“Daddy, today I am going to try buttons,” my 6-year-old announced to me some months ago. She then proceeded to take the rest of the day to do just that and discover that she can indeed button her own pants, shirts and sweaters. Having children is both the greatest gift and greatest punishment we receive in life. It is the greatest gift because of all the discoveries that are made by and about our children and ourselves. Sadly, it is the greatest punishment for the very same reason.

CRAIG BULLOCK This year marks the 75th anniversary of an airport in Burbank. During its storied history, the airport has seen many changes in names, owners, aircraft and people, which have contributed to its evolution into what it is today. In the late 1920s Austin Co., Engineers and Builders, along with officials from Boeing Air Transport Corp., carefully planned the site where the airport was constructed. Before the airport was constructed, the vacant 243-acre land had to be cleared of more than 100 huge oak and eucalyptus trees.

Maya Kukes HILLSIDE DISTRICT -- A celebration of spring came in the form of a lesson on bees at the Burbank Central Library on Thursday as part of the Story Craft program. Children's librarian Hubert Kozak read the children a variety of bee-related stories, including Aesop's fable of the bear and the bee and Winnie the Pooh author A.A. Milne's stories about honey. "We thought a lesson on bees was just very appropriate for spring," Kozak said.

Jackie Conley Warner Bros. said goodbye to the Old West when it opened a new neighborhood on its studio lot. Dubbed Warner Village, the new street exterior set provides film and television productions with 11 New England-style houses, and offices for its employees inside. "The gravy is shooting on it," said Jeff Nagler, executive vice president the studio facility group. "But having these offices makes it more."

Will Rogers We have been infested and, as you might expect, it's the city's fault. One morning last week, I came across city crews using a truck with a cherry picker to lift a man into one tree top after another. The worker was hanging small cardboard squares, about 2-inches square, on a few branches, then moving on to the next city tree to repeat the process. By that afternoon our parkway was littered with the squares blowing off the branches, and I got my first up-close look.

The contemporary urban designer Paul Murrain said, “We cannot continue to believe that the landscape is sacred and the city profane. They must both be considered sacred.” The new exhibit at the Brand Library, “Metropolis: Prospects & Observations” illustrates this sentiment by showcasing five artists whose vision of urban life finds beauty and context in oft-overlooked perspectives of our concrete jungles. Photography, oil on canvas, ink and crocheted stainless steel illustrate these local artists’ interpretation of our urban landscapes, with man-made influence decidedly controlling the environment, rather than the other way around.

With airport tours, vintage aircraft and refreshments, airport operators plan on talking about anything but the tortuous push for a new terminal building.
