We’d sing the praises of Burroughs High School’s choir, but the notes wouldn’t be as on pitch as theirs. So instead, here’s a hearty congratulations to the Burroughs mixed choir for bringing home the grand prize from the national FAME Events competition last weekend. Not only did the choir win the grand prize, it also won Best Show Design, Best Original Selection and Best Choreography. Ben Robinson, 17, won for Best Male Stage Presence. And the school’s all-female show choir came in sixth out of 10 choirs.

The lawsuit filed against the state by the American Civil Liberties Union highlights what most people already know: Public education is no free ride. Fees for band uniforms and sports tournaments have long been in place, but over the years, they have spread to more and more aspects of school life — lab materials, supplemental books, rentals, field trips and extracurricular activities. It's no coincidence that these fees have propagated to fill the void left behind by the receding waters of state education funding.

There's talent in the water in Burbank ? teenagers Mia Spackman, Cody Morgan and Julie Adams are proof of that. The three singers, who have spent much of their lives singing in Burbank's choirs, proved themselves last month at the Los Angeles Music Center's annual Spotlight Awards competition. Out of the 373 contestants that enrolled in the non-classical voice section of the competition, the trio all made it into the group of 15 semifinalists in February. "This year was definitely just amazing and it was a really good boost to my confidence," said 17-year-old Mia. "Especially having two of my closest friends there with me."
