Ryan Carter BURBANK -- Police arrested a 19-year-old transient from Los Angeles for the alleged killing of a Burbank man found dead in his apartment's bathroom after a suspicious fire, officials said. Juan Carlos Martinez-Fuentez, 19, was arrested on suspicion of killing a man late Friday, one day after firefighters found a 62-year-old man dead in his bathroom in a second-story apartment on the 1100 block of North Glenoaks Boulevard after an early morning fire, Burbank Police Lt. Tim Stehr said.

As a rule, they don't make fire halls to host children's programming. For almost 20 years, the Burbank Boys and Girls Club has made this arrangement work - a clever re-imagining of a vacant fire hall has provided an educational and social haven for kids ages 6 to 18 outside school hours. It's near the corner of San Fernando Boulevard and Buena Vista Street, right off the Golden State (5) Freeway. The location is great for emergency vehicles responding to fires. It's a terrible location for family programs.

Regarding the Community Commentary “Play shouldn’t be such an issue,” by Mike Delbarian (June 25), I find the title of this article oddly apt: The play in question really shouldn’t be such an issue. I am completely appalled that any person should find the pieces directed by Scott Bailey to ever be “vulgar,” “deceptive” or “lascivious.” The plays he directs are works of art to be appreciated despite their ephemeral nature.

Not many normal guys go to the movies Super Bowl weekend. As you know by now, I?m not normal, and therefore I went against the grain when my teammates brought me along to see the action film, ?Taken.? This intense new release took us by surprise, got us fired up for the big game, and hopefully we?ll see a sequel before Los Angeles gets its own NFL franchise. Liam Neeson stars as a retired spy named Bryan Mills who has relocated to Los Angeles to be closer to his 17-year-old daughter, Kim, (Maggie Grace)

I was speaking with someone recently about a wonderful book by Christian author Francine Rivers called, ?Redeeming Love.? I had read this book about seven years ago. It is modeled against the book of Hosea in the Old Testament. This person is going through some emotional and spiritual healing in her life from wounds that have been with her since she was a child. I never would have recommended this particular book to this woman because of where she is in her healing at this point.

The school committee of Gloucester, Mass., voted unanimously this week to allow Gloucester High School’s health clinic to distribute contraceptives to students with parental permission. The move came after more than a dozen girls at the high school got pregnant in what was rumored to be an organized pact. Was the committee right to give the school authority to provide contraceptives, or should this be an issue handled by families? I believe the Gloucester school committee approached this crisis situation in the appropriate manner.

Move would not create havoc Regarding the Burbank Leader's question, "Do you think karaoke bar Dimples will create safety problems for the neighborhoods it's moving into?" first off, I live just a few blocks from Dimples and I have no problems with the relocation of the restaurant. Dimples is moving about one block from its original location. This new spot is farther away from houses and has more parking than the original. It is basically isolated on an island between NBC and the Acapulco Restaurant.
