  • Mailbag: Videographer was rightfully ejected

    I was at the town hall put on by Assemblyman Mike Gatto. We in the audience were furious that Peter Musurlian created such a scene ("Videographer booted from library," July 28). He yelled like a crazy man, and was incredibly rude to the library and...
  • Mailbag: People need to get their facts straight

    I continue to be surprised how people will play fast-and-loose with the facts, especially when those facts are on videotape. Larry Nemecek ("Another cameraman who skirts journalism," July 31) is either grossly misinformed or he is part of the apologists...

  • From the Bullpen: The most important sport of all

    Forget basketball and hockey season, for tonight marks the beginning of the only real season that Burbankers should care about: election season. Tonight, the League of Women Voters Glendale/Burbank will be holding their candidate forum in the City Council...
  • Council hopefuls plead their case

    Council hopefuls plead their case
    With an $8.8-million budget gap looming over City Hall, candidates for City Council took a hard line this week against continuing merit-based bonuses for city employees. Last fiscal year, city workers got a combined $1 million in bonuses, even as City...
  • Police Commission unhappy with council orders

    The Police Commission is poised to defy orders from the City Council to address the behavior of a fellow commissioner who has come under scrutiny for saying a public speaker should be "slapped around a bit" during a meeting. The commission last week...
  • Forum brought Frutos to the front

    Kudos to the League of Women Voters Glendale/Burbank for hosting an excellent candidates forum that actually dealt with many of the issues Burbank residents are concerned with ("Council hopefuls plead their case," Jan. 22). If you didn't get a chance to...
  • Verdugo swimming pool is on its way

    Recently there have been a number of letters regarding the closure of the Verdugo Park swimming pool (“There is no bonus to bonus payouts,” July 6). I thought it might be helpful to clarify the reason for this temporary closure. In recent...
