After 31 years as a very popular Burbank Superior Court judge, Alan Kalkin is being transferred to West Covina. Why is that necessary? He is probably nearing retirement. He lives in Burbank. He is very familiar with our city and its workings. He is an asset to the community. He implies that he voted against the unification of the superior and municipal courts, as many superior court judges did. He said in the Burbank Leader (Dec. 15-16) letters to the editor page that "pressure was applied so that all judges throughout the state approved of unification."

Ryan Carter BURBANK -- Local nightclub owner Jack Tavares was melancholy when he heard longtime Burbank Superior Court Judge Alan S. Kalkin has been reassigned to West Covina. Tavares, the owner of Crazy Jack's Country Bar and Grill, has not forgotten Kalkin, who in a notorious 1998 case threw out counts alleging Tavares had violated a state smoking ban, saying that the state's ban on smoking in restaurants was a "very confusing law." "I'll tell you right now, that man is straighter than anybody you have met in your life," Tavares remembered.

Karen S. Kim NORTHWEST DISTRICT -- Some might remember how years before Johnny Carson retired from hosting "The Tonight Show," Dolly Parton accidentally knocked his signature mug off the desk with her ample bosom. When that happened, Carson's assistants called Burbank businesswoman Alma Olney to the rescue. Olney's store, the 30-year-old Burbank Boulevard icon, was responsible for supplying Carson with his famous mug: a cream and brown colored ceramic piece with his name and picture emblazoned on it. Over the years, Burbank Mug Shop in Burbank supplied Carson with more than 500 mugs, Olney said.

BURBANK — Usually at this time of year, the local high school football teams are licking their wounds, looking back at the season and planning for the future. However, things are definitely different this season. For the first time, two area teams have made it out of the CIF Southern Section playoff first round in the same season. Burbank and Bellarmine-Jefferson highs are still standing, and the two will be in action in second-round postseason games this week. “Our players are very excited, and it was a fun day to be on campus,” Bulldogs Coach Ted Amorosi said Monday.

At the center of the controversy are the infamous hanging chads, which were on the Florida ballots that put the 2000 presidential election in question. Six counties in California, including Los Angeles, still use chad-style punch-out ballots, which the court said are more error-prone than other methods.
