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?



La Crescenta

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.
