City should take airport’s suggestion

Last week at the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport, the Airport

Authority voted unanimously to send a letter to the Burbank City

Council requesting that a citizen be invited to a meeting the city

of Burbank is attempting to schedule with the FAA in Washington.

I read the following letter to the Airport Authority:

“Today, I’m here as a member of the Burbank community to request

the Airport Authority support sending a delegate, selected by ROAR,

to the upcoming meeting with the FAA. This is a serious request and

the community will pay our delegate’s expenses.

“Burbank voters have passed two initiatives to control airport

growth. ROAR brought the community Measure A, which received more

than 11,000 votes.

“Clearly, it was the intent of the voters to take the power away

from our elected officials because we don’t trust their decisions and

goals for an expanded airport terminal.

“We believe our elected officials have repeatedly taken steps that

demonstrate their goals do not represent the majority of Burbank

voters.

“Therefore, we want the Airport Authority to support ROAR

selecting and sending a member of the community to be included in

meetings with the FAA along with representatives from the city

councils of Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena and the Airport Authority.

We ask that you take the appropriate action to support our request.”

Shortly after this letter was read to the Authority, the Airport

Authority voted unanimously to recommend a delegate be invited to

Washington. I sincerely hope that the Burbank City Council does the

right thing and honors the request of the Airport Authority, and the

will of the citizenry of Burbank.

Family gives thanks for research donations

On Dec. 21, we held a memorial in Burbank for our daughter,

Katherine Josephine “K.J.” Segall-Coady, who passed away the

preceding Monday. In lieu of flowers, she had requested donations to

the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Almost $700 was bestowed -- so much of it in cash.

Consequently, we are unable to acknowledge those of K.J.'s friends

who provided, and hope they will see this letter as our thanks for

their generosity.
