Irma Lemus MEDIA DISTRICT NORTH -- La Chee Singleton wants to be a track star, and wasn't about to let a little rain and cold weather get in her way. La Chee, 10, a fifth-grader at George Washington Elementary, and two of her classmates were among the thousands of people who finished all 26.2 miles of the Los Angeles Marathon Sunday. The runners and walkers braved wet and cold conditions more suitable for marathon book-and-cocoa sessions by the fireplace than for competitive running.

In response to your Mailbag letters published on March 3, from Johnny Butler, "a handful of selfish people can force the rest of the city to suffer," and Brian Cooper, "what makes this part of Burbank so unique?" ("Selfish interests did market project in" and "Rancho should not be the City Council," respectively), I would just like to say, Earth to the uninformed: Butler, we are not a handful of selfish people. We are a large neighborhood with a history and zoning regulations that prohibit the gigantic Whole Foods supermarket that was being forced upon us. And as for Cooper, I'll tell you what makes Rancho so unique.

For Zack Torres and Michelle Callister, it meant learning on the fly while navigating their way through tough stretches of a three-mile course on a relatively warm afternoon. Torres clocked 15 minutes 15 seconds to win the boys’ race and Callister finished in 18:46 to take second in the girls’ race Thursday afternoon at Pacific League Meet No. 2 at Griffith Park.

GRIFFITH PARK — Burroughs High girls' cross-country runner Sadee Martinez was nervous prior to the varsity race at the 16th installment of the Burbank All-City Meet. But that's nothing new; the junior always gets a case of the nerves before a meet. However, she put added pressure on herself because being the reigning champion, she wanted to prove that last season's title wasn't a fluke. If that wasn't enough, Martinez's anxiety was heightened when Bellarmine-Jefferson's Gaby Gonzalez went out fast and took an early lead in Thursday's race at Griffith Park.

Mark R. Madler When Burbank City Treasurer Donna Anderson received a letter announcing she had been chosen the city's Woman of the Year, her initial reaction was: "Why me?" She never knew that she was nominated for the annual award given out by Rep. Adam Schiff's office to celebrate Women's History Month. "I do attend a lot of community functions, so they must see me everywhere," Anderson said of how Schiff's staff knew of her. Anderson was reelected to her second term as city treasurer in February.
