NORTHEAST GLENDALE — The number of students taking online courses at Glendale Community College has increased nearly 10% since 2004, administrators said. The shift to the Web comes as students have had a harder time squeezing into programs and lecture halls as the college trims down its course offerings to accommodate reduced state funding. About 5.5% of students were enrolled in either a full or partial online course in fall 2004, but by last spring, 15% of students were learning from a distance.

Jackson Bell James Cisneros and Ed Fox, cadets at the Glendale Arroyo Seco Fire Academy, recently received hands-on training that wasn't graded on a letter scale. Their passing score was marked by a life saved. On May 1, the trainees were celebrating Fox's girlfriend's birthday at BJ's Restaurant & Brewery in downtown Burbank when Fox's brother, who just arrived, told them that smoke was billowing from the nearby Avalon Hotel. First thinking it was a joke, they crossed the street to check it out. They then heard a cry for help coming from a woman trapped on the building's third floor.
