In the ever-evolving script for the 710 Freeway tunnel, the Burbank City Council this week opted to stay out the political drama, citing insufficient data on the massive project proposal. Its decision came despite a slew of opposition speakers who recanted the same refrains that have nagged at other city councils, most recently in Glendale. Armed only with unscientific projections and assumptions, the opposition camp to a proposed underground tunnel linking the 710 and 210 freeways has had some success in pushing elected officials from Glendale to La Cañada and the California Legislature into taking a premature stand against it. Truth is, a full environmental assessment on the impacts of the proposal hasn’t been completed.

Do high gas prices make you angry? Do you vote, listen to talk radio, like discussing politics or read the newspaper? Of course you read the paper, or you wouldn't be reading my amazing critique. If you answer yes to any of my questions, I highly recommend seeing the political drama, "Syriana." If my questions don't excite you, at least show some personal responsibility and register to vote. "Syriana" is a fictional drama that tells the story of the USA's reliance on oil from Middle Eastern countries.

Jacqui Brown MAGNOLIA PARK --Blake LeWolt said he's not buying into any of the hype about the presidential candidates. The teenager believes in the power of an informed decision based on multiple news sources, not just what one person says or believes, and feels that adults shouldn't vote Republican or Democratic just because of their religious affiliations. "You can't just make decisions based on what your parents say or what the bands you listen to say," the 16-year-old said.

Mark Scott's career has led him up and down California, and across the country and back, so it's no surprise he and his wife are always debating about which region they should call home. The 63-year-old Fresno-native spent two decades building his career in the city of Beverly Hills - while living in Glendale - six years leading Spartanburg, South Carolina before a brief stint managing Culver City and, most recently, three years helping to stabilize his hometown after the crippling effects of the economic recession.
