BURBANK HIGH — Technically speaking, the Burbank High girls’ water polo team clinched its first-ever Pacific League title on Tuesday. It clinched a share, anyway. But it was hardly satisfying. “They knew from Day One this was our goal, not to share a league title, but have one all are own,” said Burbank Coach Carlos Pelayo of his Bulldogs shortly after they had tossed him into the Burbank High pool in celebration of their 7-5 win against Crescenta Valley in the Pacific League Tournament championship match on Thursday.

In successfully aiding in La CaƱada High’s fourth consecutive CIF Division II boys’ swimming and diving championship, Spartans swimmer Chris Myers did exactly what he’s always done — pile up points in freestyle events. Swimming the backstroke before practice at the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center pool, Myers’ stride is smooth and sweet, his kicks minimal, his arms moving in a succinct motion like hands on a clock. “He’s changed so much since he first came to me,” said his swimming coach at Rose Bowl Aquatics, Jeff Jullian, who has coached Myers for five years.

CITY HALL — Residents will have to wait another nine months for the possibility of a dedicated park patrol officer after city officials last week decided to exhaust a dwindling federal grant for the service through June. The Burbank Police Department, as part of a citywide effort to shed some $7.5 million from this year’s budget, in July removed the lone officer charged with monitoring illicit behavior in parks and securing buildings and gates. A dedicated retail-crime officer detail was also folded into officer beat patrols for a total savings of about $250,000, roughly 20% of the department’s budget cut, police Chief Tim Stehr said.

Tiny tots and their families got soaked Wednesday evening in the pirate-infested waters at McCambridge Park. Nearly 500 people attended the annual Pirate Adventure Water Carnival at the park's swimming pool. Games and activities with a pirate theme were set up around the pool at McCambridge Park and lifeguards dressed as pirates, with the guys wearing faux-tattered vests and the girls in black skirts tied with rope. Children of all ages participated, with activities going on every 15 minutes specifically tailored to ages 5 and up. "A lot of these kids are from our learn-to-swim program, and it's great because they learned to swim in these waters," Aquatics Program Coordinator Mary Nelson said.

BURBANK — The City Council on Tuesday night unanimously approved the 2008-09 fiscal year budget by a 4-1 vote. The $728.6-million budget is balanced and reflects the city’s strong recuperation from harsh financial cuts issued in 2003, city officials said. Mayor Dave Golonski said those budget cuts were a result of a statewide fiscal crisis. “The state government was in debt, so they didn’t provide as much funds to local governments, which is typically used for city projects,” he said.

If everything goes as planned, aquatics athletes at Burbank High will have a new, state-of-the-art swimming pool to compete in this coming season. Too bad the Bulldog football players won't have the luxury of a playing in a new facility for their 2004 campaign. In fact, football players from Burbank, Burroughs and Bellarmine- Jefferson -- which play their games at the same venue -- will have to endure another season in an outdated, shabby and decrepit facility -- Memorial Field.

BURROUGHS HIGH -- The Burroughs High girls' swim team has the advantage of having a fine core group of four or five standout athletes. The group has been called upon not only to lead the young squad this season, but also to score the majority of the Indians' points in meets. In a Foothill League meet Wednesday against Canyon at the Burroughs pool, the Indian contingent was well represented, as it helped stake a 93-77 victory.

SWIMMING CIF Southern Section Division I preliminaries: Burroughs High's Olga Sepa and a relay team from Burbank had fine outings in the event Wednesday at Belmont Plaza in Long Beach. The freshman from Estonia had personal-best efforts in the girls' 200-yard individual medley and the 100 backstroke. In both events, Sepa finished 17th, just missing qualifying for the championship heat or the consolation final, where the top 16 get automatic berths.
