Here we are again — nearly three years after the full House failed to pass a nonbinding resolution officially acknowledging the Armenian Genocide, and still, the political landscape appears stuck in some sort of time trap. For years, American presidents have successfully derailed Congressional attempts at calling the massacre of about 1.5 million Armenians at the hands of Ottoman Turks between 1915 and 1918 what it was: genocide. From presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton to our current commander in chief, Barack Obama, the political implications of ticking off Turkey with an official acknowledgment of the Armenian Genocide have proven to be a strong deterrent to doing what’s right.

Bill Scollon Students of history, hearing the name Tallyrand, may think of the 18th century French diplomat Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand. But if you're a Burbank resident, you think of the Tallyrand Restaurant, part of our local history since 1959. No offense to Charles, but the restaurant has nothing to do with him. The founders picked the name simply because they liked the sound of it. And the rest, as they say, is history. Tallyrand offers good, diner-style American food at reasonable prices.

In an article Wednesday about the Burbank Collection project nearing a close (“Collection time approaches”), it was stated that the low-end units will start just under $700,000. Judith Arandes of the Burbank Housing Corp. says in the article that someone would need to make at least $90,000 to afford a unit in the Collection. I don’t know how she arrived at that number, but I’d like to hire her accountant if she really believes that is the case. If she was talking about gross income, you would have to subtract taxes before even getting to the $4,650 mortgage payment, property taxes, homeowners association fees, utilities, etc. Someone could maybe work that out, but they wouldn’t be able to eat, have a car or wear clothes.

His brassy name tag read “Frank,” and Frank was all that stood between me and my bacon-encrusted ice cream. It was on the Burbank Burger King menu for only a few hours, but none had yet asked for the plat du jour, the bacon sundae. Then Frank met me, the guy whose middle name on Facebook is Bacon. He cracked a smile as he punched the order - one sundae for me and one for my wife. “You'll have to let me know how it is,” he mused. I may have imagined the whispers that soon circulated among the cooking staff as the unorthodox marriage of salty and sweet was consummated.

DOWNTOWN — Hundreds of people braved the cold and a downpour Wednesday as they stood in line to get a hot plate of turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy at the Burbank Salvation Army’s annual Thanksgiving dinner. Burbank resident Maria Nelson, 79, rode the bus and walked in the rain from her senior home to get a portion of Thanksgiving trimmings. Her clothes were soaking, and she stuffed her shoes with paper towels. Nelson was first in line for the dinner. But while her trip to the organization’s facility at 300 E. Angeleno Ave. was challenging, she said she didn’t mind because she was with her friends from the senior home, and knew she would be eating a delicious meal.

Rosette Gonzales When Maria Alvarado walked into the Burbank Temporary Aid Center Friday afternoon dressed in business casual clothing, she appeared to be an employee, not a beneficiary, of BTAC's help. But Alvarado had just come from an interview. She's a single parent, struggling to provide for five children, and she's been unemployed for the last eight months. It's because of BTAC, Alvarado said, that her family will have a happy Thanksgiving.

After a hugely successful first year, the Burbank YMCA again will host the “Turkey Trot” fundraiser on Thanksgiving Day, with proceeds earmarked to help pay the cost of memberships for people who could not otherwise afford them. Philip DiNova, the YMCA's Financial Development Director, said he expects 1,500 people, including Mayor Jess Talamantes, to take part in the run. Last year, DiNova said, the YMCA raised $400,000 from the Turkey Trot and with that money, was able to reduce the cost of memberships for 1,800 people.
