BURBANK — The spring gas price surge has hit motorists early this year, with rates approaching records set in 2007. The average cost of a regular gallon of unleaded gasoline in the Los Angeles area on Monday was $3.47, up 35 cents from prices a month ago, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California’s Daily Fuel Gauge Report. That comes within about 3 1/2 cents of 2007 records, said Jeffrey Spring, a spokesman for the automobile club. “The key reason really is that oil prices are staying so darn high and running up even higher,” he said.

Burbank Unified school board members have decided to hold off on putting a $110-million bond measure on the November ballot, preferring instead to bring it to voters sometime in the spring to ensure a better turnout. The bond extension would need 55% voter approval. It would be used to upgrade classrooms and fire alarms, and add irrigation lines for reclaimed water and new technology at schools districtwide. It would also be used to improve roofs, plumbing, air conditioning, asphalt and fences at school sites.

For five years, it was used to playing in the postseason. It even shared a Pacific League title during an impressive five-year run. Then, a disappointing 2011 season happened. A 3-4 record in league relegated the Burbank High football team to a sixth-place finish, and an early exit to its season. The Bulldogs started spring practice eager to get back to their winning ways, but also determined to have productive and structured sessions. "We tried to get our offense installed, and we did that very well," said Burbank Coach Hector Valencia, a former Bulldogs player.

Transportation commissioners continue to examine ways to save money before a funding surplus is exhausted, and small fees for bus services for seniors and the disabled are among the possibilities. Officials say services like BurbankBus, BurbankBus Senior & Disabled Transit and Got Wheels!, which was retained only for the summer months, rely heavily on sales tax revenue that has steadily declined during the economic downturn. “We don't have the surplus we had in previous years in the Proposition A fund,” Transportation Commission Chairman Paul Dyson said.

The resounding answer was "Yes!" when Miss Burbank Ashley Karp asked hundreds of children if they were ready to hunt for Easter eggs. More than 1,000 parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and children descended Saturday morning on McCambridge Park for the annual Spring Egg-Stravaganza. Although Park, Recreation and Community Services officials were expecting 500 children for the three morning egg hunts, families armed with bunny ears and a wide assortment of spring baskets — from traditional colorful wicker baskets to grocery bags to stuffed animals with egg-holding compartments — kept filing onto the baseball field.
