Uniquely funny, touching and honest for what it is ? a romantic comedy ? ?Ghost Town? should earn a spot on the list of Top 20 Great Ghost Movies. Most of the credit for the way ?Ghost Town? happily wraps its way into the warm blanket of your subconscious belongs to Ricky Gervais. As good as his work was last year as the museum director in ?Night at the Museum,? and as remarkable as his career has been so far as the co-creator and star of the original British version of TV?s ?The Office,?

Hey fellow citizens, we have found a new project to beat like a dead dog. Now more clowns can stand at the podium at council meetings and rant and rave about their new pet complaint: chromium 6. The only good thing about it is that it will stop the stupid conversation at council meetings and in the paper for a short time about the airport expansion, which I for one am in favor of very much. However if the people who say they seem to be the ones in the know, and our brilliant city leaders have their say, it shouldn't take more than 15 or 20 more years until all decent size business -- like NBC, Disney, Warner to name a few -- finally move out of Burbank and leave this a ghost town and we can have dirt streets again and tie our horses at the rails on main street and not get a parking ticket.

Post office is needed on west end Regarding “Post office is being shipped,” Feb. 14: I have lived in Burbank at the west end just off Magnolia Avenue since 1973. Telling me that the Magnolia Park Post Office is going to close and directing me to the Hollywood Way Post Office equates to telling me Burbank Airport is closing and directing me to LAX. The distance is extreme; however, the smaller post office I prefer over the larger one. Also, I agree with the businesspeople.

It’s not exactly a sound stage, but the talking stage is better than no stage at all these days in Burbank. So at least some scattered applause is in order for writers and producers, who were back at the bargaining table this week — a feat, given the issues over Internet residuals that have separated them for five weeks. Now, at least there are glimmers of hope that progress is being made toward ending a strike that has stopped production in its tracks at a sensitive time of the year — winter and the holidays — and that has a reach far beyond the picketers we see on the news.

Paul Clinton CIVIC CENTER -- A month after the collapse of a Beverly Hills developer's bid to pour $100 million into a Burbank Village retail and hotel development, city officials are scrambling to put together another project. The City Council voted 4-1 May 23 to seek proposals from three developers that were interested before the city selected Regent Properties Inc. in 1998. The City Council, acting as the Redevelopment Agency, will consider proposals from Civic Partners, Cusumano Real Estate Group and Legacy Partners by early August.

Bill Scollon Looking for a place where not everyone knows your name, but it seems like they should? Then head down to the tried-and-true Dalts Classic American Grill. Sustained by a business-lunch crowd, Dalts has been dishing out essentially the same fare for many years, both a weakness and strength. But a recently unveiled, expanded menu features new additions across the board. Dinnertime at Dalts can sometimes feel like a ghost town, but the wait staff is nearly always pleasant and perky and the food reliable.

Is all really well in local schools? One of the most important things we do in America is provide for the education of our posterity. Reading the state and national press, we don't seem to be doing a very good job. Yet, reading the local press around the country, every community seems to be an island of excellence in the sea of doubt, lies, deceit and under-funding. Maybe it's time to talk about the local issues that we citizens see. 1. In the school district, what can we expect in the way of a plan for assessing students' year-over-year progress toward graduation and full participation in society, whether it be through entering college or business?
