    Vindictive. That's the only way to categorize the actions of the City of Burbank after they had the power and phone lines cut from Tinhorn Flats, the oldest bar in town. How do we know it's vindictive and not for medical reasons? Because they did it two days before the ban on indoor dining was to be lifted... “You will comply.” That’s the message the city of Burbank is sending to Tinhorn Flats Saloon & Grill as well as every resident in their city. Anyone who is willing to cross them, as the oldest bar in the city has been...

    The settlement with Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, which also includes another $400,000 from the state — avoids further litigation over the matter at a time when the U.S. Supreme Court's conservative majority has signaled that rights to religious practice indoors outweigh the interests of the state to compel places of worship to adhere to public health orders.. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, Aug. 31, approved a $400,000 settlement with a San Fernando Valley church that had defied the county’s health order through the thick of the pandemic. The settlement with Grace Community Church in...

    A San Fernando Valley lawmaker wants the White House to put a rug woven by Armenian orphans and given to President Calvin Coolidge nearly a century ago on public display. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) is among a bipartisan group of U.S. Congress members calling on President Obama to reverse the White House’s decision to back out of lending the rug out for a Dec. 16 exhibition at the Smithsonian Institute. The Armenian orphan rug, which measures 11′ 7″ x 18′ 5″ and is comprised of 4.4 million individual knots, reportedly took girls in the Ghazir Orphanage of Near East Relief...

Patio said the competition, which will be sanctioned by the Philippine Practical Shooters Association (PPSA), aims to show the public the...

    A man proclaiming himself the "Prince of Peace" intent on saving souls from idol worship ran amok Tuesday morning at San Fernando Cathedral, toppling seven statues, reducing parts of them to piles of dust.

"He was agitated. He started yelling that he was going to save the people in the church and he was going to start by smashing the statues," said Deacon...
