Have you heard about the latest scam? Scammers are offering “free” genetic tests and claiming Medicare will cover it — so they can get your Medicare Number and use it to commit fraud and identity theft. They’re targeting people through telemarketing calls, health fairs, and even knocking on doors.
Her son Dean Carlson asks, "Please send a brief note to her through my email. How she made a difference in your life I would like to see just how many people's lives she touched through the years , I'd like to share with her this info while she can still comprehend the magnitude, impact she had on all you. I believe some 8000 students over 28 years went thru her classes. In advance I would like to thank you. This will be nice to hear how she touched all your lives!!!!"

Ron was the classic high school intellectual. Quiet, speaking mainly only to the other bright boys. I cannot remember his non-academic interests. He earned a scholarship to Johns Hopkins. He walked away from his high school graduation over some petty nonsense with a petty administrator, his scholarship having obviated the need for a diploma.
He later graduated in chemistry according to online sources (I never saw him after HS). He had various research interests, apparently including the wonderful world of recreational chemistry, which perhaps contributed to his tragic end, given the testimony of his behavior that night.
The affair led to considerable public outcry, and the city police and many other agencies were forced to change their use of force policies as a result.
One Richard Cohen produced a documentary of the event in 1980. The excerpts are eerily evocative of the past month in MO; only the races are changed to protect the innocent and the guilty.
It’s interesting how the news media, who are of course now made up of people younger than the event, have not made the connection. I asked around among people I know who knew him, and even some classmates are unaware of it.
If you're interested, a Google search on "ron burkholder lapd deadly force policy jerry brown william gates" will give you a good starting point.
Born Aug. 26, 1939, in Berkeley, Calif., the oldest child of John E. (Jack) Folsom and Betty Louise (Farmer) Folsom, the family shortly thereafter moved to San Gabriel. Aside from a brief, 10-month period in 1964-65, when he lived in Chicago, he remained in the San Gabriel Valley for his entire life. He attended Temple City schools from kindergarten through 12th grade, graduating from Temple City High School with the class of 1958.
He followed his father into the foundry industry and later held sales positions in the foundry industry before retiring and turning his energy and his love of cooking into a catering business. Working side by side with his wife, Myra, the "Cooknduo" prepared and served dinners for banquets and trade shows, mostly located at the Masonic Lodge in Arcadia. His association with the Masons spanned more than half his life; he became a Master Mason in 1961.
He was married three times, to Barbara Anderson, Tania Stremel, and Myra Roberson, whom he had met through their mutual association with the foundry industry, and to whom he was married for 25 years.
He is survived by his mother, Betty; his sister, Sally Ervolina; his sister-in-law, Joyce Folsom of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho; his sons, Fred Jr. (Jennifer), and Chad; his daughter, Clara Dyer (Marty); his grandchildren Shannon and Courtney Folsom; Kelsey, Alexis and Emily Bunt; Jonathan and Matthew Folsom; his great-granddaughter Brooklyn; and his friend since the age of 14, Art Leonard, along with numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
Excerpted in San Gabriel Valley Tribune on Apr. 26, 2019. The complete obituary is available at the following link.
