Hope is renewed once again in the United States as we prepare to inaugurate the 44th president. While we celebrate democracy, the peaceful transfer of power, and the election of the first African American president, I would also like to mention another historical fact. Barack Obama is our first restaurant reviewer elected to lead our nation. Back when he was a relatively unknown Illinois state senator, Obama appeared on a local PBS restaurant review show as an amateur critic. While I do not think White House Executive Chef Cristeta Comerford has to worry about detailed reviews of her entrees from the new president, she might brush up on her deep-dish-pizza recipes.

Laura Sturza Residents are probably heaving sighs of relief this morning as calmer winds take the place of the overwhelming ones that topped 65 mph earlier this week. The wreckage of downed trees and power lines left many in the city navigating the streets with caution. "[The roads] are pretty hectic," local document and film deliveryman Salvador Garcia said Monday. "Some streets were closed off, and you've got to watch out for falling debris." Santa Ana winds arrived Sunday night on the heels of a hot spell that had Burbank's temperature reaching 85 that day. Winds were expected to subside by this morning, with temperatures returning to the seasonal norm of 60 to 70 degrees by Thursday, forecasters said.

Those of us who relocated to the West Coast know what it's like to crave a special dish from back home. Crab cakes from Maryland, cheese grits from South Carolina, pirogies from Cleveland, a salad topped with French fries from Pittsburgh -- whatever. Those who hail from Chicago owe a debt of gratitude to Arlene Mantegna -- wife of actor Joe Mantegna -- who decided to bring a bit of the couple's hometown to Burbank. The result is the tasty casual restaurant fittingly called Taste Chicago.

For the better part of the 1990s, I covered community, social and charitable events for the Burbank Leader. Reporting on the people and events of Burbank proved to be an experience that I found to be nothing short of a pure privilege. I was constantly amazed by the goodness, kindness and spirit of community that thrives within the borders of Burbank. In 1999, I turned my focus from my writing career to public service. Winning a seat on the Burbank City Council gave me the chance to serve as Burbank's 68th mayor.

When I go to Chicago, I pack some clothes that won't be coming back with me - socks wearing through at the heel, shirts that don't really match anything else in my wardrobe, shoes that I think about wearing but rarely do. It's not that I like visiting the Windy City badly dressed, but I know that every nook and cranny in my suitcase will be filled with food on the way back. Chicago has ethnic delis that feature cultures rarely seen in L.A., and my luggage will be bulging with Lithuanian brown bread, Italian cured beef, arcane Polish cold cuts and other delights that are unavailable locally.
