I read the nice advertisement announcing the Glendale Salvation Army Advisory Board's invitation to its 2001 annual dinner April 19 at the Oakmont Country Club to honor Maj. Floyd and Lola Bacon for their 10 years of dedicated service in Glendale. I called the reservation number to make two reservations for my wife and I, as I have always admired the major and his wife Lola for the outstanding work they have accomplished. I learned to my dismay that reservations are $60 each.

Friggatriskaidekaphobia is the fear of the 13th day of a month falling on a Friday — a day when the superstitious tend to avoid black cats. Well, if black cats were being avoided, Black Cows were being embraced as members, friends and supporters of the Burbank Elks gathered at their Hollywood Way lodge for a 1950s-themed dinner dance on Friday the 13th. As bobby-soxed, poodle-skirted and bowling-shirted folks arrived at the lodge, they were greeted by Kelly Loporchio and Brittney Peale who were delving out the Black Cows — a concoction of soda, ice cream, chocolate syrup and whipped cream that became a staple of 1950s malt shops.

With his recent reelection, President Obama has won the power to pardon more turkeys on Thanksgiving. But so does every one of us, by choosing a nonviolent Thanksgiving observance that gives thanks for our good fortune, health, and happiness with a life-affirming, cruelty-free feast of vegetables, fruits, and grains. And here are more terrific reasons: • You will stay alert through the entire football game. • You are what you eat. Who wants to be a “butterball”? • Your vegetarian kid won't have to boycott the family dinner.

In middle school, Thanksgiving always brought out the same perennial writing assignment. “OK class,” said Sister Mary Bernadette Rosemary Mary. “Take out your pencils and write what you're thankful to God for on this Thanksgiving.” I was one of the best spellers in the class, but the word “Thanksgiving” always vexed me as I tried to sound out the spelling of the holiday. Two words, or one? “Thancksgiving” or “Thanxgibbing?” In fourth grade, I got it right.

BURBANK — Although the festivities at the Burbank Temporary Aid Center’s annual fundraiser Friday will be the same as usual, this year the organization needs financial help from the community more than ever. The nonprofit group hopes to raise $100,000 at the fundraising dinner, which features cocktails, a raffle, silent and live auctions, dinner, and dancing at $100 a ticket. Some Burbank residents are coming to the center for the first time in their lives to pay their power bills, and the organization is facing difficulty paying for these high demands.

DOWNTOWN — Hundreds of people braved the cold and a downpour Wednesday as they stood in line to get a hot plate of turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy at the Burbank Salvation Army’s annual Thanksgiving dinner. Burbank resident Maria Nelson, 79, rode the bus and walked in the rain from her senior home to get a portion of Thanksgiving trimmings. Her clothes were soaking, and she stuffed her shoes with paper towels. Nelson was first in line for the dinner. But while her trip to the organization’s facility at 300 E. Angeleno Ave. was challenging, she said she didn’t mind because she was with her friends from the senior home, and knew she would be eating a delicious meal.

It wasn’t a pretty sight. The assemblage that had gathered at The Castaway restaurant last weekend to support a good cause had been pleasantly mingling and were just sitting down for dinner when a heated argument broke out. Moments later, shots rang out. When the gun powder settled, Pastor Paul Clairville of Burbank’s Westminster Presbyterian Church was lying on the floor. From that moment on, every person in the room became both a sleuth and a suspect as the newly formed Family Promise of the East San Fernando Valley presented a murder- mystery dinner that served as the organization’s first major fundraiser.
