Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger was a no-show at a Bob Hope Airport political event Thursday, but the “No on Proposition 23” show went on without him. The event was called to criticize Proposition 23, one of nine statewide measures on the Nov. 2 ballot. It would suspend a landmark California law that sets sustainability benchmarks until one year after the unemployment rate returns to pre-recession averages of 5.5% or less. The unemployment rate in California was 12.4% in August.

BURBANK — Bob Hope Airport got a little “greener” with the unveiling of what is being called the highest-rated sustainable aviation facility in the world. A large crowd, including Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, was invited to Bob Hope Airport for the inauguration Tuesday morning of Hangar 25. “While I may be outside of L.A.’s borders today, today I come as an environmental advocate,” Villaraigosa said. “We know that a clean, healthy environment should know no boundaries.

Ryan Carter In a note to a friend before she died, Evelyn "Bobbi" Trout wrote that 30 days after her passing, her friends and family were to gather in a hangar to celebrate her life -- and keep it light. That's exactly what happened Sunday at Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport as about 200 people, young and old, gathered inside a hollow World War II-era hangar to celebrate the life of Trout, a pioneering aviator who did much of it by the seat of her pants over the skies of Glendale and Burbank.

BURBANK — Attorneys for the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority have filed a default notice against the city of Burbank, alleging that the Planning Board's rejection of a proposed aircraft hanger violated the development agreement between Burbank and the Airport Authority. The Planning Board voted 3-2 in November to uphold an appeal of a project, effectively rejecting a proposal from Avjet Corp., a private airline charter corporation, to construct 70,000 square feet of jet hanger and office space on the grounds that the plans may violate zoning codes.

Irma Lemus BURBANK -- A Burbank man and a female co-worker who died while repairing a blimp in a hangar at the San Bernardino International Airport probably succumbed to asphyxiation, San Bernardino City Fire officials said.

CITY HALL — The City Council on Tuesday overturned a Planning Board decision to halt construction of a jet hangar and office space on a parcel owned by the Burbank-GlendalePasadena Airport Authority. The reversal came after project architects for Avjet, a private airline charter corporation, changed the scope of the project in response to the Planning Board's concerns — specifically, that the project site is in a dual-zoned parcel, where one of the zoning designations prohibits use of the land for general aviation.

The decision by the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority to stick with its current concessionaire, rather than risk having to entertain smaller contracts by opening up a competitive bidding process in a down economy, was the prudent move. If passenger rates are akin to TV viewership in determining vendor rental rates to the airport, much like studios charge for commercial airtime, it would behoove officials to wait until those numbers come back up. The number of passengers handled at Bob Hope Airport hit an eight-year low in 2009, down to 4.6 million travelers.
