California is no longer reimbursing Burbank for its curbside recycling because the operator of the city's recycling center is accused of making more than $48 million in fraudulent claims. The city received nearly $20,500 in curbside recycling revenues from the state last fiscal year, according to a statement released Tuesday by the city. It will not receive any additional funds until a new operator is certified by the state and a new curbside application is approved. The California Department of Resources, Recycling and Recovery - known as CalRecycle - denied Burbank's application in January, but the city appealed.

A woman enters unlocked homes, looking in mirrors combing what she thinks are silk worms coming from her head. A man is holed up in a room full of guns as he fights voices in his head that are telling him to kill himself. Prior to the establishment of a new mental health team at the Burbank Police Department, these sorts of calls would elicit a purely police-centric response that would do nothing to address the root of the problem, officials say. Now, the team is funneling these people away from the law enforcement grind and into a system where they can be connected to services that have a more long-term effect.

A third former Burbank police officer's firing was disputed by an independent arbitrator, who ruled that a 20-year department veteran, accused by the city of covering up misconduct during a 2007 robbery investigation, should get his job back. In an advisory decision, the arbitrator ruled that former Det. Angelo Dahlia, who has sued the city in state and federal court, should not have been fired, multiple sources confirmed.

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.

This is the third installment in a three-part series. Last Thanksgiving, while most of us were at home preparing our turkey and mashed potatoes, newly minted restaurateur Matt Peek was teaching himself how to cook. In that one day, he crafted recipes for the fledgling menu at Not A Burger Stand, a Riverside Drive hangout in the rancho district. Fortunately for the burger-loving public, the name is ironic. For just $5.75 Peek offers a nicely cooked patty with mild onions, some simple French's mustard and two melted creamy slices of Swiss cheese.

In Iran, Silvana Dermegerdichian was highly involved with her children's school, volunteering with the PTA and greeting everyone from the receptionists to the principal by name. But when the family immigrated to Southern California four years ago, she found herself linguistically and culturally isolated. Everything about their new Burbank schools seemed strange, from the coed classes to the dress code. “I couldn't communicate with the other parents or the teachers, it was really hard for me,” Dermegerdichian said.

After eight years of serving on the Burbank City Council, David Gordon was selected - for the first time - to serve as the city's mayor. Gordon has been elected three times in the last eight years yet has been passed over multiple times for the annual rotating position, which takes the majority vote of the council. But he did spend the last year serving as vice mayor, which is often a stepping stone to mayorship. “It took eight years…but we finally made it,” Gordon said after he was selected for the position, which drew a standing ovation from the audience.

Golfers can expect a new restaurant menu and synergy between golf and food operations at DeBell Golf Club next week with the Canyon Grille, the club's new eatery, slated to open for breakfast and lunch on Friday. Tom Shayman, 17-year owner and operator of the Burbank Bar and Grille on North San Fernando Road, has taken the helm of the club's restaurant. “We want to make everybody feel warm and welcome here,” Shayman said Friday. “We're really going to be invested in the golf operation.” Customers will be able to enjoy a whole new menu, which Shayman described as “California continental,” with comfort dishes such as macaroni and cheese, burgers and flatbread pizzas, along with ahi tuna and salmon entrées.

Burroughs High boys' basketball Coach Adam Hochberg confirmed late Thursday that starting senior transfer players Amaad Wainright and Rashid Ewing have left the team. Both players transferred to Burroughs from Kansas City, Mo during the offseason and played just one abbreviated season for the Indians. "Wainwright and Ewing have quit the team and left school," Hochberg said. "They left the team over the weekend and checked out of school Tuesday. Yeah, they bailed out on us. " Hochberg said a problem with the players' grades, along with being homesick, prompted them to depart Burroughs and go back home to Missouri.

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.
