BURBANK HIGH — It's the kind of experience high school athletes around the nation thrive on — the excitement of playing in a sporting event before a packed arena of peers, complete with cheerleaders and the smell of food wafting from the snack bar. Hearing-impaired athletes have a proud tradition of competing and making valuable contributions to the social ritual that is high school sports. For the most part, this significant segment of the student body hasn't had many events to call its own. The annual Southern California Deaf and Hard of Hearing Basketball and Cheerleading Tournament is designed to fill that niche by providing those athletes with a memorable day of community and competition.

Darleene Barrientos The majority of about 25 residents who gathered Thursday for the city's community outreach meeting were in favor of a new clubhouse for the DeBell Golf Course -- but where the building will be is still up for debate. The city wants to build a new, 18,845-square-foot clubhouse to replace the existing 16,252-square-foot building that was originally built in the 1950s. Melzer Deckert & Ruder Architects Inc. put together three preliminary diagrams to show where they would like to place the new clubhouse.

The theme, Burbank on Parade Goes Hollywood, is perfect for a parade in this city because of all the media here, said parade President Linda Barnes. “We are the center almost of the entertainment industry,” she said. “We have Disney, NBC for now, Warner Bros. and Universal City at our doorstep.

A bowling alley is not the first place you’d associate with food. Intermittent wafts of deodorizing foot spray? Yes. Discordant clanging and the likelihood of chipping your manicure? Yes.

Sure, nachos or chicken fingers are fine between frames, but I wondered if the food at Pickwick Bowl in Burbank or Glendale’s Jewel City Bowl could stand up to a sit-down meal.

“The Killing of John Lennon” is a pointless film about a pointless murder. Director Andrew Piddington, whose prior film credits are limited to three obscure titles, chose to dress this one up in the style of a docudrama. So, instead of a well-researched documentary or a compelling, fast-paced drama, the audience is handed a disappointing, overly long yawner, something that is neither fish nor fowl. Jonas Ball, the young actor who played Mark David Chapman, Lennon’s killer, did a respectable job with the role, but the format of the film sabotaged any creative effort on his part.
