LAKE ELSINORE - Marlene Paltza was working the phones on a recent Friday afternoon.

The administrative assistant in the Lake Elsinore city manager's office was setting up a meeting of area mothers who have family members serving in the armed forces.
When it happens later this year, the meeting will mark the rebirth of the Lake Elsinore chapter of the Blue Star Mothers, a support organization for military families founded in Flint, Mich., during World War II."
