    A Hawaii Five-O birthday celebration
    A Hawaii Five-O birthday celebration U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff was joined by close to 300 friends and supporters as he celebrated his 50th birthday Hawaiian-style at The Castaway Luau Grounds this past Thursday. Accompanied by his wife, Eve, and children,...
  • Briefly in public safety: Officer murder hearings delayed

    In a trial defined more by continuances than action, the case against the man indicted for the November 2003 murder of Burbank Police Officer Matthew Pavelka was continued again this week to March 7. The court will hear defendant David Garcia's motion...

    Olive Avenue Confidential: Getting to the hub of the matter
    Unless you've been following the issue closely and for quite some time, chances are that last week's City Council hearing about a proposed ground transport center at Bob Hope Airport was a bit of a head-scratcher. It would be convenient enough just to...
  • Burbank employees in line for bonuses

    City employees could receive up to $1.89 million in bonuses this year, even after City Hall for the first time tapped a rainy-day fund this summer to cover a multimillion-dollar budget gap. Facing a $5.8-million deficit in June, the City Council approved...

    Should public employees be eligible for more than $1 million each year in bonuses — in a city the size of Burbank? The city would prefer the payments to be called merit pay instead of bonuses. We disagree, as such lump-sum payouts are called...
  • Start the Presses: Bonus time

    Start the Presses: Bonus time
    I'm amazed, frankly. City scandals from Bell to Vernon abound. The city of Burbank itself faces seemingly endless police litigation and questions about nepotism within every one of its departments. Despite all this, the good people inside that...
  • Case against 24 Hour Fitness dismissed

    A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge dismissed a case that could have required more hoops for a planned 24 Hour Fitness on West Empire Avenue. Burbank Athletic Club owner Greg Bedrossian and longtime city critic Mike Nolan sued in late June to...
  • City can take lesson from Glendale

    Hooray for you. I for one will stand behind your objection to the city not revealing detailed information on employee bonuses. This money belongs to the citizens of Burbank and the bonuses need to be revealed. This is not the time for anyone to be...
  • State sues bounce house manufacturer

    A Burbank manufacturer of inflatable bounce houses is being sued by the state for allowing too much lead in its products. Last month the California Attorney General's Office went after 11 manufacturers of the popular inflatable structures, saying the...
  • Start the Presses: It's about guidelines, not gotcha

    City attorneys issued a notice on Wednesday that they were culling together documents in response to our latest request for employee bonus-payout information, essentially the same request they denied on Dec. 9. People around here clearly agree with our...
