McDonald makes a different throw Burbank High football player Mike McDonald is used to making memorable throws as a senior quarterback for the Bulldogs. However, in a Foothill League game against Valencia on Oct. 22 at Memorial Field, McDonald had a few throws he would probably like to forget. After taking a pounding and expelling a lot of energy in the first half, the player took some time during half time to take in some nutrition. McDonald's choice of food was a chocolate, peanut candy bar that, let's say, was not "mighty satisfying," as the bite to eat came back up three times.

BURBANK TENNIS CENTER -- Eric Mann has seen it all as an instructor and coach at the Burbank Tennis Center. From running tournaments, to instructing youth to helping with administration duties, Mann has seen the facility grow from a few courts at McCambridge Park to a state-of-the-art facility that hosts top satellite tournaments. "Eric Mann has been with us from the beginning in 1993 when the Burbank Tennis Center opened," Executive Director Steve Starleaf said.

Regarding Pamela Lillig James' Jan. 17 letter, I do respect the process of electing officials and feel they represent us. We may disagree with some of their opinions, but there is plenty of time given for public input on various issues. Burbank has a cast of characters who appear every Tuesday night at council meetings and criticize the council on every imaginable subject. I think the initiative process needs reform in California, especially at the state level.

Josh Goldstein CIVIC CENTER -- Court officials are set to adopt a plan in September that would either seat jurors on a court case or set them free after one day of waiting for selection, Burbank Superior Court Judge Carl J. West said Tuesday. Once up and running, the one-trial or one-day program, which is used in about 20 of the 58 courts in Los Angeles County, will be a more effective way for jurors to do their civic duty, said West, supervising judge of the North Central District.

Molly Shore Burbank High School's head tennis Coach Paul McNiff is pleased. After three years of coaching the teams at McCambridge Park's Tennis Center because the school's courts were demolished in Phase I construction, the tennis program will return to campus early next year. "I am happy that the courts will be back on campus," McNiff said. "For the past three years, students have been playing at McCambridge Park's Tennis Center, and while the center does a good job accommodating the school's tennis program, the students have to share the facilities with many others who use it."

BURBANK -- The ongoing construction at Burbank and Burroughs highs has had varying affects on both the school's girls' tennis teams. For the Indians, their courts have been virtually untouched by the renovation project. In fact, there have even been improvements made to the facility. "We have eight brand new courts," said Burroughs Coach Roy Bernhardt, who also heads the boys' program. "All the courts have been resurfaced and we have new nets and even a new wind screen.

Letters attacking me personally for my Jan. 3 community commentary have been too hysterical for rational response. But I will try to correct factual errors, such as Lowell Gronich's Jan. 24 "Shame on you, Mr. Bill Starr for your commentary." He stated: "'We the people,' who have assigned the job of interpreting the Constitution to the courts, are a nation of laws."' No, neither "We the people" nor our elected representatives have ever made that assignment in the Constitution or anywhere else.

Ryan Carter GLENDALE -- For the past 15 years, a diligent nucleus of weekend tennis warriors has braved the morning air on weekends at the tennis courts at Glendale Community College -- all for the love of playing a match. Somehow, for several years, they've been able to maintain a sizable core group of players to come out and play. Weekly round-robin tennis matches have led to lasting friendships within this group of 45- to 70-year-old men. It can be competitive.

It was not a laboratory experiment gone bad that brought down Burbank High School's science building this week. Demolition crews are wrecking the 60-year-old building, along with the school's old library, built in 1939, and its cafeteria, built the following year, to pave the way for Phase II of the school's renovation project. "[The science building] was only a year old when I started there," 1946 Burbank High graduate Herb Vincent said. "We had to walk across Walnut Avenue to get to it because Walnut ran through the campus."

Jeff Tully Like many other spring sports, the local high school boys' tennis teams have been affected by the recent rains. "We practiced a few days before the rains came a few weeks ago, but we haven't been able to practice much since then," Burroughs Coach Roy Bernhardt said. "One of my players was complaining because we weren't able to practice, and he was concerned. But I told him most of the other teams are in the same boat because of the rain."

A Newport Beach ordinance limiting group homes, struck down by a federal appeals court, has been cited repeatedly by Burbank officials who say they are extremely restricted in regulating such facilities. But last week, Burbank City Council members said they would consider a temporary ban on such homes, following a request from dozens of residents demanding action.  The Orange County city plans to petition the  U.S. Supreme Court  to overturn a lower court decision that determined its group home ordinance is discriminatory, the Daily Pilot reported . Newport Beach City Council members voted unanimously during a closed session meeting Tuesday to pursue the petition, City Atty.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday denied the city's request to review a lower court's decision that a former police detective was protected under the First Amendment when he reported officer misconduct. The city filed a petition with the Supreme Court in November arguing that former Det. Angelo Dahlia was not protected by the First Amendment, and therefore cannot sue the city for retaliation , because as a police officer, it was his professional duty to report crimes he witnessed.

Burbank residents Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo, along with a lesbian couple from Berkeley, challenged the ban in what amounted to a four-year legal battle, full of emotional testimonies, near-endless court hearings and trips to Washington, D.C.

The petition, authorized by the Burbank City Council last month, asks the Supreme Court to review a U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision that the former detective, Angelo Dahlia, was protected under the First Amendment when he reported the misconduct.

The Burbank City Council authorized a petition Tuesday to appeal a ruling by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals that a former Burbank police detective can sue the city for allegedly placing him on administrative leave for disclosing police misconduct. In a 3-1 vote behind closed doors, in which Councilman David Gordon was the sole dissenter, the council signed off on plans to petition to the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case. Councilman Jess Talamantes was absent. In August, an 11-judge panel ruled that Angelo Dahlia was protected by the First Amendment when he alleged misconduct by officers in the wake of a 2007 robbery at Porto's Bakery in Burbank.

The Burbank High and Burroughs girls' tennis teams experienced different results in the Pacific League last season. Behind a balanced lineup, the Bulldogs were competitive in league and finished second behind champion Arcadia. The Indians, on the other hand, struggled and finished second to last in league. Leading into the 2013 season, it looks like last year's trends are continuing with the two local teams. Although Burbank lost some key seniors to graduation, the Bulldogs have a strong group of returners that coach Loi Phan expects to contend for the league championship.

The woman who clashed with security officers at Bob Hope Airport while trying to board a plane with applesauce and other snacks in April 2009 is struggling to keep a civil rights claim against the Transportation Security Administration from being tossed out of federal court. Lacking formal legal training but acting as her own attorney, Nadine Hays hit another legal roadblock this month when a U.S. District Court magistrate rejected her attempts to file an amended complaint - her fourth in two years - alleging a conspiracy to tamper with video of the scuffle and conceal the identities of the TSA agents involved.

The recent leaks of NSA programs to the Washington Post and Guardian newspapers have awakened a strong desire among many Americans to know more about how the Intelligence Community conducts its business. Americans expect their government to do the utmost to protect our country, but that cannot mean trading our 4th Amendment right to privacy for the promise of security. Most Americans understand the need to “connect the dots” to avoid another 9/11, as long as the intelligence community has a legitimate need for the information it seeks and is no more intrusive than absolutely necessary.

SAN FRANCISCO - The California Supreme Court refused for the second time to stop gays from marrying Tuesday, rejecting a bid by a San Diego County official who contends Proposition 8 remains state law. In a closed session, the state high court turned down a request by San Diego County Clerk Ernest J. Dronenburg Jr. for a temporary hold or "stay" on same-sex marriages. The court rejected a similar request last week by the sponsors of Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure that banned gay marriage.
