The Lockheed Corp. has agreed to give Burbank a 4.8-acre park that the city has been eyeing since the company announced that it was leaving town three years ago. "This will be ideal for large groups to use," Burbank Parks and Recreation Director Mary Alvord said. The Robert Gross Park, named for a former head of Lockheed, has two softball fields, a picnic area with 80 tables, a building with classroom and restroom facilities, a basketball court, a jogging path and 77 parking spaces.

The article Oct. 4 dramatized the hard-hitting support rendered on behalf of our community by our City Council representative, Joy Picus. How would any judge or jury find against a city process or elected official for listening and responding to the will of the people? I find this particular "charge" by the "unprofessionals" to be both contradictory and insidious. They pay their lobbyists tens of thousands of dollars to champion their causes in City Hall.

The Santa Monica Symphony didn't need any extraneous pomp or circumstance to herald Allen Robert Gross in his first concert as music director Sunday night at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. No speeches. No opening ceremonies. No National Anthem. Just some invigorating and very promising music making. Gross has the rare ability to excite an orchestra, to get it to reach beyond its capabilities.

Los Angeles' first do-it-yourself curb-side trash recycling project has been drastically cut by Woodland Hills residents who were defeated by steep terrain--and dropping prices for scrap paper.
