GLENDALE — Burbank police officials on Thursday backed a proposed bill that would add another point to the driving records of motorists who are leaning a little too heavily on the gas pedal. Motorists caught driving 26 mph or more above a posted speed limit would get two points on their records if Assembly Bill 2669 passes through the Senate, Assemblyman Paul Krekorian said at a news conference at the Glendale Police Station. Under current California law, motorists caught speeding are penalized a point on their driving records.

BURBANK - Thanks in part to stellar pitching and a relentless offense, the Burbank High softball team finds itself atop the CIF Southern Section Division III poll. The Bulldogs spent most of the first month of the season trying to attain the top spot. With that accomplished, the Bulldogs will look to remain there while also trying to capture the program's first Pacific League championship. “We have to stay fresh and focused to stay on top,” said Burbank Coach Nicole Drabecki, whose team registered a 17-1 league home win against Glendale on Thursday at McCambridge Park.

BURBANK - One needed to look no further than the first series from scrimmage for the Burbank High and Glendale football teams to predict how Thursday's Pacific League game was going to go. On the Nitros' first set of downs, they were forced to punt and their offense netted minus three yards. PHOTOS: Burbank vs. Glendale football In contrast, the Bulldogs scored on the first play from scrimmage when quarterback Ryan Meredith completed a shovel pass to James Williams that went for a 50-yard touchdown.

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. While the visiting Nitros struck first, they did not take advantage of several opportunities, which allowed the Indians to rally for four runs over the last two innings in a come-from-behind 4-1 victory at Tomahawk Field. With the win, Burroughs improved to 9-9 overall and 3-4 in league heading into Friday's cross-town showdown with Burbank (5-11, 2-5)

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE - It was a game riddled with fouls, poor shooting from the field and challenging shooting from the free-throw line. When Glendale High and Burbank squared off in a Pacific League girls' basketball game Monday afternoon, it became a matter of which team would be able to survive its own mistakes to come away with a victory. Although the Bulldogs built up a 10-point lead late in the fourth quarter, the Nitros whittled the lead down to three and had a shot to tie the game with a few seconds remaining.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE - More often than not, the Glendale High football team's woes have come down to its defense spending too much time on the field. Oddly enough, the Nitros suffered from the reverse dilemma when facing Burbank in a Pacific League game Thursday night at Moyse Field, as they were flattened by the Bulldogs' explosive rushing attack and one big-yardage scoring play after another. Burbank ran just 15 offensive plays in the first half, but made the most of them, scoring 35 points and opening the floodgates for a 56-10 victory in which three of its tailbacks topped the 100-yard rushing mark.

Legislation signed by Gov. Jerry Brown this week that would require new public employees to work longer before retiring with full benefits, while at the same time requiring them to eventually cover at least half of the contribution to their retirement plan, is expected to save Burbank and Glendale thousands of dollars per worker. The law, signed by Brown on Wednesday, also caps benefits for the highest earners and was meant to scale back the public cost of paying into the California Public Employees' Retirement System to the tune of up to $55 billion over the next three decades, according to the governor's office.
