I have a bone to pick with Donna Huffaker Evans’ review of Steve’s Burgers (“Beefy competition among burgers,” Aug. 1). I don’t think it’s possible to judge three burgers fairly, or accurately, by eating a couple of bites, driving to the next chosen burger joint, nibbling again, and finally, chowing down in the confines of one’s vehicle. What kind of review can you give to any one of these burgers? Not a good one, I can assure you. I confess I’ve never had a burger from the Great White Hut or Senior Nacho’s, but I have had one from Steve’s Burgers, and they’re beyond delicious.

Mirjam Swanson GLENDALE -- For the past eight years, John Schachtner had been trying to catch a blue or black marlin. But to no avail -- at least not until July 27. So naturally, it was with that prospective catch in mind that Schachtner set off from shore in Billfighter that morning, the 31 Bertram boat owned by his family and used by the Hotel Palmas de Cortez during the October-through-March fishing season in...

Karen S. Kim SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- Employees of local Burger Kings served more than burgers and fries this year during the holiday season. They served a healthy helping of charity. Instead of a holiday gift exchange between employees, the 225 workers at seven area Burger Kings used the money to buy toys for needy children. The altruistic idea came from Chris Schmutzer, the director of operations for RP Restaurants, Inc. RP Restaurants, Inc. owns and operates three Burger Kings in Glendale, one in La Crescenta, one in Burbank, one in Sunland and one in Eagle Rock.

Janine Marnien The Glendale Police Officers Foundation and a local Burger King are teaming up to honor the police officers who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11. On the anniversary of the attacks, the Burger King at 3900 San Fernando Road will donate 100% of its proceeds to a memorial honoring Glendale Police officers killed in the line of duty. "I can't think of a more fitting way for the people of Glendale to support their public servants," said Sheldon Baker, chairman of the fund-raising committee and former mayor.

There's a burger chain I hate. It's not their food I despise. If I've ever eaten there, I don't remember it. What bothers me is the company's advertising. Anyone who's seen a Carl's Jr. TV commercial would surely guess that I hate their ads because they show young women or, I should say, parts of young women, displayed in bikinis, lingerie and low-cut tops. But that guess would be wrong. The content of the ads is actually pretty humdrum — tired enough to make you wonder whether advertising isn't the world's second-oldest profession, or perhaps the first.

Karen S. Kim Community programs focused on helping the homeless in Glendale have received a whopper of a grant from the federal government. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded Glendale $1.7 million for a dozen city projects for the homeless, including a health clinic, employment program, substance-abuse treatment center and a transitional YWCA shelter for victims of domestic violence who need a place to live while they receive job training and look for permanent housing.

Marshall Allen By the end of the presentation by Joe Python and the Reptile Family at Descanso Gardens on Wednesday night, about 70 children were reduced to screaming and quivering bundles of excitement, as they worked in groups to hold Kaa, a 120-pound, 12-foot Burmese python. The show was part of the ongoing Family Fun for Nature Nuts series at the gardens. Wednesday night's perform- ance by Emmy Award-winning musician Dan Crow will be the final installment.

One Burger King in Glendale wants its customers to have it their way - right to their front door. Since April 9, the Burger King on North Central Avenue has been delivering a handful of orders each day - the first Burger King in the state to do so, said franchise owner Bob Stevens. "We were chosen to be the first Burger King franchisee to have delivery in the state, so it's quite a feather in our cap," Stevens said. Following in the footsteps of delivery programs in Miami, Washington, D.C., and Houston, the fast-food company is bringing its delivery program to California.

BAKER BRINGS DOWN THE HOUSE Councilman Sheldon Baker was the funny one on the Glendale City Council on Tuesday. Baker used current topics debated by the council to poke a little humor in what are otherwise serious subjects. Baker told the dozens of residents who attended a discussion on changing the 1922 ordinance banning frontyard fences about how residents have tried to repeal it for decades. There were similar efforts in the 1980s, 1970s and earlier, Baker said.

A couple of recent incidents involving Crescenta Valley High School activities have me thinking — and boy, am I getting a whopper of a headache. As life-long supporters of Glendale Unified School District schools, and Crescenta Valley High School alumni ourselves, my wife and I and our two high-school-age sons went to celebrate Crescenta Valley's homecoming game at Moyse Field last week. As we were walking away from the stadium and talking about the game, we were stopped in our tracks by loud, aggressive yelling coming from somewhere near the stands.
