Bob Hope Airport is officially in the commemorative brick business. The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority on Monday received a look at www.skiesoffreedom. com, the website launched by the airport to handle orders of the mementos to be included in the airport's transportation center currently under construction. The airport officials hope that former Lockheed employees and other participants in the aviation developments that occurred in Burbank - such as the creation of the P-38 fighter and SR-71 spy plane - will pay to have bricks inscribed with their names, significant dates and, for the larger bricks, illustrations of planes built by Lockheed.

A $450,000 proposal to populate Lincoln Park with three sculptures was rejected by the City Council this week as being too expensive, sending city officials back to drawing board. “I think $450,000 is way too much money,” Mayor Dave Golonski said on Tuesday. He said he'd be more interested in a figure that was half that amount. Golonski was joined by Councilmen David Gordon and Gary Bric in rejecting the proposed sculpture garden, which would have been paid for by tapping a fund that developers pay into as part of a public art fee for new projects in the city.

Dr. David Burbank, a dentist and sheep rancher whose name lives on in the city for which he was named, was recognized Tuesday at Five Points with a statue in his likeness, capping months of anticipation and transforming the busy corner into a grassy lookout. City executives Tuesday dedicated the 12-foot-tall statue along with a time capsule and plaques recognizing Burbank’s sister cities in an upbeat ceremony at 1075 West Burbank Blvd. Children looked on from the shoulders of their parents at the 50-foot-tall pole bearing a flapping American flag as the 2nd Battalion, 23rd Marines presented the colors.

Dimples conditions bad for business I had to laugh when I read some of the original 50 "conditions" that the Burbank Planning Board required of karaoke bar Dimples' new location ("Owner not all smiles over Dimples move," March 23). One of the conditions was limiting the number of people waiting in line outside to 10. Hey, if the Planning Board doesn't have anything better to do, how about visiting my local Bank of America and implementing the same "under 10 in line" rule?
