The future may be uncertain for the class of 2009, but one thing is clear, senior Marianne Epstein told her fellow John Burroughs High School graduates Thursday. “The worst is over — no more state testing,” she said. Her speech, one of six by students, drew cheers from the crowd of cap-and-gown-clad students on the school’s football field. Bursts of confetti and screams of joy capped off the ceremony, which took place under stadium lights as a cool breeze blew across the field, waving tassels and red gowns.

BURBANK VILLAGE -- A tip from a customer that rat droppings were seen in Bobby McGee's restaurant has led to its permanent closure, a county health official said Tuesday. The restaurant was closed down on Dec. 7 during an inspection based on a customer complaint that rodent droppings were seen in the dining area, said Mike Spear, a county health department director. "Not only was a live rat found on the premises, which was injured in some matter, but numerous droppings were found in the food, equipment and on the floors," Spear said.

PTAs work to promote programs and weave art into the culture and curriculum of the schools.Alexandra Helfrich has always been a creative person, so when she sent her child to a school arts camp during the summer at Thomas Jefferson Elementary, she made a few suggestions. She had no idea what she was getting herself into. "A very wise person once said, 'Don't make a complaint unless you're ready to do something about it,'" Helfrich said. Before she knew what had happened, Helfrich assumed a roll that many parents are playing across the district -- creating what they call an "arts revolution" in the elementary schools.

GLENDALE - Burbank's second win in the Major Baseball Section 2 Tournament has left it one of two teams still fighting for the championship. The victory also enables the locals to go against a team that defeated them just two days prior - Sherman Oaks. In Monday's elimination game with Quartz Hill, Burbank looked to an offense that has been the team's strength throughout, and did not disappoint yet again, as two home runs and 12 total hits lifted the District 16 Major Baseball champions to a 14-6 victory at Montrose Park that eliminated Quartz Hill from the tournament.

I am dismayed and angry. I read the Los Angeles Times April 23 article on drinking water quality ranked by contamination with the rest of California and found Burbank has the second-highest water contamination on the published scale of water contamination. How can this be? We have Burbank Water and Power to provide us with quality services. Yet, Los Angeles' DWP provides better water quality. We share BWP's services with Glendale and Glendale has better water quality. We have been notified of significant rate increases by BWP. In the Mailbag column of the Burbank Leader for April 23 Thomas Saito questioned the new proposed rate increases.
