Since Glendale Community College officials turned the college into a smoking-free campus last spring, turnout at the weekly nicotine anonymous meetings has been slim. And, during the fall semester, the college's police officers issued 15 citations to students who were caught smoking on campus, according to campus Police Chief Gary Montecuollo. Jessica Gillooly, chair of the college's psychology department who has overseen the meetings throughout the fall semester, said few students, professors or staff members have attended the meetings.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - Four games into the season, the Glendale Community College football team had alternated winning and then losing games to come into Saturday night's American Division Pacific Conference contest against visiting Santa Monica College at .500. The Vaqueros dropped their league opener last week, so it appeared it was time for another victory even though their latest opponent was the reigning conference champion that had not lost a game in Pacific play since 2010. The contest turned out to be so close.

Glendale Community College's award-winning cheer program will likely be dropped from the school catalog this fall in an effort to save $25,000 annually, officials said. The program has been put on the chopping block as college officials scour the 2013-14 budget for cost savings. Although the cheer team has been sponsored by the college's athletic funds, it is not an official intercollegiate sport. And during tough times, Glendale Community College can no longer afford to keep it on the books, said Paul Schlossman, dean of student affairs.

This story has been corrected, see below for details. At a hastily arranged town hall-style meeting Thursday, Glendale Community College officials announced plans to cut $13 million from the college's 2012-13 budget, regardless of the outcome of a state tax initiative that goes before voters in November. A major part of the cost-cutting - $9 million - will come in the form of significant pay cuts for 115 classified employees, who will see their work schedules reduced by one month if the plan is approved by the board of trustees.
