AIRPORT DISTRICT — Passengers won’t have to scramble for credit cards to connect with work, family or friends at Bob Hope Airport, where Google this week announced plans to offer free wireless Internet service as a holiday gift to travelers. The nationwide endowment is part of an effort to guide more people to the Web in the busiest time of year for airports, and comes after Google announced promotions with several carriers to provide similar services, Google spokesman Andrew Pederson said.

Dear google: Congrat- ulations on your recent admission to the exclusive club of verbs that used to be just nouns. With Merriam-Webster's recent decision to include you in its collegiate dictionary, you join the ranks of more recently minted verbs like "gift," "shelf," "trash," "leverage," "pepper" and "party." The quick turnaround time for your application ? just five years ? indeed reflects the high esteem in which English speakers hold you, not to mention your potential as a lasting force in and influence on the language.

Fortune has come out with its list of the "100 Best Companies to Work For," and California-based firms claim six out of the top 20 spots, including No. 1, Google . Notably, one of the reasons Google made it into the top spot was because "everything was up at Google last year," including revenue, profits and hiring, the magazine said. Still, revenue reportedly was lower than expected in the fourth quarter, and on Thursday Google's stock fell nearly 60 points in after-hours trading.

I am so disappointed and disgusted with the entire Glendale City Council for not removing Zareh Sinanyan from his commission. I watched the hearing on cable. Sinanyan did not deny posting the vile comments online. He would not release his Google account records, which one would think someone who claims he was hacked would certainly do. And finally, Sinanyan did not say that he had filed a police report. Guess why? Police reports are filed under penalty of perjury. I am not buying Sinanyan's story.

Fire crews from Burbank and Glendale were called Thursday to help battle a raging 2,000-acre brush fire in Ventura County. The Burbank Fire Department sent 13 fire personnel - including a battalion chief - as well as three engines to respond to the fire, said Burbank Fire Capt. Peter Hendrickson.  Two of the engines are protecting homes on Borchard Road and Via Las Brisas in Thousand Oaks, while the third is stationed at the command post, Hendrickson said. “The state of California set this thing up where we respond and take care of each other,” Hendrickson said.

Glendale City Council candidate Edith Fuentes said she missed a recent candidate forum and a few key endorsement meetings because she traveled to the Philippines to care for her mother, who had suffered a stroke. During the visit, her mother, 93, died. Fuentes said her mother's death has emboldened her run for office, squashing rumors that she was out of the race. Fuentes' mother had encouraged her to run in the first place. “As soon as I landed [back in California], I texted and emailed everyone that I landed and I'm running,” she said, adding that her supporters continued to canvass the city in her absence.

Police officials have notified the California Department of Fish and Wildlife of a “fairly-large” mountain lion that is wandering inside the yard of a La Crescenta home. The lion, which was spotted just before 2 p.m., doesn't appear to be disturbing anything at the home in the 4500 block of New York Avenue, according to Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz. While no one was inside the home, Lorenz said police are trying to maintain a calm environment for the lion so it does not become agitated.

Stop me if you've heard this one before: A couple of outcasts find themselves in a rigid social environment, surrounded by winners who sneer at them as losers. Most of these "losers" have given up even trying. Luckily, within their number there are a few "leaders" who teach the others that accepting the values of their tormentors, struggling to emulate them, is a futile strategy. It's better to upend the social order by showing the usefulness or moral/ethical superiority of their timid "loser" ways.

For Brenna Pratt, a freshman at Crescenta Valley High School, the best parts of a new 2-mile trail are the multiple switchbacks leading up the side of the San Rafael Hills. "I think they're really fun," said the 14-year-old before she and nearly two dozen students on the high school's cycling team climbed once again up the Catalina Verdugo Trail, which officially opened Saturday morning with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. In addition to the Catalina Verdugo Trail, city officials also cut the ribbon for a less-strenuous, .75-mile handicap accessible trail made of decomposed granite.

People driving or walking around Brand Boulevard and Broadway in downtown Glendale are seeing something unusual - a giant green cube on the southwest corner of the intersection. The exterior of the building where a Bloomingdale's store is being built is covered with a green mesh fabric to prevent dust and debris from leaving the construction area and falling onto pedestrians and passing vehicles, according to Shoshana Puccia, senior marketing manager for the Galleria. The department store, which is slated for an autumn opening, is moving into the Galleria in the former Mervyn's site.

Glendale-based Nestlé USA is voluntarily recalling four types of frozen pizzas sold under the California Pizza Kitchen and DiGiorno brands, the company announced Thursday. The pizzas are being recalled because of the chance that they may contain small fragments of clear plastic, which was reported by a small number of consumers who had purchased the CPK Crispy Thin Crust White Pizza. An internal investigation indicated the cause was directly related to a particular order of spinach received from a supplier, which was also used on the other three varieties of pizza recalled.

A planned fare hike for the Glendale Beeline bus service has been canceled due to increased available funding stemming from early retirements at City Hall and a series of Los Angeles County sales tax hikes. The City Council this week approved nixing the increase from $1 to $1.25 that was scheduled to take place July 1. The current $1 fare, up from 75 cents in July 2012, will remain in place. Up until October 2011, the fare had been 25 cents. City officials may still review upping the fare at future budget meetings.
