Karen S. Kim BURBANK -- The Burbank City Council plans to announce tonight that it will pay a lobbyist consultant firm $10,000 per month to monitor federal legislation regarding airport policies. The City Council hired Copeland, Lowery & Jacquez, a Washington, D.C. lobbyist consultant firm, on July 16. The decision to employ the firm came as the council began to fear federal legislation might usurp local control of airports. "For us, it's scary that, all of a sudden, Uncle Sam can come in here and ram something down our throats.

Buck Wargo got the story right ("Glendale residents silent on noise," Aug. 25). I am a Glendale resident. I was in the audience. And, yes, the meeting was sparsely attended by Glendale residents. Yes, there is an apathy about the airport issue in Glendale. I chose not the speak but rather go one-on-one with both Glendale's and Burbank's commissioners. I prefer to put my remarks in writing. I think the News-Press has to take a hit this time. The News-Press failed to make any mention of the meeting in the edition of the Aug. 24, the day of the meeting!

GLENDALE — The Glendale Rose Float Assn. — the creative brains behind the city's annual entry into the Tournament of Roses Parade — got approval on Wednesday to go forward with what some say is one of the group's most ambitious float designs. The Glendale Parks, Recreation and Community Services Commission unanimously approved the design of "Bon Voyage," the city's 2008 entry in the parade. In accordance with the parade's 2008 theme of "Passport to the World's Celebrations," Glendale's proposed entry will feature a biplane soaring away from the Glendale Grand Central Air Terminal, the city's defunct historic airport.

Karen S. Kim AIRPORT DISTRICT -- Business goes on as usual today at 2650 and 2700 Hollywood Way. But just one year ago, a 108,000-pound Southwest Airlines jetliner skidded onto Hollywood Way and came to rest just 39 feet away from the two businesses -- a gas station and a restaurant. "Oh, it's not much of a concern at all anymore because we weren't here when it happened," said Cai Yi, owner of Silver Lake Chinese Fast Food. When the Boeing 737 skidded to a stop in front of Yi's business the evening on March 5, 2000, the restaurant was closed.

In response to those who say the city of Burbank is “glorifying” Sgt. Neil Thomas Gunn’s death. The candles, flowers and flags flying at half-staff are celebrating the incredible life that Gunn led. As a daughter of a retired Burbank police lieutenant, I understand the incredible sacrifice that these men and women must face while dealing with patrolling and protecting the beautiful city of Burbank. If anyone should know anything about suicide, it would be a police officer, because they are the first ones to respond.

Bring back the jury on tennis courts Maybe it’s just a hunch, but why do I have the distinct suspicion that none of the Glendale City Council members chooses to drive by the Louise and Colorado streets’ Adult Recreation Center tennis courts at sunset on their way to some South Glendale function, attending to their personal business interests, or even on a circuitous way home from work? Could that just happen to be the case because none of these grown-up men might care to actually see all the happy, healthy kids of both genders having such a fine time out on those courts — i.e., because they know their “cut costs at all costs” votes will be responsible for the wrecking crews who will, at least the last I heard myself, all too soon be swinging not tennis rackets but demolition balls where the kids now play (“Council votes to fill fund gap,” Sept.

In columns I write for our sister newspaper in Burbank, I've developed something of my own "Sports Illustrated Curse." It might have now splashed over to Glendale. In the case of the magazine, believers in the curse hold that teams or athletes featured on the cover suffer an immediate reversal of fortune, and are sure to lose their next big game, fight or race. In my case, in recent weeks when I've written about an issue up for discussion at the next Burbank council meeting, time and again I've seen those items yanked from the agenda at the last minute.

Editor's note: Doug English, who graduated from Crescenta Valley in 1999, began trying out for the U.S. World University Games team in Colorado Springs, Colo. on June 27. DAY ONE The night before my plane left, I could not sleep. So many thoughts were going through my head. Who am I going to room with? What's the food going to be like? Am I going to be able to play with these guys? So many things. When I finally arrived at the airport Friday morning, there was a line almost to the other terminal to get past security.

Several Southwest Airlines flights out of Bob Hope airport -- including some local flights -- are delayed due to the heavy snow storms in the Northeast. [UPDATE 2:11 p.m.: "A number of flights in the Southwest system are delayed mostly because the area they are going to or coming from are markets outside the West Coast," said airport spokesman Victor Gill. ] The only nonstop flight to the area, a 9:39 p.m. flight to New York's John F. Kennedy airport operated by Jet Blue, has been canceled, according to Jenny Dervin, spokesperson for the airline.  Gill advised visiting the Bob Hope Airport homepage to look up information on specific flights , as well as using Southwest's mobile app.  "The traveler has to remember the primary source of information is the airline," he said.

I find it amazing whenever I hear of Los Angeles-area airports struggling for a larger passenger load. After 42 years as an Angelena, I will only put myself through the agony of flying in and out of LAX when I travel internationally. At all other times I fly out of Burbank because the easy access, proximity to my home, close-by parking, efficient terminals and lack of crowds make these flights as close to an “old-time” flight experience as I can get in this electronic age. I urge other residents to take advantage of the many assets our local airports offer.

The recent letter to the editor regarding the Bob Hope Airport and why it is in trouble is spot on. Everything the writer lists is valid, including the steep daily parking fees, no direct flights and more. I too, long ago, used to use the airport on business and personal trips. But no more, as I got really discouraged when I had a nine- or 10-hour flight with stops in two cities to get to my destination. On top of that, the price difference between Burbank and LAX generally was much higher from Burbank, not to mention the fact that several airlines no longer use the facility.
