It is interesting that we speak of "dynasty" in sports, especially as regards youth sports. Yet, part of the term "dynasty" implies a sense of family, a passing of the torch from one generation to the next. The players themselves should make an effort to pass their talent on to younger players, not just relying on the coaches and/or adults involved to do so. Organized sports should not be just about learning the mechanics of the sport for the individual player.

Maybe it was the images of devastated Haitians this past week that filled our TV sets, or the sense of impending disaster that permeated the county with one rough storm after another, but the way our local schools mobilized to join the Haiti relief effort was a welcome reminder that we are grooming capable leaders for the next generation. Yes, businesses have set up donation drives, and nonprofits have banded together. And we?ve sent medical professionals and emergency crews. But those are, by definition, professionals, trained and bred to answer the call of duty wherever it may be. But when it would be just as easy to tune it all out and focus on Facebook and how to keep hairdos maintained in the pouring rain, it was our local students who?

Edward Headington Last winter, a copy of the leadership plan I developed for my Leadership & Politics course at The George Washington University's Graduate School of Political Management was sent to one of my mentors, author and USC Professor Dr. Warren Bennis. While I like to think of myself as a young Alexander and he my instructive Aristotle, I was flattered when, after readying the plan, he asked me to speak at his o7 Festschriftf7 in the spring.

A sense of entitlement — it seems to grow more rampant with each generation. When I think about my maternal grandfather and how he raised my mother and uncle, I witnessed respect. They obeyed him and were grateful for everything — and anything — they received. I asked my mom once why she never gave her parents trouble. She said she just knew they were the boss and never had reason to disobey. Today, I see a generation that sometimes expects more, complains more, talks back to their parents more and has a tendency to be egocentric.

The class of 2006 is a new generation with a whole new genre of knowledge. Sure they come away from their 13 years of schooling with an education in math, literature, science and history. But they also have a technical vocabulary and computer literacy that didn't even exist when their parents graduated. They have come through the same teenage struggles as every class before them ? perhaps enough tougher ones than generations before them. And while technological advances have helped make many things easier for them, it was also a whole vast knowledge they had to soak up to survive ?

The percentage of new clergy younger than 35, across mainline denominations, including Protestant and Roman Catholic, is reportedly dropping, according to a recent study by the Lewis Center for Leadership at Wesley Theological Seminary. Are you seeing a drop in your faith? If so, what do you think is driving it? Are you concerned? The dilemma of an aging clergy is symptomatic of a general aging of church and synagogue members. Seats vacated by the older generation are now left empty instead of being filled by youth.

Nickelodeon's new cartoon was hatched not through traditional television channels but in a Studio City efficiency apartment nicknamed the "Doodle Chamber. " The 41/2 -minute cartoon about two feisty, accident-prone ducks was intended to be a one-off, a little film crafted to entertain fellow animators at a short-film festival held at a New York bar. But in the hurly-burly world of children's television, network executives are desperate to find that next big hit. When animator Gary Di Raffaele, who goes by the name Gary Doodles, got an inquiry from a Nickelodeon executive about his duck cartoon, which he had posted on YouTube: "I thought it was spam," Di Raffaele said.

Advertisements will soon be plastered onto Burbank's 28 buses as the city looks for untapped sources of revenue to recover costs for its cash-strapped transit programs. The City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved a yearlong agreement - which can be terminated at any time - with mobile-advertising firm Titan Outdoors to sell, place and maintain advertisements inside and wrapped around the city's buses. The program is expected to generate between $24,000 and $144,000 a year, or half of the profits the firm rakes in from the advertisements, city officials said.

With the last bag of laundry successfully removed from my parents' car, we took one more trip up the steps to my new dorm. My father, mother and I silently looked around the room. It was getting late in the afternoon. I suggested they could stay a little longer and help me unpack. Graciously, they said, "no," and years later they told me Mom had been about to lose it. So they drove the hour back to Buffalo and left me in this strange city with this strange life, hoping they taught me everything I needed to know.

In an attempt to generate extra revenue for Burbank's cash-strapped transit programs, the City Council has signed off on a plan to plaster buses with advertisements. The City Council last week directed officials to draft a two-year contract with mobile advertising services firm Titan Outdoors, just weeks after voting to pursue a ban on mobile advertising vehicles, which in recent months came in the form of brightly colored roving vans that were advertising topless maid and massage services.

It's 8 a.m. Sunday and John Palyok, general manager of a Best Buy store in Burbank, is brandishing a $19.99 Dynex HDMI cable like a battle standard. A group of 50 employees, mostly in their 20s, gather around him, gulping coffee and nodding slowly. "It's about speed, velocity and execution," bellowed Palyok, his voice echoing through the store's cavernous, 45,000-square-foot interior. "They, need, need this HDMI cable," Palyok said, slicing the thin blue box through the air like a battle-ax.

About 30 people attended a California Department of Transportation meeting Wednesday night looking for answers about a scheduled freeway expansion on the Golden State (5) Freeway. They got their answers, but some weren't necessarily what they wanted to hear. Caltrans representatives said the project to add carpool lanes to Interstate 5 through Burbank and portions of Glendale had been scheduled to begin last year, but was delayed. At the community meeting at Glendale's Environmental Management Center on Flower Street Wednesday night, they said construction should begin this month.

Parking rates will rise by $1 at Bob Hope Airport next year as officials beef up for what is expected to be a long and costly legal battle with Lockheed Martin over who should pay for cleaning polluted groundwater beneath the airfield. In pitching the fee increase to the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority on Monday, executive director Dan Feger criticized Lockheed Martin Corp. and the Environmental Protection Agency for trying peg some of the clean up to the airport, arguing the underground contamination was left behind by decades of military aircraft manufacturing.

The Peking Acrobats will flavor Friday’s show with some new feats, but some of the old favorites will be back onstage at the Alex Theatre. They bring with them the Chinese tradition of juggling, tumbling and gymnastics that has been around for centuries, said Cynthia Dike-Hughes, who with husband Don Hughes, has co-produced the show for 20 years. Directing the talent is artistic director Ken Hai, a third-generation member of a famous acrobatic family from China, Dike-Hughes said.
