BURBANK — The sign says George Izay Park, but the sign man won’t have it. “It will always be Olive Park,” said Lon Melton, 62, a Burbank sign maker. “We made a lot of memories there.” Every year, Melton and his family claim their perch across the street from what is now George Izay Park to watch Burbank on Parade. The annual extravaganza of floats, marching bands and exhibits, which debuted in 1945, takes place this year April 25 and runs on Olive Avenue from Keystone to Lomita streets.

A female rider in the Cavalia Odysseo show suffered minor injuries after being dragged by her horse during the Wednesday night's performance, Burbank Fire Department officials said. Deputy Fire Marshal Jorge Martinez said a performer fell off her horse mid-show. While attempting to climb back on, her foot caught in the stirrup, and the horse dragged her on the ground for a short distance. The performer suffered a concussion and minor head injuries, said Martinez, and was transported by ambulance to a hospital.   -- Daniel Siegal, Times Community News Follow Daniel Siegal on Google+ and on Twitter: @Daniel_Siegal .

After 10 months on the force, Burbank Police Officer Matthew Pavelka responded to a call for backup at the Ramada Inn parking lot. It would be the rookie's last ride. The routine stop in November 2003 escalated into a hail of gunfire that left Pavelka dead and a veteran officer severely injured. The events of that night stunned the community and a police department that had not lost one of its own in a shooting since 1920. The ensuing manhunt, which involved hundreds of local, state and federal agents, ended when the 19-year-old fugitive, David Garcia, was captured by Mexican authorities after spending two weeks in a small town south of Tijuana.

Alison Sudol finds comfort in the woods. The singer-songwriter and leader of the band A Fine Frenzy grew up mostly in Los Angeles and Burbank, and even there she's often found herself gravitating toward a convenient corner of nature. On a recent afternoon, it was a picnic table along the pathways of Griffith Park, where she noticed something moving under a tree. “What is that? Is that a squirrel?” Sudol, 27, said affectionately, peering into the shadows. “That is the biggest squirrel tail I have ever seen.” Nature and nurturing is a recurrent theme in her music, going back to her 2007 debut, “One Cell in the Sea,” which mixed stories of romantic disappointment with wildlife as a metaphor.

Marisa Sanders remembers when television icon Huell Howser wandered into Burbank's Tallyrand restaurant two years ago. She gushed when he sat in front of her in a swivel chair at the diner's counter. “I said, 'I just want you to know - I know who you are,'” she recalled. “'My husband is your No. 1 fan.'” [For the Record, Jan. 14, 2013: A previous version of this story mispelled Marisa Sanders' first name. ] By the end of Howser's meal, the 20-year Tallyrand waitress had shared the whole history of the family-owned diner, including that both owners had met their respective spouses at the restaurant, and that it's famous for its hot turkey sandwich.

Gary Moskowitz MEDIA DISTRICT NORTH -- Standing onstage in a cream-colored gown under bright spotlights in front of more than 500 people, Lindsay Muriedas dropped her jaw and gasped as she was crowned Miss Burbank 2002. "I feel so honored, and that feels great," said a flushed Muriedas, 17, a senior at Burbank High School. "This group was so supportive and not competitive. We all immediately clicked." Miss Teen Burbank, Mallory Sorkness, was equally humble after being crowned at Sunday's event, which took place in the Burbank Airport Hilton's Convention Center.

About 25 residents attended a workshop at Bob Hope Airport on Thursday, many of them complaining that they don't qualify for a program to soundproof their homes despite the intrusions of aircraft noise. The workshop was designed to get public input as part of an update to a study looking at the impact of aircraft noise on areas surrounding the airport. One of the main reasons the airfield is conducting the study is to continue receiving federal funding for its residential sound insulation program.

BURBANK — City and school officials set foot on Burbank High School’s new artificial turf field Wednesday, getting their first look at a product of their $18-million joint venture. The sight of a sweeping green mat of fake grass, which was part of a larger, three-pronged project, offered a sense of encouragement to the excited officials, who wanted to get an early glimpse of the field, they said. “It’s just impressive when you spend your whole life in Burbank and drive by and all you see is dirt.
