Karen S. Kim BURBANK -- With a unanimous 8-0 vote Tuesday morning, the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority decided to come to Burbank's negotiating table armed with a list of 10 principles for discussion. But Burbank officials aren't jumping for joy just yet. "Looking at their 10 principles, there are still some significant issues that separate us," Burbank City Manager Bud Ovrom said. "But we're upbeat about it because at least they responded."

Our charter authorizes money transfers to the general reserve fund from the GWP surplus fund, using surplus monies leftover after all GWP needs and obligations are met. In conflict with the charter, Glendale annually transfers $21 million even without a surplus. Indeed, we're told GWP must defer critically needed capital improvements because without rate increases, there's no money for them. Ballot Measure B legalizes this practice under the guise of merely streamlining for greater accord with accounting principles.

After starting my business in my home in La Cañada in 1980, I later moved to my studio in Pasadena where I work with adults, corporations, and children as an etiquette and image consultant.La Cañada is dear to my heart as are my clients who helped me to start my business. In appreciation, I write this column. Because "Civility" is becoming an increasingly important topic in our society, I will be sharing "Etiquette Tips" with you in my column. Often etiquette is thought of as something snobbish and only for high society.

I always look forward to reading Will Rogers' column. I especially value the items from previous years he supplies about current topics. His content and style are outstanding. I have read letters on this Community Forum page from people giving him high praise, and from people who would be much happier if this newspaper did not print the information he provides. I can't recall anyone giving examples of inaccurate facts in his column or complaining that he's boring.

Dear Friends, Etiquette is about principles and customs handed down through generations based on kindness and consideration toward others. I enjoy sharing these principles with you. The New Year of 2007 is quickly approaching. Some important words to remember are those of Ronald Reagan. When he said, "We are one nation under God. When we forget this, we are one nation gone under." I would like to share a prayer for 2007 and an adaptation of a poem by Helen Steiner Rice: God grant us that this year we will have a wider view so that we can see others' faults through the eyes of You. Teach us not to judge the adult nor the young with a hasty tongue.

Will Rogers I admit that I recently sat out the raging controversy over the city's practice of lowering the flag to commemorate victims of the Armenian Genocide. I feel obliged to explain why I didn't respond to the request of a great many readers to support their respective positions on the debate. Part of my staying out of the fray was a practical consideration. There has been no shortage of opinions on either side of the issue. I couldn't very well argue that I needed to call attention to an issue that was otherwise being overlooked.

Fortunately, we're not a 'mob rule' democracy Recently, two of your readers demonstrated the usual ignorance regarding the issue of a governmental agency supporting religion through government officials leading prayers in public meetings. Ms. Yukl, a supporter of state-led prayer, justifies that support by reminding us Christians are in the majority, and "In a democracy we have majority rule ..." We shouldn't forget that the National Socialists (Nazis)

Independence Day seems a fitting time to take stock of how we’re doing as a nation. It’s hard not to wonder what would have happened if the cast of characters we have sent to Washington to lead us today had been present in Philadelphia in July of 1776. Surely, they never would have agreed on the language of the Declaration of Independence and America never would have been born. They would still be arguing about which truths were self-evident, whether the unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness included abortion rights or gay marriage rights, and whether the 27 enumerated charges against the King of England should be expanded to include his failure to provide universal health care.

Jerry Buchanan remembers tutoring a 9-year-old girl who couldn’t read through School on Wheels, a program that offers one-on-one tutoring to homeless children. Every time they would meet, Buchanan would help the girl sound out a word syllable by syllable, reading words along with her. “I discovered some time ago that I had patience with dealing with kids,” said Buchanan, explaining why he enjoys tutoring children. Buchanan’s hard work paid off by the end of the summer.

What are the guiding principles that make a school successful and its students proficient, skilled and high-achieving? Why are some schools successful while others wallow and stagger in a quagmire of ineptitude and failure? These are questions that academics, parents, legislators and school board members and their administrators often ask as they either congratulate or question the success or failure of a school. Public schools are judged on their students' performance on standardized tests.
