The success of 110 seniors who graduated from Providence High School on Saturday will not be judged today or tomorrow, but in a few decades, said commencement speaker Michael Madden, vice president for advocacy and development at Providence Health and Services. The list of renowned universities and colleges that graduates will attend next year is only an interim measure of the class' success, he said. "The long-term measure is how you become leaders in your community," Madden told graduates.

BURBANK HIGH — It is a busy week for the Burbank High and Burroughs track and field teams. Not only did the squads have to go against one another in their annual rivalry meet Tuesday, but the Indians and Bulldogs — along with the rest of the league — will be back in action Friday for the Pacific League preliminaries at Arcadia High. "The only other way to do it would be to run the prelims and finals in the same week," Burroughs Coach John Peebles said. Looking for momentum heading into Friday's meet, the Bulldogs broke some longstanding streaks by sweeping the Indians in Tuesday's event at Burbank High.

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.

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.

ARCADIA - It's safe to say Burbank High's Julia Newton lost sleep thinking about taking part in the Pacific League track and field finals. "Normal people would be nervous an hour before this meet," the sprinter said. "But for me, I was nervous about it for days. I've been thinking a lot about it. " Just a freshman, Newton showed no outward sign of jitters at Friday's event at Arcadia High, as she had a hand in two victories for the Bulldogs, placing first in the girls' 100 meters and running a leg on the winning Burbank girls' 4x100 relay team that set a school record.

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.
