Hundreds of people, including congressional and state legislative representatives, attended a Veterans Day ceremony Wednesday at McCambridge Park. A flyover by the Condor Squadron gave way to the presentation of colors by the Los Angeles Air Force Base Honor Guard. Women waved hand-held American flags, and men sang along with Sarah Zohrehvand to the national anthem. Later, parents crowded around the eternal flame as kindergartners from St. Robert Bellarmine Elementary School donned Uncle Sam-style garb and sang “God Bless the USA.” “Just to know that they’re aware and respectful of the service to this country, to see what this community is doing for the veterans — that means something,” said Scott Osborne, an Air Force veteran of Operation Desert Storm.

Thousands of people filed into the Starlight Bowl on Sunday night to hear some live music, watch some fireworks and relax with family and friends. The event was called a "Salute to the Soul of America" and marked the beginning of the Starlight Bowl's 2010 Summer Concert Season. Armed with coolers filled with food and drinks, they trekked up the hills to the venue. Tickets ranged from $11 to $22, depending on how close one wanted to get to the stage. Ron Black came to the concert as a spectator, but said he would love to come out as a performer next year and do some country singing.

During his career with the Burbank Police Department, Edward Skvarna often thought that the then Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport would be a nice place to work. Now that he is chief of the Bob Hope Airport Police Department, he is finding out just how true that is. "If I'm not doing some public service, I don't know what I'd be doing," said Skvarna, who lives in the Santa Clarita Valley. "It's a natural place for me to be." Skvarna was named as the new chief of the 32-member department during a ceremony on Sept.

The power of your newspaper has been shown to me in a most lovely way. Since the Leader published my letter on the preservation of our aviation history, I have received a number of encouraging e-mails ("Turning our back on aviation heritage," April 22). Mostly the e-mails have been in agreement with the importance of this area's contribution to aviation history. I also received a newspaper article out of the April 29 Champion Progress, a Chino newspaper.

BURBANK — For hundreds of local residents who turned out to Memorial Day ceremonies across Glendale, Burbank and La Cañada Flintridge, the hours of tribute — complete with bagpipes, benedictions, names of fallen service members, patriotic hymns and roses — serve as an annual exercise in remembrance. But for Liam McKenna, a second-grader at St. Finbar School, such an exercise takes place weekly. “Every Sunday, I take a marble from the ‘Iraq’ circle and put it in the ‘home’ pile,” said Liam, dressed from head to toe in Army fatigues and wearing his dad’s rank, Sgt. 1st Class.
