BURBANK — A bagpiper played somber music as the family of longtime resident Andrew Ryan, a California Highway Patrol Officer who lost his six-year battle with cancer last week, entered St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church on Wednesday for his last Mass. Ryan, 49, succumbed to cancer April 22, leaving behind his wife, Kathy Ryan, and their six children. “Everybody loved Andy,” his brother Jack Kargodorian said. “You couldn’t help it.” Ryan, a 25-year veteran with the CHP, was also assigned to the governor’s Protective Detail.

Irma Lemus MAGNOLIA PARK -- Ten Burbank boys received The Arrow of Light Award, the highest honor a Cub Scout can earn, during a ceremony at Magnolia Park United Methodist Church. The boys, who were honored Thursday, had to earn at least eight activity badges to be eligible for the award, said Steve Eisinger, Cubmaster for Cub Scout Pack 201. Eisinger said many of the boys worked for nearly five years to be eligible for the award. The accomplishment also marked the boys' transition into the Boy Scouts, he said.

The Burbank Vikings Youth Tackle Football program’s Senior Black team is not exactly a squad filled with experienced players. In fact, 11 of the team’s 23 players had never played tackle football prior to this season. That level of inexperience usually sets a team up for a long, frustrating season, filled with losses and disappointment. Fortunately for the Vikings players, they had no idea they weren’t supposed to be successful this season. Instead, the squad of 13- and 14-year-olds has flourished, as the players have come together as a cohesive unit that has made a habit of winning.
