Paul Clinton CIVIC CENTER -- The City Council wants to know what you think about city services. At its meeting Tuesday, the council approved a comprehensive survey to get a finger on the pulse of residents' attitudes about the quality of life in Burbank. The city will ask residents whether they are satisfied with police, fire, library, parks, public works and utilities services. The council had set aside $25,000 in the 2000-2001 budget to hire a consultant to oversee the survey, which will get underway in the spring.

Paul Clinton MEDIA CITY CENTER -- Tom Beirne isn't the kind of guy you'd think would write a children's story. At least not if you heard about his day job. A New York City police officer, the stocky, muscular Beirne has seen horrors most adults would choose not to face. But there he was, participating in the weeklong Burbank International Children's Film Festival, which ended Friday. The 34-year-old Beirne flew into town, script in hand, to make his dreams come true as a professional writer.

Paul Clinton BURBANK -- Film and television production companies on their way to Canada may think twice now that Gov. Gray Davis has signed into law two bills designed to stem the flow of jobs out of state. The bills will offer producers a short list of state-owned properties filmmakers can rent for a minimal fee as well as rebates on some shooting fees. Davis signed the bills, both cosponsored by State Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank), on Sept.

Paul Clinton HILLSIDE DISTRICT -- Diane Kiwan's blood boiled when she stepped off her porch. Instead of the signs she had planted in her lawn in support of her favorite candidate for Congress, the Burbank resident came face to face with a decidedly undemocratic act of vandalism. Her signs no longer trumpeted "Schiff for Congress." Instead, the message was obscured by a different viewpoint -- "He's Clinton to the Gore ... The face of gun hatred in America."
