Irma Lemus MAGNOLIA PARK -- Ten Burbank boys received The Arrow of Light Award, the highest honor a Cub Scout can earn, during a ceremony at Magnolia Park United Methodist Church. The boys, who were honored Thursday, had to earn at least eight activity badges to be eligible for the award, said Steve Eisinger, Cubmaster for Cub Scout Pack 201. Eisinger said many of the boys worked for nearly five years to be eligible for the award. The accomplishment also marked the boys' transition into the Boy Scouts, he said.

Tim Willert MEDIA DISTRICT WEST -- Cody Gutches wasn't behind the wheel of his Dragonfire II race car, but he visited the winner's circle anyway. Cody, 9, finished first out of the 35 Cub Scouts who entered in Sunday's Pinewood Derby Race at St. Finbar's Catholic Church, which sponsors Pack No. 219. Whether it's NASCAR or Pinewood Derby, the will to win is there for several of the participants, including Cody. "I feel good ... because I had revenge on my friend," he said, beaming.

Joyce Rudolph It's been a long and often dusty road for four young men, but their journey together as Boy Scouts is almost completed. Jonathan Downam of Arleta, Terry Thompson of Tujunga, David Cohen of Sunland and Matthew Brooks of Burbank will receive the rank of Eagle Scout during their Court of Honor ceremony Feb. 16 at the First United Methodist Church in Burbank.

Darleene Barrientos Among all the excitement, anticipation, food, friends and fun, the centers of attention -- 7-inch, colorful Pinewood Derby cars -- sat neatly on a table, waiting for their moments in the spotlight. Dozens of parents, grandparents and siblings of Cub Scouts Pack 219 gathered at St. Finbar Parish School's hall Sunday morning to watch the handmade cars race down a 32-foot blue and yellow track in the middle of the hall. The atmosphere was much like any other racetrack scene, with sponsor cars being prepped in one corner, drivers waiting in line to register and spectators waiting impatiently for the races to begin.

Darleene Barrientos They can each fit in the palm of your hand, but to Cub Scout Pack 219, they were the whole world for a day. About 50 parents, grandparents and siblings gathered at St. Finbar Parish School to watch the pack's annual Pinewood Derby, with the children and parents racing their 7-inch pinewood derby cars. A hush fell over the room Sunday as the final four cars sat positioned to race down the 32-foot blue and yellow track. The audience held its breath as the cars flew toward the finish line, where an infrared beam shone up from a tiny hole inside each track to take the car's time.

While reading the "In Theory" section in the Feb. 2 Burbank Leader, I recognized the thrust of the subject was focused on cheating. Some of the pastors responded with comments about the “pressure of expectation” and how that plays into one's reason for cheating. Michael White, of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, La Crescenta relating to the “tragedy in the fact that fractured moral foundations typically lead to fractured lives” correctly stated, “We must realize - and find a way to teach our children - that if we choose to deceive and cut corners, we are in reality cheating ourselves.”  I read through all of the responses submitted by the various representatives of local church/organizations and found something subtly ironic, if not, curiously interesting.

NBC leaving gives a chance to add a theater I have always felt that Burbank deserves a super magnificent live theater that would surpass all others. The NBC vacancy is an ideal location (“NBC vacancy stirs guesses,” Nov. 17). Picture: Gala premieres with search lights scanning the skies. The glamour of the motion picture industry belongs in Burbank. A giant theater here would sit well with the proposed Bob Hope museum. Also: How about a monorail from Burbank to Universal Studios.
