Jackson Bell The first thing a parent will usually tell their child before entering a store is to not touch anything so nothing gets accidentally broken. But at Q is for Quilts, the Burbank-based hobby supply store, being touchy-feely is actually encouraged as part of the shopping experience. "It's fun for kids when they walk in because they run their hands against the quilts," owner Julie Zastrow said. "And the moms' hands aren't usually far behind."

When the clutter prevented her from opening the door to her son's bedroom, Laura Wasilowski decided to do something about it. So, she created a quilt. Titled "Gus Cleans His Room," the whimsical wall quilt features a giant vacuum outside the bedroom window sucking everything out of the room. Wasilowski says her work is unique because there is a story behind the illustrations she incorporates into each of her quilts and the stories are usually funny.

I don't think we can have such a huge store as Walmart in Burbank without losing what makes Burbank a great and special place. It sounds like there are serious traffic considerations that have not yet been addressed, and will certainly need to be addressed, if a store the size of Walmart would move into the Empire Center. I don't think any extra tax revenue would be worth it. The extra traffic, pollution, noise, and impact on the city's small town feel would be significant. This store will have a huge impact and we should know what those impacts are. I have shopped at the Empire Center and as it is without the Walmart store.

JOYCE RUDOLPH Many of us who grew up in Burbank remember spending the summers swimming at the Pickwick pool. In an effort to preserve memories for their family's posterity, current owners Carole and Ed Stavert are on a quest to find photographs and information on Pickwick's past, prior to when their family purchased the facility in 1953. The family changed the name to Pickwick Gardens three or four years ago from Pickwick Recreation Center. When the Stavert family purchased it, it was called the Pickwick Swim Park.

Should "under God" be removed from the Constitution? No, no, no, never. When watching TV, I saw the ruling on the Pledge of Allegiance being unconstitutional if we use the words "under God." I was more than shocked. I am sure there are millions like myself who are dumbfounded. My personal opinion on this is, why do we have on all currency and coins the words, "In God we trust?" Do we only place our trust in God for our money? What about our lives, the safety of America and the world?

Several Burbank residents are performing with a theater company called the Unknown Artists in the sci-fi spoof “Gearhead and the Realbot” from Feb. 21 to March 8 in the Dorie Theatre at The Complex in Los Angeles. Tiffany Brain, a member of the Volunteers of the Burbank Animal Shelter and Burbank On Parade Committee, plays communications officer Cpl. Holly Henderson in the production. “This comedy takes the ragtag crew of the Pomegranate Fizz through a conflict that tears at the very fabric of space, or at least the space of their ship,” Brain said.

Quilt-making is a tradition in Heidi St. Royal's family. Her mom got her started in 1984, the year the Olympic Games came to Los Angeles. "My first quilt depicted the 1984 Olympics," she said. "It was red, white and blue and had the five Olympics rings in it. Each had the events that we were so lucky in the drawing to attend — equestrian, diving, track and women's and men's decathlon." Now, the Burbank resident's new passion is doing pictorial quilts, she said, where the quilter has a photograph printed on transfer paper and it can be transferred onto fabric.
