Kim BURBANK -- Burbank's mail-in election for the Restore Our Airport Rights initiative might still be more than three months away, but city officials and initiative authors already are clashing over statements that will appear on the ballot. "I was just really angry," Councilwoman Stacey Murphy said about an argument written by ROAR supporters. "They obviously didn't care about representing the facts in the argument.

Thus, to keep tears from running down this chubby face, here is one final, feeble attempt at writing more about high school football.

Recently, on one of the baseball blogs my husband reads, the blogger veered from the topic of sports to talk about the common misuse of the expression ?to beg the question.? The blog post included a link to a column, written by someone else, on the ?beg the question? question. My husband thought it was a good column topic for me. But, hating to feel like I?m jumping someone else?s train, I wasn?t too keen on the idea.

Having watched the most offensive Burbank City Council session in my memory, I was appalled by the baldfaced hypocrisy and political machinations on display for all to see. Completely aside from the merits or drawbacks of their cause, the proponents of Measure A have much to answer for. To begin with a moment of irony, how many people appeared at the Sept. 18 session having been requested or recruited by supporters of Measure A? How many of those same supporters dismissed with scorn the appearance of Mr. Larry Stamper and his flock to protest their own abuses of oral communications?

Re: “ Israel is the Jewish homeland,” Mailbag, Jan. 18 . After about 3,000 years of persecution, and the horrible travails of the Holocaust, I absolutely support the existence of the state of Israel. However, religious extremists on all sides of the conflict continue to sow hatred in the “Holy Land.” Encouraged by extreme fundamentalist Christians who just can't wait for Armageddon, Jewish ultra-orthodox, illegal settlers square off with militant fundamentalist Muslims in a violent battle over whose god is better.

A group of Burbank residents is protesting the planned closure of the Glenoaks post office, which postal officials said would save the cash-strapped agency $740,270 over the next decade. However, one postal official said this week that the decision to close the station should stand. Nine Burbank residents filed separate appeals against the U.S. Postal Service's decision in June to close the Glenoaks branch and reassign its two employees, citing the inconvenience of “slow and tedious” lines and lack of parking at nearby alternatives.

In written arguments to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, both sides in the gay marriage legal  dispute debated whether the sexual orientation of retired Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn R. Walker  might have affected the case.

A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge dismissed a case that could have required more hoops for a planned 24 Hour Fitness on West Empire Avenue. Burbank Athletic Club owner Greg Bedrossian and longtime city critic Mike Nolan sued in late June to block the city from allowing the 24 Hour Fitness Super Sport. They argued that the city failed to comply with its own review procedures and ignored potential parking problems related to the proposed gym. But Superior Court Judge Ann Jones dismissed those claims, finding that the pair's argument "grossly mischaracterizes the actual findings in the case.
