 Coach Tom Harp knows how to win the big matches at Granada Hills High, and he guided the Highlanders to their fourth City Section Division I championship in the last five seasons on Saturday night with a 25-21, 26-24, 25-13 victory over Palisades at Roybal. Granada Hills was seeded No. 2 behind the Dolphins and had lost to Palisades in a five-set match earlier in the season, but Rachel Kayongo contributed 15 kills to lead a balanced attack. In the Southern Section Division 1AA final, top-seeded Los Alamitos won the championship with a 25-23, 23-25, 25-15, 25-23 victory over Santa Ana Mater Dei at Santiago Canyon College.

Starting Saturday, the community college will set aside 200 parking spaces for vehicle owners to peddle their Plymouths and sell their Scoupes. No pressure. No bad suits. A Santa Cruz company does the work, charging sellers $35 for a spot.

Recent high school graduates and mid-career adults are flocking to community colleges this fall as California campuses report enrollment jumps tied to the weak economy. Administrators say that when the economy dips, enrollment at community colleges typically surges. This fall, students are banking on these modest workhorses of California's higher education system to ease their way through the economic downturn, opting for the closer, cheaper alternatives to state universities. Older students, in particular, are seeking training at two-year colleges to escape declining industries.
