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.

With the 20-year period for replacing all-wood-shingle roofs with less fire-prone material nearing its Aug. 14, 2012, deadline, 128 homes have yet to make the transition. The drumbeat to shore up the last of the holdouts is expected to get louder as the deadline looms, with fire officials espousing the benefits of replacing the roofs. “Wood shingles are a pile of kindling on your roof,” said former Burbank Fire spokesman Ron Bell. “It was a great material back in the day, but it's past its time.” But with households still struggling under the weight of the protracted recession, some on the City Council may opt to extend the deadline further for a project that could run well past $10,000.

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.

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.
