Jeff Tully With a win against Saugus last week, the Burbank High boys' swim team finished the Foothill League regular season in second place. However, the Bulldogs have higher expectations. Burbank wants to nail down second place at the league meet. The Bulldogs took a big step toward reaching that goal Monday by swimming well in the league preliminaries at the Santa Clarita Aquatics Center. "The boys put themselves into a great position to remain in second place," Burbank Coach Adam Wright said.

Julio Jimenez’s fingers were covered in brightly colored chalk Saturday as he carefully sketched the image of a chrome motorcycle on asphalt at the Downtown Burbank Fine Arts Festival. Jimenez, a Winnetka resident, said he prefers chalk over paint because he gets to use his hands. “You were born with your hands,” he said. “You can fix mistakes with your hands. It’s not a brush.” While most artists paint on canvas, Jimenez favors a rough and rocky street surface like San Fernando Boulevard to showcase his art. Event organizers invited Jimenez to create a piece of art at the festival Saturday and Sunday, and Jimenez said he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to demonstrate his talent to art aficionados.

For many of the children on hand, it was the first time they had ever seen snow, Buchanan said.

Unfortunately, I do not have the time to discuss solutions to the postal problems that we all have probably experienced at one point or another. The post office lost four to five pieces of my mail in less than five months. To add insult to injury, carriers have not only placed incorrect mail in my mail box, they have dropped off mail in my box of people who moved months ago. To add further insult to injury, I know we all have had our bad days when we may be more grumpy or feel like not doing any more work than we have to do. The employees at the post office are not any different.

Re: β€œ Crime motivates Walmart opposition ,” Mailbag, Sept. 26. The letter writer says, β€œThe type of people the store (Walmart) attracts and the crime would be bad for the rest of the businesses in that area,” meaning the Empire Center. She goes on to say we have a Costco, Target and a Kmart nearby. Well, I was in line in the Kmart store on Wednesday with three women together in line ahead of me. They bought $96 worth of merchandise, argued with the cashier over the total, and they tried to pay for it with a bogus credit card.

Molly Shore During the school year, Brian Kukan teaches math at John Burroughs High School. But come summer, the 26-year-old sheds his educator's persona and becomes what many young boys and grown men fantasize about -- a rock 'n' roll musician. Kukan and three other residents formed The Reese Place Band, making its first professional appearance Saturday at The Whisky in West Hollywood. "We're classic rock, but at the same time we're funky," said Mike Lizarraga, acoustic guitarist and lead singer.
