BURBANK — Burroughs High football Coach Keith Knoop realized his team would have to make do without a home field for the 2010 season. The coach was told the renovation project to construct a new stadium, running track and football field on the school's Memorial Field site would begin the first week of June. With his team being displaced for a project that would last past the 2010 campaign, Knoop and the Burroughs administrators had to schedule all the Indians' 10 home games on the road.

WEST BURBANK — A tentative agreement between the Burbank Unified School District and its teachers union will rescind all 67 teacher pink slips sent out earlier this year in exchange for six unpaid work furlough days for the 2010-11 school year, officials said. The furlough days will fall on three school days and three noninstructional days, and the agreement creates breathing room as district officials continue to address a structural deficit that leads to a projected bankruptcy by July 2012, said Gabe Soumakian, assistant superintendent for human resources.

CITY HALL ? Burbank officials this week distributed funding to more than a dozen local nonprofits as part of an annual scrum for dollars exacerbated by a slow-moving economy and increased demand for services. The City Council on Tuesday unanimously voted to dispense roughly $200,000 to 18 public service projects. The annual awarding of state and federal dollars pits revered programs against each other in a process that requires an unusual level of give and take on the dais, officials said.

I am grateful for the support of family, friends and the community during this past year and will always treasure this amazing opportunity.

When deciding on this year’s theme — “Burbank on Parade Celebrates the Big Top” — organizers wanted something colorful and easy for people to come up with ideas for their entries, said parade President Linda Barnes. “The beginning of the parade will be spectacular, starting out with the letters spelling out Burbank, and we are actually going to have a big top tent,” Barnes said.
