Although we still seem to be a best-kept secret in Burbank to many (until we mention either Holiday Baskets or Camperships) Burbank Coordinating Council is celebrating its 80th birthday! The luncheon will be on March 4 at Little White Chapel from noon to 1:30 p.m. We want to share the fun with Burbank's whole community since so many of you participate in either Holiday Baskets or Camperships. It has been wonderful all these years and we plan to continue both programs for many years to come.

Irma Lemus BURBANK -- School district officials are hoping those dreaded lunch lines will be a thing of the past. The way school lunches are distributed has changed. At the start of the school year, the district implemented Accu-Scan, a point-of-sale system that works much like a debit card. Previously, students had to present a ticket book to buy lunch, officials said. Under the new program, elementary students receive a card with a bar code, and secondary school students are given PIN numbers.

Strange afternoon, strangely wonderful. For all the things about L.A. that I mock, tease about, sigh deeply over, there are always moments like these, usually in modest surroundings with everyday Joes, that make me wonder if I've finally been reeled in by a city that frequently over-promises. I have long debates with friends over our region's high cost of living, the postage-stamp yards, the monotony of the too-glorious weather. At a dinner party, one buddy insisted that headhunters no longer recruit here because those they hire for out-of-state jobs invariably return to California within a few years.

BURBANK - As the Ultimate Fighting Championship seemingly gets bigger and bigger with network television, pay-per-views once a month if not more and a fan base growing across the globe, it cannot get any bigger than UFC 146 - literally. The May 26 event at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden - for the first time in company history - will feature an all-heavyweight lineup across the pay-per-view main card, headlined by UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos defending his title against Alistair Overeem in a bout that will feature roughly 500 pounds of knockout power.

Location is everything. Unfortunately for the McCormick & Schmick's seafood restaurant in Burbank, its location appears to have led to its closure. The restaurant, tucked in an office/commercial corridor along Olive Avenue near Warner Bros. and NBC studios, had already stopped opening on weekends prior to its closure last week, said Burbank Deputy City Manager Joy Forbes. Forbes, who spoke with the restaurant's assistant manager on its last day of operation on Jan. 3, said the business had been relying on lunchtime crowds and happy-hour patrons who might stay for dinner.

A group of senior citizens is imploring city officials to reinstate a nutritional meals program at a popular park facility, citing everything from inconvenient commutes to the familial atmosphere forged over years of lunch meetings. Senior nutrition lunches at McCambridge Recreation Center were moved to the Joslyn Adult Center and Don Tuttle Senior Center as the park facility underwent seismic retrofitting in October. While the facility at McCambridge Park is slated to reopen next month, Chris Dasté, director of the city’s Park, Recreation and Community Services Department, submitted a draft proposal to make the two-center system permanent as part of his 5% budget cut for fiscal year 2010-11.
