Since this has been a big issue for Walmart to open a location in Burbank, why don't they move the location to the old Kmart property on San Fernando Road in Glendale? The lot has a big open space and it has not been used for years. It also has plenty room for parking. I also think it will help the neighborhood because they don't have a Target near them and it will help with employment. Cathy Safavi-Ruelas Burbank

Am I the only person who remembers reading and being shocked by the L.A. Times Pulitzer prize-winning three-part expose of Walmart, published in 2003, titled “The Wal-Mart Effect”? I suggest anyone on the fence in the “let-'em-in or keep 'em out” debate go back and read what was written. Since reading about their business practices in those articles, I have never again set foot in a Walmart store and never will. I will go without that new T-shirt before I'll cause some mother in Honduras to work 18 hours a day to meet her quota while her children take care of themselves.

BURBANK - Both Glendale High boys' tennis Coach Bob Davidson and Burbank Coach Loi Phan were banking on a tight match when the squads met Thursday in a Pacific League contest. However, neither could have predicted just how close the match would be. PHOTOS: Burbank vs. Glendale boys' tennis The Nitros and Bulldogs were tied after the first of three rounds of play. The score remained knotted after the second round, and when all 18 sets were finished in regulation, the score stood at 9-9. That forced the contest to be decided by games, but when they were ultimately added up, Burbank and Glendale were still deadlocked, 81-81.

BURBANK — The Burroughs High boys' soccer team was searching for a performance that would help it turn around what was turning into a disappointing season. The Indians might have found just such a situation in a Pacific League contest Tuesday against Glendale. Burroughs played inspired soccer from the get-go, moving and passing the ball well, putting constant offensive pressure on the Nitros and dictating the tempo for most of the game. Those factors helped the Indians earn a 3-0 victory at Luther Burbank Middle School.

GLENDALE - A big first inning lifted the Burbank 10-11 All Stars to the District 16 championship over the Jewel City/Jewish War Veterans-Foothill 10-11 All Stars, completing a two-game sweep in the two-team tournament. Burbank scored eight in the first en route to a 13-2 title-clinching victory on Sunday evening at the Scholl Canyon Ball Fields. The win came one day after Burbank defeated the Glendale squad in the first of the best-of-three series, 17-1, on Saturday. Burbank needed just five hits to score the 13 runs, as it capitalized on seven walks and five errors from the JC/JWV-Foothill defense.

BURBANK - An opportunity to move into a tie for fourth place awaited the Burroughs and Glendale high baseball teams before Tuesday's Pacific League game.

GLENDALE - Doug Nicol has seen his share of hard-hit balls around the diamond. On Tuesday, the Burroughs High softball coach saw another one that he likely won't soon forget that helped pave the way for a big first inning for the Indians. Danielle Ryan hit a two-run inside-the-park home run high off the 40-foot chain-linked fence at Glendale High to spark visiting Burroughs to a convincing 16-3 victory against Glendale in a Pacific League game called after five innings because of the 10-run mercy rule.

GLENDALE - Burbank High softball Coach Mike Delaney and Glendale Coach Greg Martin walked into distinctly different situations when they took over their respective programs this season. For Delaney, a longtime coach at Village Christian, he took over a squad fresh off winning a Pacific League championship and chalk full of experienced players, including a standout junior pitcher in All-CIF Southern Section and All-Area Player of the Year Caitlyn Brooks. Conversely, Martin inherited a team that didn't make the playoffs in 2013 after placing fifth and half the players on the roster were underclassmen.

BURBANK - Perhaps the smallest and yet most complex difference that separated the Burroughs High and Glendale softball teams in Tuesday afternoon's Pacific League opener was defense. Even simpler put, the young Nitros committed five errors, while the more veteran Indians minimized their one mistake in an 11-1 win called after five innings at Jack Smock Field at Olive Park in Burbank.
