DARRELL SATZMAN Toss out the rote justifications such as defending the 1st Amendment and satisfying the"public's right to know," and the thing that draws many of us to to the Fourth Estate is an abiding sense of curiosity. Let's face it, journalists get a rush from being on the inside. So, with no greater motivation than an overpowering inclination toward voyeurism, I took the opportunity this week to get a close up view of history by attending the Democratic National Convention.

Jeff Tully While reading a sports story in the Burbank Leader last year, Patrick Moise got an idea. "I saw the article about how Burroughs High had started a new boys' ice hockey team," Moise said. "So I had the idea that maybe we could field a team at Burbank High. "I figured it probably wouldn't be that hard." Moise couldn't have been more wrong. The job of beginning the Bulldog program has been a great deal of work and meant a lot of headaches for Moise and a dedicated group of parents.

Molly Shore BURBANK -- Burbank resident Ben Davis will barely have time to recover from an overseas flight before he sings "The Star-Spangled Banner" on Thursday night at the Staples Center for the Los Angeles Lakers and Minnesota Timberwolves basketball game. Davis, 20, a sophomore business major at College of the Canyons in Valencia, received a scholarship to study in Spain for a semester and flew into Los Angeles to perform his a cappella rendition of the national anthem.

LOS ANGELES - The members of the Bellarmine-Jefferson High boys' basketball team walked into Staples Center on Wednesday afternoon and took some time to enjoy the moment and marvel at the arena that is home to the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers. Many of the Guards still couldn't wrap their heads around the fact that they were about to play in the venue and they would have the opportunity to step on the same floor that has hosted an array of NBA greats. Following the admiration session, however, the Guards tried not to concentrate on the grandeur of their surrounding and instead focus their efforts on the nonleague game at hand against an undefeated San Gabriel Academy team.

If the idea behind a tradition is to keep something good alive, then the latest production of “A Christmas Carol” at the Glendale Centre Theatre has got the right idea. Author Charles Dickens may have died in 1870. But if all of his books and stories are still in print, it’s probably for the same reason. He had the right idea. Is it so hard to believe that a bitter, miserly old man like Ebenezer Scrooge can unfreeze his heart, when it’s touched by the love, courage and patience of a little boy like Tiny Tim?

BURBANK — The St. Francis Xavier Catholic Youth Organization boys’ basketball team had a chance to accomplish something that no other Lancers team had been able to pull off. Although the school has won two CYO championships in flag football, it had never won a title in basketball. Although St. Francis Xavier came one game away from accomplishing its goal, the squad put together a fine playoff run, upsetting their share of teams along the way. In a semifinal game March 16, the Lancers fell to Marina Regina of Gardena, 44-43, in double overtime at Verbum Dei High.

Those familiar with the name Laszlo Tabori might know him as the third man to break the four-minute mile, or the athlete who competed in the 1956 Melbourne Summer Olympics. A successful athlete and coach, Tabori is internationally known for his exploits on the running track. However, many residents of Burbank and surrounding areas have enjoyed a much more personal relationship with the man. In 1973, he formed the San Fernando Valley Track Club, which was run for years out of Burroughs High.

Some associate the Los Angeles Kings with silver and black. I remember Forum Blue and Gold. Some extol the virtues of Wayne Gretzky, Luc Robitaille and Anze Kopitar. My heroes were Marcel Dionne, Rogie Vachon and Butch Goring. Some get a kick out of watching the Kings in front of a sell-out crowd at the ultra-modern Staples Center. I derived just as much joy seeing the Kings in front of a half-empty arena at the venerable Inglewood Forum. With the Kings just one game away clinching their first Stanley Cup Final championship in the 45-year history of the franchise, I can't help but to wax nostalgically about a team that had essentially become the Rodney Dangerfield of the NHL. And like many long-suffering fans, a title is something we thought we would never witness.
