GLENDALE — A pair of workers planted another tree on the sidewalk at Adams Square Wednesday, putting some finishing touches on a long-awaited streetscape project. The project's completion is about a month away. But already, the street and landscaping improvements, where an enclave of shops and residential homes on Chevy Chase Drive, Acacia Avenue, Adams Street and Park Avenue co-exist against a hillside backdrop, lend a European feel. There's even an old fountain and a newly-installed trellis to complete the look.

GLENDALE — Ongoing construction at Glendale Community College is mostly on schedule, but for students, a lot is riding on completion of the new parking structure. "I'm kind of disappointed because I'm planning on transferring by September," said Theo Sloan, 19, a student at the community college. "It's a good idea, it's just I won't get to use it." By the time of its completion this summer, the $24.7-million parking structure will have a total of 1,185 parking spots.

Students go to college to earn high marks. Now Glendale Community College has a report card of its own. The California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office Tuesday released performance profiles for each of the system's 112 campuses, a new accountability feature known as the Student Success Scorecard. Born out of the Student Success Task Force that was assembled in 2011 to modernize the mission of California community colleges, the scorecard details certificate and degree attainment, transfer rates and other data.

I've been reading a lot about the 710 gap, most of it negative. I believe the problem is that today people have built their own worlds around themselves. People ask, “how does this affect me?” instead of, “how does this affect everyone?” People have lost the concept of community. We need to think of the whole. The completion of a freeway would benefit the whole. Joseph Steckermeier Glendale

The short-sighted attitude of NIMBY Glendale residents completely misses the big picture. The completion of the Long Beach (710) Freeway is not really an expansion, but simply a completion of a freeway that should have been finished years ago (“Freeway expansions not the answer,” July 24). This missing link creates heavily unbalanced traffic patterns on other freeways and highways, especially the Harbor (110) and the Golden State (5) Freeway (which, of course, also runs through Glendale)

Albert Hofmann’s Community Commentary on the 710 Freeway (“710 extension would have its advantages,” June 13) is an excellent analysis of a problem that the Glendale community, as well as all of the surrounding communities, have endured for years because of the self-serving interests of what appears to be a majority of the residents of South Pasadena. I have always been amazed that the city of South Pasadena could stop the completion of a portion of a state freeway system that affects not just intra-state commerce, but also inter-state commerce.

City Should Lobby for Resurfacing 210 I found the guest column by Charles Cooper interesting however somewhat misleading as are most articles on the completion of the 710 Freeway ["710 Ways to Mess up a Freeway," Aug. 10]. First, the 210 Freeway was designed as an URBAN BYPASS to allow cars and trucks to avoid the urban center of Los Angeles. One look at the map and that is obvious. It is operating as such now and will be even more so when it is connected to the 10 Freeway in Redlands next year.

The time was changed, the location was changed, but the tune remained the same. The meeting of the CV Town Council took place on Thursday evening, May 21 and was moved from the CV High School library to the Sparr Heights Community Center with a town forum setting beginning at 6:30 rather than its regular 7 p.m. start time. However, when members of the Department of Transportation stepped up to give its presentation on the progress of the 710 Tunnel project, the crowd sounded its disapproval of the multi-billion dollar plan.

Claudia Peschiutta DOWNTOWN - The cost of renovating and modernizing Crescenta Valley High School has gone up, again. It's been less than a month since the Glendale Board of Education was asked to consider how to handle the rising cost of the project, which had jumped to $41.9 million. At a meeting today, board members will face a new price tag -- $45 million. At least one board member was not surprised by the increase. "What we have here is a project that has expanded by the failure of the board and the staff to establish a cap," Pam Ellis said.

John Burroughs and Burbank high schools will soon have the long-awaited safety netting around their baseball fields to protect neighbors, cars and students from fly balls. Several of Burbank Unified School District's other summer modernization projects are also nearing completion. "It's coming along wonderfully, all the summer projects are," Chief of Facilities Officer Craig Jellison said. The school board originally approved the construction of the safety netting in November 2004, which they believed would be completed in time for baseball season in March.

GLENDALE - Whether lining up for a serve or handling the outside hitting responsibilities, Min Kim came prepared to have an impact on the Crescenta Valley High boys' volleyball team. The junior outside hitter first got the Falcons off on the right note with a couple of aces before setting the stage on offense with one of his better efforts of the season. Kim finished with 12 kills and three aces Wednesday to lift visiting Crescenta Valley to a 25-17, 32-30, 25-18 Pacific League victory against Glendale.

GLENDALE - Having a surplus of depth has been a blessing throughout the season for the members of the Glendale Community College men's tennis team. It's led to the Vaqueros posting a winning record and it's helped move them one step closer to accomplishing something for the first time since 2005 - winning the Western State Conference championship. “It's been a huge thing to have,” said Glendale Coach Bob MacKay, whose team posted a hard-fought 6-3 conference home victory Tuesday against Bakersfield.

The completion of what will become Glendale Community College's largest building may be pushed back after crews discovered groundwater while working on the site, delaying construction by more than a month at least, officials said. In October, crews began work on the school's lab/college services building, a 90,000-square-foot structure that will house computer, anthropology and writing labs as well as the culinary arts program and additional classrooms. But as crews drilled roughly 60 feet below ground to build a retaining wall, they discovered groundwater, prompting a delay in construction.

SANTA BARBARA - Ten minutes after the conclusion of Glendale City College's American Division Pacific Conference football game, Vaqueros Jose Sanchez, Carlos Gonzalez, Anthony Acevedo and Manuel Garabedian playfully tackled head coach John Rome to the ground. The gesture figured natural since Glendale's defense tallied seven sacks, forced three turnovers and had taken down all other comers in a come-from-behind 24-17 road victory Saturday evening over Santa Barbara City College. “This is special to us because we're trying to change a culture,” said Rome, who was helped up back to his feet by his players.

LA CRESCENTA - It seemed as though Kirsten Cabarong had an answer near the end of each game for the Glendale High girls' volleyball team during Tuesday's Pacific League match against rival Crescenta Valley. When the Nitros needed a key point or block, they turned to the senior middle blocker to deliver. Cabarong relished the role of being a force on the court. Cabarong finished with 13 kills and nine blocks to spark visiting Glendale to a 25-19, 25-23, 25-19 win in the first of two head-to-head meetings against Crescenta Valley.

COMPTON - There's no place like the West Zone for the Arroyo Seco Saints 18U summer baseball team.

The victory was the fifth in a row over a four-day span for the Saints (31-5), who advance to Thursday's opening round of the Palomino World Series versus Jakarta, Indonesia at noon back at the Urban Youth Center.

Despite a deluge of rain, John Huh completed his first round at the 113th rendition of the United States Open on Thursday. Some of the other competitors weren't so lucky. Inclement weather forced play to be suspended to Friday, leading to a backlog of players who needed to still finish their respective first rounds on the day scheduled for the second round. Huh had his original second-round tee time pushed back more than three hours and wasn't able to finish on Friday. Huh registered a three-over-par through 13 holes Friday at Merion Golf Club's East Course in Ardmore, Pa. Huh is tied for 23rd with the projected cut at eight-over.
