Maya Kukes BURBANK -- Around the time that houses are decked out with icicle lights and Christmas trees peek from front windows, food drives and generosity abound. But the holidays were nearly six months ago and the food pantry at the Burbank branch of The Salvation Army is running low. The pantry serves a diverse Burbank community as well as people from North Hollywood, Tujunga and Sun Valley. It provides a hot breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday and gives canned and packaged food to anyone in need.

The city of Burbank asked if I wanted to pay up to $5 a month to support the city's purchase of renewable or green energy. A form was provided to sign up or request additional information. I did the latter, adding a question as to why the city had to beg for contributions to do the right thing. I received several pages of canned answers, although my question was skirted with, "Green energy is usually more expensive than other types of power. If we were to provide only green, energy rates would have to go up significantly."

BURBANK ? Answering calls to replenish depleted shelves at the Burbank Temporary Aid Center, one of the city?s main charities dedicated to assisting the homeless and low-income residents, a dozen real estate professionals spent the weekend collecting and delivering 11 shopping carts of food and toiletries. Dan Soderstrom led a team from Dilbeck GMAC Real Estate down city streets and through neighborhoods with the message that ?hunger doesn?t take a summer vacation.? ?This is something I made a point to do at my previous company and everyone was glad to pitch in,?

RANCHO DISTRICT — When Bonnie Lea hastily accepted an orange handbill on her way into Pavilions, the employee of a food distribution company didn’t expect to walk out with a grocery bag of donations. But as she strolled the aisles and glanced at the suggested donation list, something in her mind clicked. “I’m one paycheck away from that being me,” said Lea, of Burbank. “But I still have a job. Money is tight, with no overtime and hours being cut. But I can still help.

Demand for meals at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank has surged 34% from a year ago, with 1 million pounds of food now being funneled to more than 900 agencies each week, administrators said Wednesday. That’s equivalent to 750,000 meals a week as local nonprofits continue to lean on the regional food bank for help in meeting the demands of their clients, said Michael Flood, president and chief executive of the agency. Local food pantries are struggling to keep up as well, with demand nearly outstripping available supplies, administrators reported Wednesday.

BURBANK - Crescenta Valley High was the latest squad trying to derail the Pacific League juggernaut that is the Burroughs boys' volleyball team this season. In Thursday's league match, the Falcons were attempting to become the first squad to upend the Indians and only the second to even earn a game off of Burroughs. Unfortunately for the Crescenta Valley, it was not able to accomplish either. PHOTOS: Crescenta Valley boys' volleyball derails Burroughs Using a balanced offensive attack, the Indians were able to roll to a 25-21, 25-19, 25-17 win in front of their home crowd.

My daughter lives across the street from a “group home” in Sun Valley where the owner divided up every room in the house and jammed 23 males into this group home designed for six. After years of fighting with the city of Los Angeles, the home was closed because the tenants themselves filed suit against the owner. This is why Burbank must be very careful with these homes. It is difficult right now to keep illegal back houses from being rented let alone having to protect ourselves from the abuses in zoning these homes can have.

LA CAÑADA - The La Cañada and Burbank High softball teams faced off in a nonleague double-header among area powers before returning to play in the Rio Hondo and Pacific leagues respectively, in which each squad has started with two wins. “We wanted to play La Cañada. [Spartans Coach KC Mathews] always has a real good, well-coached team and they play good, solid defense,” Burbank Coach Mike Delaney said. “We wanted to have something before going into the heart of our league schedule.” The visiting Bulldogs, ranked No. 5 in Division III of the CIF-Southern Section, came away with a sweep against the Spartans on Saturday with Bulldogs hurler Caitlyn Brooks going the distance in both wins.

BURBANK - Since it resurrected its boys' varsity volleyball program two seasons ago, Burbank High has had a tough time against cross-town rival Burroughs. In two years, the Indians dominated the city competition, earning sweeps in all four matches en route to back-to-back Pacific League championships. PHOTOS: Burroughs boys' volleyball bests rival Burbank For this season's first meeting between the squads, at least on paper, it looked as if Burroughs might have its hands full with the upstart Bulldogs.

BURBANK - For the first time in more than two decades, the Burbank High baseball team entered the league campaign as a defending champion. Last season, the Bulldogs shared the Pacific League crown with Crescenta Valley for the program's first title since 1991. However, after the graduation of 14 seniors, this year's team doesn't much look like the squad from a season ago. Burbank played like an inexperienced squad in its league opener at home Tuesday against Arcadia, running itself out of scoring opportunities with baserunning mistakes and failing to score a run despite putting runners on base in every inning.

Most of the questions people ask me are easy. Can you use "nauseous" as a synonym of "nauseated" to mean "sick feeling"? The answer is right in the dictionary under the listing for "nauseous," and that answer is yes. Is it true you're not supposed to end a sentence with a preposition? No, that's a myth, as any grammar reference from Fowler's to Strunk and White will quickly prove. Can you use "their" to refer to a singular person even though it's supposed to be plural? Again, the answer is right in the dictionary.

Renovating the Burbank Airport is necessary to make it more conducive for the airplane passengers' comfort and safety. I have traveled out of the Burbank Airport for many years and have found it to be a great location from where I have lived. Easy access, easy ticketing, easy boarding and less people to confront. In the renovating plans, please leave a little bit of the charm of the airport to make it feel like a small airport. The city of Burbank should take pride in their airport.

BURBANK - A Burroughs High girls' basketball squad that has shown resiliency all season did so once again in its CIF Southern Section Division I-A quarterfinal playoff game on Saturday evening. Previous instances resulted in the Indians coming out victorious in the midst of an undefeated Pacific League season that gave them the title and, more recently, two postseason victories that set up a home showdown with Huntington Beach for the right to clinch a berth in the semifinals. PHOTOS: Burroughs vs. Huntington Beach girls' basketball in CIF quarterfinal playoffs Burroughs had a spirited second-half comeback attempt against the Oilers in front of a near capacity crowd at Burroughs High, but a first half littered with turnovers proved to be too much to overcome for the Indians, who succumbed to relentless defense and an athletic Huntington Beach team that has dropped just two games all season.

When the Bellarmine-Jefferson High boys' basketball team entered the CIF Southern Section Division V-A playoffs as the No. 2 seed, the team's players and coaches realized they would be a target for upset-minded squads. The Guards avoided some shaky player early second round Friday, pulling out a win against No. 15 Mesa Grande Academy. In the quarterfinals Tuesday, it was No. 10 Capistrano Valley Christian which took aim at Bell-Jeff. Unfortunately for the Guards, they were not able to withstand another upset bid, as they fell on the road to the Eagles, 64-62.

The Burbank High girls' basketball team began the CIF Southern Section Division I-A playoffs with a major speed bump. Playing Knight of Palmdale on the road Saturday night, the Bulldogs dug themselves a hole to the tune of a 20-point deficit. However, Burbank was able to battle back late in the fourth quarter to make it just a two-point game. But that was as close as the Bulldogs would come, as they saw their season come to an end with a 60-57 loss. "We fell behind and we were trailing by 20 in the fourth quarter," Burbank Coach Bruce Breeden said.
