On the eve of a complete redesign of the websites for the Burbank Leader and Glendale News-Press, I had the benefit of attending South by Southwest Interactive. Perhaps more known for the music festival, the interactive portion of SXSW in Austin, Texas, mid-March hosted some 12,000 people for exhibitions, discussions, panels, parties and, for the most part, all things tech. As the web editor for the Burbank Leader and the Glendale News-Press, I was in heaven talking Twitter, Web Hooks and live streaming — even though I didn’t get an invite from Ashton Kutcher for the VIP Foursquare party.

THIS WEEK Already a three-time champion, Jeff Tully is high stepping his way to a fourth crown this season, which will make it two in a row for the long-time sports editor of the Burbank Leader. Tully went 12-3 last week to improve to 64-26, which is three games ahead of Charles Rich, who has stumbled into second place. The others -- Hamlet Nalbandyan, Ken Biermann, Erik Boal and Edgar Melik-Stepanyan -- continue their lousy ways and are already thinking of next season.

In the wake of the discussions by the Community Advisory Boards for the Burbank Leader and Glendale News-Press, I want to announce a number of adjustments and tweaks to our offerings and features. Not all of the suggestions of the two boards have been directly implemented as yet, but I'm happy to report a number of things have already occurred or are about to go live. In particular, the News-Press board asked that the paper look to hiring reporters who are already part of the Glendale community.

One day in late March 2009 I sat with my wife at Club Tee Gee in Atwater Village, having a quiet drink. It was a Tuesday afternoon, my birthday, and the waning days of a fortunately brief spate of unemployment for the two of us. April 1 (truly!) marked my first day in the editor's chair of Times Community News. The little chain at the time claimed four newspapers: the Glendale News-Press, Burbank Leader, La Cañada Valley Sun and Crescenta Valley Sun. It also had an essentially unusable website, no social media, and a print design stuck in 1982.

On Thursday, I spent a pleasant morning and early afternoon hand-delivering copies of our new Montrose/La Crescenta edition. I'm pleased to say that everyone - literally everyone - I spoke to was pleased about our newest initiative, with many saying they're looking forward to seeing it each week. As at any small paper, staffers are called on to perform a number of tasks. I guess I can add “delivery boy” to my titles now. I'll be handing out papers, mostly along Honolulu Avenue two more times, on Feb. 27 and March 6. After that point, I'm going to leave it to the guys with the big trucks.

Some changes went into effect this week relating to the delivery of the Burbank Leader and Glendale News-Press that have caused a stir. Some of our loyal readers can't find their newspaper in the usual racks that have long stood along the two cities' thoroughfares and near supermarket parking lots. Local residents are calling and emailing us at a steady pace asking how they might find their paper. So, we wanted to take this opportunity to remind everyone that, as we have reported recently, the Leader and the News-Press are both available in their respective communities via a home delivery subscription to the Los Angeles Times.
