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.

With a handshake and a game of catch, Lockheed Corp. turned over a $3.2-million company park to the city of Burbank. "This is just about the best Christmas gift I could get," Burbank Parks and Recreation Director Mary Alvord said. "And I have a sports staff drooling over its ball fields." The deed to 4.8-acre Robert E. Gross Park, named for the man who was Lockheed's founder and chairman until his death in 1967, was handed over to Mayor George Battey Jr. by Lockheed Vice Chairman Vince Marafino.

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.
