BURBANK ? The school board will put off making a decision on the long-awaited installation of security-camera systems at Burbank and John Burroughs high schools Thursday. The purpose of the delay is to further evaluate the systems' cost and possibly find other sources of funding. Board members were concerned about the cost for the project, which would be paid for from Fund 40, district funds set aside to complete the modernization projects. "I'm tired of approving things that go in the Fund 40 budget when we don't have funds for the schools," board President Ted Bunch said.

HILLSIDE DISTRICT — Stone-throwing students are the impetus for the installation of security cameras at John Muir Middle School. Administrators hope the cameras' presence will curb rock chucking that has resulted in property damage near the campus for as long as anyone can remember, Principal Daniel Hacking said. "This has been sort of simmering for a while, but nothing too serious," Hacking said of the incidents of rock throwing from the schoolyard, which is rich in rocks from the quarry the campus was built on. In the last eight years the district has paid out a total of more than $1,000 in reported damages to neighbors, Hacking said.

Surveillance camera plans held up due to age of equipment and wiring problems.BURBANK -- Ever since renovations began at Burbank and John Burroughs high schools, surveillance cameras have been on the minds of school administrators. Four years and a number of cameras later, the two schools have yet to come up with the funds for a viable surveillance system. Over the past two years, John Burroughs High School has been working to raise funds for the systems. Their efforts, however, have been complicated by confusion within the district over whether or not the cameras had already been purchased.

AS IF YOU ASKED "Mommy! Make the scary man stop looking at me!" Without meaning to imply any real danger, or an intent to scare kids, that sniffling cry is what I imagine might be the response these days if any parent is foolish enough to let their child watch a Burbank City Council meeting as council candidates campaign from the public podium. Michael Bergfeld, a 53-year-old lawyer, is the latest of those looking to attract the attention of voters via City Hall's cameras and cable television channel.

In “Metallica Through the Never,” which debuted last week in Burbank and opened wider in cinemas this weekend, the multi-platinum heavy-metal band has delivered less a traditional concert film than a music-driven feature. “We wanted to give an experience that was different,” said Lars Ulrich, the band's enigmatic drummer, who cofounded the band in Los Angeles with guitarist James Hetfield in 1981. “So many concert movies are the same, so we thought if we weave a dramatic arc and different genres into the film, it would make for a more interesting movie.” Filmed for 3D and IMAX, the movie is not only a vivid greatest hits package performed by the band on an elaborate concert stage especially designed for the film, but interweaves a tale set in a post-apocalyptic nightmare, as an overly dedicated young roadie, Trip (played by Dane DeHaan)
