Trash outside of school is disgraceful...

Trash outside of school is disgraceful

The underside of the bleachers at Burroughs High School, on the

Verdugo Avenue side, looks like a city dump. If it must be left in

such disarray, can’t the city put up a wall with murals on it? Or

anything to hide the mess? It really looks awful.

Ministers have right to say ‘Jesus Christ’

What a sad world this has become when a minister cannot say “Jesus

Christ” at the council meetings, but it is OK for a speaker to use

“Jesus Christ” in vain.

Seems like everybody but ministers has free speech.

Sad, sad world.

Candidates’ school involvment is tops

This is in response to the Burbank Teacher Assn.'s letter

regarding more information on the candidates it is backing for school

board.

While it was informative to find out what these candidates do for

a living and their community involvement, what came to my mind in

reading through the brief biographies was one question: What

involvement have these candidates had regarding school issues? As a

community member who has served on several board committees and been

active in the Parent-Teachers Assn., I am aware of how a basic

knowledge of school procedures and issues at elementary as well as

secondary levels gives an individual a good idea of what is involved

in serving as a member of the board.

A candidate who has been involved as a community member with

school-related issues at the district level, if elected to serve,

will be able to get up to speed faster and make informed decisions

better than someone who hasn’t.

This, to me, is important to deciding who would best serve our

children.
