Football player Michael Vick was signed to play with the Philadelphia Eagles last week. Vick has apologized profusely for his involvement in dog fighting, and many have considered giving him a chance to redeem himself and get his life back on track. But others feel that Vick should not have gotten a second chance and instead should have been banned from the NFL. What do you believe is the value in giving someone a second chance to redeem and improve themselves? Should people be given second chances all of the time (based on the theory that humans learn from their mistakes)

To get the attention of talk show host and motorcycle enthusiast Jay Leno, Betty Young sent a picture of herself aboard a Harley Davidson motorcycle. But Young doesn't want to meet Leno at the NBC Studios in Burbank to get his autograph or gush about how much she likes his late-night gabfest. Instead, the Ohio educator wants to get a message to Leno to knock it off poking fun at community colleges and the students that attend them. "The stereotypes he uses are demeaning to students, alumni and the people who work in our fine colleges," Young said.

GLENDALE — To say Jeff Nelson’s distance-running exploits will live on in area lore would be an understatement. They already do, but if there was any doubt, it will be subsided in the next eight months. For the second time, Nelson will find his way into the Glendale Community College Athletic Hall of Fame. The honor will come seven months removed from him being enshrined into the Burbank High Hall of Fame as part of its first-ever class. For Nelson, a cross-country standout, he will be inducted into the GCC Hall for Outstanding Athletic Achievement, two years removed from getting inducted as part of the state-champion 1980 cross-country squad.

He announced his resignation as Vaqueros coach on Sunday.
