Tykara Ferguson, a shock of black hair peering from beneath her Monterey High School graduation cap, stood at the microphone and began to serenade the class of 2009 with a hushed rendition of Vitamin C’s “Graduation (Friends Forever).” “And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives/Where we’re gonna be when we turn 25/I keep thinking times will never change/Keep on thinking things will always be the same.” Suddenly, she stopped.

Masonry program makes a lot of sense I was pleasantly surprised to read ?Dugout of Dreams? in Wednesday?s Burbank Leader. Wow, what a brilliant concept ? a masonry class at Monterey High School that helps to build a baseball dugout for Burroughs High School. Finally the school district does something that makes sense. The kids get a real world, bankable experience, both schools come out ahead, and the community wins all the way around. Well done, indeed. RICHARD J. TAFILAW Burbank Hillsides need better public transportation Once again, the Metropolitan Transit Authority is planning on largely eliminating its Burbank wing of the No. 183 bus line, the route that now goes from East Glendale to Van Nuys.
