It must depend upon whose Burbank you’re talking about when you decide to put a “My” in front of your articles.
Not too long ago this same outfit ran another one of those insipid Joyce Rudolph stories about some singing chili festival that the BHS Vocal Music Association put on for its fans and boosters.
Parents with the Vocal Music Assn. cook up two varieties of chili — meat and vegetarian. Guests pile in shoulder to shoulder at tables in the lunch shelter while students take to the risers and perform Western songs like “Oklahoma”, “Buttons and Bows” and “Don’t Fence Me In”. In between numbers, small groups of students assigned to tables take orders then serve up salad, chili and cornbread along with lemonade or soft drinks. And let’s not forget the brownies and chocolate chips cookies for dessert.
Or the donkeys. Something fun for everyone.
So last week we challenged the founder of MyBurbank to cover this latest blockbuster story about Carroll’s abusive text messages regarding some of those same “kids,” which is now subject to several formal complaints with government agencies.
A tradition for several years, the event affords students several lessons, said choir Director Brett Carroll.
“It’s a good learning opportunity for us because we have been doing some of the pieces every year which is great because the older kids can help mentor the younger kids and it makes it very exciting for the new kids to get to instantly make relationships with the older kids which is awesome,” he said.
Uh-huh. Waiting on tables full of check-writers.
Here’s what we got in response from MyBurbank:
Lastly, I’m sorry that you would rather see me write about something at BHS that affect a few instead of the upcoming elections that will affect all. I guess I came to the wrong place.
It’s nothing but shill-ville here in Burbank, that’s what is is. Both this and the $50,000 illegal bequest to the airport boosters prove that the city and school district lack competent leadership. Who else wouldn’t see that these particular interest groups and local partisans for instance are chock full of problems?
Just one look at those VMA shows and none of this is a surprise. So where are the reporters?
