The Burbank High School graduate recently found a plastic bag containing $40,000 on a Los Angeles street. Yes, you read that number correctly. The 21-year-old passed a small fortune back to its rightful owner because, he said, it was his instinct to do the right thing. Here’s the story: Jones and his girlfriend were returning from a movie late on the night of Jan. 3 when they came across Jones’ neighbor, Al Greenblat, rummaging through trash by a discarded mattress outside their apartment building.

The 21-year-old Burbank High School graduate returned home from watching a movie with his girlfriend about 10:30 p.m. Jan. 3 when he saw his neighbor, Al Greenblat, outside their Los Angeles apartment building rummaging through trash next to a discarded mattress. He noticed Greenblat was not acting like his usual self and the right side of his face was bruised.

Lolita Harper RANCHO DISTRICT -- The secret to a long life can be measured in ounces, said Manuel Cardona, who celebrated his 100th birthday Sunday. That's an ounce of love, an ounce of patience and about three ounces of Aquardiente -- the official liquor of Colombia -- each day. Translated, it means fire water, and Cardona swears by it. It has been a long-standing tradition in his family to take a shot of Aquardiente every morning before starting work, Cardona said.

A group of senior citizens is imploring city officials to reinstate a nutritional meals program at a popular park facility, citing everything from inconvenient commutes to the familial atmosphere forged over years of lunch meetings. Senior nutrition lunches at McCambridge Recreation Center were moved to the Joslyn Adult Center and Don Tuttle Senior Center as the park facility underwent seismic retrofitting in October. While the facility at McCambridge Park is slated to reopen next month, Chris Dasté, director of the city’s Park, Recreation and Community Services Department, submitted a draft proposal to make the two-center system permanent as part of his 5% budget cut for fiscal year 2010-11.

Burbank resident Maira Gonzalez said she told her boss in advance that she would not be going to work on Monday, in order to support the cause.
