No Keeping Quiet About Airport Noise

May 23, 1993| Laura Chick, a former member of Picus' staff, is opposing her in the runoff in City Council District 3.

* There is no middle ground to the Burbank Airport issue. One is either heartily for the expansion or totally against it. The main issue is noise, noise, noise , and jobs have no relation to the noise problem. The "Airport Uber Alles" people either ignore the noise issue or downplay it.

James Foy is concerned with the Los Angeles Unified School District's spending money on a lawsuit against the airport. Has he considered the depth of frustration which pushed the school district into litigation--how distracting and disruptive and just plain difficult it is to teach between airplane roars?

Les Benson says automobiles and motorcycles create more noise problems than Burbank Airport ever will. Well, sure autos and cycles make noise, but they keep their distance from my home and don't roar relentlessly over my house and garden.

Benson seems most distraught about the idea of no Burbank Airport in the Valley. I become absolutely lyrical at that thought. Peace and quiet once more!
