Well, if you're the La Cañada High girls' basketball team, the question is, apparently, an easy one to answer ? you simply get another player of the year.

Mark R. Madler A new 52-space parking lot was among the projects City Council members approved as part of a plan to boost local interest in the Magnolia Park area. The parking lot is at the Burbank Community Church, 3310 W. Magnolia Blvd., but the city would be allowed to use it for shoppers and store employee parking when the church did not need it. Council members on Tuesday amended their budget to allocate $125,000 from the city's development agency to improve the parking lot. The estimated total cost for the improvements is $250,000.
