A charge of violating a state law on possession of medical marijuana was dropped Thursday against an advocate who helped get the law passed. The Burbank City Attorney's office dismissed a citation against Valerie Corral for allegedly not having proper identification that allowed her to carry marijuana under the state's Compassionate Use Act. Corral, of Santa Cruz, was cited July 27 when she was found with 5 grams of marijuana at Bob Hope Airport. A conviction on the citation carried a penalty of a $100 fine, the state's lowest misdemeanor, Alvarez said.

A lawsuit challenging the city's hiring of an out-of-state lawyer to deal with litigation involving Bob Hope Airport was dismissed Wednesday after city officials refused to produce a contract between the city and the attorney, citing attorney-client privilege. Burbank resident Mike Nolan, who challenged the city's use of Denver-based attorney Peter Kirsch on airport matters, was placed in an unwinnable position by having to present the contract on what was supposed to be the first day of trial Wednesday in the case before Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William F. Fahey, said Nolan's attorney, Michael Bergfeld.

A 20-gallon drum of butane cigarette lighters exploded at the Bob Hope Airport Wednesday injuring a federal security employee. The minor explosion closed a hallway of the terminal for about 10 minutes, and did not result in any air traffic delays, airport officials said. The container burst at 10:15 a.m. in an administrative office in the hallway connecting the two airport terminals, Bob Hope Airport spokesman Victor Gill said. An Transportation Security Administration employee was moving a 20-gallon plastic drum filled with cigarette lighters collected from passengers when the container dropped, causing a small explosion inside the drum, popping the lid off the container, Gill said.

Bob Hope Airport officials are hoping for a November completion date for a third security check lane at one of the airport's terminals. The third lane would offer a swifter security process during peak periods of travel. "We are aware there can be long lines during the early morning hours with the first wave of flights out," airport spokesman Victor Gill said. The Burbank-GlendalePasadena Airport Authority on Sept. 26 authorized that up to $250,000 be spent to prepare the space to be used by the Transportation Security Agency.

Bids for a new valet and self-park parking lot at Bob Hope Airport came in at double what the airport authority has budgeted for the project, sending officials back to the drawing board. The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority on Monday approved redesigning its plans for the 27-acre Star Park property and will put the project back out to bid in early 2006. The airport budgeted $13 million to improve the site but bids for the work came back in at $26 million.

After 15 years in Burbank I'll be moving out the end of September and not because I don't love Burbank. o7Au' contrairef7; Burbank is a wonderful place to live, except for the scandalous politics here. I was very politically active for a long time having attended 100 or more City Council and Planning Commission meetings. I was even considered for airport commissioner more than once. One thing I learned from my experience was the Burbank City Council, Planning Commission and City Manager were all too often unresponsive to the will of the people.

Standing aboard a Segway Human Transporter outside the main terminal at Bob Hope Airport, Officer Randy Law at times draws bewildered looks from the passengers he stands 8 inches above. "They definitely like it, or at least are intrigued by it," said Law, who has been with the airport police for six months. Law's Segway -- a two-wheeled, battery-operated personal transportation vehicle that is operated in an upright position -- is one of three in use since last week to make it easier to patrol the terminal and airport area.

The deafening roar of airplanes taking off from the Bob Hope Airport will no longer interrupt students and teachers during class in Luther Burbank Middle School. The school board on Thursday approved the final payment of $5,000 to Ove Arup & Partners California LTD for its acoustic services at Luther Burbank Middle School, which is located just over a mile away from the airport. Noise abatement modifications to the building were completed in August as part of Burbank Unified School District's modernization of the school.
