The final week of June was by all means one filled with gloom. Not just the gloom of overcast skies that we Southern Californians are used to in the year’s sixth month, but the gloom that comes from the loss of iconic figures that have played a role in the cultural fabric of our lives. While most of us didn’t know them personally, it’s a good bet that at some time or another we all marveled at the beauty of Farrah Fawcett, the talent of Michael Jackson, and the fact that over the years we received more mail from Ed McMahon than from close friends or family members.

In San Francisco, working for the city and county paid off -- she was able to rent a three-bedroom apartment for $1,800, which was below the market price for such a unit. Prices for three-bedroom houses in Burbank at roughly $440,000 were more than she expected, though San Francisco's market is even higher, Wyatt said.

Shanna Warren began volunteering at the Boys & Girls Club of Burbank and Greater East Valley in 2001, while working as a marketing director. That volunteer service changed the focus and direction of Warren's life so much that she left her marketing career to take a full-time position with the club, and in 2004 was named the organization's chief executive.
