Leslie Simmons BURBANK -- Burbank kids may be getting a different type of citation from police in the next few months. Fortunately, this one won't cost their parents any money. Since Nov. 15, motor officers from the department have been rewarding good behavior such as wearing helmets and other protective gear while bike riding or skateboarding to helping others by giving away Slurpee coupons redeemable at any 7-Eleven. Dubbed "Operation Chill," the national program partners 7-Eleven with law enforcement to show appreciation for kids who do the right thing.

Once upon a time, I was a coupon junkie. My idea of a great Sunday morning was waking up early and tearing into my newspaper for store coupons that, when combined with club card discounts and doubled manufacturer coupons, let me score truly amazing deals on grocery items ? some of which I actually wanted. Then came the grocery strike. No way was I going to cross lines of picketing workers ? not even to nab a 50-cent tube of Colgate Tartar-Control. The strike eventually ended.

Ryan Carter With hopes of increasing awareness of a new statewide helmet law for skateboarders, skaters and scooter enthusiasts, police are rewarding young helmet-wearers with free scoops of ice cream. For the next few weeks, traffic officers are handing out Baskin-Robbins ice cream coupons for those who comply with the law. But after that, watch out. "We plan aggressive enforcement of the new [helmet] law," Sgt. Ron Caruso said. The new law, which went into effect at the beginning of this year, requires anyone younger than 18 to wear a helmet while riding a nonmotorized scooter, skateboard and in-line or roller skates.
