GLENDALE — Like they did following a season-opening loss, the members of the Glendale Community College football team will attempt to bounce back from defeat. Running off four straight wins following the setback in the opener, the Vaqueros hope to duplicate the win streak in their remaining four regular-season contests on the heels of a 19-10 inter-divisional loss to College of the Canyons. The first phase begins when Glendale college travels to face Compton in a Western State Conference Pacific Division matchup at 7 p.m. today at Cabrillo High in Long Beach.

Today's Community Forum page provided me with some small measures of amusement (as it usually does). Today's reader comments provoked no reaction in me except, of course, the small amusement of seeing dumb comments at the top of the letter section. It was actually a few days ago that there were a few letter writers all fussy over the specter of a possible rent-control or rent-stabilization ordinance. For some reason, most seem to not distinguish betwixt rent control and rent stabilization, but like poison ivy, they just don't like it and equate it with "European Socialism."

Glendale's Deukmejian Wilderness Park is a hidden treasure for many residents. But a dozen residents felt swatting flies was worth it in exchange for an informative reconnaissance mission of the park that the Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley hosted last Saturday. Attendees got the opportunity to learn about the site's history, ecosystem, geology, climate and infrastructure. The park, primarily used for hiking and picnicking, covers more than 700 acres. It offers miles of hiking trails and is the Crescenta Valley's only entrance to the vast Angeles National Forest.

GLENDALE ? The following are odds and ends from the local sports scene. ? Spending the holidays in the land Down Under The new year came a bit earlier than usual for Troy Mulcahey ? 19 hours earlier, in fact. That?s because the Crescenta Valley Little League standout spent the holidays in Australia. ?He says he?s having fun over there,? said Troy?s father Dan , a highly regarded area Little League coach, a few days after his son had departed.

In a small studio on the far edge of Glendale, a worldwide flow of music is in a moment of transition. On the turntable is a 45rpm disc of spectral, hypnotic sounds from 1980, as radio DJ Lee Joseph begins winding down his two-hour show on LuxuriaMusic.com . The record is “I'm Sorry,” a vinyl artifact of outsider music by the all-female art-punk band the Inflatable Boy Clams, a quartet as obscure as the music is exotic. Standing just outside the doorway is Kat Griffin, whose “Madly Cocktail” show is up next.
