Erin Park BURBANK -- As dusk settles on the Burbank and John Burroughs high school tracks, runners are kicking up reddish dust while soccer teams drill for the upcoming season. A cool, crisp breeze takes the sting off the Southern California sun that's riding low in the sky. School may be out for summer, but the tracks bustle during after-work hours. "It's like a freeway sometimes," said Lucy Burghdorf, community affairs coordinator of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority.

In regard to the commentary by David Wasserman, "Remark wasn't fair to Burbank High School and its students," I think it was very fair to suggest that the Burbank school board, as well as teachers, are not promoting tolerance of all races. Board members as well as teachers refuse to educate themselves on the mascot issue for their own personal reasons. In fact, the district has imposed a "no outside influence" rule on anyone speaking to the John Burroughs mascot committee about the Native American culture.

With its two top players no longer on the team, the Burroughs High boys' basketball team was undermanned when it traveled to Placentia Valencia on Friday for its CIF Southern Section Division II-AA first-round game. The Indians simply didn't have enough talent to stay with the Tigers, as Valencia rolled to a 61-38 victory. "The guys gave a great effort tonight and I ended up going with a lot of youth," Burroughs Coach Adam Hochberg said. "We were a little careless with the ball at certain times, but I thought we executed things pretty well.

Burroughs High boys' basketball Coach Adam Hochberg confirmed late Thursday that starting senior transfer players Amaad Wainright and Rashid Ewing have left the team. Both players transferred to Burroughs from Kansas City, Mo during the offseason and played just one abbreviated season for the Indians. "Wainwright and Ewing have quit the team and left school," Hochberg said. "They left the team over the weekend and checked out of school Tuesday. Yeah, they bailed out on us. " Hochberg said a problem with the players' grades, along with being homesick, prompted them to depart Burroughs and go back home to Missouri.

More than a thousand spectators filled the stands of Memorial Field Thursday night to cheer not for a game, but for John Burroughs High School students clearing the final hurdle. As the 602 red-gowned members of the class of 2013 talked excitedly among themselves off-field, family and friends filed in with video cameras and flowers to see the graduation.

BURBANK - In the continuation of a classic confrontation, although one usually not contested in water, the Cowboys ventured away from home to battle the Indians. This chapter in the long-standing historical rivalry came in the form of a nonleague swim meet between Canyon Country Canyon High and host Burroughs. "Canyon is always a really, really strong team, I mean anyone from the Santa Clarita area is always going to be a tough swim," Burroughs Coach Danny Garcia said. "It was a little intimidating the numbers they brought up. I mean, they had 70 to 80 kids and we have around 65. So, I know all the kids had some big eyes, but everyone swam really tough.

For me, it's a piece of cake. I love the same music they like. I'm into the same things,” he said. It's the elementary school crowd, to which his 8-year-old son belongs, that puzzles him more, he added. Among high schoolers, when Paramo sees something that catches his attention, he'll stop a student and say something like: “Dude, I love those kicks you got on.” “It just takes that one time that you make that connection.
