Wooden honor official

The U.S. post office at 7320 Reseda Boulevard is being named the Coach John Wooden Post Office, under a bill sponsored by Rep. Brad Sherman and signed today by President Bush. Wooden, the former UCLA basketball coach, lives in Encino but that post office was already named for the late Lakers broadcaster Chick Hearn. Wooden’s daughter, Nancy Muehlhausen, lives in Reseda and I guess everybody figured that was enough connection. The new name will be dedicated at a ceremony on Wooden’s 96th birthday October 14.
