Believe it: The Glendale Community College women's volleyball team would like to become heavy hitters. It's a program that's struggled for many years, culminating in it being shut down in 2002 because the college's athletic department decided the team couldn't field a sufficient amount of players. Things have changed since. Granted, the Vaqueros haven't posted a winning record since the program resurrected. But, they appear to have followed through on their well-conceived plan to recruit from the local talent base.

Alex Coolman CIVIC AUDITORIUM -- About 250 city employees spent Tuesday puffing into the plastic mouths of mannequins and learning to jump-start an ailing heart as part of a clinic to ready Glendale's staff for CPR emergencies. The program, held in the Glendale Civic Auditorium, will be repeated in January and February.

All of Glendale's police officers and firefighters and some of its utility workers receive regular CPR training, Biggs said.
