JOHNNY CARSON PARK - Anthony Monroy hurriedly jogged away to the finish line Thursday afternoon after winning the boys' portion of the 21st Burbank All-City Cross-Country Meet at Johnny Carson Park. The Burroughs senior had just won the race in record time, capturing his third straight city championship. But instead of heading out on his cool-down, Monroy made his way to the front of the finish chute. There he cheered on his teammates, often bending over trying to recover from his run. He stayed until every Indian runner finished.

ARCADIA — There were plenty of high points and one major disappointment with the Burbank High and Burroughs track and field teams Friday in the Pacific League finals at Arcadia High. The successes were led by the Indians' Shannon Kermah and Bulldogs' McKenzie Paul, who both captured league titles in two events. One of the most unexpected turn of events occurred with Burroughs' Anthony Monroy. Monroy, who advanced to the Masters Meet last season in the boys' 3,200 meters and wasn't able to train for a number of weeks because of an injured foot, failed to quality to the CIF Southern Section Division I preliminaries in the 3,200.

MEMORIAL FIELD - When Burbank High junior track and field athlete Dennis Palacio ran the 110-meter high hurdles as a freshman, he fell and injured his back. He ran the race only one time since, finishing last. That was until Wednesday, as Palacio was informed the day before that he would be taking part in the event in a Pacific League meet against Burroughs at Memorial Field. With no practice, along with taking part in three additional events, Palacio looked to conquer his hurdle nemesis against the Indians.

OLIVE PARK — For most of the Hap Minor Baseball season, players were mainly concerned with team-orientated goals, like winning divisional titles. But at the 54rd annual Burbank Civitan Club Baseball Jamboree, it was a time for individual accomplishments in the Burbank Park, Recreation and Community Services event Saturday at Olive Park. The day of events marked the end of the season for the city's premiere baseball league. Nearly 500 players from 41 teams took part.

ARCADIA - There were three compelling local story lines involved with the Pacific League cross-country finals Thursday at Arcadia Park. Along with whether the Crescenta Valley High girls' team could capture its ninth straight league championship, there was also the question of would Burroughs' Anthony Monroy be able to win an individual boys' title and could the Arcadia boys' team hold off an upstart Burbank squad? Unfortunately for the area teams and Monroy, the answer on all three counts was no. In an extremely competitive and tight girls' race that was decided in the final few hundred meters, the Falcons fell short of their bid to capture another title as Arcadia pulled out a 24-31 victory.

Several Republican congressmen have come under fire for quoting the Bible as justification for cutting nutritional assistance to America's poor. Congress has moved to slash more than $4 billion from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP - better known as food stamps. In the face of criticism, Representatives Stephen Fincher (R-Tenn) and Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) quoted a verse from 2 Thessalonians: “For even when we were with you, we gave you this command: Anyone unwilling to work should not eat.” Several religion bloggers have pointed out that the quote is completely out of context; its author was referring to “ancient Christians who had stopped working in anticipation of Jesus' Second Coming.” They have also pointed to the irony of using a biblical quote when, as Rev. Jennifer Butler puts it, “From cover to cover, the Bible is 100 percent clear that God requires us to care for our brothers and sisters in poverty.” Q: What's your take on this?

The Supreme Court ruled last week that a city in Utah did not have to display a monument from an obscure local religious group in a public park, even though the park contained a display featuring the Ten Commandments. The religious group, known as Summum, argued that if the city displayed a Christian message on public property, it had an obligation to give all other religions equal space. The court, however, ruled that the 1st Amendment does not cover the right to erect a park monument and that the government could not be expected to appease every group in a community in that regard.
