In regard to statements by Viviano Garcia and Joe Garcia in the story "Latino Residents Demand Ouster of Burbank Official" (Times Valley Edition, Feb. 9) that "Mr. Shively's remarks are offensive to all citizens of Burbank": I will not tolerate a self-appointed, self-pitying vanguard representing me on public issues without my permission. Their letter is 100% political and lacks merit. Apparently, they lack the ability to determine how the comment was made and are only interested in jumping on the bandwagon.

Hart High quarterback Darren Renfro attempted only 14 passes in Friday night's Foothill League game against Burbank. Given that uncharacteristically low number, Hart fans not in attendance probably would assume that Hart either had lost or Renfro had been injured, oh, about two minutes into the game and didn't return. Or possibly both. It was neither. Hart discovered a running attack that has been out of commission since last season and ground out a 17-14 victory over Burbank at Burroughs High.

Patchett, 37, a 10-year veteran of Burbank government and assistant to the city manager for the last two years, said his resignation was not connected to that of City Manager Andrew Lazzaretto, who left earlier this month under pressure from new Mayor Mary Lou Howard and a newly constituted City Council.

Katella High School basketball Coach Tom Danley may have called it a "terrible" victory Tuesday. But it was good enough to allow his team to advance past Burbank and the second round of the Southern Section 3-A playoffs. Burbank made it terrible for Danley's players by clawing back into the game after a flimsy first half.

It was great finally seeing coverage of what I have found to be one of the most tranquil areas of the Valley ["In Burbank, There's No Shortage of Horse Sense," Dec. 18]. There aren't too many other places you wake up to the sound of horses clopping merrily down to the trails that head up into the hills of Griffith Park, and all the neighbors know as well as help each other as if we were living in Mayberry. However, your article covered only the half of it ... the eastern half. The Burbank West Rancho is a tiny island of a community flanked by Warner Bros.
