died. A family spokesman said Frandsen died Friday of the complications of a stroke at Scripps Hospital in Encinitas. He had been living in retirement in nearby Rancho La Costa. For many years, Frandsen's appearances were a fixture in Southern California living rooms. He began at KNBC after graduating from the University of Notre Dame's Navy flier program after World War II.
