Early in the second season of "The  Andy Griffith  Show," I ventured a suggestion for a line change to make it sound more "like the way a kid would say it. " I was just 7 years old. But my idea was accepted and I remember standing frozen, thrilled at what this moment represented to me. Andy asked me, "What you grinnin' at, youngin'?" I said it was the first idea of mine they'd ever said yes to. Without a pause, Andy responded for all to hear: "It was the first idea that was any damn good.

A Burroughs High senior recently earned a top score on the ACT exam, accomplishing something that fewer than one-tenth of 1% of students who take the test typically achieve, according to ACT spokesperson Katie Wacker. Nathaniel Low did not expect to earn a composite score of 36 when he took the exam earlier this year. “When I found out, I was surprised, considering I did not spend much time studying,” he said this week. The high school senior plans to study mechanical engineering in college and is applying to the California Institute of Technology, Stanford University, UCLA and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, among others.

PASADENA - There was no lack of opportunities for either the visiting Burroughs High baseball team or Pasadena in Pacific League play Tuesday afternoon. What both teams were short on in a three 3 hour, 13-minute game was key contributions. Despite lacking in a few areas, though, the Indians overcame a furious Bulldogs' five-run rally in holding on for a 7-5 victory. “I told the guys after the game that we're going to have one of these types games where not much goes right,” Burroughs Coach Kiel Holmes said.

BURBANK - Burroughs High was one of three Pacific League teams undefeated in league after its first two league contests. The Indians got there with a thrilling second-half comeback against Crescenta Valley last week. However, on Friday, to remain unblemished, Burroughs would have to take down defending champion Muir, which had outscored its first two league opponents by 72 points in blowout victories. “We knew how good they were and that we had to play above perfect football to even be in the mix with them,” Burroughs Coach Keith Knoop said of the Mustangs.

BURBANK - Perhaps it was just a little extra hustle that proved the difference for the Burroughs High girls' soccer team in Monday afternoon's Pacific League action versus visiting Crescenta Valley at Memorial Field. Indians junior forward Danielle Tilton fired a brilliant 12-yard goal into the top left corner of the opposing box in the 65th minute, having to outrun two defenders in the process, in what was a 1-0 victory for Burroughs, the first such triumph for the program versus the Falcons since Feb. 1, 2008.

GLENDALE - What could have very easily been labeled as a forgettable Friday was instead differently interpreted by Burroughs High first-year girls' soccer Coach Brady Riggs. His Indians struggled in both their matches of opening pool play action of the Los Tacos Holiday Festival Tournament at the Glendale Sports Complex, including dropping the afternoon contest, 5-0, versus Royal on a day in which the squad was outscored, 8-0. Yet, there wasn't much disappointment afterward, only some reflection.

BURBANK - An opportunity to move into a tie for fourth place awaited the Burroughs and Glendale high baseball teams before Tuesday's Pacific League game.

With the win, Burroughs improved to 9-9 overall and 3-4 in league heading into Friday's cross-town showdown with Burbank (5-11, 2-5)

GLENDALE - Doug Nicol has seen his share of hard-hit balls around the diamond. On Tuesday, the Burroughs High softball coach saw another one that he likely won't soon forget that helped pave the way for a big first inning for the Indians. Danielle Ryan hit a two-run inside-the-park home run high off the 40-foot chain-linked fence at Glendale High to spark visiting Burroughs to a convincing 16-3 victory against Glendale in a Pacific League game called after five innings because of the 10-run mercy rule.

Matt Schwartz has vaulted himself into some rarefied air at Burroughs High. During his senior season, Schwartz has continued to reach notable heights in the boys' pole vault. What has been more impressive is the athlete's progression on the school's all-time pole vault list in perhaps Burroughs' most illustrious track and field event. "To be among the best pole vaulters in school history is an honor," Schwartz said. "That list is pretty impressive. It's nice to go to school where the record is pretty high.

Burbank police investigated a threat made by a John Burroughs High School student Wednesday afternoon after the student - who has not been identified - alluded to a teacher that the next day could hold potential danger. “The student said something inappropriate in class about it being a bad day - tomorrow being a bad day,” said Supt. Jan Britz, adding the student was taken into custody. School administrators reported the threat to police before the end of the school day, and officers found the student had neither the intention nor means to carry out the threat.
