La Cañada resident and Sport Chalet director Eric Olberz raced in last weekend's 33rd annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, finishing 16th out of 32 in the SCCA SPEED GT Championship. "It was a great race and his best qualifying time," said sponsor 911 Design president Loren Beggs. "Considering several of the other drivers ahead of him are paid professionals, he did very well." Olberz was driving a 2007 Porsche 911 GT-3 in the GT2 Class. Four different classes of cars — classified by horsepower differential — raced at the same time on the Long Beach Course.

Very few La Cañadans turned out at City Hall Tuesday night as tallies of La Cañada Flintridge precincts came in from the City Council election. However, voters of this city made a not-too-bad showing at the polls, with 22% of residents casting their votes. That’s opposed to the only about 15% of voters who cast their ballots in nearby Los Angeles, according to L.A.’s City Clerk’s office. Up for grabs in La Cañada were two of the five seats on the council. Those seats were retained in a decisive victory for incumbents: Mayor Steve Del Guercio and Councilman Dave Spence.

Yet another remake for summer audiences in "The Omen." The 1976 original stared Gregory Peck and Lee Remick as parents of the son with an unusual birth mark, "666." The story continued with the small boy causing death and destruction as he grew through that film and several sequels. This story has Leiv Schreiber and Julia Stiles as the little devil's parents. It also has an added bonus of starring Mia Farrow, who knows a little something about birthing the devil since portrayed the mom of one in "Rosemary's Baby."

'Hidalgo' is as cool as 'Raiders' I never thought there would be an action/adventure movie as great as "Raiders of the Lost Ark." "Hidalgo" is the first movie that matches Raiders' incredible coolness. Based on the true life story of Frank Hopkins, this movie is about a spiritually lost man and his mustang. Hopkins (Viggo Mortensen) and his horse, Hidalgo, are invited to enter a 3,000-mile race against Arabia's finest riders and horses after Wild Bill Hickock claims that Hidalgo and Hopkins are the greatest horse and rider team in the world.

WOODLAND HILLS — For 17 seasons, Flintridge Prep’s boys’ cross-country team ruled the Prep League with unprecedented dominance. But on Saturday afternoon, a new king was crowned, as archrival Pasadena Poly ended Flintridge Prep’s dynastic tradition, running past the Rebels by a 34-48 margin at the Prep League finals at Pierce College. “It had to end sometime,” said Rebels Coach Ingrid Herskind, who was at the helm for the previous 12 titles.

WOODLAND HILLS — After its 16-year reign as Prep League champion came to an unexpected halt last season, the Flintridge Prep boys' cross-country team needed to regroup. Instead of stewing, the Rebels opted to get back to the basics with the mind set of upholding their rich tradition and putting in extra miles in their quest to grab the league mantle back. Prep's showing couldn't have been any better after a fast-moving storm moved into the region about five hours before the race began.

SAN MARINO - It isn't often that finishing second earns a louder and more elated cheer than taking first. However, after the conclusion of Thursday afternoon's Rio Hondo League cross-country finals, La Cañada High's Sonja Cwik couldn't help but holler a bit before hugging teammates. That's because the junior, who finished second individually, led the Spartans' reconquest of the Rio Hondo League title as La Cañada defeated defending league champion South Pasadena, 32-37. “I'm just really happy and am so excited.

Being a celebrated middle-distance runner, one might think Greg Dotson would cringe at the mention of running long-distance races. Moreover, it would be expected that the Burbank High standout would shudder at the suggestion of taking to the track as a sprinter. However, Dotson, who just finished his senior season, is a rare breed. Not only does the champion 800-meter runner actually enjoy distance running, he also jumps at the chance to compete in the sprints. "I really got more into the [1,600]
