This month on the half-hour “Laguna Woods Stories” show, hosted by Dr. Tom Nash, we meet two very interesting Village residents – Johnny Leveque, who had a long career doing sound effects for Hollywood films, and Anne Gilbert, a Jew who escaped from Hitler’s Germany and also became a spy.


ThriveEvery Thursday at 9:30 am (produced by resident and professional videographer Scott Marvel)

This month Scott Marvel’s half-hour “Thrive” show will profile the Video Club, sharing what we do and how we do it, including the services provided free to all residents Tuesday-Friday afternoons in the Video Lab. The program will also take viewers to a meeting of the club’s Video One production team, where members will discuss recent projects. Don’t miss it! BTW, Scott is developing a template to profile other clubs through his on-going show to share ways they are thriving in the Village and to let resident viewers know more about opportunities for participation. We have the honor of being the first in this possible series.


Write NowEvery Monday at 11:30 am (produced by Village Television), hosted by Video Club member Charlie Redner with co-host Judy Saxon,

In June, the half-hour “Write Now” show will interview resident Judy Sterrett Rizzo, a retired nurse who is in the final stage of preparing her autobiographical manuscript for publishing. Judy’s story includes working as a psychiatric nurse in the ER (think “Chicago Med”) and as a consultant with the FBI during hostage negotiations. She came to the Village from Michigan and loves both Michigan football teams, having attended the University of Michigan as well as Michigan State. She’s a member of the Aquadettes and was active with the Laguna Woods Audubon Society before it disbanded. She also dotes over a cockatoo named Caruso. Well-traveled, Judy recently returned from a trip to China, and her many other interests and hobbies constantly keep her on the go.
