GLENDALE — It’s been 10 months and a little over a week since last season ended, but when the Glendale Community College football team kicks off its 2009 season at home against West Los Angeles College today, it will be 11 months to the day since the Vaqueros last won a game. For the entire team, but particularly the 20 returning sophomores second-year Coach John Rome welcomes back, much of the focus during the buildup to the new season has centered around improving on the previous one, in which the team showed early promise, but splintered under the weight of a rash of injuries and a five-game losing streak to play out the schedule.

PREDICTABLE AND NOT THAT FUNNY Megan Kelly, 15, is a ninth-grader at Crescenta Valley High School. I found this movie to be a real bore. I thought the plot was predictable, and I disliked the pop star angle, because it wasn't believable. I found it hard to believe Lizzie could learn an entire dance routine in high heels in a couple of hours, when she couldn't even walk across the platform at her graduation without tripping. I also was disappointed that Miranda, Lizzie's best friend, wasn't in the movie.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — The emotions of a trying, difficult and all-around tough season were apparent on Glendale Community College Coach John Rome's face. Minutes after the Vaqueros suffered a 47-41 loss to Santa Monica College on Saturday in a Pacific Conference American Division game at Sartoris Field, Rome was in tears when he talked about the determination of his team. "These are my sons," Rome said. "I believe that. I'm proud of these guys every day. They've never quit.

If you want to see the best holiday pageant of the season, forget dropping $200 a pop at the Ahmanson Theatre for a touring production of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” For wit, heart, fun and generosity of spirit, go see Westminster Presbyterian Church’s “Nativity! The Musical,” a hodgepodge of a pageant play that somehow manages to combine Borscht-belt one-liners and pizza delivery boys with the classic Nativity tale. As conceived by entertainment industry veterans Greg Baldwin (“Avatar: The Last Airbender”)

GLENDALE — Glendale Community College Athletic Director John Cicuto didn’t have to look farther than the press box to find the school’s new football coach. Glendale college named John Rome as its latest football coach Monday. Rome, who served as offensive coordinator for the Vaqueros the past six seasons, succeeds Cicuto, who resigned as coach in December after 19 years to concentrate on his duties as the school’s athletic director. Rome, a Burbank resident who turned 52 on Monday, will be the program’s third coach since 1972 and 18th overall since it formed in 1928.

GLENDALE — Spring practice is the time of the year when community college football teams begin to lay the foundation for what they hope will be a successful season in the fall. High school seniors soon to be incoming freshman are acclimated into the system, returning players begin to take on larger roles and squads work on developing solid team chemistry that they hope will eventually propel them to victory. At Glendale Community College, the Vaqueros have had to tackle those issues while transitioning to a new head coach at the same time.

GLENDALE — He says his team has been working on its tackling issues all season. It just hasn't been able to fix its problems. Glendale Community College football Coach John Rome was left searching for answers to his team's defensive woes after a 48-17 nonconference loss to East Los Angeles College on Saturday at Sartoris Field. "It's very apparent we have a very difficult time tackling," said Rome, whose team dropped to 0-3 and has surrendered an average of 43.6 points per game in the process.

Molly Shore The past year has been life-altering for resident Donna German. In that time, German, who once topped the scales at nearly 300 pounds, lost more than 100 pounds through Weight Watchers and is preparing to walk in Sunday's City of Rome Marathon in Italy, as a member of Team Diabetes. "Between [the marathon] and Weight Watchers, my whole life has changed," said German, 61. "I consider doing a marathon a miracle." German, a systems analyst at the Nestle headquarters in Glendale, said she waited until she lost 50 pounds before she started daily lunchtime walks in July.

GLENDALE — Between a coaching staff rich in Vaqueros history and an expansive array of homegrown talent, the 2008 Glendale Community College football team is certainly keeping the “Community” in GCC. While first-year Coach John Rome estimates he’s just about the only coach on his staff who didn’t once wear the Vaquero uniform, he’s got a strong background in the program, having served as offensive coordinator for...
