GRIFFITH PARK — All eight of the area’s high school cross-country teams were affected by the fallout and poor air conditions stemming from the Station fire. Squads from Burbank, Burroughs, Providence and Bellarmine-Jefferson highs missed four to five days of preseason practice time last week because it was unhealthful to run outdoors. Although the programs had to take some time off from their training, that break didn’t seem to set back some of the elite runners in the city during Thursday’s 19th Burbank All-City Cross-Country Meet at Griffith Park.

BURBANK — Hundreds of shoppers crowded a parking lot Wednesday for the grand opening of natural grocer Henry’s Farmers Market, two years after residents effectively blocked a Whole Foods Market from moving into the city. The first customers walked through the doors at 9 a.m., after waiting in line for more than 16 hours in anticipation of free groceries. Each of the first 200 shoppers at the store got a reusable shopping bag filled with $75 worth of snacks, fruits, vitamins and other items, said Aimee Della Bitta, a marketing manager for Irvine-based Henry’s.

Path is no picnic for bicyclists This is in response to John Gaskill’s “Bike speed limit not required” Community Commentary in the Nov. 5 Burbank Leader. I wholeheartedly agree with Gaskill’s commentary. When I first read about the Chandler Bikeway being proposed several years ago, I thought, “What a wonderful alternative to other options for riding my bicycle while enhancing the beauty of the neighborhood along Chandler Boulevard.” The other alternatives being: the potentially unsafe bike routes on city streets, the trash-strewn Los Angeles River bike path and unsafe bike routes through Griffith Park.

GRIFFITH PARK — Not being familiar with a course meant absolutely nothing for a pair of Crescenta Valley High cross-country athletes. 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 — It had been more than a year since Burbank and Burroughs highs were able to run on their home cross-country course at Griffith Park. Because of a fire in 2007 that damaged a portion of the park, the locals had to move their home meets to different venues last season, which included a Pacific League event. It was a homecoming of sorts Thursday for the Indians and Bulldogs, as they battled Bellarmine-Jefferson, Providence and Village Christian in the 18th Burbank All-City Cross-Country Meet.
