Southwest Airlines, which accounts for two-thirds of passenger traffic at Bob Hope Airport, will phase out 12% of its weekly flights by September, airport officials said. The carrier?s decision to trim 82 flights from its weekly schedule is expected to further decrease already-declining passenger numbers at the commuter hub. The drop from 712 to 630 weekly flights will mean a 6% reduction in the total weekly flights leaving the airport. The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority last week presented the proposal to airport commissioners.

It had been a long day. I flew to Phoenix on the early flight, attended a deposition, then boarded the evening flight back to the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank. I put my folio under the seat and opened my new book. I was reading "Sabbath," by Abraham Joshua Heschel. I barely looked up when the young lady stopped at my row. She appeared to be in her twenties, slightly older than our daughter. What caught my eye were the three strands of diamonds. When she stretched to put her bag in the overhead, her T-shirt rode up, exposing thin chains hooked to her belly-button.

Two local city council members from La Cañada and Glendale are campaigning for appointment to the Metropolitan Transit Agency board, representing the San Fernando Valley and the North County. The seat is opening up because of the retirement of Lancaster Mayor Frank Roberts, who is not seeking re-election to his city council. MTA board members must be elected officials. Seeking the post are La Cañada Flintridge Councilman Dave Spence and Glendale Councilman Ara Najarian. Spence said he has 10 or 12 issues he wants to pursue on the board, and one of them is the so-called "missing link" for local transit.

Airport security tightened in Burbank and long-held emotions were cut loose in Glendale as news surfaced Sunday that U.S. Navy Special Forces had killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. “It was the first time I cried in a long time, since we buried my brother,” said Brandon Valvo of Glendale, whose brother Carlton Valvo II, a graduate of the St. Francis High School in La Cañada Flintridge, died at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Valvo, who also attended Flintridge Prep before graduating from St. Francis in 1981, was killed while at work on the 105th floor of the north tower.

Local lawmakers want to see voters approve Measure J on Nov. 6 and commit more funds for regional transportation projects, but they are making sure transportation officials know they don't want money to flow toward a proposed extension of the Long Beach (710) Freeway. In recent weeks La Cañada Flintridge, South Pasadena and Glendale have passed resolutions supporting Measure J, a Los Angeles County proposition that would extend until 2069 an existing half-cent increase in the county sales tax to pay for transit projects and roadwork.

Four La Cañada Flintridge residents completed the Boston Marathon on Monday before two deadly bombs exploded near the finish area. One of them was 26-year-old Maryann Boosalis, who completed the 26.2-mile event roughly 45 minutes before the first explosion hit near the Boylston Street finish line. By that time, she was already in her hotel room with her mother. “I had no idea that anything happened until I saw the breaking news on TV,” she said. “It's scary and sad at the same time.” The explosions started at 2:42 p.m. local time, about two hours after the first runners had crossed the finish line.

I always get busted at the airport. I am security's answer to the anti-profile: Not young, male, dark, possibly of Middle-Eastern descent, possibly scowling (or smiling, thinking about all those nubile virgins waiting for me in heaven if I succeed in a pyrotechnic's wet dream). So I get pulled aside, and being pro heightened airport security, it's a grateful nuisance. Who knows? I could be the one very, very cross PTA mommy. The first time I was pulled over by security many years ago, my husband and I were homeward bound from Rome, Italy.

The rain of last weekend and cool temperatures may fit well with the holiday season in La Cañada. But be warned, the wet stuff did not bring Southern California out of its ongoing dry spell in a meaningful way, according to the experts. “Right now we have had a little storm and we will be at normal [rainfall for the season]. That’s the good news,” said Bill Patzert, climatologist and oceanographer from Jet Propulsion Laboratory. “But normal doesn’t cut it in terms of the drought.
