Joyce Rudolph, Enjoy! BURBANK -- Children and parents will relate to Disney's "Return to Never Land," the "Peter Pan" sequel, because its story line mirrors today's times of adversity, believes one of its producers. The events surrounding Sept. 11 have caused children to grow up faster, when they should be experiencing a carefree youth with time to dream and have fun, said Michelle Pappalardo-Robinson. In the sequel, Wendy's husband goes off to war and his one request of their daughter Jane is that she watches over her little brother while he is gone.

OLIVE PARK — The end of the season came last weekend for the members of the Burbank Park, Recreation and Community Services Ponytail Softball League. However, although another season was laid to rest, it was all smiles and the fun was abundant Saturday at the annual jamboree at Olive Park. Like their Hap Minor Baseball counterparts the week before, more than 700 softball players invaded the park for their traditional skills competition, food and refreshments. The day began with a parade from the Burbank Towncenter Mall to Olive Park for the annual skills competition and awards ceremony.

Laura Sturza MAGNOLIA PARK -- From sushi dishes with a blended blue glaze to mixed-media collages, unique gifts are flying off the tables at the Creative Arts Center's holiday sale, which started Friday. Abstract and landscape watercolors and mosaic frames are just a few of the pieces created by more than 50 artists at this year's event, running through Dec. 19. It is the largest holiday sale that the center has produced, organizers said. Lucille Fewless, 85, has been studying at the center for 20 of the 62 years she's lived in Burbank, and she describes getting her hands in clay as a "way I can relax."

The auditorium stage at John Burroughs High School was turned into a dark forest on Tuesday. Students rehearsed for the upcoming production of "Enchanted," a dance play, which students Timothy Tristan and Lindsey Whitener wrote and choreographed. About 30 students from the Burroughs High School Dance Assn. performed contemporary jazz and ballet dances during the after-school rehearsal. "The biggest thing I have learned is to communicate the concept of this dance to other people," said Tristan, 18. Tristan and Whitener, both 18, got the idea for their dance play last year and presented it to the dance association.

Eloise Klein Healy made history as the first poet laureate of Los Angeles, but her own story starts decades ago, when as teacher in Burbank, she set out on path of repeated rejection and, eventually, validation. Appointed in December by L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Healy is now leading a new conversation on poetry in City of Angels - her position is long way from where she started as a freshman at Providence High School in 1957. “It's totally amazing,” she said. “I'm 69 years old. All of a sudden somebody pays attention to what I'm doing.” In high school, Healy played basketball and competed in the Burbank Ponytail softball league with her team, “The Pixies.” At age 21, she began teaching, and in the early 1970s, she lived for a few years on Pepper Street in Burbank, writing six days a week.
