As a show of appreciation to the Burbank Fire Department, local residents this week donated $1,500 to the Children's Burn Foundation in Sherman Oaks. The donation was collected from 29 residents living between the 600 to 1200 blocks of Country Club Drive. In October, Burbank firefighters contained an 80-acre brush fire in Wildwood Canyon, protecting nearby homes on Country Club Drive. "We wanted to congratulate them for saving the Verdugo Hills," said Doris Vick, a Country Club Drive resident who presented the check to Fire Chief Mike Davis.

Laura Sturza Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks) hopes his constituency will expand as a result of redistricting to include Burbank residents. "I live in the [Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport] flight pattern in Sherman Oaks," Sherman said. "This is an issue I hear about every day ... I just talked to [City Manager] Bud Ovrom about the need for a 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew that's not just voluntary." The congressman's plans for airport resolution include bringing Burbank officials into meetings with Federal Aviation Administration Administrator Marion Blakey and completion of the airport's noise study that will support federal lobbying for a curfew.

Ryan Carter SHERMAN OAKS -- After four surgeries and 40 days in the hospital, John McCullough, a Burbank Animal Control officer, returned home Friday. He hitched a ride with the Burbank firefighters who tended to him after he burned almost half his body in a home barbecue accident July 23. As friends, firefighters and city officials gathered in a hallway, McCullough, 29, was wheeled out of a room at the Grossman Burn Center in Sherman Oaks. Accompanied by applause and waves outside the center, a bandaged and scarred McCullough stepped onto Engine 13 for a ride back to a Burbank friend's home, where he will continue his recovery.

There were several doctors in the house when Providence St. Joseph Medical Center Guild presented its fashion show luncheon Saturday at the Universal Sheraton Hotel in Universal City. Nine doctors consented to model men's wear by Sy Devore during the fashion show. And while some looked very uncomfortable hearing the cheers from the mostly female audience, others took the runway — and the attention — all in stride. The doctors-turned-models were Mark Botnick , radiation oncology; Robert Feinfield , ophthalmology; Eric Feit , internal medicine; Rex Hoffman , radiation oncology; Stephen McNeese , plastic surgery; Raul Mena , medical director of the planned Roy and Patricia Disney Cancer Center; Raffi-Jean Mesrobian , otolaryngology; August Silva , cardiology; and Stephen Yacoubian , orthopedic surgery.

Paul Clinton AIRPORT DISTRICT -- Urging Burbank Airport to seek tough noise measures as it applies to the federal government for a mandatory nighttime flight curfew, residents of Burbank and neighboring cities let their voices be heard at the first in a series of public meetings. Those who spoke used the inaugural hearing on Monday -- at the Burbank Airport Hilton -- to ask for relief from the buzz of jet noise around their homes. Burbank resident Ron Vanderford, a familiar face at City Council meetings, said the session was productive.
