Fresh off the heels of Glendale's well-established Cruise Night, the still-young Magnolia Park Business Improvement District entered the car-show fray with its own "Be-Boppin' in the Park" Saturday as a means to a fruitful end for their business-lined street. Magnolia Park officials have been using the new muscle of their business improvement district ?

Porto's is biting the hand that feeds it I had to laugh when I glanced at today's article about the anti-Angelides soiree down at Porto's Bakery and Café ("Businesses rally against Angelides," Tuesday). A couple of years ago the city of Burbank bent over backward to encourage the Porto family to locate a new shop in Magnolia Park. They gave them all sorts of economic incentives and goodies. I'm touched, therefore, when I hear the Portos extol the glories of free enterprise and self reliance, especially when they naturally connect it to those twin evils of taxation and big government.
