Great floor plan with incredible views! Con rat, ulat, ione to t, he 5tonee for our purchase of The recent death of long-time local educator and respected school board member Ed Eveland has created a vacancy on the Board of Education of the Long Beach Unified School District. Eveland represented District 4, which includes East Long Beach, Signal Hill and Catalina Island. The school board seat was expected to be announced last week and filled at a special election on Tuesday, June 10. The Board of Education is scheduled to act on a resolution calling for thg&12f ckal election. If apprGved, the deadline for candidates to file for the office will be Friday, March 14. In order to do so, a candidate must be a resident of District 4, a registered voter and at least 18 years of age. The election will be con- ducted by the City Clerk's Office of the City of Long Beach. City charter provisions require candidates to file nominating papers that include the signatures of at least 20 but no more than 30 registered voters who live in District 4. Nominations forms were available beginning Wednesday, March 5, at the Los Angeles -County Registrar's Office, 12400 E. Imperial Highway, Norwalk. There is no filing fee but there is a charge for each candidate's ballot statement. The cost is estimated to be $1,950 for printing the statement in English and Spanish. Since this is a special election to fill the unexpected portion of Eveland's term, whoever is elected will need to stand for election again in April 2004 in order to be considered for a full term. Members of the Board of Education are elected to four- year terms at regular elections.

Museum telethon set for March If you turned on Channel 3 Tuesday evening, Feb. 25, you would have seen a sign saying that the telethon was postponed "due to the Casino Fire." Well, the fire's out and the telethon has been set for Thursday, March 20, from 6 to 9 p.m. Thanks to the quick thinking and acting fire department and staff at the Santa Catalina Island Company, disaster was averted. However, the building evacuation and temporary power outage caused the museum staff to delay the telethon. Don't miss out on all the action. Be sure to tune in and support the museum and their 50th anniversary. For more information, contact the museum at (310) 510-2414.
