BURBANK — Using one of the Internet’s most popular search engines, Burbank unveiled its newest tool to help residents stay informed of planning projects, officials said Monday. The planning projects map, run by Google, is an interactive list of all residential, commercial and industrial projects throughout Burbank that are being processed or have been recently approved or denied. Each project icon on the map includes information about the project and a link to its current status, said Burbank Principal Planner Michael Forbes, who created the map. “We’re always looking for a way to get the public involved in planning projects and to get more information out to the public,” he said.

After 50 years of setting fire to the same building, it was finally time to say goodbye to the Glendale Fire Department's trusty training structure on Tuesday. Most of the brick-and-mortar building - used to train firefighters on live fire exercises - will be demolished due to the amount of damage and deterioration it has sustained over the years. A new structure will eventually rise at the Glendale Fire Department's training center at 541 W. Chevy Chase Drive. “It's been an amazing tool for, literally, 50 years,” Fire Training Capt.

I am a teacher specialist for the Glendale Unified School District. I am writing to urge support for AB2160 by Assembly members Goldberg, Wesson and Strom-Martin. AB2160 will ensure that teachers have a say in the tool they are given to educate our state's children. Two years ago, my district adopted a new mathematics program over the protests of teachers. District administrators thought they knew better than we did. Now they are finding that the series does not live up to the claims of the publisher and lacks many elements of the state standards.

Larry Martin worked to the whirring music of a lathe as he used his fingers to rub polishing wax into his latest woodworking project. Martin used a small white cloth to buff the spinning maple, which was in the process of becoming the lid to a small wooden box. When he finished, the wood was still warm from the friction, and the polish gave a slight gleam to the various shades of brown that ran through curved lines and...

In typical foothill fashion, the community has come together to help the Knowlton family of La Crescenta who lost almost everything in a mid-morning home fire on March 11. "We don't know what we would do without the generosity and the kindness of this community," said Gary Knowlton. "We would be crushed if we had to face this alone." Knowlton shifted through the charred remains of his family's home this week, searching for something more than melted memories. "You see this," he said, pointing to an area on the side of his once impressive tool shop.

Residents can propose legislation through an online “wiki” by visiting www.MikeGatto.wikispaces.com . Not unlike Wikipedia, residents can propose, draft and edit a bill which Gatto may then introduce into the state legislature next year.

Glendale police fear a spike in fuel thefts last month may signal a growing trend. Nine gas siphoning thefts - most of which occurred in South Glendale and most of which involved SUVs - were reported in July. They involved thieves cutting a vehicle's fuel line between the tank and filler neck and then sticking plastic tubing into the fuel line to siphon the fuel out. In one case, a screw was used to pierce and drain a gas tank. In another case, thieves used a garden hose to siphon gas from a vehicle's tank into a trash can. The thefts are likely to continue until gas prices begin leveling off, Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

As the result of an action Tuesday, Glendale now has the legal framework to establish an economic development organization. But it won't be able to issue bonds or condemn property - attributes commonly associated with redevelopment agencies. Bonding and imminent domain powers could still return if the state legislature creates a new program to replace now-defunct local redevelopment agencies, which were axed by a state mandate. On Tuesday, with Mayor Laura Friedman absent, the City Council approved giving the city the ability to jump start economic activity using a variety of other tools, such as purchasing property and offering grants to businesses, that were once tied to its powerful redevelopment agency.
