If I Were Editor of the Burbank Patch: March 14, 2011

If I were Editor of the Burbank Patch today, what would I cover?

It is Spring Break here in beautiful Burbank, California! We are going to have a lovely day your friends on the East Coast and in the Midwest would envy so give them a call! High of 76° and sunny, just the kind of day to take off school!

There are Spring Break drop-in activities at the Ovrom Community Center,
601 South San Fernando Boulevard.

The Stough Canyon Nature Center is open from 1:30-5pm today if you would like to stop by and see the Tarantulas, Snakes and other native flora and fauna.

The big day this week is Tuesday, when there will be a City Council meeting, on the agenda of which are some proposed funding cuts to Middle School after school programs. Attend if you can and let your voice be heard! If you cannot attend, you can watch it on Channel 6.

At last week's City Council meeting, in a 4-1 vote, the City Council decided to put sidewalks in on the 1800 and 1900 blocks of Screenland Boulevard, against the objections of some residents. These sidewalks would improve safety of children walking to and from Luther Burbank Middle School and Bret Harte Elementary School as well as help secure federal funding for infrastructure improvements sorely needed in Burbank.

Of course, if I really were the Editor, I would be following the Police Scanner as well, but let's hope there's no real news there on this lovely Monday morning!

This is what I would cover today...

If I were the Editor of the Burbank Patch!
