Volunteer distressed by possible disbanding
As a member of the CDV program, I was very upset with the recent
This is a vital program for the residents of the city. We need to
be prepared in the event of a disaster.
I have learned so much from this group and the individuals
connected with it. It would be a shame to lose even one person. Each
brings a commanding presence to the group.
Your paper did another article on our group. You covered the
disaster drill we did at NBC Studios. Without the individuals
connected to this group, we would not have these opportunities to
train and learn.
We need to band together as a city. The training provided by the
group is invaluable to the city.
Plane crash outlines need for new terminal here
The crash of the U.S. Airways Express plane last week at the
Charlotte, N.C., airport should serve as a wake-up call to the
Burbank politicians who have been resisting the Airport Authority in
its efforts to relocate the terminal building and bring the airport
up to FAA standards. What does it take to bring these politicians
into the modern world of air transportation?

Schools need donations from community
This school year in Burbank, as it is all over California, has
been a challenging one from a budgetary standpoint. Many parents may
be wondering what they can do about the budget shortfalls this year.
This school year, the Roosevelt Elementary staff sent home a
letter specifically telling what we as parents, friends and as a
community can do to help. Many items on the list are things we pick
up on a regular basis at any office supply, grocery, drug or even my
favorite, the 99 Cents Only stores. Some of the items are high-ticket
ones like printer and toner cartridges; others are as accessible as
pens, crayons and pencils.
If you are interested in making a donation, check with your local
elementary school or call the Roosevelt office at 558-4668.
It’s our kids who benefit the most.
