As a young boy, Todd Jensen attended Roosevelt Elementary and delivered the Burbank Daily Review. As he got older, and the paper he delivered transitioned into the Burbank Leader, he was given his first job in journalism by editor Joyce Rudolph. And, as a student attending Burroughs High School, he was a fixture at the old Buena Vista Branch Library where library assistant Louise Paziak assisted him in finding the research materials he needed for his writing assignments. Last week, as a part of the Burbank Library’s ongoing Coffee and Conversation series, Jensen came full circle as Paziak introduced him to a crowd that included his fourth-grade teacher, Dorie Beaumont.

Before they knew it, the pair were on an airplane headed to Hawaii on a 48-hour time-share giveaway.
