Will Rogers says he encourages people to ask him to prove the things he says in his column? Fine. I am formally and officially demanding he prove what he wrote about home prices near the airport rising by a bigger percentage than prices any where else in Burbank. I guess he wants us to believe that so many people in Burbank loved the City Council's Framework for Disaster so much that houses by the airport were all of a sudden worth more than the hillside houses.

EDITOR'S NOTE : This is the first of a four-part series looking back on the sports accomplishments of the four local high schools over the past school year. The first to be saluted is Bellarmine-Jefferson High. Unassuming at 5 feet 6, the junior possesses a great deal of talent and is just as accomplished on the cross-country course as she is on the basketball court or the softball diamond. During the 2006-07 school year, Hajj had the magic touch when it came to her influence on helping teams enjoy successful campaigns.

EDITOR'S NOTE : This is the fourth and final installment in a series looking back on the sports accomplishments of the four local high schools during the 2006-07 school year. This installment is Providence: There was little Heather Hansen could do wrong during the 2006-07 school year. There are those who say Hansen's best sport is girls' soccer, something she plays at the club level but did not compete in during her tenure at Providence. However, the outstanding athlete did compete in girls' basketball and volleyball during her senior season.

EDITOR'S NOTE : This is the third in a four-part series looking back on the sports accomplishments of the four local high schools over the past school year. This installment is Burroughs High: It was apparent just months into the 2006-07 school year that Burroughs High was going to make an impact in the Pacific League. After decades playing in the tough Foothill League, the Indians teams got off to a fine start against their new opponents.

On behalf of the Burbank Transportation Management Organization, I am writing not only to provide information about our organization, but also to congratulate the Burbank businesses that have worked for so many years to encourage their employees to do the right thing by not driving alone to work and for providing leadership and resources to significantly reduce Burbank's traffic and improve our air quality. The Burbank Transportation Management Organization is a private, nonprofit Burbank-based organization with 110 member companies.

Buying coal power is not a proud moment I guess I am really confused about how the city of Burbank gets its power ("Contract with coal plant is renewed," Saturday). I thought with the building of our giant power plant, which I see every time when visiting uptown, is where we received our power from. Also, my understanding is that we sell power from this ultra-clean-burning power plant to other cities. If we sell extra power, why do we have to buy it from somewhere else? In today's climate, with all of the talk of clean-burning cars, recycling, global warming etc., how could anyone even think of doing business with a company that pollutes the environment?

Recently, I read that the Senior Artists Colony apartments are being built next door to Miller Elementary School. While it might be good for some children and seniors, it isn't going to be good for all tenants over the age of 55. The reason that those who are 55 or older move to a "senior" building is to get away from screaming children. What do you think you are going to get right next door to a school with the playground on the land right next door the Senior Artists Colony?

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following editorial was first published on Nov. 13, 2002. Although some of the topics have changed, the message is as applicable now as it was then. It's not often in the newspaper business that we ask something of our readers. Through editorials we might urge a commission or council to vote a certain way, or blast them for not doing so. But rarely do we ask our readers to do something for us, and this time, what we're asking is fairly simple.

: This is the second in a four-part series looking back on the sports accomplishments of the four local high schools over the past school year. This installment is Burbank High. EDITOR'S NOTE The Burbank High sports teams ventured through the first two-thirds of the 2006-07 school year without claiming a league championship. Despite moving from the treacherous Foothill League to the more manageable Pacific League, no Bulldogs squads were able to win a crown through the spring and winter seasons — although a few did come close.

During the 2006-07 school year, Hajj had the magic touch when it came to her influence on helping teams enjoy successful campaigns. In the fall, she helped the Bell-Jeff girls' cross-country to a league title and a trip to the CIF Southern Section Finals. In the winter, she was a member of a Guards basketball team that tallied 16 more wins than last year and advanced to the CIF Southern Section quarterfinals.

Time to cover the littler leagues I read the article about the Burbank High School boy's tennis team winning the first championship for the school in the Pacific League and was very happy to hear of their achievement ("Title is a first for Burbank," Wednesday). But then I thought, wait a minute, does it mean the first for the tennis team or the first for the school? I'd like to say, although not a varsity team, the Bulldog freshman football team won the Pacific League title as well.

The Leader's Aug. 30 coverage of the Alisa Belcourt funeral stands as a perfect example of the press's tendency toward poor judgment in determining what constitutes news. Regrettably, society has become accustomed to the funerals of celebrities being covered like movie premieres or sporting events. But when did the last rites for a 15-year-old private citizen become appropriate material for front-page, color coverage accompanied by a story that breathlessly informed the public at exactly what point the young lady's father broke [down]
