"What do I need to do to make this year a success?" That is the question Lincoln Elementary School students were asked their first day of school.

A boom box playing "On the Road Again," filled the air with the theme. New principal Linda Edmond came up with the "road to success" theme to help motivate teachers and students alike.

Kudos to the city for implementing the Bob's theme in the Rose Parade. What a great float, irrespective of not winning. I have fond memories of the BB, having my parents take us out to eat at the Colorado Bob's Big Boy in the early 1970s. This was a special New Year's and the Bob's Big Boy float is an all-American classic that really put our city in a favorable light. I would love to go back in time and relive the BB, Pizza Shack, etc., when this city had some solidarity.

Spirit Week is held to lighten the mood on campus before SAT, Standards, Golden State and advanced placement exams hit and spring testing begins. The week included a different lunchtime activity and costume theme for students each day. This year's activities and themes included a skateboarding contest and "nerd" and "pajama" day.

On Saturday, April 14, my family went to my sister's house and walked to Verdugo Avenue to watch the annual Burbank on Parade. I mainly participate in viewing the parade in order to spend time with my family more than the excitement of the parade itself. While there is an appeal to a small-townish parade with civic leaders filling in for celebrities, BOP is an embarrassment to a city as wonderful as Burbank. With “The World of Aviation” as its theme, I was hard pressed to notice the theme what with all the police, fire, and emergency vehicles driving down Olive with their lights and sirens on. I don't intend to demean the organizers and volunteers that must put in countless hours organizing the event.

An oil painting featuring the Statue of Liberty surrounded by the floating heads of popular Armenian figures recently became the first donated work of art to the city in more than a decade to be turned down. The painting also includes flowing wheat and Mt. Ararat - a snow-capped mountain in Turkey where, according to biblical lore, Noah's Ark came to rest. The mountain can be seen from Armenia and Iran. The work also features a statue of an Armenian princess. While one commissioner called it “a beautiful theme,” the painting failed to make it past the Arts & Culture Commission or City Council and onto a city-owned office wall - the first time that's happened since 2000, said Public Art Project Manager Ripsime Marashian.
