Gary Moskowitz RANCHO DISTRICT -- Roz Cannon became a flag historian -- unintentionally -- about 40 years ago, when her husband, Bill, took over a failing business and told her he needed a partner. Cannon, the smarts behind the stitches at the James E. Perry Co. Flag Headquarters in Burbank since 1960, said Flag Day this year was just like Flag Day every year. Dull. "Nothing really happened for us for Flag Day," said Cannon, who among other things does all the research necessary to reproduce historically accurate flags for films and television programs.

BURBANK — At 4 p.m. on Thursday, more than 50 men, women and children stood in the Burbank Tennis Center with their hands over their hearts. As they recited the Pledge of Allegiance, they joined Americans all across the county who were observing Flag Day with the "Pause for Pledge of Allegiance" — when people in all of the nation's time zones salute the flag at the exact same time. As a part of the ceremony, Boy Scouts in uniform marched five flags out to the center of the assembly as a pre-recorded narrative traced the flag's evolution from its original design — the red cross of St. George and the white cross of St. Andrew juxtaposed over a red background — to the present-day banner of 13 stripes and 50 stars.

At a meeting of the La Cadena's Women's Group on Tuesday, Cadmus handed out fliers with suggested protocol on how to display the United States flag. The flag represents a living country and is considered a living thing, emblematic of the respect and pride that we have for our nation, the flier read.

By a Joint Resolution on June 9, 1966, the Congress requested the president to issue annually a proclamation designating the week in which June 14 occurs as National Flag Week and calling upon citizens to display the flag during that week. On June 20, 1985, the 99th Congress passed and President Ronald Reagan signed Public Law 99-54 recognizing the Pause For the Pledge of Allegiance as part of National Flag Day activities. For the 11th successive year, individuals of all ages, race, religion, national origin, political and economic status alike gathered together on June 14 — Flag Day — at the Burbank Tennis Center at McCambridge Park to join the rest of our country in a national recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.

MEDIA DISTRICT NORTH ? About 100 of Burbank's patriots stood with their hands over their hearts in sun-drenched McCambridge Park on Wednesday during the Pause for Allegiance, an annual Flag Day event. Burbank Kiwanis member Sam Engle conceived the ceremony 10 years ago as a way to honor the dignity of the American flag while providing the background of how the flag developed throughout the history of the United States. "I think of it as a ceremony that is a pet project of Sam Engle, who saw years ago that Flag Day is worth celebrating and he's been a real one-man show since then," said City Manager Mary Alvord, who attended the ceremony.

Black Monday for Burbank Mayor Jef Vander Borght may feel really proud of himself ("Hoping for Jet Blue Monday," June 15) by naming May 24 as Jet Blue day and celebrating this airline's direct flights to the East Coast. I have a feeling, however, that most longtime Burbank residents will note it as a very black day. The day when Burbank (Bob Hope Airport) lost its status as a regional airport. Oh yes, for those who live near Los Angeles International Airport and elsewhere, Burbank may be a convenience, but to those who live here and care about the quality of life here, it is one more step down the slippery slope to the 24-hour international operation so desired by a few. ROSE M. PROUSER Burbank Some observations around town On Memorial Day, I only saw a smattering of American Flags being displayed honoring our veterans around Burbank.
