I love my Burbank Leader. When we moved to Burbank over five years ago, we paid for a subscription as soon as we figured out what a wonderful source of community news it was, and we still receive the Leader with the L.A. Times. Unfortunately, we don't receive all of the Leader. I have called the L.A. Times every week for about six weeks, because we are not receiving the real estate guide section with our paper. Apparently this is not a big problem for the L.A. Times.

The parries and retreats are more deliberate and measured. It becomes a dance - ballet has its roots in the sport from Renaissance Europe. Fast and slow. Back and forth. Tim's life story is like a fencing match. It begins slow, in a small town of 260 in Minnesota (it's now up to a booming 520)

Office vacancy rates in Burbank and Glendale remain near 20%, with massive commercial towers sitting empty as demand from prospective tenants dwindled in 2009, according to the latest report data from real estate firm Grubb & Ellis. Two new developments in Burbank, which have not been leased, have added more than 800,000 square feet of empty space to the market there, where the vacancy rate is 17.8%, up from 4% a year ago, according to the report. The empty Class A office buildings, at 2900 W. Alameda Ave. and 2300 W. Empire Ave., are among the five properties with the largest total of unleased space in Los Angeles County, according to data from CoStar Group Inc. That vacant space has added to the 1.2 million square feet of unleased office real estate in Glendale to create a glut of availability at a time when there is little demand, brokers said.
