Ryan Carter With city councils from Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena gearing up as early as next week to approve renaming the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport after Bob Hope, certain agencies within the airport are readying for no change at all. Though the costs of changing the name are estimated to be close to $250,000 in signage changes -- much of which the airport will provide -- entities like the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport...

Laura Sturza Madelyn Sawyer, the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport's federal security director, has left her post -- less than five months after being appointed to the position. The departing director was instrumental in overseeing the transition from contracted to federal baggage screeners, and for building a cooperative relationship between the Airport Authority and the Transportation Security Administration, said Mike Post, the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport security chief.

Karen S. Kim GLENDALE -- Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport will continue collecting a $3 passenger facility charge for the next 11 years, but this time the funds will be used for a different purpose, the Federal Aviation Administration said Monday. The airport had been collecting a $3 passenger charge since 1994, but the revenues were designated for acquiring land for a new terminal. Through the FAA's approval of a new PFC application, the airport can now collect up to $73.7 million, and more than $66 million will go toward the acoustical treatment of Burbank and Sun Valley homes and schools, airport officials said.

Josh Kleinbaum Bob Hope Airport is two-thirds of the way home. The Glendale and Burbank city councils Tuesday voted unanimously to rename the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport to Bob Hope Airport in honor of the late entertainer and longtime Toluca Lake resident. Pasadena is expected to approve the name change next week, which will make the new moniker official. "It gives the airport a recognizable name," Glendale Councilman Rafi Manoukian said.

I don't know why it seems that liberal Democrats like state Sen. Adam Schiff always go to big government agencies to solve problems that are best handled at the local level. Point being the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport issue. While he tries to get things from big government agencies that we're not going to get anyway, Schiff continually seems to snub his nose at the power of the people. Probably thinking as most liberals do, that government knows what is best for the people.

The committee will discuss an environmental assessment for Caltrans' construction of an interchange at the intersection of Empire Avenue and the Golden State (5) Freeway.

During his career with the Burbank Police Department, Edward Skvarna often thought that the then Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport would be a nice place to work. Now that he is chief of the Bob Hope Airport Police Department, he is finding out just how true that is. "If I'm not doing some public service, I don't know what I'd be doing," said Skvarna, who lives in the Santa Clarita Valley. "It's a natural place for me to be." Skvarna was named as the new chief of the 32-member department during a ceremony on Sept.

Mark R. Madler and Fred Ortega The City Council decided Tuesday night to change a city law and name two of its members to serve on the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority commission. The council will vote next week on an ordinance that would allow elected officials to serve on the committee that oversees operations at Bob Hope Airport. City law currently prohibits council members from serving on the commission. Councilman Bob Yousefian nominated himself and Councilman Dave Weaver for two of the three commission positions.

Mark R. Madler With a June 1 deadline looming for Bob Hope Airport commissioners to take their seats, the City Council will take a hard look tonight at who it will appoint. The council needs to appoint three representatives, including a replacement for a member who died earlier this year. One option before the council is to pass a new law allowing one of its own members to serve on Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority. The proposal to have a council member or mayor serve on the commission has been raised whenever there is a vacancy, but no member has ever expressed an interest in serving, City Manager Jim Starbird said.

Mark R. Madler After a month's delay, the Burbank-Glendale- Pasadena Airport Authority commission released its initial study on potential environmental impacts to future projects at Bob Hope Airport. The study found that proposals to create a taxiway, purchase a plot of land for a parking area for rental and valet cars, and realign the Terminal Loop Roadway intersection would not have a significant impact.

Mark R. Madler After two weeks of delays, the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority will finally release an initial study on environmental impacts of proposed projects at the Bob Hope Airport. When the authority releases the study Monday, the public will have three weeks to comment on it. Howard Rothenbach, a member of Burbank Voters & Taxpayers, a grass-roots group opposing airport expansion, said a delay benefits the group and the message it wants to get out. The longer the process takes, the closer it gets to the February election when three council members are up for reelection.

City loses identity with airport's renaming From the perspective of the city of Glendale, I think that the decision to rename the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport to honor the late Bob Hope was a huge mistake. Don't get me wrong, Bob Hope was a great entertainer and comedian, but when you think about it, he had no connection whatsoever to the cities of Glendale and Pasadena. He didn't have much of a connection to the city of Burbank either, other than the fact that he worked for NBC, which has its studios there, and that he lived in the nearby community of Toluca Lake.

Ryan Carter During World War II, Bob Hope's family frequently watched him leave for his United Service Organization shows from what was then the Lockheed Air Terminal. One time at the Burbank terminal, Hope's son was not even sure whether his father was coming or going, Hope's wife Dolores said. Although Hope died earlier this year, his memory landed for good Wednesday at the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport. About 200 friends, family members and other dignitaries joined airport officials on a sunny morning to christen Bob Hope Airport.

Ryan Carter Renaming the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport for Bob Hope will come at a price, and just who will pick up the estimated $250,000 tab is starting to become clearer. While Hope family representatives pledged that no municipal money will be spent to change the name, the Airport Authority will likely front part or all of the cost, officials said this week.
