blr-kimberlie20TextU622V3CQFAMILY FAITH Have you ever needed to look for the silver lining in a cloud? Life is full of unexpected calamities and trials. Sometimes, we are so bombarded that we may wonder where God is in the midst of it all. I find that the more difficult life is, the more I am forced to let go and allow God to take control. It is only when circumstances are completely out of my control that I am able to hand the baton over to God and say, "I trust you. Let your will be done," and allow Him to run with it. Times like this help me to find my greatest peace in where God wants to grow me as a person.

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.

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.
