Burbank and Glendale students and city workers were among the hundreds of thousands in Washington for Tuesday’s historic presidential inauguration. A group of 14 Glendale High School students made the trip with two of their history teachers, as did Burbank youth Tara Bachman and Glendale Fire Chief Harold Scoggins, who said the opportunity of seeing Barack Obama sworn in as the nation’s first black president was too momentous to miss. “When you think of the significance of this, the first African American president, that can only happen once,” Scoggins said from the Capitol Monday.

BURBANK — Heightened interest in President-elect Barack Obama’s Jan. 20 inauguration has resulted in an unprecedented amount of ticket requests from residents looking to travel east for the ceremonies, officials said Tuesday. Since Obama defeated his Republican rival Sen. John McCain on Nov. 4, nearly 3,000 of Rep. Adam Schiff’s constituents have submitted requests for free tickets to the inauguration. At Rep. Brad Sherman’s office, about 1,000 constituents have requested tickets with more calls coming each day. “The inauguration of President-elect Obama is going to be one of the most historic in our nation’s history,” Schiff said.

On a beautiful late summer day in Washington, families from all 50 states gathered on the steps of the nation's capitol. They were recognized in a nationwide event honoring American families with children adopted from other countries. Rep. Adam Schiff had invited Burbank's Karen Christoffersen and John Capellaro, who nine years earlier adopted a 3-year-old girl from Russia. When John and Karen arrived in Russia for the adoption, they soon found the girl had brothers. “In 1992 we went from zero to four kids,” Karen said.
