If shoppers notice a different, more scaled down version of the annual Holiday in the Park event in Magnolia Park on Friday, chalk it up to making do with limited resources. Nearly 40 merchants in Magnolia Park have banded together to fund the event after a majority of the tenants in the district - primarily non-retail business owners - voted to disband a partnership last September, ending a property tax assessment that brought in hundreds of thousands of dollars for promotions and popular public events.

As a longtime Magnolia Park browser, I just wonder how accurately the “Best of Burbank” reflects the area's merchants. To me, it seems based on those who recruit the most votes and stores that are one-of-a-kind do not have to compete with another like-company to get that vote. Categories missing from the “Best of Burbank” ballot are “Best Printer” and “Best Musical Instrument Store.” Sadly, ABC Music went out of business. As much as I like filling out the ballot every year, I'm not sure if this contest is in the best interests of Burbank's merchants.

Amber Willard PASADENA -- A former employee of a Magnolia Park boutique was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to pay restitution up to $10,000 for taking items from the store, authorities said. Ondiene Galloway, 35, pleaded no contest Friday in Pasadena Superior Court to charges of grand theft for taking between $6,000 and $10,000 from Bell Cottage, the Magnolia Park gift store where she worked from September through February. Although not an admission of guilt, a no contest plea is generally treated as the equivalent of a guilty plea by the court.
