Huntington Beach resident Lynn Morgan taught art in Orange County high schools and colleges for 30 years. But as soon as she retired three years ago, she went from teacher to student, taking drawing and painting classes at Coastline Community College. It's a choice that has paid off in increased exposure, as Morgan is the only Huntington Beach resident exhibiting at the first major show at the college's new art gallery. "I didn't realize I was shouldering that whole burden," she joked.

A proposal to build a four-story hotel, 88 residential units and retail space next to Fountain Valley City Hall has roused opposition from some neighbors who call the project a potential traffic and safety hazard. The Fountain Valley Civic Center Specific Plan, submitted by the Olson Co. and Ayres Hotels, seeks to revitalize an 8.62-acre parcel that includes an abandoned Safeco Insurance outlet, a police storage facility and a building leased to Coastline Community College. Don Ayres, a principal for the company, said the project would bring tax revenue and jobs to the city and provide lodgings to complement expanding businesses, such as the new Hyundai Motor America Inc. headquarters.

No one knows what kind of sculpture Jennifer Reifsneider will create Monday through Thursday in the Coastline Art Gallery. For that matter, Reifsneider doesn’t know either. The Long Beach artist, who is the first artist-in-residence for Coastline Community College, plans to show up at the gallery, 10156 Adams Ave., Monday morning with 30 to 40 balls of twine, a few sewing machines and a mood to experiment. Reifsneider has asked Coastline students and members of the public to stop by the gallery, offer ideas and even join in the making of the sculpture — or sculptures, if that’s the way it pans out. “I don’t know what they’re going to come up with, and I’m letting that be part of the process,” said Reifsneider, a candidate for a master’s in fine arts at Cal State Long Beach.

A large map of the world hangs on the wall of her office. It has no pins, no marks, not even a star on it — those are on another map. This one is to look up the far away places where the men and women Jocelyn Groot talks to on the phone are stationed. “I’m terrible in geography, and when I’m talking to a [student], I like to get up and go look,” she said. Groot talks to men and women serving in the military from all over the world as Coastline Community College’s new dean of military and contract education.
