BURBANK ? The good news for the local softball programs is that all four squads qualified for the CIF Southern Section postseason. However, the bad news is that with the exception of Burbank High, the three other teams ? Burroughs, Providence and Bellarmine-Jefferson ? will likely have tough roads if they hope to make significant playoff runs. The Bulldogs and first-year Nicole Drabecki were rewarded for a fine regular season by getting the No. 2 seed in Division II. Burbank will have the advantage of opening the playoffs at 3:15 p.m. Friday in a home game at McCambridge Park.

BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON HIGH — Playing in a Santa Cruz League that provides the Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls’ volleyball team with minimal competition, Guards’ Coach Miguel Segura decided to beef up his team’s nonleague schedule this season. This year, Bell-Jeff took on its share of larger schools and programs that would provide qualify opposition, teams like Culver City, Arcadia, Hart and Chatsworth. Segura was hoping the experience would pay dividends come playoff time.

Mark Scott's first goal as Burbank's incoming city manager is simple: to listen. “I really need to spend the first two months getting to know people, and to listen to them,” Scott said in an interview Tuesday. “For a city manager coming into new community, the very first thing you want to do is to get to know your staff and your public.” He'll have a first chance to do so on Thursday afternoon at City Hall, where Burbank will be hosting a meet-and-greet with the city's new top official.

GLENDALE — An additional tax that could steer Glendale and Burbank school districts away from a looming funding cliff has piqued the interest of administrators, especially with the latest warning coming down from Sacramento. A parcel tax, which recently won in Culver City and failed in Long Beach, could preserve teaching jobs, class sizes, and arts and athletic programs that might otherwise face additional cuts as state financing fails to meet budget projections. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger predicted Tuesday that there would be additional cuts in education and other funding as the state continues to grapple with a budget cap between $5 billion and $7 billion.

CULVER CITY — A 20-13 season-opening loss to West Los Angeles College was a bitter pill to swallow for a Glendale Community College football team that had hoped to hit the ground running smoothly. If anything could make the Vaqueros’ debacle of a first half — the main culprit in the loss — a bit easier to digest, a second half in which Glendale college held the host Oilers scoreless, put together its first touchdown drive of the year and ultimately gave itself a strong chance Saturday to salvage a win would likely fit the bill.

Burbank on Parade was the best place to be Saturday for those who love to people-watch. Where else could one see Rep. Adam Schiff and Ronald McDonald at the same event? City officials like Mayor Dave Golonski and school district VIPs, led by Superintendent Jan Britz, waved to the more than 10,000 estimated people lining Olive Avenue from Keystone to Lomita streets. Many of the more than 100 entries kept to the parade committee's theme, "Let's Go to the Movies!" The grand marshal was radio talk-show host Tim Conway Jr. PHOTOS: Burbank on Parade celebrates 32nd anniversary Rita Smith has lived in Burbank for 30 years and has seen about a dozen of the Burbank parades.
