California community colleges are starting the fall term on an upbeat note, with most boosting enrollment and the number of classes offered, according to a survey of the state's two-year schools released Wednesday. About 90% of the campuses that answered the survey reported higher enrollment than last fall, and 84% are increasing course sections. Of the state's 112 community colleges, 95 responded to the survey from the chancellor's office. Overall, enrollment is expected to increase by 2.5% and course sections by 5%. About 60,000 more students are expected to enroll systemwide this fall, officials said.

A Sept. 11 ceremony was canceled at Sierra College on Wednesday after a 20-year-old student was spotted with a fake hand grenade. Two female students reported the incident after they noticed what they thought was a grenade on the dash of a student's vehicle as he was parking his car. The male student then put the device into a backpack and went to class.

There are two ways to analyze Cal State Northridge's victory in a five-team California Collegiate Athletic Assn. track and field meet at CSUN on Saturday. The first theory is based on the hypothesis that the Matadors are much better than Coach Don Strametz has let on. After all, Northridge lost its best sprinter (Kevin Hendrix) to academic ineligibility, and its best hurdler (Tyrone Jeffries) and best middle-distance runner (Will James) were sidelined with a back and leg injury, respectively.

Sierra Madre City College--whose emblem is a turkey, whose motto is "gobble gobble" and whose purpose defies explanation--has ended its academic year. The term lasted a little longer than usual, beginning with a mobile bar in the July 4 parade and ending with a concert in the park last Sunday. Founded in 1980 for no particular reason, Sierra Madre City College might best be described as a state of mind, because it certainly isn't a college.

Johnston has been bothered by nagging neck and shoulder pain most of this season.

Greg Oden's eagerly awaited college debut was a lot of fun -- even if he didn't get to show off one of his favorite skills. "It felt really good. I had fun out there with my teammates," Oden said after getting 14 points and 10 rebounds in No. 3 Ohio State's 78-58 victory over Valparaiso on Saturday at Columbus, Ohio. "I didn't get a chance to dunk. You could tell I was anxious. I traveled, like, eight times."
