GLENDALE — Learning to construct a team on the fly can be challenging. For Glendale Community College men’s golf Coach Greg Osbourne, it’s been exactly that and more. Scanning the area, state and western portion of the country for qualified athletes, there’s been so much for Osbourne to consider since the Vaqueros finished last season — the program’s first since the program was scrapped because of budget cuts in 1985 — at 6-71 and eighth in the formidable Western State Conference.

One of the major strengths in recent seasons for the Glendale Community College men's tennis program was having a bona fide No. 1 singles player on board to solidify its lineup. Among those who have attacked the net and returned powerful backhand and forehand shots with excellence for the Vaqueros were Dylan Kim, Rony Yeghnazary and Alex Sarkissian. All competed in the state tournament, with Kim and Sarkissian each winning a championship. Now, Trevor Campbell will look to take his place in the pantheon of elite singles players for Glendale college, which opened its season Thursday with a nonconference road match against Fullerton College.

Although two local Democrats were happy when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger proposed a $125.6-billion budget Tuesday that would increase payments to education and transportation, they were still concerned that other issues might not be addressed as generously.

Frommer will announce his plan to raise billions of dollars to construct railroad overpasses and underpasses as soon as next week, he said.
