I recently had the opportunity to meet the new 2011-2012 President of the Burbank Sunrise Rotary Club, Mr. Rodney Gregson and we had a very pleasant chat. He is a fairly new member of the club and is very excited about all the opportunities available for helping people, not only in our community but in the whole world. They have been very busy during the last month with fundraising. They had a yard sale at a member's house (in conjunction with the Noon Rotary Club) and they even had a Jamba Juice truck show up as an attention-getter and additional fundraiser.

Bands of bicyclists descended upon the Chandler Bikeway at California Street on Saturday for the third annual self-guided bike tour of the Magnolia Park business district. Hundreds of bicyclists, after registering at a tent on the Chandler Bikeway, got their “passports” stamped at participating shops along Magnolia Boulevard in what organizers said has become an increasingly important marketing tool for the district, especially given the unfolding recession. As opposed to the Be-Boppin in the Park car show event, which typically draws thousands of people from throughout the region, Saturday’s “Egg-Cellent” Magnolia Bicycle Tour was conceived to take aim at the more immediate area, said Robin Faulk, marketing director for the Magnolia Park Partnership.

Mark R. Madler Two figures in sunglasses, one in a full-length black coat, the other in suit and tie, battled it out in front of a soda machine. After vanquishing the suited figure in a quick fight, the man in the black coat does a victory stride to the soda machine, drops in some change and pulls out a Pepsi. To capture that 60 seconds of video, a group of Providence High School seniors put in numerous hours of pre-production and filming. But it was all worth it when they won best editing honors in the school's Media Showcase Awards ceremony Saturday at the Walt Disney Animation Theater.

TULLY TALK Organizers of a big city-wide raffle envisioned the event would be a great way to raise funds for three local tackle football programs. However, what the organizers might not have envisioned is how much the impact of the raffle would change the life of a mother and her family. For more than two months, players, relatives and friends from the Burbank, Burroughs and Burbank Vikings football programs sold raffle tickets at $5 a pop. The grand prize in the game-of-chance was a beautiful blue five-speed 1991 Honda Civic hatchback.
