When Michelle Callister began her days with the Crescenta Valley High cross-country program, she was a freshman on a varsity squad poised to begin a tradition. Three seasons later, Callister has been a focal point in the Falcons’ girls’ program becoming one of the most well-regarded in all of California. Upon her senior-year curtain call, Callister led a flock of Falcons that proved a throng of naysayers wrong by holding strong to its Pacific League crown and status as one of the state’s best.

LA CAÑADA - While the city of La Cañada only includes three girls' programs, an argument could be made that the hotbed of area girls' cross-country activity was none other than the Foothill (210) Freeway hamlet. La Cañada High, Flintridge Prep and Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy all advanced deep into the postseason with perhaps the Spartans having the most successful of seasons. La Cañada not only captured its second straight Rio Hondo League title, but the Spartans also boasted the league's individual champion in senior Sonja Cwik, who dethroned then-reigning All-Area Runner of the Year Helena Van Loan of South Pasadena High.

My wife and I just returned from a long weekend in Yosemite National Park -- a delightful experience. Imagine our surprise when we were able to buy gas for our car at $2.49 a gallon anywhere from Selma on the south of Fresno to Oakhurst some 50 miles into the mountains. Imagine our dismay to find local prices at the same stations, Chevron and Arco, this a.m. at $2.73 to $2.63 -- 15 to 25 cents higher. Are we being ripped off or what? Perhaps we should all consciously seek out the lowest cost gas. Maybe the companies with the 9 billion quarterly profits will notice the loss.

It was a brilliant day on Friday at the CIF Masters for La Cañada high jumper Jonathan Sparks, who cleared 6-04 with ease, passing on his first attempt. On 6-06, he knocked over the bar on his first attempt, but managed to get over unscathed on his second attempt and relished his victory with a fist pump. With that jump, Sparks had snagged a spot at the CIF State championships in Fresno this Friday. “It felt good,” Sparks said moments after the high jump finished.
