Despite the rising cost of gasoline and the tragedy in the Gulf states, travelers aren't allowing their holiday plans to be swayed. Officials at the Bob Hope Airport are expecting this Labor Day weekend to be one of the busiest ever, reflecting on what has already been a busy summer season, airport spokesman Victor Gill said. "It's probably going to be busier [this weekend] in the sense that this year we've experienced a busier summer than any other year," he said.

Ryan Carter An orange alert, long lines, long waits and fear will not stop April Sullivan from getting to Arizona this holiday season. She's getting married Friday. "If there are any terrorists on my plane, I will be very [ticked]," she said as she waited for her Southwest Airlines flight to Phoenix on Tuesday in the terminal at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank. Sullivan and many travelers took to the skies this week despite security concerns. "That freaked me out a bit," Sullivan said of the code orange alert issued Sunday by the federal government, warning of a heightened terrorist threat.

Travelers departing Bob Hope Airport Tuesday expressed little concern about heightened Transportation Security Administration measures as they departed just before the busiest travel day of the year. “Nope. They are keeping me safe,” Ellen Cowie of Tujunga said as she walked toward TSA officials at Terminal A. “I’ve been scanned before, and it did not bother me one bit.” Some passengers were asked to step aside for a manual pat down, the most controversial of the measures that TSA instituted Nov. 1. But the airport does not have a full-body scanner, airport spokesman Victor Gill said.

Darleene Barrientos Ten days in Israel were a whirlwind of fellowship, spiritual renewal and political education for 18 members of the Temple Sinai of Glendale's congregation. The 18 travelers, including three teenage girls and a teenage boy, returned to Glendale a week ago, talking enthusiastically about their pilgrimage to Israel and how it enlightened and renewed them. Rabbi Jonathan Biatch introduced the idea for the trip in 2002 at a temple group meeting.

Gretchen Hoffman They cruise older residential areas in construction trucks and SUVs, eyes peeled for senior citizens watering flowers or picking up a newspaper. Their spiel is predictable, like the two men who told an 88-year-old woman June 6 that they needed to repair a mistake their cousin made while fixing her roof in the 1200 block of East Acacia Avenue. They asked if two women and two children waiting in the van could use her bathroom and she welcomed them inside, but while she showed one of the "repairmen" the roof, they stole $1,400 in cash and $1,300 in jewelry.

BURBANK — Professional travelers know to avoid airports, bus stations, train stations or freeways during Thanksgiving. Planes, trains or automobiles, it’s bedlam. But not this year. While Thanksgiving travel was expected to be up across the nation from last year, travelers arriving at Bob Hope Airport said their holiday jaunts were easy, security lines no problem, and congestion on the runways obsolete. “This was one of the easiest trips ever,” said Burbank resident Jeremy Guskin.

Tim Willert Travelers catching flights at Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport on Tuesday were hardly inconvenienced by a new federal directive to screen all checked luggage. Brent and Sandie Monahan and their three children waited just five minutes while federal employees screened their bags before catching an Alaska Airlines flight back home to Silverlake, Wash. "There's no more delay than normal," Monahan said. "It seems to be going smoother than last year."

Tightened security didn't keep a delegation of Las Vegas showgirls, circus performers and comedian Carrot Top from landing at the Million Air Terminal at the Bob Hope Airport on Thursday. "The biggest day of airport security this year and this is what gets to come through!" quipped the comedian, escorted by four sequined, bikini-clad dancers and two masked acrobats turning summersaults on the tarmac. The display of glitz ushered in a first-of-its-kind concierge station, where Las Vegas-bound travelers can make restaurant reservations, book show tickets and schedule other activities before they leave the airport, said Howard Lefkowitz, president of Vegas.

BURBANK ? Bob Hope Airport travelers in need of a cellphone battery boost will soon have an easy option. The airport has approved a contract with Minnesota-based Smarte Carte Inc., to install cellphone chargers in the terminals in the next few weeks, airport spokesman Victor Gill said. The Charge Carte service will allow travelers to charge their cellphones in 30 minutes for a $3 fee, said Tammi Phippen, marketing manager for Smarte Carte. A completely dead phone would be about half-charged in that 30 minutes, she said.

During the past 12 years, Glendale teachers have taken advantage of $4 million in grant funds to travel across the country to cities, museums and historical institutions to immerse themselves in stories of the past. But that appears to be coming to an end. Their excursions were made possible by four $1-million grants that Glendale Unified has received since 2001 under the federal Teaching American History grant program. But earlier this month, as 30 teachers traveled to the San Francisco Bay Area to study California history, their trip also signified the last grant-sponsored excursion for Glendale teachers, as the U.S. Department of Education has decided to forgo renewing the grant.

A mountain lion was spotted strolling near a northwest hillside neighborhood in Glendale Thursday night, police said. A resident saw the lion at about 11 p.m. moving north on Larco Way, where it briefly stopped to stare at him and then meandered away, according to Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz. Animal control officers with the Pasadena Humane Society, which serves Glendale, were notified about the sighting and will be distributing fliers in the neighborhood, advising residents what to do if they see a mountain lion, said spokeswoman Ricky Whitman.

Forty-three orphans in Kenya who used to walk an hour to and from school each day now complete the journey in half the time thanks to bikes they received with financial help from Glendale teen Sebouh Bazikian. For about a year, Bazikian worked to raise about $5,000 to purchase 43 bikes through the organization World Bike Relief, which delivered the bikes in August to the children at the Machao Orphanage in Makueni County, located about 115 miles from the country's capital of Nairobi.

Each year, Antonio Harrison likes to schedule a game that requires an overnight stay for the Flintridge Prep football team. The Rebels coach may have outdone himself this year. Harrison's squad will play seven road games - with one listed as a home game - this coming season. When Flintridge Prep devised its 2012 schedule, it signed one-year contracts, instead of the usual multi-year deals, which has led to a drastically different nonleague schedule for 2013. "When we went through our struggles a couple years ago, we didn't want to lock teams into two years because we weren't sure what was going to happen with the football program, honestly," said Harrison - referring to the Rebels 1-9 season that was marred by two forfeits when a thin roster was decimated by injures in 2011.

It took more than three hours for the Flintridge Prep baseball team to make the trip to Lake Isabella for a CIF Southern Section Division VI second-round playoff contest against Kern Valley on Tuesday. Karlsen Termini felt sluggish following the long journey and struggled on the mound in the first inning, walking the first three batters he faced before being replaced by Clayton Weirick. Weirick limited the damage and then finished up strong and Termini contributed three hits and four runs batted in to pace fourth-seeded Flintridge Prep to a 6-3 victory.

In reaching the CIF Southern Section Division I-A semifinal game for the second straight season, Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball Coach Shawn Zargarian reflected on his team's latest accomplishment. Having lost 80% of last season's starting lineup, it appeared to be a tall order for the Falcons to make another deep playoff run. “I was telling the players that I couldn't be more proud in terms of how far they have come,” Zargarian said. “We lost a lot of solid players, but there's just something special about this team and what they've been able to get done this year.
