DOWNTOWN — Ben Cohen looked out onto a swarming Burbank crowd Monday, attracted by free ice cream and the thumping beats of the African Children’s Choir, and vowed to help eradicate one of the ills plaguing a portion of the global population. “Some people think there is nothing we can do about poverty,” said Cohen, known more congenially as Ben, from Ben & Jerry’s. “The reality is different.” Cohen, co-founder Jerry Greenfield and members of ONE, a Washington, D.C.-based organization dedicated to fighting Third World poverty, announced the newest Ben & Jerry’s flavor — ONE Cheesecake Brownie — in front of the Burbank store, near San Fernando Boulevard.

Hot dogs and ice cream: They're not just for backyard barbecues anymore. Two new Burbank eateries have elevated the simple summertime treats to new heights. The Umami Burger chain of restaurants has certainly been written about before. But what you may not know is that the newest location in Toluca Lake is trying something new. They've quirkily updated the bygone Papoo's Hot Dog Show, adding chandeliers to the old Western theme and paying homage to the shop's predecessor by offering a line of umami hot dogs.

Gary Moskowitz HILLSIDE DISTRICT -- Andreas Tsiatsos had no idea learning aspects of the scientific method could be so much fun. But when he and his fellow classmates learned how to turn liquid matter into solid matter -- in the form of sweet, vanilla ice cream -- learning about science wasn't so bad. "You don't usually make ice cream, you just buy it at the market. But making it is a lot cooler," said Andreas, 8, a third-grade student at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School.

Maya Kukes BURBANK VILLAGE -- As part of an Earth Day celebration, Ben & Jerry's will be giving away free scoops of ice cream all day Monday. The ice cream giveaway dates back to 1979, when Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield celebrated their first year of business by giving away free ice cream. The company chose Earth Day as "Free Cone Day" to help publicize the day of environmental awareness. Free Cone Day visitors will be asked to take a pledge at Ben & Jerry's stores to help address global warming, by doing things like driving less and voicing their concerns with political messages to Congress about energy efficiency legislation.

Jacqui Brown It was pure chaos inside the Cold Stone Creamery in Burbank on Tuesday, but no one seemed to mind once the ice cream touched the lips of the patrons. The steady stream of customers, both big and small, kept the 25 volunteers -- all teachers and staff from Bret Harte Elementary School -- mashing, mixing and dishing up bowls of ice cream in a joint effort to raise funds for the school. Cold Stone employee Tim Baiady said once school let out, the place filled up. "The owner is big on fundraisers, because he likes to help out any way he can," Baiady said.

Ryan Carter With hopes of increasing awareness of a new statewide helmet law for skateboarders, skaters and scooter enthusiasts, police are rewarding young helmet-wearers with free scoops of ice cream. For the next few weeks, traffic officers are handing out Baskin-Robbins ice cream coupons for those who comply with the law. But after that, watch out. "We plan aggressive enforcement of the new [helmet] law," Sgt. Ron Caruso said. The new law, which went into effect at the beginning of this year, requires anyone younger than 18 to wear a helmet while riding a nonmotorized scooter, skateboard and in-line or roller skates.

Karen S. Kim MAGNOLIA PARK -- When Mary Talsky came to visit her sister in California two years ago, she had a craving for some frozen custard. When Talsky was told there weren't any frozen custard shops around, she set out to remedy the situation. "Californians just don't know what frozen custard is," Talsky said. "They think it's frozen pudding. They don't realize it's the best ice cream in town." Talsky had been looking to start the next chapter in her life after she left her husband, home and electrical engineering job back in Milwaukee.

Open up a newspaper or listen to the news and you're bombarded by wars, famines, financial woes, crime and disasters. Isn't time to step back, and rather than lament what's lacking in your life, focus instead on all its blessings - a child's smile, a friend's embrace, or the strength of family bonds? This has been the message in homegrown author Todd Aaron Jensen's book, “On Gratitude,” that has been inspiring the community during the month-long Burbank READS campaign. The Burbank Public Library has been encouraging people to share their own thankfulness as a response to Jensen's book.

The players and coaches of the Burbank Major Softball All-Star team were naturally disappointed when they were knocked out in the semifinals of last year's Western Region Tournament. The loss extinguished the Burbank Little League squad's chances of qualifying for the Little League Softball World Series. Trying to find a positive in the wake of the defeat, Burbank found solace in the fact that the majority of the team would be returning, and hopefully it would get another shot at making the international tournament in 2010.

I have an index card box on my desk. I carry Post-It Notes and small notepads with me everywhere I go. When I see something that strikes me, or am spontaneously blessed with some great epiphany, I jot it down and throw it into the box. The girls call it my Idea Box. I like having the answers to all of life’s mysteries at my fingertips. Here is but a brief sampling of my more brilliant, and not so brilliant, insights. The person who first came up with the term “muffin tops” to describe my chubby waistline overhang is an observant genius and should be working with Ben & Jerry developing new flavors of ice cream.

Sure, Mignon Chocolate has heart-shaped boxes, rose-shaped chocolates and wide ribbon with silk flowers wrapped around 2-foot-square golden boxes. But one thing that makes this more appealing than a standard chocolatier is a little sign hanging along Verdugo Boulevard that simply says “Coffee.” Oh, yeah. The perfect storm. Four Glendale’s Best Awards hang on the burnt-orange walls alongside pictures of celebrity customers and the remarkable family story. Several cases display tiny boxes, ribboned bags and colorful foil-wrapped chocolates that show how suited these elegant chocolates are to being party favors.

LOS ANGELES — Before a crowd of more than 40,000 baseball fans on Monday, 10-year-old Burbank resident Austin Salvador took the field at Dodger Stadium. And though he may not have been scheduled to play that night, a taste of big leagues was more than enough to bolster Austin's ambitions of being a professional baseball player. "I've always wanted to play for the Dodgers," he said. "And being on that field makes me want to play for them even more." Austin won the pre-game visit to the field — accompanied by his sisters Allison, 6, Alexa, 12, and his friend, Josef Topete, 10 — thanks to an essay written by his mother, Caroline Salvador.
