Ryan Carter An effort to study the possibility of the National Park Service securing local mountain land and connecting it to almost 750,000 acres in the largest urban park in the world has inched a step closer to reality. A Senate subcommittee approved legislation last week after Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) testified, urging congressional approval of a federal study that would connect the Verdugo and San Rafael mountains and hills above Burbank, La Crescenta and La Canada Flintridge to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area.

With some fanfare Friday, a groundbreaking ceremony was held for the new Bob Hope Airport-Hollywood Way Metrolink Station, which, if all goes according to plan, will be ready in 2015 to deliver passengers to the airport from the Santa Clarita, Antelope and North San Fernando valleys. Nearly $4 million in Measure R funds will pay for the new station. This transit facility is only one piece of the puzzle that must be assembled in order to provide rail connections for all travelers - Southland residents as well as the tourists who are so key to the economic vitality of the region.

Burbank police raised roughly $2,500 for the Special Olympics on Thursday by waiting on tables and serving food at the annual “Tip-A-Cop” event, officials said. A dozen police officers, cadets and explorers in uniform collected tips at the Claim Jumper in Burbank to benefit athletes in the Special Olympics. “It just gives us another opportunity to help others,” said Burbank Police Officer Joshua Kendrick. “It's a very selfless act not only for the police department, but for those who are willing to donate as well.” The funds will help cover costs for the year-round program, including transportation, facility rentals and uniforms for the roughly 500 athletes in the Tri-Valley and Santa Clarita area, according to Laura Mayo, regional director for the Special Olympics.

Laura Sturza Even moving from San Francisco's notoriously pricey housing market, Information Technology Director Jennifer Wyatt was not ready for Burbank's housing costs. "I traded one bad housing market for another," Wyatt said. In San Francisco, working for the city and county paid off -- she was able to rent a three-bedroom apartment for $1,800, which was below the market price for such a unit. Prices for three-bedroom houses in Burbank at roughly $440,000 were more than she expected, though San Francisco's market is even higher, Wyatt said.

SANTA CLARITA — The Burbank High boys’ basketball team played like a team trying to prove something in its postseason opener against Golden Valley. The Bulldogs played like the squad that upset league champion Pasadena and second-place Burroughs during Pacific League play earlier in the year. Burbank didn’t play like a team that entered the CIF Southern Section Division IIAA playoffs on a four-game losing skid. The Bulldogs played well in the second half Wednesday and were able to run away with a 70-51 wild-card win at Golden Valley.

"A student of mine came back to see me once just to thank me, and that moment has stuck with me ever since," said Bertram, a Hoover High School graduate and former assistant principal at La Canada High School.
