Alecia Foster GLENDALE -- U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale) hopes to ease some of the restrictions governing the federal Pell Grant program. Pell grants are awarded each year to students headed for college. The funds can be used only toward the cost of tuition, which Schiff hopes to change through a new bill he will introduce to the House of Representatives. The new legislation also would expand requirements for the federal HOPE scholarship and Lifetime Learning tax credits from covering tuition only to the cost of attending college.

Isn't it amazing that, according to a recent press release that has appeared in most of the local newspapers, Carol Liu thinks the National Guard "deserves to be rewarded and never be penalized for their sacrifices"? Yet, on April 22 of this year, it was Liu who penalized the National Guard when she voted for illegal aliens to receive tuition assistance and against National Guard members for the same benefit. When her constituents learned of what she had done and told her so with a blizzard of calls and letters, she was shamed into sponsoring a bill to provide tuition benefits for the National Guard that became law on Sept.

For the 400 undocumented students at Glendale Community College who cannot legally drive, apply for federal loans, or work to pay for school, the California Dream Act is still just that - a dream. That's because while, for the first time this spring, the California Dream Act will allow students who moved to the U.S. before age 16 to apply for state grants and tuition fee waivers, significant barriers will persist. Without a Social Security number, even the most basic efforts at trying to cover costs can seem insurmountable - due mostly to legal hurdles, not a lack of will.

GLENDALE ? In an attempt to attract and retain more students, the Glendale Community College Board of Trustees is expected to approve a ground-breaking plan that would allow students to spread their education costs over the course of a semester. The cost of tuition, textbooks, parking and other fees can amount to $900 per semester for some students, who must pay those fees in one lump sum or take out student loans, said Steven White, vice president of instructional services. The cost of tuition is $26 per unit per semester, so a full-time student who signs up for 15 units per semester pays $390.

The U.S. government, the largest purveyor of loans to colleges, does absolutely nothing to try to reduce the cost of the tuition they pay for on behalf of the student debtor. Our government should negotiate tuition by stating to any given college that their debtor will go elsewhere unless they lower the cost. The government would be able to dictate in part such change in lowering tuition because of its enormous buying power of education. Such is done in the medical industry through Medicare/Medicaid, and such can be done in the educational arena.

California State University students could see tuition rise 9% next fall unless the state boosts funding to cover enrollment growth, urgent maintenance, student services and other costs, officials said Wednesday. The proposal is included in a Cal State budget request that seeks $397 million in increased funding for the 2012-13 school year. The Board of Trustees is scheduled to vote on the plan Wednesday at a meeting in Long Beach. The tuition hike would mean an additional $498 annually for full-time undergraduates, raising the yearly tuition bill to $5,970 from $5,472.

Enrollment at Glendale Adventist Academy’s kindergarten through eighth-grade program increased 8.6% this year from last year despite an annual enrollment fee that ranges from $7,500 for younger children to $10,872 for high school students.

The No Home Depot Campaign scored a major ? and hopefully, a final ? victory against the home improvement company this week. The battles that raged between the two organizations brought out some ugly facts and equally unattractive accusations. One of the tactics that Home Depot employed, according to the Los Angeles Times, was accusing the No Home Depot Campaign and residents of the area of being ?racist? because they didn?t want day laborers loitering outside the property on Foothill Boulevard.

It is very seldom that I write anything in the first person. I figure I am about as captivating as a dish towel, and try to keep myself out of the read as frequently as possible. However, once in awhile I am so moved by something that I just have to put myself into the mix. The Foothill Summer Theatre, run with passion by Linda Johnson, presented the program at our Kiwanis meeting last week. A scene from their current production of Sweeney Todd was performed by Scott Hurst Jr., who plays Sweeney Todd, James Fowler, who plays Judge Turpin, and AJ Blumenfeld, who plays Tobias.
