Mario Lopez, a recurring television host and tabloid staple on supermarket check stands, is best remembered for his portrayal of A.C. Slater on the ’90s series “Saved by the Bell.” But here in Burbank, where the 35-year-old keeps a home, the kids know him simply as Mario. “Thank you, Mario,” a large group of children, teens and their parents bellowed in unison at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Burbank & Greater East Valley. “Thank you, Mario,” they repeated, this time even louder.

Laura Sturza Reading women's minds is not the strong suit of the hosts of NBC's "The Other Half." But the four men make every effort to understand how women think and feel, and their viewers -- more than 65% female -- show an interest in helping train them. "You're the superior beings," co-host Dorian Gregory said of women. "You've got to explain things to us because we're not as quick." Hosted by Dick Clark, Danny Bonaduce, Mario Lopez and Gregory, the program is the only rookie talk series to be renewed for 2002-03, officials said.

Molly Shore Pigs don't like to jump, they dislike water and they're afraid of heights. But somebody forgot to tell Tobi. The 11-week-old potbellied pig, owned by Toni Silicio-Prebezac of Edmonds, Wash., strutted his stuff during a taping of Animal Planet's "Pet Star" talent show Wednesday at NBC Studios. After rolling out a red carpet with his snout, the 12-pound porker jumped hurdles, climbed up to a slide and slid belly first into a child's wading pool.

Howard Wan is a hard person to twirl. For one thing, he’s very tall. In most dance classes, the 41-year-old Pasadena resident would not be spinning around a high-shine, parquet floor with a wide smile on his face, dipping under the arm of a male partner. But the chance to do just that is what’s kept him coming to Shall We Dance, the Burbank-based ballroom dance class that caters to gays and lesbians, once a week for more than a month now, he said. Wan feels free to dip, pose and swirl in a way that only women do in other studios.

BURBANK - The Providence High boys' basketball team showed resiliency and prevailed in a see-saw affair with Salesian and will advance to the championship game of its host tournament, the 25th Annual Providence Paul Sutton Tip-Off Classic. The Pioneers overcame two separate nine-point deficits - one in the second quarter and the other in a thrilling fourth quarter - that saw Providence feed off the home crowd to claw back and seal a 54-53 victory with tenacious defense on the game's final possession.

Forget the fact you have to park in an auto repair shop across a busy stretch of Glenoaks Boulevard. Ignore that this hard-to-find eatery is next to a hectic multipump gas station. Overlook the limitation that it's only open at night. Just get yourself to Commonwealth, an outstanding little restaurant recently opened in Burbank. Commonwealth is the brainchild of co-owners Ryotaro Isobe and Peter Park. They used to run a similarly themed restaurant on the Westside but recently brought their efforts to our valley.
