Touches every human emotion Leslie Thurston of Burbank is an actress and substitute teacher. It would be pointless to say anything critical about "John Q.," so, I won't. Everyone should see this film and bring the hankies. However, you won't need them as much as you think. Surprisingly, there is humor throughout this film, especially from the talented Eddie Griffin. Rest assured, Denzel Washington doesn't disappoint, either. Yet, it is the comedic element that gives the story emotional balance and sense of reality.

GLENDALE — An impressive year warranted quite a few awards for the Glendale Community College football team as was recently announced by the American Conference Pacific Division. The Vaqueros, who finished tied for third in the division with a 6-4 overall mark, merited four first-team and seven second-team selections in posting the program's first winning season since 2006. "Honestly, I thought we deserved a few more picks," Vaqueros sixth-year Coach John Rome said. "But I'm happy with what we received.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — Five yards away from a potential game-tying touchdown, the Glendale Community College football team may have fumbled away its best chance of winning this season. A botched exchange between third-string quarterback Anthony Carter and running back Joe Wiggan at the five-yard line was recovered by Los Angeles Pierce College with a little over a minute left and preserved a Brahmas' 28-20 Pacific Conference American Division win Saturday night at Sartoris Field.

GLENDALE — Much like the program itself, the 2011 Glendale Community College men's golf team has become better and better as the season has progressed. It's a huge factor as to why the Vaqueros are set to make their inaugural appearance in the state championship, which will be held at 8 a.m. Monday at Kings Country Club in Hanford. "We have a good lineup and we have some experienced players," said Glendale college men's Coach Greg Osbourne, whose team finished second at the Southern California Regionals on Monday at Bermuda Dunes Country Club and will be one of eight squads competing for state prominence.

GLENDALE — This year’s Glendale Community College baseball team will feature some intriguing freshman talent, as well as some sophomore holdovers returning for their second year at Stengel Field. But for Coach Chris Cicuto, much of the heart and soul and, ultimately, the success of the Vaqueros will rest on their core of third-year players. Infielders Danny Casey from Bellarmine-Jefferson High, Burroughs’ Miguel Alvarez, outfielders Brian Ward and Chris Arredondo and pitcher Tony Banuelos, Jr. — another former Indian — all of whom have redshirted a year during their stint at Glendale college, are back for their final year of eligibility and all will be asked, to varying degrees, to take a leading role in the clubhouse and on the field.

GLENDALE — The six quarterbacks and three wide receivers who came out to Glendale Community College on Saturday morning for the Fusion Football Camp comprised a class that was admittedly smaller than what directors Bob Gagliano and Burbank resident Chris Thomas were hoping for, if not expecting. That didn’t stop the two retired NFL veterans from giving their full attention, energy and knowledge to a handful of the area’s aspiring football standouts who came out to participate in an offshoot of the five-month football clinic developed by Gagliano and Thomas that is quickly gaining notoriety for its unique methods and tangible results.

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.

Students were free to choose the styles and concepts without being tied down to a particular theme for this year’s Annual Student Art Show at Glendale Community College. That diversity is what makes this show a standout, said Roger Dickes, gallery director. “The work is very diverse and the show doesn’t have a theme,” Dickes said. “There are so may different approaches that students engage with.” The show also provides an opportunity for prospective art students to learn about the art courses that are available to them, Dickes said.
