Bob Hope Airport officials approved additional parking rate increases this week to tackle steady revenue drops caused by declining passenger activity that's expected to be exacerbated by JetBlue's decision to eliminate all daytime flights at the airfield as of Jan. 6. The decision will eliminate one daily flight to JFK International Airport in New York City and another to Las Vegas. JetBlue's evening service to JFK will continue. A spokeswoman for the airline, Tamara Young, said in a statement that customer demand is “the ultimate factor in determining a route or flight schedule.” And despite cutbacks in Burbank, JetBlue's overall network continues to expand, Young said.

Lemonade, a popular cafeteria-style restaurant with 13 locations in Southern California, is slated to open in Burbank's media district after the Planning Board approved its proposal Tuesday despite some concerns about inadequate parking from some local residents. The restaurant will take over part of a building located at 4400 Riverside Drive, currently occupied by beauty-supply store Cinema Secrets.  Property owner Jeff Fischer billed the project as a way to revive the struggling existing store, which likely wouldn't have been able to afford a rent increase that would have come with continuing to occupy the whole property on its own.  The project was approved in a 3-1 vote, with board member Christopher Rizzotti being the sole dissenter.

A New York Times columnist is wondering: Where is the love? Nicholas D. Kristoff says there's a “profound lack of empathy” these days, after columns he wrote about food stamp recipients, prison inmates and those without health insurance drew scornful responses from readers. After acknowledging that some people end up in jail or poverty because of their own bad decisions, he asks: “Do we really think that kids should go hungry if they have criminal parents? Should a little boy not get a curved spine treated properly because his dad is a deadbeat?

With the opening of the boys' basketball season less than two months away, administrators at Providence High didn't want to waste time finding a new coach. Less than three weeks after Earnest Baskerville resigned to take the head coaching job at La Salle, the school made it official Tuesday that it has hired former St. John Bosco Coach Chris Madigan to take over the Pioneers program. "The key for us, instead of the timing, was the quality of the person we wanted to get for the job," Providence Athletic Director Andrew Bencze said.

The city received nearly $20,500 in curbside recycling revenues from the state last fiscal year, according to a statement released Tuesday by the city. It will not receive any additional funds until a new operator is certified by the state and a new curbside application is approved. The California Department of Resources, Recycling and Recovery - known as CalRecycle - denied Burbank's application in January, but the city appealed.
