An incident last week in which a 10-year-old boy brandished a BB gun at the home of a Burbank schoolmate has put district officials on the fine line of heeding parent calls for more accountability while protecting student rights. Despite assurances from school officials at a PTA meeting Thursday night that the 10-year-old Roosevelt Elementary student - arrested and briefly detained by Burbank police - would not be returning to the campus, parents demanded that a second student who reportedly instigated the incident also be disciplined.

Police were on the lookout Tuesday for the person who shot at a Glendale woman with a BB gun. Police were called to Glendale Adventist Medical Center, where a 49-year-old woman reported Monday someone had shot at her car. The woman stopped driving at Chevy Chase Drive and California Avenue because her front-passenger window had shattered and she felt some pain on her right arm, police said. An examination revealed a small red dot on her arm, but no other injuries, according police reports.

The Republicans are not the only ones experiencing political intolerance. I have experienced people screaming profanities and displaying obscene gestures as I campaigned for the Kerry/Edwards ticket. Many of my friends and I have had our Kerry/Edwards signs stolen, and I know of other supporters who have had their cars keyed for displaying a Kerry bumper sticker. The lampposts in my front yard have been shot with a BB gun. Unfortunately, reports of politically driven vandalism and violence committed against both Kerry and Bush supporters are on the increase throughout our country.

Guest Column By Sam Valentine On my 10th birthday, I received a BB gun. It wasn't much by today's standards, but it was a rifle with a scope. It was a thing of beauty. That afternoon, I took target practice in our snowy backyard. I was shooting at targets on top of bales of hay when a red flurry of activity in one of our apple trees caught my eye. It was a cardinal, and its brilliant red color stood in stark relief against the steel- gray winter sky. I caught the bird in the crosshairs of my scope, thinking it was too far away for me to hit it. I thought I would just flush it out. But when I squeezed the trigger, I saw the bird plummet to earth.
