Pauline Marasek never cared much for brittle. “In fact, I hated it,” said Marasek, standing beside large sacks of her famous hard candy. “Most brittle — not mine — is hard, sticks to your teeth and is made from peanuts.” Ten years ago, she received a special family recipe from her mother: butter, sugar, a dash of corn syrup and nuts. Marasek uses pecans. She made the brittle by hand, and mostly for friends, until one woman offered to pay her for a batch.

Giving muscular dystrophy the boot On behalf of the Muscular Dystrophy Assn. and the many families we serve, I would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena firefighters who raised $2,000 in a recent "Fill the Boot" drive for MDA. On Aug. 25 and 26, they volunteered to stand at a Pasadena intersection and fill their boots with contributions from passersby. MDA relies on the efforts of dedicated people such as these amazing firefighters, and on the contributions of the kindhearted, such as those who helped fill the firefighters' boots with donations.

Mark R. Madler No more daybreak city parking lot calisthenics for Tina Castaldi and her Killer Boot Camp. The City Council on Tuesday unanimously upheld a denial prohibiting Castaldi from running her exercise program at a city park parking lot in the early-morning hours. Castaldi, operator of Castaldi's Killer Boot Camp, had sought council approval for a commercial-use permit after she was turned down by the Park, Recreation and Community Service Department.

After a library user complained about a man using a library computer to view pornography, Burbank officials say they plan to give librarians the power to eject offending patrons. The anonymous complaint letter, circulated around several city departments, alleged that a man was watching Internet pornography on a library computer, but after a complaint, the librarians on duty did nothing to stop it beyond informing the man that his behavior was offensive to other patrons. Although the claim was never verified, Library Services Director Sharon Cohen said officials were considering beefing up the current policy, while walking the fine line of not restricting 1st Amendment access.

MEMORIAL FIELD — Burroughs High junior kicker Christobal Escobar walked to his designated spot on Memorial Field with purpose. Waiting before him was the biggest kick of his young life. Escobar calmly marked off his steps, dropped his arms to his side, tilted his head up and surveyed the uprights. With just 4.7 seconds remaining in Thursday's Big Game against Burbank, and the scored tied at 35, the Indian coaches and players put the fate of the contest on his shoulders.

Every morning Wes Migletz fires up his ’72 Chevy pickup and drives the 30 miles from his home in Burbank to work at Toyota’s U.S. sales and marketing headquarters in Torrance, he feels something missing in his life. It isn’t family. No, that’s purring along like the engines of classic cars he bought and sold — the ’55 Thunderbird, ’62 Corvette and ’71 Super Beetle, the car he drove when he took his wife on their first date to Bob’s Big Boy. It isn’t location, either.

Mandatory apple and milk purchases with pizza are no more at Burbank high schools after students cried foul over the policy last month. At the beginning of the school year, students returned to a lunch policy that made the purchase of an apple and carton of milk mandatory with a $2 slice of Domino’s pizza. The new lunch items also came with a price increase of $1.25. But these changes were not arbitrary. Legislation that took effect July 1 required California public schools to eliminate candy sales and lighten up their snack options for students.

BURBANK ? Greg Sobiech, who guided the Burbank High School football program for five seasons, was fired from his head-coaching duties Friday, school officials said.

"I can't get into a lot of details with that, but there are some other things we want to see with the program, and we want to do some different things," he said.
