With World War II raging just over the ocean, the Burbank Unified School District opened the program with courses like aircraft and ship building, sending its graduates to help build the war supplies needed overseas. "They were teaching the women how to do jobs the men had left behind," said Charoleen Haley, a teacher and office assistant at the school. "They were focused on wartime efforts."

Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday. It lacks the family baggage and overly high expectations of other traditional holidays and the bittersweetness of birthdays. It is an equal opportunity holiday. Anyone can be your Valentine: husband, wife, lover, boyfriend, girlfriend, children, sisters, brothers, cousins, aunts, grandparents, parents and plain ol' beloved friends. My parents were married on Valentine's Day. Oh, and my favorite color is red. Last Valentine's Day, I wrote a song, "What Do Women Want?"
