Karen S. Kim BURBANK -- She's never appeared at a candidates' forum. She's never responded to requests for an interview. She hasn't turned in the appropriate candidacy documents to the city clerk's office. And now she could be in trouble with the law. Where in the world is city treasurer candidate Charity Dawn Wynn? City Clerk Judie Sarquiz said that Wynn owes the city $100 -- the maximum late fee charge -- because she still hasn't submitted her campaign expense reports.

Karen S. Kim BURBANK -- Employees of local Burger Kings served more than burgers and fries this year during the holiday season. They served a healthy helping of charity. Instead of a holiday gift exchange between employees, the 225 workers at seven area Burger Kings used the money to buy toys for needy children. The altruistic idea came from Chris Schmutzer, the director of operations for RP Restaurants Inc., which owns and operates three Burger Kings in Glendale, one in La Crescenta, one in Burbank, one in Sunland and one in Eagle Rock.
