Burbank officials this week said plans by the state's pension agency for public employees to increase employer contributions will sting in the short term, but "is a good thing" for the city's long-term financial health. The California Public Employees' Retirement System, or CalPERS, last week approved new policies that will increase employer contributions in an effort to fully fund the system within 30 years. That means median contribution rates for public safety and miscellaneous plans could increase by 34% and 36%, respectively, over 10 years, according to CalPERS.

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.

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.

BURBANK — Seven private medical laboratories, including two based in Burbank, are accused by the state attorney general’s office of swindling the state out of hundreds of millions of dollars by overcharging the Medi-Cal program for various tests. The seven companies included five from Los Angeles County that allegedly charged the state at least six times more than they did other customers for procedures such as blood and urine tests. Medi-Cal provides discounted health care to the poor and disadvantaged.

Providence High School senior speaker Alexia Townsend and her 151 classmates got their diplomas Saturday at a peculiar place that had spooked her parents, she said. “They would have slept here to get good seats, but they didn’t because it’s a graveyard,” she said. But the solemn surroundings outside the Hall of Liberty at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills weren’t without meaning, she said. “Graves quite literally leave their mark on the world,” she said, explaining that her experience at Providence had left its mark on her and her peers.

It's been a pretty successful year in the Brooks household as far as sports are concerned. In the fall season, senior Tyler Brooks was named the Pacific League Player of the Year in girls' volleyball at Burbank High. Not to be outdone, her little sister, Caitlyn, earned her own accolades during the softball season. A force as a pitcher as well as a terror at the plate, Caitlyn Books, a sophomore, was recognized as this season's Pacific League Player of the Year. "When my sister found out that I won it she was so excited for me," Caitlyn Brooks said.

A long standing league championship drought was going to be snapped Wednesday. The Burroughs High and Burbank boys' track and field teams entered the final dual meet of the season tied and undefeated in the Pacific League. With both teams vying for their first crown in the Pacific League, the Indians were looking for their first title in 17 years, while the Bulldogs hadn't notched a championship in 29 years. Both of those titles came in the Foothill League. Behind outstanding performances by Matt Schwartz and Corwin Scherer, Burroughs was the team which was able to finally end the drought, besting Burbank, 79-57, at Memorial Field.

He was a scoring frenzy, a one-man tour de force who raised the level of those around him, ignited the sporting spirit of a campus long absent of much to get excited about and made literal and figurative waves by lifting a historically struggling program to CIF prominence while leaving his statistical signature upon state chronicle. A 6-foot, 185-pound muscled phenom with a lighting bolt for a right arm, he took a lightly regarded program and put it on the map. Along the way of four seasons of scoring parades and CIF triumph, Hoover High senior Hakop Kaplanyan provided record-breaking revelry, clutch histrionics and left a school and an area as a three-time All-Area Boys' Water Polo Player of the Year, as voted for the third consecutive time by the sports editors and writers of the Glendale News-Press, Burbank Leader, La Cañada Valley Sun and Pasadena Sun. "We were happy to have him here all four years and he made everybody around him good," says Jack Van Patten, Hoover's athletic director.

BURBANK - There were two contests in one taking place during Pacific League girls' soccer action at Burroughs Memorial Field on Wednesday afternoon. The first revolved around a brutish game in which both teams combined for three cards, two ejections, two warnings against the crowd and a physical level of play that perhaps neither the Bulldogs or Indians were aptly prepared. The second and most important, revolving around simple wins and losses and league standing, was perhaps lost in the above interference, as host Burroughs, which, behind a hat trick from junior striker Emma Pineiro, was victorious versus Pasadena, 4-0. “It was definitely a physical game and some of my girls are not used to that stuff,” Burroughs second-year Coach Eddie Garcia said.
