For all of his life, Gus De Felicis has been a giver. Whether it was his 50-plus years coaching in the Burbank Park, Recreation and Community Services leagues, or helping to start the Burbank Vikings Youth Tackle Football program, De Felicis has always been willing to give of himself to help others. So, in a lifetime of giving, it was fitting that De Felicis was given something himself recently. In June, De Felicis — a former standout high school football player — was honored in June with an induction into the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League Hall of Fame as a member of a legendary football team.

The saga of the unclaimed ring picks up in early 1999 when Marisa Vanzin, a former teacher from Bernville, Pa., found the 10-karat gold men's class ring among her late father-in-law's belongings. The size-10 ring has a blue stone and a bulldog on either side.

Irma Lemus MAGNOLIA PARK -- Marie Shively remembers when her son, all of 4 years old, read Dr. Seuss' "Green Eggs and Ham" from cover to cover - out loud. From that moment on, Shively said, she knew her son, Michael Tseng, had something special. Michael, now 17, proved his mother right when he was chosen valedictorian of the 2000 John Burroughs High School graduating class. He holds a 4.83 grade-point average. "I always knew he was different from the rest of the pack," said Shively, a 47-year-old mother of three and computer programmer for Washington Mutual.
