Airport foe returns – as a candidate

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake The city could still force the airport to sell the land in 10 years. But Gordon and other critics said the city gave away the upper hand in the deal. “I have no problem with modernizing the existing terminal. I think the airport provides very important benefits to the community as it is,” Gordon said. “But I am opposed to any relocation or expansion of the airport.” Gordon also opposes what he refers to as the “Los Angelization” of Burbank, or the tendency for the city to allow high-density condos and office buildings to go up without adequate parking and other controls. He also cites the increased traffic related to development. Howard Rothenbach, chairman of Restore Our Airport Rights, said Gordon has ideas to keep the city from becoming too built up. “He is more in touch with what residents and small business people would want in the community,” Rothenbach said. “And he’s independent.” Alex Dobuzinskis, (818) 546-3304 BURBANK – After criticizing Burbank’s deal with the Bob Hope Airport over development there, David Gordon is making his first run for City Council on a pledge to stop airport expansion and prevent the “Los Angelization” of Burbank. An optometrist and a 22-year resident of the city, Gordon was a member of the Burbank Planning Board from 1995-99. He contends the public has not been given enough chances to weigh in when developments could affect their neighborhoods. “The heart of my campaign is to put people first, and people can’t be put first if they’re excluded from the process,” he said. In the run-up to the council’s approval of an agreement with the airport on development, Gordon, 50, criticized the pact at public meetings. At one point, the optometrist accused city officials of being myopic for leaning toward the deal, which blocks the building of a new terminal for 10 years but allows the airport to keep 60 acres that could eventually be used to build a terminal. last_img read more

Jared Goff’s success no surprise to his closest friends

Soybean quality issues showing up Between the Rows

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Glenn Harsh, Delaware Co.The rain slowed us up a little bit but we had projects to catch up on anyway so it has been a little bit of a relief. We are coming along with beans and they are running through nicely after the problems we saw with the insect damage in that first field. It was an early field and I think it was a timing thing with the insects. We had some damage from stink bugs and we also had some damage from the bean leaf beetle, which causes Phomopsis.We have combined some corn and got a good start on one farm. It is doing very well yield wise and quality is good. It is drying down fast. The corn we are in is right about 21% and it is full season corn, but it was planted early. The first field we were in had some gravel knolls and the stalk quality was deteriorating quickly. The gravel knolls were right at 140 and there were spots around 220 bushels in the good ground. The next field of corn is more even and doing very well. Some of the things we did to push yield look like they are working in that field.The other fields I have checked are standing pretty well. You don’t have to go too far, though, where stalk issues are becoming a problem. Corn wise I have not seen quality issues and I have checked quite a few fields.There are some beans in really black soil that are really leaning to maybe down on the ground, but we can still get underneath them. You don’t like to see that because we are losing some bushels there. That will be a challenge with some of these fields planted at too high of a population.With the beans, the first field was around 50 to 55 and the next fields have been doing quite a bit better than that. I feel good about harvest. We just have to keep the combine rolling.For the rest of this week’s reports, click here.last_img read more

Irving doesn’t mention LeBron in his goodbye to Cleveland

first_imgLATEST STORIES Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH “You understand the magnitude of decisions that you make in your life can affect a lot of people all at once,” Irving said in the more than 4-minute video . “And when you get to that point and you understand that the best intentions for you and ultimately to be in your truth, and find out what you really want to do in your life and how you want to accomplish it — that moment comes and you take full advantage of it.“And there are no other ulterior reasons other than being happy and to be somewhere you feel like it’s an environment that’s conducive for you maximizing your potential.”Irving apparently felt it was time to get out from under the colossal shadow cast by James. The pair won an NBA title together — the first for any Cleveland team since 1964 — in 2016, but Irving did not single out James in his video or the accompanying note.When the Cavs first announced Irving’s trade on Aug. 22, James offered praise to his younger teammate on Twitter , saying: “Special talent/guy! Nothing but respect and what a ride it was our 3 years together.”Irving’s comments were his first since the trade. He was sent to the Celtics for All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and the 2018 first-round pick Boston acquired from Brooklyn.ADVERTISEMENT Arellano’s Lervin Flores crowned new NCAA slam dunk king SEA Games in Calabarzon safe, secure – Solcom chief In a meeting last month with Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert, Irving said he wanted out.

After the Cavs were beaten by Golden State in this year’s Finals, Irving spoke at length about what it meant to play with James and how much he had learned.But as he closed his video, Irving didn’t acknowledge their relationship.“And to my teammates: crazy stories, crazy experiences and just unbelievable human beings, man,” Irving said. “You all know how this brotherhood goes, man.
