The city's annual July Fourth 5-kilometer and 10-kilometer run and walk have become a city tradition and community asset, a recreation official told the City Council this week. In a report to the council Tuesday, community services supervisor Janet Cates said the 17th running of the races last month drew a field of about 1,000--slightly larger than the previous year. She said the event generally breaks even, but its value to the city transcends dollars and cents.

The city will ask street vendors to not sell Poppers and Silly String during the La Palma Days Parade next month after complaints last year about the items. Council member Duane F. Schuster wanted the city to prohibit the sale of the popular items, sold in most toy stores. Schuster said Poppers make "irritating" noises, and Silly String can be a hazard to people attending the parade because the substance is slippery.
