Because they write well and love a certain airport, five Burbank area high school students, winners of an essay contest, will be flying to Seattle Saturday morning. "The really gratifying thing to me was the mix of essays," said Linda Walmsley, a kindergarten and first-grade teacher at Miller Elementary School who came up with the idea for the essay contest last year. Last year the contest, sponsored by the Friends of the Burbank Airport, sent five 9-year-olds on a day trip to Oakland.

A failed braking system apparently caused two tires to blow out on a Northwest Airlines jetliner after it landed at John Wayne Airport on Tuesday morning, creating a loud explosion but causing no injuries among the 41 passengers and crew members aboard. The noise of the blowouts on the Airbus A-320 traveled far and, at first, sounded like an engine exploding, said Orange County Fire Department Capt.

Noise No Justification for Impasse? Baloney! It is clear that Joyce Streator does not live in Burbank Airport's flight path. Her article, "Noise No Justification for Impasse" (Nov. 29), demonstrates the lack of awareness many expansion proponents have for the plight of people living under the airport's onus of noise. I'm sorry Streator doesn't see the light concerning a mandatory curfew. If a jet thundering overhead at midnight awakened her, maybe she would be more understanding.
The Unabomber scare at Los Angeles International Airport prompted only a modest number of flight re-bookings Wednesday, but travel industry officials expect that number to increase as the busy Fourth of July holiday approaches. "Every hour brings more activity," said Thom Nulty, president of Associated Travel in Santa Ana. "We're seeing a lot of customers with concern. We've had quite a few fly to an alternate airport, but we've also had people say, the heck with it, and fly into LAX."

When California was Mexican, its citizens were called Californios. That term seems to have died with the end of Mexican rule. We are Californians now. Its disappearance brings into question the rule, if any, by which nouns and adjectives pertaining to the various United States are formed. Why is the basic noun used invariably as an adjective--California poppy, California sunset, California bathing beauty, and so on? Yet we residents are called by the adjectival form--Californians.

Call it television's dominant and recessive voices; call it the medium's superego and its id. (Hell, call it Heckle and Jeckle for all I care.) In its normal voice, TV is unfailingly polite to its audience, which makes a lot of sense considering that the audience is what TV sells to its sponsors and is therefore TV's real product. Yet every so often there is that other voice, that other persona, the one that rivets us, startles us, commands our attention precisely because it is not so nice.

Because speedskater Eric Heiden shaved maybe once a month, by his own count, the endorsement deal with Gillette didn't make sense. So he passed. And he passed on countless other offers too, more intent on camping and returning to school, riding his bike instead of riding five gold medals to his own personal mint. Even in 1980, before celebrity was as ephemeral as an eye blink, Heiden went from Lake Placid to the raging waters of notoriety thanks to the hardware around his neck. "Back then, you had really no chance of being a professional athlete and a very small chance of using your Olympic career to gain financial success, so it was never really something that was part of the equation when I was competing," said Heiden, who is now team doctor for U.S. Speedskating.
Pastor Dan Green's voice is nearly hoarse from offering prayers and soothing words that he admits provide no spiritual clues as to why a plane of vacationing families splintered to bits, killing all 88 people on board. He has no answers for crews who spent 25 hours pulling human remains and wreckage from the water. Only comfort.
