      TOP STORIES:

      *  OPTIONAL COLORS: Faced with faculty and student objections,
         trustees of the West Valley-Mission Community College District
         in California rejected a plan to add American flags to every
         classroom.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i12/12a01403.htm

      *  UNINHABITED LIBRARIES: The rise of online databases and the
         decline of reading rooms signify new challenges for college
         libraries.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i12/12a03501.htm

         *  QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS: At Moraine Valley Community College,
            in Illinois, the library's reference desk must answer
            increasingly complex and time-consuming questions. We offer
            a sampling.
            --> SEE http://chronicle.com/free/v48/i12/12a03501.htm#librarians

      *  EATING THEIR WORDS? Trustees at Houston Community College are
         under fire for retreating to private dinners after their
         monthly meetings.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i12/12a02502.htm

      *  CHANGING THE RULES: The City University of New York will raise
         tuition next semester for students who are illegal immigrants.

      *  'OPEN DOORS:' Foreign enrollments in the United States have
         grown, as more countries try to attract some of those same
         students.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i12/12a04501.htm

      *  MIXED BUDGET MESSAGES: The Senate passed a bill that would
         would keep the maximum Pell Grant at its current level of
         $3,750, instead of raising it by $250, as lobbyists had hoped.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i12/12a02601.htm
      _________________________________________________________________

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  MASCOT WATCH: St. Petersburg College, which recently started
         offering four-year degrees, changed its team name from the
         Trojans to the Titans, critics say, because the condom jokes
         got old. Four other institutions are also featured.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i12/12a00801.htm

      *  JOINING FORCES: Some Blackboard users who say the company is
         too slow in responding to technical problems have formed an
         independent users group.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i12/12a04001.htm

      *  CONSOLIDATION PAYS OFF: The top three providers of
         course-management software -- Blackboard, eCollege, and WebCT
         -- say they will soon see their first profits.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i12/12a04002.htm

      *  CRIME AND PUNISHMENT: Student activists are planning a week of
         demonstrations this month to persuade college presidents to
         denounce a federal law that denies financial aid to students
         convicted of drug offenses.
